A Granny Square....

I am so pleased with myself!! After 30 years of crocheting I have finally made a Granny Square. Here is a pic of my first ever square.
My dear Aunt, who was my crochet buddy tried many, many times to teach me how to make a granny square and I just couldn't do it. It was a great source of frustration to me too.
Well, a couple of weeks ago, I took out my book, and with my little guy running around and the TV on, I made a granny square!! I was, and still am shocked. I have made about 12 of them now in purple. And they are being donated to make a blanket for Alzheimers.
I am also making a giant granny square and will donate that too.

April 20---Here is the pic of the Giant Granny square I made and donated. It was fun to make it. The top picture is the giant granny. The bottom square is my first ever granny square.

Seven Things Week 33

I know this weeks seven things seems really lame, but let me explain.
I have been married almost 13 yrs. I had been a smoker up until about a yr and a half ago. I have never smoked in this house but I did smoke in my house when I was not married.
All of these ashtrays have been sitting in my cupboard wasting space.
My husband is in the process of redoing the kitchen after a very long hiatus. My kitchen was only about half way done when I unexpectedly (and very welcomed) got pregnant with our boy.
So, in this whole process, I had to clean the cupboard so hubby can remove them and these are what I found.
I am glad to be rid of them and I know sadly they will find a new home. I hate to just throw them away knowing someone could use them. So I will donate them to the box that the vets will pick up.
*Seven ashtrays!!!

Lunar Eclipse!!

I was able to get some pics of the eclipse tonight. They aren't great but they are better than nothing. The first one was in the beginning. The second pic was a few minutes later. I like it because you can see the whole moon.

Seven Things Week 30

Lots of shoes this week! Some of this stuff is from my husbands trunk that we cleaned out. Found some interesting stuff in there!
* Clothes steamer
* Men's black shoes
* Brown slippers
* Woman's black shoes
* Baby swim shoes
* White plant hangar
* 10 baby shower invitations
The men's black shoes, the clothes steamer and the plant hangar were all in the trunk. Odd assortment. The other stuff was in the office area just waiting to find a new home. The woman's black shoes were mine, still in great shape but it appears that my feet have grown since having my son!! Or while I was pg with him and I'm just facing up to the fact now!!
