New Computer

Amy got tired of coming here trying to get on my computer and hearing me complain about all the troubles I have been having with it.
She surprised me with a new one
This has Windows 7 and it is different

She came walking in yesterday afternoon with it came into my computer room where I was sitting and said "shut it down." after about 20 to 30 minutes of telling her to take it back to the store she opened the box. Next thing I knew she was disconnecting the old one and set up the new one. I was concerned about my older printers but she got both of them working. I have 2 printers one for everyday and one is a scanner and prints nice pictures.
Now this weekend I have the task of loading up my programs. Going to be careful not to load all of them. Especially the one I haven't used in decades..lol. I sure hope the ones I do load work with Windows 7.
Maybe now I will be able to catch up on things.

Another Hot Bottle Warmer Done

2 done 1 more to go. I don't know who will get this one Amy or Timmi. They both wanted one and I bought similar yarn for both. This one turned out better than the first. I did the"ribbing " better on this one. But I bind off very tight. I made button holes on this one too instead of loops. Like this better.


Can you say WORTHLESS... HAHAHAHA. Abby fell asleep on Tim's lap and she stays like this.

Another Knit Project

I really like to keep my hands busy while while TV with Tim in the evenings. Yesterday I was looking for another knitting project to do . Help me practice.
Looking on the Internet thru some of my mother in law old books. Most of her books were all sweaters. I don't want to attempt that yet but nothing caught my eye. A scarf seem too simple just rows and rows I did that with the hot water bottle warmer. I found this dog sweater.. hahaha. Of course a sweater for Abby. And if I mess it up it won't be so bad. You know me anything for my little girl. Good thing I have all these old needles all different sizes and lots of old yarn. I don't have to buy them. This is what I did last night. Knitting is slow for me.
My neighbor's daughter just bought a home and I am making her a quilt. She told me she likes it simple not a scrappy. This is as simple as it gets. These are the colors of her bedroom and bath.

First Knitting Project Finished

I finished up my first knitting project. My hot water bottle cover.
There are a few mistakes but it works. I am learning. I also think I will put on another button in the middle. I don't think it came out too bad. I learned to cast on, knit, purl, decrease, ( knit 2 together) and bind off. I know I will have to go back to u tube again and again .
Now I need to find another knitting project that is easy. I don't want to do scarfs. Any suggestions?
I am also working on a baby quilt. My nephew is having his first baby. I can't post on here cause his wife checks out my blog.

Dylan Sews

We had Dylan Austin for the weekend. His little brother Harley is sick he couldn't come. Dylan has mentioned a few times he wanted to learn to sew . He just like the sound of my sewing machine and watching the needle go up and down. I told him he could sew today. I cut out all the fabric he needed for a pillow case for him and his brother. He sewed all the seams. He can't reach the pedal , thank goodness I have a button on the machine to sew.

Knitting

I am trying to teach myself to Knit.

I am left handed but I figure since I am using 2 needles , both hands may as well learn right handed.
My index finger is so sore. hahahahaha, pressing the tips of the needle. I did inherit all of my mother in laws old books and needles. They have been in the closet for over 13 years. ( These are her needles, I wonder how old they are?)I always kept them knowing ONE DAY, one day I will learn. I saw this cute hot bottle warmer that was knitted. It said it was easy. Hmmmm I thought well lets give it a try.

I have crocheted fro year since I was a teen but never really learned to knit.
Lets see how far I get. This is 2 evening worth of knitting. I wonder if this will get finished.
Am I knitting too tight? And how much will be torn out.

Daddy And His Little Girl

Last night going to bed
Here is Tim sleeping and Abby all cuddled up next to him. We allow Abby to be in our bed until we shut off the lights . Then I put her in her crate for the night. Tim doesn't sleep good when Abby is in bed with us. Tim is afraid he will roll on her. You can see why. Abby in her Snuggie, sound asleep both of them. Can you say SPOILED.
