Gone Crazy

My original goal was 10 things for Amy. Now, due to unbelieveable response from my Weight Watcher group, my Curves group, other friends and family, I have reset my goal to send 50 things to Amy by the deadline. I have already sent 7 things, soooo, that leaves 43 I need to get together. So far, I have thirty done (of the 43 left) and that means I need to get my needles cracking. I am trying for a scarf every two days, so I think I can beat the deadline with room to spare. Look for the goodies Amy!

More hats for Amy

I can't believe this...along with the donated yarn, I got some more hats from an anonymous donor at my Curves in Multnomah Village. Thank you so much! They will be on there way soon to Amy for WarmUp Winc!

Free Yarn: There's a catch! You have to make something for charity!

Would you love to knit or crochet for a charity but can't really afford the yarn? Wanted: someone to help me tackle all this donated yarn. If you can make a scarf for Amy's project, I will send you FREE YARN. Please leave a comment and I will get back to you ASAP to arrange to get the yarn to you. I would like to get these done for Amy right away to beat the deadline. I'll choose the color and surprise you!

My Very First Swap!

There was a Sisters' Shoebox Swap link ( on Devon's site that for a lark I joined. I was matched up with Stephanie from South Carolina. The swap was entitled "Refreshment" and it was so fun to buy stuff for Stephanie and Friday, I got a pkg from her.

There was 2 lovely hand crocheted doilies, notecards, yummy smell good sachet and papers, jelly beans, picture frame, a notepad, and a pen from SC and a the coolest thing of all: handmade soap from SC (flavor is apricot and eucalyptus) with a slice of loofah in it! It is so unusual! I'm excited to try it. This is my very first swap and I've so enjoyed getting to know Stephanie. What a sweetie! Thank you, dear heart!
