All I Want For Christmas......Is Ewe

When I saw a large number 20 Serta Sheep on the Crazy Sheep Lady blog ( I knew I really wanted one. I told my daughter about it and somehow she found one! I opened the B.I.G package at her house, and Lucky Dog started growling at it!! Number 20 is about 30 inches from the top of her head to the tip of her tail. She is 50 inches around the middle!! She has been sleeping in a large laundry basket for lack of a better place to keep her. You're likely to see her quite a bit around here...

Christmas with Family

My son and I went over to my daughter's house last night after a day of fun in Winston Salem. (No, shopping, just enjoying being out after a very hard semester). We ate supper at my daughter's home and enjoyed seeing the Christmas decorations that have been in the family for years! (I don't decorate anymore, and my son doesn't either). We had a good time playing with the "granddog", Lucky. I don't know who is the luckiest, Lucky, or my daughter!! Lucky is a really fun dog, and enjoys for us to come to her house, and she enjoys coming to ours. More later on what my daughter gave me for Christmas... Happy Christmas to all, and God Bless!!

What the?.....

This the season for surprises... Last Thursday there was an unexpected package squished in my mail box. I did not order any lighted knitting needles, hot pink, size 9, but there they were. It was too late in the day to contact the shipper, but did so first thing the next morning. To their credit,, was courteous and amused by the mixup. I had ordered a skein of hard-to-find red yarn two days prior, and somehow someone elses needles got sent to me. The nice lady said "keep em" and I said "uh, I don't want em". She said "I wouldn't have any use for em either, donate em to charity". Well, Earl Grey loves em. He loves flashlights, etc. Maybe I'll take to knitting in the dark, anything's possible. Thanks My conversation with you made my day. Ho Ho Ho!!

Yarn Needed

My daughter is working on a crocheted project and has run out of yarn. It is a discontinued yarn named Red Heart "Olive" and it is worsted weight, probably Super Saver. I have checked their website and they don't have it listed there. Check your stash for me please, and if you have any of this older yarn please let me know. It is always a good idea to make sure you have enough yarn to finish your project (uh, before you start)!! Thanks, and have a great weekend.

What I'm Reading

After reading, or should I say putting aside a real "stink burger" of a book, I decided to read the first of the Holiday novels I have in the stack. I bought the above book at the Goodwill last summer! When you only pay $1.50 for a hardback book, you can afford to "re-donate" a few, eh? When I started reading it I have to admit that I didn't expect much, but I am pleasantly surprised!! It is actually a sort-of history lesson and I find I can't put it down!! I really recommend this book for Holiday light reading. I've been under-the-weather lately, and have only worked on a few UFO's, mostly knitting. Have a blessed weekend...

****Before we all get too caught up on this Holiday shopping & chaos...just remember whose Birthday we are celebrating. It's not about us, it's all about Jesus!!****
