I know that some of you will remember my baby bootie knitting. I made quite a few as you can see. I figured I would donate them, since my one DIL had a miscarriage. Well, got a call last night from our oldest son, the one that has the 15 year old. His wife is pregnant! Wow. They seem to be happy about it. So my DH said to me "well I guess you made those booties for a good reason."

I have also put alot of my crafts into a consignment shop. I don't know how that will work out, I like the craft shows, but I don't do heat well., so I'm giving it a shot.

I have also been asked by our small quilt shop here in town if I would make purse samples if they supplied the fabric and patterns. I would enjoy that, they just have to come up with a way to compensate me for my time. I told them I would do it for shop credit. I should hear something this week.

Have a great week everyone. Conne204

I forgot - Purse Class

I forgot to mention that I did teach the Purse Class. I had 4 students and I have to say, it was an interesting experience. It was scheduled for two sessions, however, it ended up being three and they all did get their purses done.

For all of my reading freinds. I also still love real books. The kids know that I love to read and they never can figure out what to get me. With that said I really do like the Kindle. However, I have been downloading free books and will still be getting all the new releases from the library.

Have a great rest of your Sunday and have a wonderful week.

New Project!

Finally I was able to comment on everyone's blogs. Have no idea how I fixed it. I'm such a senior citizen when it comes to technology. It's been really crazy around here lately and hopefully things will settle down for a while at least. I have been knitting baby booties and my DH keeps asking me why. Just to keep my fingers busy. I had originally started them for a new grandbaby, which unfortunately she lost in the first few weeks. So I have kept knitting at night watching TV. I will probably donate them.

Then for a combined Mothers Day and Birthday present all the kids got me a Kindle. I was so excited. So I made a cover for it. Turned out so well that I think I may make some more for craft shows. I also really like the Kindle. I read alot and there are alot of free books and for now that's great. However, I will still get the new releases from the library.

It's very hot and humid here and we are off to Indiana (hour drive) for our 3 year old granddaughters dance recital. They are so cute at this age. Have a great weekend.
