FO Friday: One WIP down!

FOfriday

Yay! Happy Dance!

Started June 10, 2012 – Finished April 3, 2012

Am conflicted about this project. It was a refreshing change from scarves. However it does not suit my voluptuous figure ;0) So it is going to the Craft Sale in June.

WIP Weds: Good news and treats!

tami_wipGood morning all!

First of all, I am delighted to report that the St.George’s Craft Sale was a great success. We made more that ever before. We are well on our way to a wheelchair ramp for the church hall. Our small group is very pleased, and we are already thinking of having another in the New Year. :0)

Things are improving on the cold front. I was very disappointed that I could not attend the Craft Sale. I am recovering slowly, but bugs seem to like to hang around and tire me out. My fellas are both better, and taking great care of me and Willow and Jack have been snoozing with me.

Meanwhile I continue on my WIP’s

Ruffle Scarf #6
