Spring in NC

Well its spring in NC and of course most of my azaleas are in bloom and the lilac bush so what is happening tonight a freeze the temps are dropping into the 20's so this means my white azalea's will turn brown and there is nothing I can do. I am posting a picture of the flower arrangement my mother did out of some the the flowers from the yard. I spent most of the day in Greensboro with my mother and aunt looking for curtain's and we found some at Anna's Linens. I will hang the curtains tomorrow. I did a couple of rows on my shells afghan this morning before I went to Greensboro. I really would like to start the ripple but I don't have enough skeins of one color yarn to get started and finish the afghan so I don't want to start. Well pay day is coming and maybe I can buy the yarn for the ripple and the rest of the yarn for the shells afghan. Happy crocheting and knitting.

Well to my surprise I won and auction at Ebay!!!! I brought some very pretty yarn and I have no idea what to do with this yarn. It is hand spun kettle dyed 100% wool in a beautiful faded red brick. Rio De La Plata is the name on the tag I have never heard of this yarn the tag on the yarn states that the yarn sells for $13.50 per skein. I brought 4 skeins for $25.00 I did not think I would win it came as a surprise! . Today the living room dinning room area finally got the new flooring it looks great the guy comes back tomorrow to do the little hall way and kitchen it is amazing what a few changes can do to a house. The next thing is the roof. Pray for me I need a miracle I really need a roof. I want a metal roof. I think I will add a few rows to my Shells afghan. I have a long weekend coming I took Thursday off and Friday the office is closed because its Good Friday. Happy crocheting and knitting!!!

Spring, I did not spend the weekend working on the blushing grannies afghan. I spent the weekend working in the yard. So this means I used muscles that I have not used in a long, long time! So today I feel like I have been hit by something large. I still went to walk today, I am trying to lose weight. I got in my 8 glasses of water that was horrible. I hate water. I started working a new afghan going pretty good but I did not work on it that much this weekend either. I am watching deal or no deal and this man has just turned down $173,000 ! I don't know whats wrong with these people. I think I would have to work over 10 years to earn that much money on my job. I don't think he needs the money that bad. Happy crocheting and knitting.
