Winter Barn Scene photo WinterBarnScene.jpg

Wow, almost two weeks since I've found the time to stop by.  Don't ask me where the time is going because I don't know.  Seems like I was just here. 

Tucked in for the night thank goodness, it is horribly cold out with the wind cutting right to the bones.  Looking forward to spending a bit of time with hook and yarn, a nice cup of tea and covered by an in progress afghan.   I need to get out and visit as well.  Looking forward to seeing you!

Have a good night, keep warm.

What to do on Friday ...

They say a Noreaster is coming.  Below us and above us the snow is predicted to be in the over feet range with us to get a fair amount as well.  Whether I will be out working or home on the range (sauce and pot roast simmering) depends upon when the snow begins to fall.  Should it be falling by early morning then the day will be spent at home.   Hmmm, just what will I do?  Oh yes, a bit of cleaning, some laundry and of course ... can you guess ... I know you can and did.  Now, which project will be worked on ...

 the Blackberry Salad Striped Blanket ... loving the bobbles (also what we used to call popcorns).IMG_2958

Redheart's One Ball Baby Blanket and Hat  I'm using Redheart Baby Love yarn, so, so soft.  Another keeper pattern and one that I am sure will be well used.

IMG_2955    or Redheart's Holiday Cables Throw ... a friend of mine wanted to make this and so I started another one to work along with her.  She is doing in the ecru as my first one was and I now am getting my own in red.  I love this pattern.  If you've admired an aran afghan but been afraid to try it ... don't be.  Its such a fun crochet and gorgeous results. 

And I do have a finish - Bev's 5 Day Blankie
IMG_2950completed and ready to wash and waiting for its new home.

I think I have myself looking forward to a snowed in day.  Safe travels to those within the blizzazd regions.  Blessings to all.

Good Friday Morning and A Word(s) About Spam

good morning1
Good morning!  Breakfast and morning prayer finished, sipping coffee and reviewing the day's plans.  A breezy sunshine day with much ado on the homefront then off to run some errands later on.

I have put my comments on moderator status right now.  All of a sudden I am being bombarded with anonymous comments / spam.  I am annoyed to the point that I am not sure that I want to continue with blogging.  I just don't understand how come there's always someone somewhere who has to ruin nice things.  I have seen on a few other blogs that anonymous comments are not allowed but I haven't been able to find where I can set that up so for the time being I'm moderating all comments.   If they continue I may have to go to the word verification as the spam amount is almost ridiculous there are so many.  I am curious if any of you are also being bothered by this.

Hope your day is a good one, have a lovely weekend.
