while at moms
party i was able to make some hats for the
soliders angels project. i think in total
i got 6 made. also talked to one aunt while there
and she wanted the pattern for newborn hats we
make for hospital. she gave me her email and i
sent her off a note last night. also told her of the
2 hospitals that i know of that want them. talked of
the other many charities i knit for.
i like how the homespun yarn is like self striping. i never realized that.

cowboy hat, ropes and
is for halloween
dark background with
halloween themes moons and owls.
is all about
dogs. the different varieties.
has shiny blue
background with white clouds and yellow moons.
this shows yarn susan dropped off. she wants me to make hats for soldiers and sailors. it's all bulky weight yarn. bag to the right is just misfit ww yarns. bag in the back is bulky weight but has a lot of white, maybe slipper socks or hats, she's gonna check her guidelines to see what i can make that they will accept. i also had 3 hats done for her and soap/shampoo samples for the troops from our hotel stays this summer.

strange flower mom found in her garden.
we figure it was a bulb plant. also in one of the geranium hanging baskets was a bird nest. we started pulling out the weeds and that's when she found the nest along with eggs. she put them back in and will keep an eye on it.
only 100 pounds.
should be close to
1000 pounds by
time of judging and picking.
house took 4 years
to build. i's on the
edge of a cliff.
for the most part the weekend on the island was great. the transportation gettting to and leaving the island leaves something to be desired in the middle of summer-using the winter ferry. what was to be a 20 min ride ended up being close to 2 hours travel with the wait time.
the craft show : with only 5 vendors there was slim pickings. not many brought money to buy things, they were more interested in yard sale items, vs brand new handmade items.
i did sell the pig and monkey child hats, a pair of fun fur flip lops and an infant knit hat, scarf and mittens set.
lot of people but the had too many other activities planned for that day.
blueberry picking was at 9am-start of craft show and south end had a bbq at 11am for anybody who wanted to go. craft show ran from 9-11 and with ferry problems they had to run 2 boats per scheduled run.
new project i plan to start today will be the snsettter fish. we put up mms sunsetter on sunday and she hung the cloth fish from the edges. i figure with the plastic bags i have, bright orange, yellow, blue and green i can make a pretty neat looking fish to hand along with its fin. gonna be fun to do this and probably won't take too long.
can't wait for susan to bring yarn over to me for soldiers hats.
