Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

She called me "MawMaw"!

Grandma's heart melted when she reached for me while her daddy was holding her, but my heart really melted when she called me "Mawmaw"! Love my sweet Della!

They're calling for 2-4 inches of snow tomorrow! Yuck! Hope they're wrong! I stopped by Wal-Mart this morning to get some milk ( heh,heh!) and a few other things and this is what greeted me at the door....

Learn how to spell! One thing I can't stand is incorrect spelling and/or grammar! (I'm the one who wrote "sell" on the sign! Shh! Don't tell anyone! ) :-)
I finally found something to start crocheting yesterday. It's a baby blanket and I'm using my yarn hoard.

 It's called Shining Star and it's in this book.
I have found and joined several crochet groups on Facebook and am excited to try another grapghan. There is a company that sells graphs located near my home..... Cuddleup-creations. Another FB group is Yarn Love Affair. This lady is remarkable. Check both of them out!
Stay warm and have a great week!

Little Della - she's so adorable. I like the new blanket you've started - it's pretty and unique. :)

Your Della is a cutie for sure and sounds like she has her mawmaw wrapped around her finger..love it. Your last blanket is just awesome and I am sure the next will be great also..I have seen those graphgans..they are lovely. I tell myself I need to make a blanket, but my fingers tend to grab the thread. But you are inspiring me to grab some yarn..

How sweet :-) Della's so cute.
Sloppy selling drives me crazy, too. There was a sign near our house in Florida: "50 Acers for Sale" Really? What is an acer? I wanted to fix it every time we drove by it.
Your blanket looks great so far. I like the one on the book cover too.
Ever since your last finish, I've been looking at graphgans. I'd like to make one, just have to find the right pattern. I'm not on Facebook, but I've looked at a few other sites.
Take care :-)

The little one is adorable :). Hope you don't have to go anywhere before the roads get cleared.

Della is adorable and I love her in that little dress, she looks so sweet.

I love the new blanket as well, I can't wait to see how it grows and and changes.
