PREEMIE WRAPS


19 LITTLE PREEMIE WRAPS READY TO GO. I BOUGHT 1 YARD EACH OF PINK AND BLUE FLANNEL AND 2 YARDS OF WHITE COTTON. I WAS ABLE TO MAKE 18 WRAPS AND I STILL HAVE ENOUGH LEFT OVER TO MAKE 6 PINK AND 6 BLUE 6 INCH WRAPS.
I WENT TO TOWN YESTERDAY TO GET THE MATERIAL AND BACK AGAIN TODAY TO GET BLUE RIBBON, WHICH THEY DIDN'T HAVE. GOOD THING I DIDN'T WAIT ON THE BLUE RIBBON I JUST USED WHITE. CAN YOU TELL I'M HOME ALONE? TIM'S HUNTING EVERYDAY AFTER WORK UNTIL THE END OF THE MONTH, WHICH IS NEARLY HERE. I GUESS I'M GETTING IN ALL THE CRAFT TIME I CAN UNTIL THEN.
OH, I FORGOT ABOUT THE ONE LITTLE SILKIE WRAP AT THE BOTTOM, THAT MAKES 19.

36 STOCKINS AND 3 BOXES OF CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL WERE BOUGHT ON SALE. THE STOCKINGS WERE 1.00 EACH I GAVE .10 FOR EACH AND THE CARDS WERE 3.00 EACH AND I GOT THEM FOR .30 A BOX.



HERE WE HAVE 25 STOCKINGS THAT VICKI MY SISTER-IN-LAW DONATED TO THE CAUSE. THAT'S 61 ALL TOGETHER. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN 61.00 WITHOUT TAX, NO WAY WOULD I HAVE BOUGHT THEM AT THAT PRICE. BUT WHO COULD PASS UP SAVING 54.90? THE LADY SAID THEY WERE MARKED DOWN YESTERDAY. I'M SO GLAD THESE WERE STILL THERE. I SEE A LITTLE PREEMIE HAT TUCKED INSIDE THEM FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR. THAT'S 61 BABIES GETTING THEIR FIRST CHRISTMAS STOCKING FROM AUNT KATHY AND AUNT VICKI. I CAN'T WAIT.

UPDATE ON RODNEY

RODNEY'S GOOD AT THIS TIME. NINA HAD TO TAKE HIM TO THE ER SEVERAL DAYS AGO BECAUSE HE HAD FLUID ON HIS LUNGS. HIS DR. ONLY GAVE HIM 10 DAYS OF FLUID PILLS. ALL IS WELL NOW AS FAR AS I KNOW. I CALL HIM BUT CAN'T GO SEE HIM NOW BECAUSE TIM HAS A COLD AND WE DON'T WANT RODNEY TO GET IT.
A SPECIAL THANKS TO JENNY FOR ASKING ABOUT HIM.
I WISH I WAS BETTER AT SCRAP BOOKING BECAUSE I MADE RODNEY ONE AND IT'S REAL PLAIN. I'VE SEEN SOME DROP DEAD GORGEOUS ONES ON OTHER BLOGS. OH WELL, IT WAS MADE WITH LOVE AND PRAYERS. I MADE A COPY OF ALL THE COMMENTS LEFT BY EVERYONE AND PUT THEM IN HIS BOOK. HE'LL LOVE IT. IF YOU WANT TO LEAVE A COMMENT I'LL PUT IT IN THERE TO.

REMEMBER THOSE LITTLE PREEMIE BLANKETS I MADE AWHILE BACK? I MADE 4 PINK BONNETS AND GOWNS TO GO WITH SOME OF THEM. I HAD TO TAKE A PICTURE OF A GOWN LAYING ON ONE OF THE BLANKETS. THANK YOU HANNAH FOR THE BLANKET MATERIAL AND THANK YOU PATSY FOR THE GOWN MATERIAL. SOMEONE GAVE PATSY THE MATERIAL AT A YARD SALE LAST YEAR. A GREAT BIG THANK YOU FOR THE SECRET DONATION.



I WISH YOU COULD SEE THE LITTLE STARS GOING DOWN THE FRONT OF TWO OF THE GOWNS. MAYBE IF YOU CLICK ON THE PICTURE YOU CAN SEE THEM. I FOUND THIS FOR .75 REGULAR 3.23. I ALSO GOT SOME BLUE MOONS FOR THE BOYS.

LAPGHAN


ANOTHER LAPGHAN FOR THE NURSING HOME MADE FROM YARN RODNEY DONATED.
RODNEY IS DOING AS WELL AS MOST WHO HAVE OPEN HEART SURGERY. HE'S BEEN GOING TO WAL-MART AND WALKING THE WAY TIM DID. IT'S TO COLD TO WALK OUTSIDE AND HE'S NOT READY FOR A TREAD MILL YET, HE NEEDS TO BE MONITORED ON ONE OF THOSE AT THIS POINT, SO WAL-MART IS A GREAT PLACE TO WALK. HE IS HAVING SOME CHEST PAIN THAT'S WORRING HIM SO PLEASE KEEP HIM IN YOUR PRAYERS.

PREEMIE HATS, SCARF AND SHAWL


2 NEWBORN HATS AND 1 PREEMIE HAT MADE WITH THE KNIFTY KNITTER AND 8 CROCHETED PREEMIE HATS. PREEMIE HATS WERE MADE USING UP SOME LITTLE BALLS OF LEFT OVER YARN.



I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THIS SHAWL AND SCARF BEFORE I WASHED IT, SO HERE THEY ARE DRYING. THEY WERE MADE USING LION BRAND HOMESPUN YARN THAT RODNEY GAVE ME. I HAVE A TINY BALL LEFT OUT OF 6 SKEINS OF THIS YARN, BUT I MADE 2 SHAWLS AND 2 SCARFS. THESE TWO WILL BE GOING TO THE NURSING HOME. I'M TRYING TO GET A FEW THINGS READY FOR RODNEY TO TAKE TO THE NURSING HOME TO GIVE OUT. I LIKE TO CROCHET THESE BIGGER THINGS IN THE WINTER WHEN YOU WANT A LITTLE EXTRA WARMTH ON YOUR LEGS.

ANYONE FOR A BOAT RIDE?


A PICTURE OF HARLIE ENJOYING A RIDE DOWN THE CREEK IN HER GREEN TUB. IF THE CREEK IS STILL RUNNING HER MOM IS GOING TO TAKE A BETTER PICTURE TODAY.
HARLIE CLAIMED THIS TUB A FEW MONTHS AGO. THEY FOUND HER ASLEEP IN IT ONE MORNING. SHE HAD PUT IT ON TOP OF HER BED, PUT A PILLOW AND HER COVER IN IT AND CURLED UP INSIDE AND WENT TO SLEEP. SHE HAS PULLED TOGETHER BIG TOYS (GREEN TUB IN THE MIDDLE) AND PUT HER BLANKIE OVER THEM TO MAKE A FORT . SHE HAS PUT HER TUB BEHIND THE DRAPES TO MAKE A SECRET HIDE OUT. I GUESS SHE WAS HIDING FROM BABY BROTHER. NOW IT'S A BOAT. I'M SURE THERE'S MORE THINGS I DON'T KNOW ABOUT. I LOVE HER IMAGINATION AND HER MOM FOR LETTING IT RUN WILD.

UPDATE ON RODNEY

RODNEY GOT TO LEAVE THE HOSPITAL AROUND 8:00 PM THE 5TH. I WAS GOING TO POST ABOUT IT LAST NIGHT AFTER I FOUND OUT BUT FELL ASLEEP. HE'S SORE FROM ALL THE MOVING AROUND, BUT OH SO HAPPY TO BE HOME. THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT'S BEEN PRAYING FOR HIM.

HATS


A SLOW START FOR 2009, I ONLY HAVE TWO HATS MADE. THESE WERE MADE USING THE KNIFTY KNITTER. I HAVE ANOTHER ONE ON THE LOOM. I'M ALSO GOING TO START ON ANOTHER WHEELCHAIR SHAWL TODAY, WHO KNOWS I MIGHT EVEN MAKE A PREEMIE HAT OR TWO. I FORGOT I DO HAVE A PREEMIE HAT THAT I MADE AT THE HOSPITAL WHILE WAITING TO SEE RODNEY, I'LL POST IT LATER.

Friday, January 2, 2009

OH HAPPY DAY

RODNEY GOT A ROOM TODAY. WE TALKED TO HIM ON THE PHONE FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES. HE SOUNDED SO MUCH BETTER. I KNOW HE'LL JUST KEEP GETTING BETTER NOW. NINA WENT TO GET HIM SOMETHING BESIDES HOSPITAL FOOD TO EAT SO WE DIDN'T GET TO TALK TO HER TONIGHT.
I'M GOING TO COPY ALL MY POST AND COMMENTS ABOUT RODNEY AND MAKE A SCRAP BOOK PAGE OUT OF THEM FOR HIM. I WANT HIM TO KNOW PEOPLE HE'S NEVER HEARD OF CARED ABOUT HIM AND WAS PRAYING FOR HIM.
AGAIN THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND WARM THOUGHTS.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

I PRAY EVERYONE WILL HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR.

RODNEY MAY GET TO GO TO A ROOM TODAY. HE 'S HAVING SOME TROUBLE WITH HIS LUNGS BECAUSE HE CAN'T BREATHE DEEP ENOUGH. IT HURTS SO THIS IS NORMAL. HE IS EATING, THAT'S A GOOD THING.

LAST OF 2008 DONATIONS


LOOK WHAT I GOT FOR AUNT JANELLE AND MYSELF. I MADE ONE HAT AND IT WAS REALLY EASY. THE ONLY BAD THING ABOUT IT IS I CAN'T MAKE A PREEMIE HAT WITH IT. JUST NEWBORN AND UP. HOW SAD THAT KNIFTY KNITTER DOESN'T MAKE A SMALLER LOOM.


A SCARF AND WHEELCHAIR SHAWL FOR THE NURSING HOME. YOU CAN'T TELL IN THE PICTURE BUT THE SHAWL IS OPEN IN THE FRONT .
THANKS FOR THE ADVICE JENNY.
