I am so behind going to ramble..

SO much has been going on I never seem to find the time to do what I need to like post to all the wonderful people who read my blog .... So thank you to the three of you who read what I write.

I have been crocheting a few different things and as soon as they get released I will have to post pictures so you will have to be patient a bit longer..

I have also been running circles with looking for a new house and trying to keep my kids on task with homeschooling this year.. I have to give credit to my older two they have really took charge and devoted their time in the right places on school this year which is great it leaves me time to get my youngest doing what she should be doing...

I finally got my mom's birthday gift all together so she should be happy.. I hope so at least.. ok onto my next post that will be devoted to the Ville and to pumpkin the wonderful person who is pampering me.

Lets all get together and declare and International Crochet Day! The ball's rolling already with folks who are entering a hook giveaway contest on my blog by promising to promote the date, (Sept. 12) however they can. Several have put posts up in their blogs, passing the word, and we even have a post by Andy of "Crochet Depot" forum fame! If enogh folks spread the word, and that's not really difficult with all this internet stuff.. We'll end up with a genuine International Crochet Day that will spread goodwill around the world! Famine and wars will cease and EVERYONE will share goodness and kindness everywhere! Ok, that might be just a wee bit of an exaggeration but what harm could it do? A day for crochet!!

Happy Mother's Day

Today we should be happy we are mother's .
Be happy someone yelled at you woke you up at least you know you are alive and you are lucky to have someone that looks up to you for everything from a kiss on boo boo . To the talk about stranger danger .Or just to give a hug. Everyday say I love you to your child you never know it might be the last thing you get to say to them.

The sun is shining the birds are singing and I am alive . I have kids that love me I have food in my stomach. A roof over my head. clothes on my back. I am lucky.
I have a mother that has stood beside me in everything I do . She picked my up when I fell she dusted me off and set me on my way . I have a wonderful mother she never has judge me for the bad choices and never has told me I told you so though I have left her many chances to do so. I have a wonderful mother .She forgives me for being the worst child anyone could ask for she never stopped loving me though I would have.

I have a wonderful mom she picked up the broken pieces of my heart when the door of life slammed in my face. she help me put my heart back together when my husband left me with a newborn baby and never reminded me she told me I should not married him he was all wrong.

My mother are like diamonds scattered on a beach if you do not take time to let the sand run though your finger you will never find the diamond hide in side to treat your mother like the time take time to see the beauty hide inside

I love my mom and though I never said thank for all the things she did and still does.My mom put her life on hold to come and help me while I have been sick , My mom reminds me to take care of myself.she reminds me even if I don't feel like eating food is my friend. I love my mom she gave me life today and she raised me to my the person I am today . If I am half the mother my mother has been to me then my kids are very lucky .

she sent me great things for my fur monster,. She sent a dog bowl mat shapes like a dog bone way to cute. she sent dog bones (and eveny triple check they were not on a recall list) she sent a kong shaped like a fire hydrant. and a raw hide chew. She even thought to send me thank you notes for all the thank you's I need to send out.

Nothing much going on started work on blankets for Febuary's blitz. and finding yarn to assemble my squares for my charity work.

Sunday, January 28, 2007

I day of Charity a week can change the world

Have you ever thought You have so much and what could happen if you just took one day and if you do not have a day and hour a week to just donate something to someone you don't know you may never see or know what it could do for them?

I am in the Charity Blitz at Crochetville. Every month we take one day we donate everything to Various of charities January we made items for a hospital for premiees and sick kids. together with all the other wonderful people we donated of 314 items.

Febuary we will be making bereavment blankets for another hospital. So if you have a little time stop by help out it will truely change you for the rest of your life

I am also taking squares that many people have donated to me and I am making my own all the completed blankets will be given to the homeless and the abuse shelter in my local area. I have no wasted yarn if I can not makes a square a granny daughter I am making sunggles......What is a snuggle you as it is a pad for a dog or cat to lay on so they do not have to lay on cold cement or cage..

Thank you for reading my long ramblings and if you can't help one of these charities there is many on Crochetville you can or help in your area walk up to a stranger give them enough money for a coffee.

The Beginning

Here is a comfortghan I assembled from squares donated by members of crochetville though the year I will be posting many of them along with the other things I do.

We all search for something in life but if you don't know where to look how do we know when we found it?

I think life is like sand on a beach. If you never stop and let the sand run through your fingers you will never find the treasure buried with in.

This site will be where I show off my crocheting life and what I do when I am not crocheting .....I am doing nothing when not crocheting.
