Hand painted yarn

Here is a pair of small wool soakers I made from Penny's hand painted yarn. I love how it worked up. She will be listing her hand dyed and painted yarns on Etsy soon. This skein made me think of a froggy playing in a pond.
More pics here at my Etsy shop.

Health update, because some of your sweet ladies have asked. The new meds I have been taking once a week, stink. That crazy pill knocks me on my hiney and I do not even know my name for about 3 days/daze. The good news is I do not have to take it this week. Having a blood transfusion with platelets on Wednesday, so off the nasty medicine for a week. Sad when I am looking forward to this procedure which makes my head pound like a jackhammer. BUT at least I still know who I am. Trade offs work for me. I am easy like that. :o)

Do you swag?

Search & Win
 Swag Bucks is rocking my world! I am serious!!! It is a search engine that gives you points. You then redeem your points for "stuff". I am redeeming mine for Amazon gift cards. For every 450 points, I get a $5 gift card. It is all electronic. And with the super saver deal on Amazon, spend $25 (on Amazon items) and get free shipping, it has alllllllllll been free! Just for downloading a search engine and using it to look up stuff. Easypeasy! It is the same search engine as Google. This isn't a gimmick or a scam. But the best thing going!!! If you want to try it out, I have a box at the end of my blog, you just type in what you wanna look for and there you go. You got it. 
Again, you gotta try this!!! I mean seriously, who doesn't like FREE~!?!

My mini dresses

These lil' darlings are 4-inches tall and from crochet thread. I need to make several more for my tree.
Thank YOU everyone for buying the dress dishcloths and baby hats on Etsy. If you missed out on the red/white dresses, I have more added in now. And a retro green and pink set.
Hope you are staying coooooooooool!

Working up dishcloths

in cheery red and white. (These are a bit larger than my previous ones and a different flower.) I love these lil' dresses.
I have added a couple sets to my Etsy shop. Still working on goodies for Farmer's Market as I can. Have started a new medicine that has knocked me on my hiney. It is like chemo without the "bathroom issues". Lovely....On the up side, my family is all coming over tomorrow evening for a visit. That always makes me happy. :o) Hope your weekend is sweet too.

God is in control

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” -Jeremiah 29:11-13
