Hi everybody,
Just checking in again. I FINALLY picked up some knitting needles recently!! Hadn't touched anything since February and that was only to get a pinwheel blanket started. (Thanks again Sandy!!!)

I've been actually been keeping more busy reading lately. I'm addicted to the Janet Evanovich - Stephanie Plum series and since I can only handle one addiction at a time - reading seems to be it. Haha.

Also, I did start a baby blanket for a friend and have been working on that some. I'm making it with bulky yarn so it goes fairly quickly. The last one I made for a neighbor and they LOVED it. The baby always took her naps on it on the floor with another blanket over it. It's really cushy. So I decided to make another one. Will start another one soon after I finish this just to have one on standby. Although, I only have the same yarn in blue, so I hope any future baby is a boy!

Anyway - between that and small vacations/weekends away - I've been really busy and not able to jump in here. I have two vacations planned this summer - Myrtle Beach SC for 4 days in July and then Italy for 11 days in August. Perhaps after then I can get on a blanket or two here and feel like I'm part of the group again........

I'll keep lurking until then, and chime in when I can!

Brenda

Winter Wonderland
HollyP, I will have "winter wonderland" finished up by this weekend. I had to order some yarn for it and I just received the last of it today, that is what took me so long with getting it done. I will post pics as soon as I finish and it will be on it way to you soon.

Noone has posted in a while on here. I hope everyone is okay and having a good summer.

No worries Lisa. Just get it to me when you can!

It has been really quiet here lately. Hope all is well with everyone!

I think I will be donating our first batch of blankets soon! Dawn and Drea have 4 or 5 that they are finishing up that they are going to send together. I'm going to wait on donating until I get them. I can't wait!!!!! (No pressure- really!)

I finally figured out what I want to do with Diggers, it had me stumped! I'll be working on it tomorrow while having a getting caught up on TV shows marathon with Sharon. I'll have pictures very soon!

I had the same thing happen with one I did. I think it was a rainbow blanket. But I looked and looked and couldn't find yarn to match it. I fiinaly found some I Love This Yarn, but I don't have a Hobby Lobby near me, so I order it online and that took a while for it to get to me.

I thought it would get quiet over the summer. We are enjoying the summer and your house, yard and pool.

I think all of them but 1 is done now.

I love to knit and watch TV... it's usually movies for me... been on a LOTR kick recently. I'm looking forward to seeing what you add to it.

Can you email me?
Hi Everyone,

I'm scheduled to do a couple of borders and have been keeping up with the progress on the blankets via the blog site, because I don't visit KH as often as I'd like.

Is that the best way? If not, would you email me when they are ready for me? I don't want to miss out!!

Blessings,
Burma
