Still here, just been busy......

I have been on hat kick.  Still have 3 more to finish and post.  Made this little boy hat for a friend.  I think it turned it out pretty good.  I think I used this free pattern.  LOL

I am late on posting the next rows for CAL.  Sorry about that.  Just been busy.  I will try and get a few rows posted soon.  I GOT a part-time job.  Whoo hooo.  I am so excited and so grateful for the help from a dear friend.  :)
So is everyone ready for Thanksgiving?  What about Christmas?  I can not believe this year is almost over.  Where did the time fly to? 
If you stop by, take some time to say Hi.  :)
Untill next time.

Dear God!

Dear God,

I'm writing to say I'm sorry
For being angry yesterday
When you seemed to ignore my prayer
And things didn't go my way

First, my car broke down
I was very late for work
But I missed that awful accident
Was that your handiwork?

I found a house I loved
But others got there first
I was angry, then relieved
When I heard the pipes had burst!

Yesterday, I found the perfect dress
But the color was too pale
Today, I found the dress in red
Would you believe, it was on sale!

I know you're watching over me
And I'm feeling truly blessed
For no matter what I pray for
You always know what's best!

I have this circle of E-mail friends,
Who mean the world to me;
Some days I "send" and "send",
At other times, I let them be.

When I see each name download,
And view the message they've sent;
I know they've thought of me that day,
And "well wishes" were their intent.

I am so blessed to have these friends,
With whom I've grown so close;
So this little poem I dedicate to them,
Because to me they are the "Most"!

So to you, my friends, I would like to say,
Thank you for being a part;
Of all my daily contacts,
This comes right from my heart.

God bless you all is my prayer today,
I'm honored to call you "friend";
I pray the Lord will keep you safe,
Until we write again.

God Bless You

Crochet Thread Baby Booties & CAL

Finished my thead baby booties today.  Size should be 0-3 months, guess should measure.  :)
I still need to find buttons and also want to find some small bows to place in center to cover the boo boo I made.

I will be doing a CAL.  Care to join? Our project is a Filet Winter Rose Scarf.  If you can crochet, then you can do filet crochet.  I will be writing up the instructions from a graph and also posting pictures, so that anyone who has always wanted to do filet can join in the fun.  I plan on doing this slow, as it is close to Holidays and I do have alot going on.  Suggested thread is #10 or smaller and needle to match thread.  I plan on using Aunt Lydia's Copper mist 350 yds and will need approx. 5-6 balls.  I will also use my #5 1.90mm neede.

Give a shout in the comments if you plan on joining and stay tuned.  Should be starting in about 7 days or so.

Pattern is called:
Pretty butterfly from Gourmet Crochet
Delilah Pearl Collection Thread Baby Shoes
Here is a link to the Filet Winter Rose Scarf.
Little different then the graph I have, I think.

Pumpkin Beanie

I can not believe I almost forgot my pumpkin beanie I had made to wear to a Halloween party over the weekend.  I hate to dress up for Halloween, so I figured I would make a hat and wear an orange shirt and go as a pumpkin.  LOL  Pattern can be found here.  I did add the curly que.  I also had to add a few more rounds before the ribbing edging. 
Wanted to add photo that was taken at Books A Million during our weekly knit/crochet meeting.
The lady behind me is Bobbie.
