Ugly Cat Blankets

These are two cat blankets I made for my daughters two cats. They seem to like them she says.

They are made with mostly Red heart leftover yarn. Some people call this a scrap blanket.

The idea (my idea anyway!!) is to make the animal blankets with the leftover yarn and have them be as ugly as possible. These two aren't too bad.

Memorial Blanket

This is a small memorial blanket I made for a woman who recently had a miscarriage.

The blanket is white and it is made with Bernat Babys Breath. It is very similar to the Homespun I use and I like it.

April blankets

This is a baby blanket I made for a friend to give to her friend.

It's made with my new favorite yarn, Bernat Baby Coordinates. I like this yarn because it has a silvery, sparkly strand running through it and it makes a pretty blanket.

I didn't measure it but it's a typical baby sized afghan.


It snowed here Friday night!! I couldn't believe it. But it is all melted today. We got about 1-2 inches here.

We got the little guy signed up for soccer this spring. Then he starts baseball in early summer.

He will have swim lessons all summer too.

Plus, we attended the auction and won some fun tickets for fun activities. We will be going to the Childrens Museum here and two different water parks. The little guy loves the water parks.

And, there are the dollar movies on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the summer.

There are also a couple of day camps through the YMCA that he is interested in.

My goal is to keep moderately busy, while not running from activity to activity, which I believe I have achieved. I don't want to sit around inside all summer. I need to stay motivated to do some fun stuff this summer.

The little guy did well in his speech contest. And the school, except for Kindergarten, all had SAT tests. I talked to the kids at school throughout the week and they all sounded positive about the testing. My little guy thought it was easy, as did a lot of the other kids. He especially liked the math portion.

I signed up for college, and sent away for my transcripts, which I received so I am assuming the school received their "official" copy. Now I need to call and get an advisor meeting set up so I can get my classes sorted out. I will be attending part time and starting in Fall. I am excited!!

Been busy crocheting and reading too. I'll post some pics

We finish up this years Bible study in a couple weeks. It's been a great study and I will make a separate post about that!!

Oh! We won a bagels for a year from Panera at the auction. We receive 13 bagels and 2 cream cheese tubs per month! We were all excited about that win. And we won it at a great price!!

That's about it for now. Thanks for reading.
