My first ever 5K is Saturday morning. Mere hours away. I got my bib and t-shirt today; I think I need to go down a size for the shirt.
I did this afghan for Sissie44’s seniors. The lapghan is made using 2 strands held together throughout and a nice big fat P hook. The bigger the hook, the faster the lapghan gets made 😀
I’m also getting closer to getting the pink ribbon afghan done! I just finished joining the two halves and I need to decide how many rows of white to add at either end, then border it. Yay! Here’s an updated picture for your viewing pleasure 😀
I was lucky enough to test the Heart of a Childsquare designed by Smoothfox at Crochetville. I LOVED this pattern! It’s so quick and easy and finishes up beautifully! I thank her so much for letting me test this pattern. I was able to make three of these while working my 6 hours last night. The first one took a little longer, simply because it was a new pattern and as a tester I needed to watch for mistakes, confusions and make notes regarding that.
The first one is going to go to Sissie44at Crochetville. She has committed to making 100 lapghans for Christmas for seniors at the assisted living/nursing home her friend works at. Because she said yes before she knew how many were actually needed, Sissie turned to Crochetville for help. The larger purple one (the top one) will be going to SmoothFox per her request to help make afghans for charity. The smaller purple one, I’m not sure yet. We’ll see on that. Enjoy! And if you knit, crochet, sew, tie together fleece or have some gently used lap sized blankets around you’re looking to get rid of, all help is still appreciated and needed!
I’ve done Weight Watchers several times over the years. And I like hanging out at the message boards. They’re just like every day life, you get happy, sad, snarky and some one just has to shake their head at and wonder.
One of the boards I frequently lurk on has a bunch of women who are dedicated to doing what they can to help fight breast cancer. Several of these women get together for Boston’s Susan G Koman Race for the Cure. Last year (I’m pretty sure last year was the first year) they came up with a wonderful idea to do an online auction.
People provide so many wonderful items. This year they have the cookbook back that was created by Team GDT. There are home made candles, homemade jams, paintings and several other amazing items by so many talented and creative people. The Team GDT Auction is a great place to do a little gift shopping. Maybe treat yourself to something special. And while you’re doing that, you’ll be helping to fight against Breast Cancer.
I’m also currently working on an item to auction off. I searched for a picture of a pink ribbon that I liked and I’m working on turning it into an afghan. As soon as I get further along on it, I plan on providing this information to those running the auction so that they can add this. But for your viewing pleasure, here’s the picture I choose:

So check out Team GDT and check it often. New items being offered for auction are posted all the time. And help to save the Ta-ta’s!
