WOW I found someone as busy as me:lol so do you have a list or can you remember it all in your head? me i have to have a list and mark off as I go :lol

 

 

Hugs,

sissie

 

 

I swear I've done more crochet in the last several months than I have in the last several years :lol So far I'm doing good and not having to have a list. For the most part everything is for a few select people so I'm not worrying too much yet. As for hotpads, I figure I'll just make up a bunch and then have mom tell me how many she really needs/wants.

Do you have a simple pattern for your hotpads? how many do you think she is going to need?

I have the lightbulb hotpad pattern that was an Annie's Attic Free pattern of the day a few months ago. I also have one that I recently found and cannot think of the name right now. It's done in 2 round motifs. Then 4 or 5 of them are joined together. I also found a bell someplace, so I'll have a nice variety.

I got one square done! DBF and I went for a nice long 31 mile bike ride yesterday and I took some yarn with to work on a square on the drive to the trail.

DBF and I stopped at Goodwill today to donate some stuff. While there I told him I wanted to see if I could find a headboard I liked. I didn't find a headboard, but I did find all this:

The image is clickable. The black, white and gray I'm thinking I'll leave as is. I'll just wash it and re-tuck in the ends. It's 7 squares by 5 squares and each one is about 10". The purple is also about lapghan size, so I'm thinking of leaving that one as is as well. There's a shawl that will be washed and sent. The rest I'll be taking apart to use for my squares. I got all of those for only $16!

We're doing the MS150 April 26/27. It's 150 miles between Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven, FL and Seaworld in Orlando. 75 miles each way. It's to raise funds to fight Multiple Sclerosis, which is no fun. If you're interested in my story, I have it at http://www.freewebs.com/ridetoerasems/

I made my Mom a Lapghan for Mothers Days last year... and she proudly showed it to anyone and everyone she came into contact with her while she lived at a nursing home. She's recently passed...

And I'd love to make a square or two...

She would love this.
