Hi all, Happy Memorial Day! First I want say THANKYOU to all who serve/have served in the Military. My oldest son Nicholas is in the Army and I am very proud of him.
Are ya’ll having a good long weekend? I am, I took Friday off, so mine has been a bit longer. I spent the day going to yard sales with Crystal and Samantha and boy did I score! I found this lovely vintage cabinet for $10.00! I love it! It has already found a home in my house.

Saturday I spent the day at Tim’s helping the kids have a yard sale, mostly I just sat in the chair and loom knit in between collecting money and got sun burnt ! It was pretty cool all day. I was working on more Hexipuffs, they make a great take along project! These are all the puffs I made over the last week:

I’ve been playing a bit with changing the colors in them, I think I like the pink/ gray one best. What do you think? I changed color each round except on rows 8,9 and 10, I think it turned out real pretty.

Yesterday I spent a lazy day loom knitting and watching movies. I was working on more Mason Jar Covers. I am going to be doing a class on them over in Loom Class http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoomClass/ from June 3-15, you need to be a member to participate. They have been fun to work up. We had steak and potatoes cooked on the grill for supper, yum!

Today has been more loom knitting, movie watching and some pattern writing. It is cool and rainy here today so I don’t mind being inside. Rob and I made breakfast burritos this morning, yummy they are great for grab and go during the week cuz it is back to work tomorrow 😦 ya’ll have a great rest of the day! Angel

This morning I woke up with a sore back but I went to work anyway. Turns out we had extra people so I got to leave after about 3 hours, wow I get some time to play! by this time my back was really hurting so when I got home I took some ibuprofen and sat down in my recliner with a heating pad on my back. Instead of working on something in progress I decided to try out this vintage popcorn square from meme-rose blog.
The afghan made out of this is absolutely beautiful be sure and scroll down to see it. Here’s my square

I still think the square is very pretty but I’m not sure I will ever make it again becuse it took so long!
Almost 3 hours, wow it would take forever to make an afghan! But I still think the afghan is beautiful.
My back is feeling a bit better hopefully it will continue to improve.
