I made Nellie Belle a shrug based on this pattern. After having her try it on 3 times for "fittings" she ran off to bed with dh. That is totally out of personality for Nellie B--usually she has to be the last one up. Anyway, I'll "capture" her tomorrow and have her model it for you.
The scamming Card Services just called AGAIN! This time I was able to press "9" and get someone. The man asked "are you calling to lower your interest rate?" I replied, "I pressed 9 to tell you not to call me again." Click. This time the number I was called from was (567) 259-9780. This call came in at 2:39 pm. The previous call was at 2:15 pm. Filed 2nd complaint of the day with the "Do Not Call" registry.
The scamming Credit "Card Services" called again. When I pressed "9" to talk with a representative, it hung up on me so I wasn't able to tell them to get lost again. I'm off to fill out ANOTHER complaint. The number they called from this time was (637) 000-2238. Do not have anything to do with these people if they call you. They are identity thieves.
The weather here is crazy. When the rest of the country was snow-bound, we didn't get snow. Now, the temperatures are above freezing and it's snowing like crazy. Strange, strange weather! I love my spruce tree in the front yard and you've probably seen it numerous times in my blog. I think it looks so pretty with snow on the branches. If you click on the picture you can see the snow coming down. Have a nice, warm day everyone...
I've recently discovered that making baby booties helps to use up those small balls of left-over yarn. Here's a cute girlie pair made out of dk weight yarn. I have some of this yarn in my stash of left-over yarn and I just might make a pair of these. I bet making them out of ww would work for an older baby or maybe even a younger toddler.
