Ok, I have survived the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It was so much fun. What a great way to spend the day. I bought 3 things, well, not counting the kettle corn, so I was very good.

Announce the arrival of spring with fresh daisy style. One of the garden's happiest flowers, this sunny bloom adds a bright spot to parties and get-togethers, serving up everything from chips and dips to olives and pickles with flair. Each petal is an individual serving dish surrounding the yellow ...

Very cute and useful too!

Good Karma

Ok, so you see my fab Ravelry progress bars over there? Well, I had the darndest time trying to figure out how to get them to work and after fiddling with it for 2 days I posted on the website and I had a response in about 10 minutes, tried it out and whammo, instant bars! So, thanks to phoneix and mimosa I finally figured it out. Fast forward to today. I am poking around in the forums and I see some poor soul with the same exact problem I had. I pointed her in the right direction and she made me a thank you graphic! (See bottom of blog for my cute little lamb!) So, thank you L and enjoy your new Rav bars!

Weekend at Last

I am going to spend the morning trying to get my Ravelry progress bars to show up. Movie club is here at 1, and then perhaps start my 2nd Roman Rib Sock?

ETA: Ok, Ravelry rocks! I got immediate help and now my bars are there :) Oh happy day! Now I can show my non rav friends my progress!

Dec. 5, 2007 - and so we begin

There are several reasons to blog...

1. So I can have it show up on my cool Ravelry site
2. To link to all my friends cool blogs
3. To make myself feel younger :)

So, let's get started...

Today was fun - got the 1st snowfall of the DC area season and already people are complaining about how the road crews handled the <1" we got. Here we go again.

Kids enjoyed playing in the snow, made great snowballs what little there was.
