Pink Sweater for Abby

I finished Abby’s little sweater.. I like this one much better than the plain red. I am getting better at ribbing too. A few more items then I will TRY to make a sweater for myself and the girls.

Abby’s Little Bag

I needed to make Abby a bag to hold all her new grooming tools. I didn’t want anything too big  just large enough to hold her clippers, scissors and etc. When I finally learn to give her a hair cut I can just grab the one bag and I am ready to go. 



Amy saw it and said   boy this is “Mommy fabric”. Can you tell I am still not feeling 100% I twisted the one handle. I didn’t notice it until I was completely done. grrrrrrr..

Abby's New Sweater

I finished Abby's new sweater. Since I am leaning to knit I am practicing on making Abby and Emma some sweaters.
It could be a little more wider but I was following a pattern. I don't know how to adjust a pattern yet. She is just so fluffy. There are some mistakes in the ribbing. I need to practice, practice practice. I liked this sweater cause it was long. She has a long body. The ones I bought in the store are all too short. Next one will be PINK (of course). The red yarn Ijust had laying around here.

New Program

My friend Liz told me about this new program she uses to write her blog. I am going to give it a try.


This a baby Jacob and Abby. He love Abby

Out With the Old In With The New

Funny how we get dependant on gadgets. We have had a microwave for since 1985 The first one we had was a counter one. Huge big black thing. It still works and is in the attic. When the one above the stove breaks we would get it down and use it til we got another. We have even loaned it out . Like I said over 25 years old and still works. Tim has replaced the microwave three times since living in this house. We moved in 1992. This time he has to replace the back panel that is attached to the wall. I guess he was able to use the same panel.
When he took the panel off the old old wallpaper was there. That wallpaper was here when we bought the house. Do you remember the corn blue flowers?
Old Microwave

We change the wallpaper when we moved in to green ivy.. Hmmmmm I think maybe we chould change it again. lol
New Microwave

I wonder how long this one will last?
