The Sisters

Well, what do you think? Aren't these the sweetest little girls? My good friend, Pam, and I are adopting these little babies. The pix is at about 7 week old. Yorkie's. My baby girl, Kirstin, has a birthday coming up and isn't this just about the best gift? She has wanted one for a long time! Wish us luck!

Congratulations Melanie!

My niece, Melanie, graduated from SVSU today and is a Secondary Education School Teacher! We are so proud of her! She has a job already teaching in Saginaw Public School (Summer School). She is a wonderful sweet and intelligent girl and we all love her so much! Just look at her proud Mama! We had a picnic at a lovely park in Saginaw yesterday to celebrate. But it was soooo cold! We all huddled and shivered under whatever warm thing we could find to wrap up in. But is was a beautiful day all in all. The second picture is my Kirstin with her cousin Melanie. Of course Kirstin can't figure out why anyone would want to spend any more time in a school than necessary, especially as a teacher! LOL. Teenagers.

Yarn Swifting

Well, that sure makes a difference! After searching for an economical swift I found one on ebay! It was only $22.95 or so plus shipping and folds up small, easy to use! I had fun actually winding hte yarn. I need to estimate how to divide the skein better, but the second one went better. The yarn is Lisa Souza. One is Spumoni, aqua, lighter color and the other is Pink Ribbon or something like that. It sure looks different after you wind it into a ball.
Yes it has been way too long since my last post and this one will be short. Haven't actually done a lot of knitting lately. Work has been kind of busy and I actually have gotten called in 5 of the last 4 call days I've been one. Helps with the paycheck and yarn addiction!
Getting ready for the painter to come so have lots of things to remove from the walls and furniture to move.
