As this next month will be a big photo month for me--
I am joining in the party--
Scavenger Hunt Sundays--
we are given 5 topics for photos for the week--
and I had alot of fun doing these--
they are:

Back to School--
And I went for a 'past' look--
as I had nearly everything already!!

What about a family of ducks down by the lake!!!

One of the tenants here, whom I borrowed the red apple from for the school picture!!

I love to collect old, gold, print on the cover books!!!


Look at all the details in a spider web!!!

So now to join the rest of them
and to see what next week's 5 subjects will be???
Also next Saturday afternoon I will be taking my first of 3--
photo classes here in town!!!

a new 'addition' !!!!
to making these--
the knitted 'boob's for bra inserts!!
Had 4 all knitted and went to the yarn shop yesterday to see about stuffing them--
have gotten the one that was on the needles finished and have started a 6th one!!!

And has anyone seen the month of August????
I do believe that somehow I have missed the whole month--
the only thing that I can see that I accomplished has been the knitting!
( oh and losing my teeth!!!)
On the way home from the yarn shop--
I did stop at our Farmers Mkt--
that is set up on Friday afternoons in our local park--
It is hard to see so much lovely food,
but not be able to buy it as I can't eatchew it right now--
but have boughten blueberries each week and this week I got a nice head of cauliflower--
that should taste yummy!!

Found this small butterfly/moth this morning when I was out to take some photos of the morning glories--
Hope you are having a great Saturday--

Look who came to visit us at the yarn shop--
Yep--that is Odie--remember him???
he was one of the kittens I helped raise 2 years ago at the yarn shop--
and then he became the Yarn shop cat until about a year ago--
when him and his mom moved to NC--
he has been back here in NY for about 2 months visiting--
and his mom brought him to the yarn shop for Nancy and I to see!!
Hey--Nancy what are you doing on the floor???
Can I help you????
Now we are talking!!!
Look what Di brought me!!!

knitting 'boobs'!!
with a great bunch of gals!!
they are for this charity group--
these look almost like a 'boob'--
and are only knitted/crocheted in the one kind of yarn--
but in all colors and you make different cup sizes--
my first one is a DD--
as that size is not made as much as the smaller sizes, I heard--
Here is my first one--
now this one has not had the stuffing put in it yet--
so it looks out of shape-
will go back on Friday and have Sue show me how to stuff it and finish it--
in the mean time--I have started another one--
they are a bit tricky to start--but so easy to knit after that and the second one,
I started went much easier!!!
Here is the if anyone else is interested in making some--
or to check out the website--
Happy knitting!!!
hugs, di and miss gracie
