I am getting the basket blocks embroidered--
Not sure I am doing one a week--
but it is close--another one has been started--
but not it is time to work on this weeks Bee blocks--
see we have about 7 blocks more to make after these 2--so will be doing them all through the month of August it looks like!!

And DD took me to Hobby Lobby yesterday afternoon for more of the cotton yarn I use on the baby sweaters--I have the last 2 skeins on the needles now--
and I learned it was on sale through Saturday--savings of about 60 cents a skein--
so was a good time to do a trip--
and lookie what came home with me--
And there is some new ones--the marbled ones are new--so can't wait to work with them--
got 13 more skeins at least 7 more sweaters on this chair!!
While there, the DD and I was looking at more adult color books and colored pencils-
not sure why--have plenty of each--
but look what she bought me--
A whole color book on Butterflies--and I wanted to try out this new brand of pencils--
and I really liked them--they colored up nicely!!

and then the 'kids' took me to Friendly's for dinner--
and yes we did top of the meal with a Happy Endings, ice cream sundae!!!
this is the same Friendly's that both my daughter and I worked at years ago and is pretty much the only one left for miles and miles on this coast!!

Well--I need to get my Bee blocks traced and colored--
so keep cool if you are where it is HOT--( as it is here today--ouch!!)
love and laughter, di


  1. Love your basket block. And the sweater yarn looks yummy. How wonderful that it was on sale. Never turn down a sale. Do you ever hear anything about Miss Gracie?

  2. Oh! Wow! I haven't crochet in a while, but all those yarns look gorgeous. It makes me want to start again. We don't have any kind of fabric stores or hobby stores around here, but I heard they had opened a Hobby Lobby close by.(About an hours' drive.) So maybe I can get there sometime. Love the basket blocks!
