Getting ready…

I woke to thunder rolling and rain falling.  It was a peaceful way to start my day.

Today was a lazy day for me.  I watched a little t.v., took a nap, played a game… then thinking of Christmas in July, went to my yarn stash.   Thinking of Christmas made me think of winter.

I bought this yarn a few years ago for a scarf to make.  As you can see the scarf was not made.  So I started on it today.  I wound the yarn up in a ball for easier handling.


Then started crocheting the scarf.  It’s a simple design, done with two rows of single crochet and one row double crochet rotating throughout the length of it.  I’ve only just started it but here’s what is done so far.   The yarn is pure new wool, so I think it will be warm and I really like the colors in it.


So, are you taking advantage of Christmas in July, stocking up on Christmas gifts?  I know it has certainly got me thinking about it.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
