New Crochet Table Topper

I bought this pattern at HASS the one problem i had was my own gauge. the pattern wants 12 repeats and no matter how hard i try i can only do 10. oh well i like the way it looks and i saved 2 repeats in time!


it is the Holy Night Tablecloth and is on sale! Now it might not be on sale when you read this but it is now. super lovely and super great patterns at this site. i did not do all the snowflake at the bottom just did one set of them. it was big enough by that stage so i finished off and blocked it so i can give it early as a gift. that way the person i am giving it to can use it this holiday season i hope.

Ruby Red Galleria Resin Bleuette



About that Christening outfit



Here is a pic of Jevin wearing it. As he is so big I see they put it on him back to front and open and bless his heart it barely hits his knees now. I think he is absolutely the cutest baby.


At least until my newest grandbaby comes along and it looks like we will be blessed with an addition before the year is out, this time by another of my sons.


Jevin is setting in his little baby booster seat.

Finished the Christening outfit



I do not know if they have one, or if they will want to use it, but I finished the thread crochet christening outfit I was working on. They will come over this weekend for Father's Day for family pictures and I will ask them then. Below see pic of it. I used size 10 crochet cotton and a size 4 steel hook.

Guess What I am Working On?



i have a new grandson coming. so i have been making a few items.
this pattern is curves of pursuit. it is a knit pattern available at:

I purchased it yrs ago. But the knit for me was a touch fiddly.
I have converted it to single crochet and LOVE it. The pattern is ONLY
available in knit and only from wooly thoughts.

I have not been knitting lately. My hands are giving me a lot of trouble and for now I am plodding along with my red heart yarn and a size I hook.

Online Games

almost 8 years ago me and mom started playing online games free at ionthunder, then it changed over to bigfishgames, and finally to bigsea games.
big sea closes at the end of august. gone. gone. gone.
i can't believe it.
they use a lot of pop cap brand games. i found another site that uses popcap.
BING GAMES
but if that link dont take ya here it is so you can type it out:
http://www.bing.com/entertainment/games?q=browse:games
Just in case you play the online games at least this will give you a safe place to play. You do not have to sign in. If you do it will take your hotmail or msn sign in and i believe other sign ins too.

Do you drink coffee or cocoa?

i do. and i like it with milk. but i dont like cold milk. and coffee mate has a flavor to it. i tried instant milk. it was fat free and tasted like it.
my favorite instant coffee is nescafe tasters choice. it is by the nestle company and they make a milk powder called NIDO. it is whole milk not fat free in a powder. you add it to the hot water or cold water, dont add the water to it that causes lumps.
two spoons in a hot cup of water, my usual sugar or sweetener, and a spoon of tasters choice and i got latte! it is super in hot cocoa too.
i just thought i would share that in case any of you drink coffee too.
i found my NIDO at my local saveAlot store. they say it is at walmart also.
