Eye Operation

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. Photo on 4-3-16 at 12.28 PM #2

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.Photo on 4-4-16 at 2.16 PM

You can see the pins holding the eyes on.  I finally got them in but they do have a white center on them.   Photo on 4-4-16 at 4.46 PM

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.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.

    Helo, Carol,
    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
