New years resolution? To late? I THINK NOT!

The Lord has put 1 word on my heart, CHARITY, what can I do for others....? Its hard to do a lot of things with the kids and school and no child care, so I searched, and searched, and today it hit me!

Project Linus & Snuggle Project

I plan to donate throughout the year, my goal is......

3 blankets by the end of the year for Project Linus
50 snuggles by the end of the year

This is what I have in mind, and I am going to set myself to do it! Hopefully I am able to do more! If you would like to donate granny squares for Project Linus or yarn, let me know! I am happy to include whatever if given!

Yarn or snuggles is also ok to send me to donate!!!!!!

Doily Adventures!

Anyone who has done doilies knows these are pretty small... about 2-3 inches! But I was just 1. practicing, 2. experimenting with design and 3. experimenting with color... See I bought 1 ball of size 10 cotton, and a size 7 boye steel needle. I wanted to make a bookmark for a very special friend but I wanted to practice first, the first picture, I made that design up (just goofing around) and the second, I got from a lady who makes videos on the internet. Now how did I come up with the colors considering I only had 1 ball of yarn?!?!? Well food coloring and water make a big difference .. hehe.. (always thinking creative) ! My book mark was suppose to be blue, but! there was a little to much pink in the mix and the bottom turned purple... so its now multicolored, and the cross is a faint purple... cant wait to try something new... I am thinking of making a bookmark out of the start stitch, Who knows!!!! I want to try pineapples but I havent found a design I like.. any suggestions?
