I'm back! Been so busy! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We did. We had a big get-together at my grandson's & his wife's house. It was a full and happy day. I'm so late posting this picture, but I had to do so much editing of it of which I won't take up time explaining all I did. Maybe I'll post the original to save words.
|The finished one.|
|Had to take out all the table clutter & the blinding light!|
I've been crocheting something for my new grandbaby to be but can't tell or show anyone yet. You understand! And I won't be able to until the end of March.
Also, I've been knitting a scarf for myself to wear at our Red Hat Ladies Christmas party which was Sat. But I haven't knitted in years and this was something new and unusual! I had to start over several times. Most of the times were because I the needle slipped out of my hand and also out of my stitches!! And no matter how careful I was I couldn't pick them up and continue. This 'yarn' is very usual. It's called Sashay yarn. Finally, Thurs, the last time the needle slipped out I took an emery board and 'roughed-up' the very smooth bamboo needles. It helped a lot.
|Molly was trying to 'help' me knit!!|
|But finally after many 'NOs' she gave up and slept!|
|And I finished Fri. night in time for my party! This pic was after my party which is why my hair is all messed up from my red hat!|
Okay, here's the pix from the Red Hat Foxes Christmas Party. It was held at Sawgrass Beach Club at Sawgrass Country Club. It was a fun time!!!
|Me before going to the party. My hat looks plain cuz all the decorations I put on it are on the top. & the scarf doesn't show up on my vest which is why I took previous one in my mirror afterward.|
|A sea of red hats!|
|Some of the hats were really clever!|
|Unfortunately I wasn't too keen about the food. I like my daughter's cooking way better than this. This is the 'salad'!|
|The entree which was 3 slices of pork loin, a little scoop of mashed potatoes, about 6 pieces of vegetables, and a sauce that I didn't like. It's not like me to complain about food but couldn't help it. The other choice was salmon.|
|Dessert was a choice between Apple Cobbler w/a scoop of ice cream or this chocolate cake (German I think). I should have gotten the cobbler.|
|My friend Bertha and me.|
|I love this lady's hat with the Peacock feathers|
|Some of the ladies sat on the step & the rest of us stood around the top of the stairs. I was hoping to get more red hats in the picture.|
|The girl at the end is taking the formal picture of us. I didn't get my camera to her so I don't have one of them.|
Well, I have put way too much here. I will close for now. I will try to post more often. Hope you all are doing well on your holiday preparations! Gotta be doing better than me!!! I didn't even get Christmas cards made this year so I'll have to design one on my computer to be printed out. Good night for now!
