Here are a couple of pictures of my bestfriend and me, in Florida last spring. It was the first trip we'd ever taken together away from our kids. Hubby did a very good job for the whole week. I'd never been away for so long, but it flew by. I told her yesterday that we need to do it again!! Her mom and stepdad took care of us like princesses. We payed for our tickets there, and that was it. They cooked for us, or took us out every night. It was just like when we were kids. We've been bestfriends for (ok she'll kick my arse if I'm wrong) I think....21 years? I'm close, I know it, I just can't do any math right now. hahahaha. She read my blog, and said I'm an old lady, and I crack her up. She's an old lady, too, but I think old age must have made her forget that fact!
Well, well, well, Blogger is being nice! It let me put another picture in this post!! I tried my hand at making some stitch markers. They are really small, for sock needles. I gave them to Carrie for her birthday. Then, I sat down and made some more. I think I'll send one out with each skein of sock yarn I sell on my etsy shop. I might even sell some separately. I've been using one on the jaywalker sock I'm knitting; instead of the little coil-less safety pin that I usually use. It works just as well, and looks a lot better.
Tomorrow, or whenever I post next, I'll show some pictures of how I fixed my felted slippers. I kept getting holes in them. I would have to darn them, over and over. I know why they call that darning!! So, I bought some gunk that goes on tool handles, and fixed them right up. They feel the same on my feet, but, no more slipping around in the kitchen. The bottoms are not slippery any more. Oh, well, hopefully no more darning!
Housework calls! Darn It!
