~ Boo to you! ~

Hi everyone!  I'm back from the campground, and boy did we have fun!  I haven't got all the pictures edited yet, but when I do, I will add them to this post.

Here is a group of lovely ladies - me, my sister Laura, and our friend Joanie:

This is most of the group standing in front of the Haunted TeePee - I think there are a couple missing though.

How cool would this be as a Halloween costume?

~ a baby cocoon and a doily re-do ~

Good morning ladies.  I finished up the baby cocoon last night.  This one is a little larger than the ones I usually crochet.  It measures 11 1/2" across x 14 1/2" top to bottom.  I used 2 skeins of the Vanna's Tapestry yarn I bought at AC Moore a little bit ago.  The color is called 'Peru'.  

I also re-crocheted a border onto one of the doilies I have hanging on my craft room shelf.  I took off the pink border and removed 2 buttons, then crocheted on a yellow border and replaced the 2 buttons with a yellow one and a pink one.  This is the doily before:

this is what it looks like now:

The pattern is from here - http://item.rakuten.co.jp/gosyo/amikomo3-13/
scroll down a little and click on 'knitting diagram'.

That's it for now - see ya next time.  :)

~ poncho is finished ~

I swear I will never use the bumpy, loopy boucle yarn again.  This stuff was such a pain to crochet with - I had to force myself to keep going.  Not fun at all.  I do like my poncho though.  :)

~ a yarn question ~

Does anyone know what brand of yarn this is?

I bought this yarn from AC Moore - it came in a mill-ends bag that gives no information whatsoever.  It feels like acrylic to me, but I'd like to know for sure.

Thanks ladies.  :)

~ bits & pieces #8 ~

Here's a picture of the progress I've made with my poncho.  I know - it's not much.

this is the mystery yarn I'm using.

A really dusty bird flew into one of the front windows and left a very interesting print.  I hope you can see it.
Don't worry - he must not of been hurt because he wasn't there when I went out on the porch.

This is crazy Ladybug taking a nap.  That's gotta be uncomfortable.

This car's alarm kept beeping at me.
I pull up and open the door -
beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
I get out and close the door -
beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
I walk in front of it -
beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
It did the same thing when I came back.
The alarm is way too sensitive.
Also - maybe they should of spent some of that tire rim money on some parking lessons.
Just saying.

Have a great day.  :)

"Rosie!!  Rosie!!"  
"Charlie!!  Charlie!!"

The 1st person who can tell me where those two lines come from, will win two (2) skeins of the Vanna's Tapestry yarn in the 'Peru' colorway.  
(the picture of the yarn is in the post below)

Good luck!!

Ok - Melanie guessed it.  It's from 'The African Queen".
Congrats Melanie!!
email me your address at dlyrs@juno.com and I'll get the yarn to you as soon as I can.

Vince and I watched that movie last night.
It was pretty good.
