Today we went to AC Moore and got some yarn. I have the heavy worsted weight but none of the sports weight which is what I need right now so we went there to see what I could get. They had a whole wall of yarn for $1.00 a skein. There was all different weight and colors so I got 35 different ones. Some I got more than one of a color because I knew what I would make from those and needed two. I got two big balls of a fluffy brown yarn to make a teddy bear and to big balls of a fluffy grey for a mouse or squirrel. Most of the others I’ll use for Barbie clothes. I have made a sweater from my heavy yarn but it was too big for my dolls but I can use it as a coat. I’ll show you when I finish,
I did not put together Lucinda today, Oscar sits in front of the TV and looks at me, making me feel guilty about his eye.
I just could not take it any longer so I cut his eyes out and pined them in where they belong.
Now he looks like a bear. Then I had to figure out a way to tie them on without taking all his stuffing out.
You can see the pins holding the eyes on. I finally got them in but they do have a white center on them.
Not too bad and he doesn’t look mad at me while I watch TV, This morning I traced the patterns for their clothes and Shirley sent me some cloth to make them and some for dresses for me. Patty brought it back from Jacksonville when she came home today. Also, Thank you Shirley for the yarn. I’ll use the pink for a Christmas sweater for one of my girls, Gina or Dyhana. Such a nice lot of yarn!!
I got a book called Wild and Wonderful Fleece Animals today in the mail. It is just what I wanted to make walrus, turtle, snakes frogs, monkeys and more. 20 different one in all but the patterns were not in the book as they say on the cover so I had to write to the company through Amazon about getting the patterns. The directions aren’t any good without the patterns!! I do have another book ordered for the circus animals and the farm animals and now with all the yarn and fleece I have I should be able to keep very busy all summer.
Shanti, my fruit also came today and this time it is pineapple. What a big one I can’t wait to cut into it tomorrow morning for breakfast. Their fruit is always great!! Thank you. Dad got his coffee too and he says to tell you it is very good. Each one gets better than the one before.
Have a good day.
Oscar does look better night!! He probaly can see better too.
It is snowing here tonight-supposed to be several inches
Oh, I always hated those spring snow storms, it made it seem that winter would never leave. In New Hampshire the spring snow storms were called “poor man’s fertilizer ” That is because snow has nitrogen in it that the snow takes out of the air and releases in the soil. So I guess the spring storms do some good. Carol
