MY OH MY....Has it really been almost a year since I posted something to my blog? Well I will just have to fix that won't I?

This is where I bring my crafts to life and just some of my supplies. You can also see some of my machines I have been collecting.

There on the table is the last machine I was running through it passes to get ready for its new owner...I had a former teacher give me 4 machines that he was just gonna through away till my sister said I may want them...Threee I will find new homes for but I will be keeping the 1950 Singer.

Again some more supplies. I love the two sweater racks in the closet that I stack my yarn in...a whole lot better to see what colors I have and is easier to get to.

I made a resolution to do more crafts this year so I am hoping to post more of what I stay tuned...

Newest project

I am finally getting back into craft mode with the nice weather. I decided to make this little pouch from this site:

I think mine turned out very cute and even want to make a few more. It only took like 1 1/2 hours to make so it was very fast.

Beautiful Iris!

I am not even sure where I got this iris but I just LOVE it! I think it is the most beautiful one I have ever seen. I never even thought about it till my husband mentioned it but it has the coloring from our wedding. I swear I have to take a picture of it ever year it blooms for me!

Christmas Puma & snow dog

I guess my kitty thinks he is a Christmas present...I think he was actually just wanting some sleep away from the dog :-)

And with awaking to about 6" of snow, when Riley went out to go potty he would come back with snowballs in his fur.

I spent 3 hours this morning make up a new web page for just my ornaments I make from burnt out light bulbs. I was selling them to earn enought to buy a laptop which I had always wanted and since in June I was able to fullfill that wish...I need to set a new goal of what to buy! Maybe a new fancy sewing machine...hmmmm makes my mind wander all over the place :-) Click on the title of this post and it will take you to see my babies I have created. I hope you enjoy the trip.

I got to meet fellow knitter Stephanie!!!

Over the last weekend my husband I went to visit family in Rufus, Oregon and on the way home I made arrangements to meet fellow knitter Stephanie in Hood River. When I called she was just heading out the door but agreed to come meet us in the Wal-Mart parking lot. She had said that her son had joked about "look for the tourist" well little did he know he had the right idea. We moved our car to be close to the front of the store, put up 2 chairs under a tree for shade and waited. We told people were were trying out for to become the new greeters. We had a nice visit (about 1 hour) despite the wind which actually did feel good after the heat of Rufus. I got to show her the purse I am making which she said was so much better in person than the pictures and to top it off I handed her a box, she opened and when she saw what it was...let out a squeal! That made my day!!!! I had brought her an Eeyore Lightbulb Ornament...which she had said was her favorite. Our meeting was the third person from the groups for both of us.

WHOO HOO I earned my laptop!!!!!!

Back in January I posted that I was going to sell my ornaments to earn $$ for a laptop as I wanted one not needed it. Well WHOO HOO last night I was able to get one as the first order I got was for two of each of the ones I make (I have posted pix of 10 but I do now make 11), and then I restored a computer for a neighbor...I was abl be to hang onto the $$ which was a big feat for me and then hubby did some overtime. I am SOOOOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!! I bet you couldn't tell. I can now stop the internet search for one and get back to crafting and genealogy research.

WOW I have been at blogger for one whole year now and have I ever had fun. I guess I should have celibrated in a more fun way but alas it will have to be in just telling all of you who come see me here :-) I have been trying to pull myself in three diffent directions lately: 1) being on the computer way too much as I have finally gotten high speed internet for about 3 weeks now and been having a ball visiting all the sites I had wanted to see but to painful on dail-up; 2) trying to do more knitting on the looms and my next attempt is a pair of gloves; and 3) trying to gather up pictured and post of the different ornaments I paint out of dead light-bulbs. I am hopeing to earn enough to buy me a laptop...not too fancy of one but still portable. So I hope to get that posting up SOON! Thanks all for visiting and check back later.

it's Yurtle the turtle

I made this turtle in loom class...I think he came out nice. Now I have to make his friends, the ladybug, frog and monkey. You can see the original at this address: I think she does quite well, don't you?

Every year I make an ornament for my girlfriend and she sends me one (this year she did make one) but the one I make is out of an old lightbulb...I am making one and will post pix of it when done but then I found a cool one online that I had to tweak just a bit. You can find the original ornament at: And here is my version.

SIAMESE Kitty Quilt

Well I finally got around to making the Siamese Kitty quilt. I had been stock piling the colors of materials for a while and I like how it turned out. I made this for a special friend who likes and has Siamese kitties for real. I hope she likes it. Now that it is done I can get back to knitting and I need to as I have a "Midge" scarf to make for a scarf swap I joined.
