Made it this far
Wow, it is really just a dreary day out.
Only the robins and ducks like this kind of weather, but it HAS been nice for about 3 weeks now, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

Got a lot done this morning.
I make afghans.
Mostly Couch-throw size,(twin bed) but also have done much larger.
Did a king-size for my mother, it was a real delicate lacey patterm and she loves it, but I think it would take alot for me to do one that size again.
It took 6 weeks to do and I almost lost my mind in the process. I think it was about 9 pounds of yarns.
Thank Goodness it was not a solid design.
Yes, I most are for sale, but every so often I do one that I like so much I give them away. I gotta stop doing that, can't make a living that way.
One of these days I need to get my pictures posted on here of my work.
I design all my own patterns and they turn out awfully dammed nice, if I do say so.

Two years ago I made up a dozen Lap-size and donated them as Christmas gifts to a local nursing home. It was really wonderful to see the patients faces when they realized they had gotten a present.
Its sad at how many of our old people are simply forgotten or no longer have family members in the local area to do things for them.

Need more coffee
