teen christmas party

our pepper

Our pepper plant has a pepper on it . We don't know what kind it is, but it
sure is cute.
I have been spinning and knitting and sewing a lot.
I am done with Christmas except for a little bit of wrapping, and some stuff
that has to go to the post office.

Happy Thanksgiving

The turkey is cooking and everything else is ready so I am watching football
and knitting.
I am working on a double knit hat. It will be very warm. The colors should
be a bit more of a contrast though, maybe the next one will be better. This
may be another Christmas present when it is done.
Hubby's Sister and family will be over soon. We always have a wonderful time
eating, talking and playing cards.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

spinning

I got some green roving from Aunt Candy to spin. It is really beautiful. I
have about 400 yards done already, and there is lots more. It will keep me
busy for a while.

Hats

Another Christmas gift finished. This one is probably for my sis.
I have been making a lot of hats this fall. Here is the hat pattern. It was
really quick and easy.

Bubba's birthday party

Here are some of the pictures from Bubba’s party.

We had 9 little girls for pizza and a sleepover. It was a wild and crazy night. I don’t think anybody got much sleep, but everyone had a lot of fun.

I love having the girls’ friends over, it is wonderful to see such lovely little ladies growing up together.

Hubby's Birthday

Hubby’s birthday is today.

He is one of the greatest men I know. He is a great husband and father, and friend. I love being his friend and wife.

We had his birthday party last night. We had pizza, cake and ice-cream.

We had the fantasy football draft party on Saturday night. It was a lot of fun. We had lots of guys over and way too much food as usual. The girls had a couple of friends over and watched movies.    

On Sunday we went to Pepin and joined mom and dad for Laura Ingalls Wilder days. We got to spend the day hanging out with everyone and helped tear down.

Today is hangout day with Hubby.

Have a blessed day.

First day of school

We were going to do a really light day of school today. We started the morning with some basic Home Ec. (cleaning the kitchen).

But We got out the books I already have and they started most of them. I will get the rest of them ordered this week.

Hubby decided it would be a good idea for them to copy down the prayer from Reverend Dushe to the first meeting of the Continental Congress, so they are now working on that. americanchristianhistoryl

We had a very busy weekend. A couple parties with church friends, a birthday breakfast with one of my BFF’s (our birthdays are only 4 days apart), and some apple picking.  We a have 4 –H meeting tonight and Teen group BBQ at church tomorrow night.

Hubby is having the fantasy football draft party on Saturday. I get to clean and organize this week and get ready for the party. I like it when hubby has his friends over, he always helps me clean before and after the parties.

I have been working on the birthday socks for one of the girls’ friends, and some spinning. I dyed some of the wool I picked up for Mom and Candy at the wool festival this spring (they let me keep a little bit). I have blue, pink and peach. I think it is Shetland, but can’t remember, it is very nice to work with.

Happy September

Yesterday was my Birthday. We had a fabulous day. We went shopping and got some jewelry. Stopped at Sonic for lunch (love their shakes). Came home and did gifts, and went to Olive Garden for dinner.

I got wonderful gifts. The city finished repaving our road (I wish they would have done our driveway also), a new furnace(thanks to Dakota county electric), new flashlights from Dad, a kitchen timer and Hubby’s laptop, and a bunch of fun little stuff from the girls. We watched the Vikings preseason game before bed.

I did get a little bit of spinning and knitting done. I am starting a new pair of socks for a gift for someone. I have another camping hat that is almost done.

It has been a really cool August, We didn’t have any days above 90, the temp last night was 45 degrees. I am hoping that September is a bit warmer. I am not ready for cold weather yet.

This summer has been very busy. I got to babysit a friends puppy for a week. He is very cute and well behaved for a baby. We went camping up north over the 4th of July, spent 10 days at Mom and Dad's working on their house, camping at Zombrota with the church group. This week is Dakota county fair.
The girls each put in two projects this year and both got blue ribbons. They were very excited and we stopped at DQ on the way home to celebrate.
We have the Church annual jubilee this week. We will be over there early to help set up.

I have gotten lots of spinning and knitting done. I made myself a hat on the camping trip up north. the nights were cold and I got tired of having a cold head. I think I am going to have to put some hats in with the camping supplies.

I finished 2 pairs of socks, a scarf that matches my hat, and a sweater for me. I kinda winged it on the sweater. I like the way it turned out, I just need to get some buttons for it.
I am working on another pair of socks now. I am doing braided cables on the front.

I can't figure out why the photos are sideways. I will try to fix it later.

My Bitty

Bitty is 13 today. She is a wonderful little lady. She is respectful, kind and very loving.

We had her birthday party on Saturday night. She had a bunch of friends over for a  barbeque, bonfire and sleep over in the tent outside.

Today we will be playing on the Wii and watching movies.

The story of the yarn.
The yarn started out on a sheep as wool. The wool was removed from the sheep at Shalom Hills Farm, where Dad works. The wool was at Mom and Dad’s until I brought it home with me.


The wool was washed and then dyed into thee pretty colors.

The wool was combed and stretched into roving strips (with a little help from Bitty).


The wool was spun on my fabulous spinning wheel. (thanks Mom)


The pretty single was plied with two other single (from some brown roving and grey from a cone) and is now a fabulous three ply.

The yarn now wants to be socks. It is so pretty and soft.


I may want to keep them, but they will probably be for someone who has a birthday coming up soon. (shhhh It’s a secret. )

Lots of finished items, but the pictures will have to be next time.

Mother's Day

 

The girls and hubby made French toast for breakfast before church. We had lunch at home and then went to the mall. I got a manicure, the girls’ idea.  We went to the new “ Star Trek” movie and ate way too much popcorn. It was a really good movie. Then for dinner we went to Olive Garden, one of my favorite places. We split a raspberry cheesecake for dessert. Then we came home and  I played on the computer for a bit before going to bed. It was a great day.

Mom and my Aunt are with Grandma visiting cousins in S.D.  Her phone does not have service there so I only got to talk to her a little bit when she called on Grandma’s phone after dinner.

I finished the pillow cases, one knitted and one sewed. The knitted one is black on one side and purple on the other side. It is really soft and Bitty has claimed it as hers. I am still spinning the white wool.
