We went to see The Croods for our niece's birthday, I didn't like the movie too much, give me the Flintstones any day. Then it was off to their house for pizza and cake, but I should have stayed home, but who can turn down pizza and cake.

I am feeling lousy, so I will probably say good night now, I do have to work, I can't afford to miss any more work time.


Good night everyone.
I hope you are better soon, xmas!

Good evening, MMC!

I'm wide awake now - work, a walk and a large coffee seemed to have perked me right up.

Mouse is snoozing, Palmer is running amok and I am about to relax and read the biography I started last night. The next two days are pretty full so I need to get some sleep tonight!

Be safe and have MERRY dreams!

It's kind of cheezy, I like it, not in my top 10 either but what's Christmas without cheese.

Sounds like a great scheme. I saw a quilt one time that was red, white, and blue, but not the "normal" red, white, and blue. I always thought it would make a beautiful afghan. I wish I could find something in those colors so you could see what I mean. I will keep looking! I also saw some yarn that I just might go back and buy that was a warm brown (almost taupe) muted turquoise, and cream. The turquoise was about the color of a Siamese cat's eyes. I thought that would look good in a ripple afghan. Normally I think of colors for ripple afghans since I love that pattern and since it is easy to do.

Once I have a few of the flowers done, I will be able to tell if I can use other colors. It would be nice to use up some of the "scraps" I have. I have a dark purple I want to add in and a darker teal, too, but I'm not sure if they'll work with the blue. I have so much of that color - when yarn was on sale I bought lots of it years ago. I finally decided to use my stash up.

I've seen totes that have places for the skeins and then a hole through which you thread the yarn. This is helpful if you are working with more that one color.
