CREATIVE BLOG CHALLENGE ~ ~ ~

Kris Miller sent her materials for our third challenge project!! Love it!  Roving from a Corriedale sheep, dyed Wensleydale sheep curls, curly yarn, sparkly craft thread and a TWIG!!!  I, actually, have a good idea where I will go with this project!  I have to because we leave for Florida in two weeks ~ mine must be done and photographed and a draft for the blog done before we leave, so that I can post it on February 20th along with the others!!  Wish me luck!! Even Sonny boy was giving me his thoughts on what I should hook ~ this coming from a guy who acts like he doesn't know what I'm doing!!  Hmmmm!

The little rabbit rug is finished and steamed ~ just the binding is left and then I'll post.  Thanks for all the nice comments about it from my last post! And for all the nice compliments about the heart pillow!  I make a career about second guessing myself and thinking that I'm in over my head, but I'm feeling like I'm holding my own ~ Maria, Kris and Ali are all so talented that I'm just happy to be hangin'  with the big girls!!

Last night, I had the most fun Skype conversation with my old friend, Gwen and her daughter!  Wendy and I were instant messaging on Facebook and she said her mom was there with her ~ I asked if she had Skype and within 5 or 10 minutes, she had it installed on her computer and we spent an hour or more talking, face to face!!!   It was great!  Gwen and I have been friends since we were 13 years old ~ well over 50 years!!  We've been friends longer than many of you reading this have been alive!!!  Wendy gave me a virtual tour of her condo and we chatted like we sitting together in her living room!  Can't wait till we do it again! And speaking of friendships ~ we really need to nurture them and keep them going ~ sometimes it takes work ~ we have to make an effort to stay in contact because people's lives get so busy.  Gwen and I went to school together one year ~ in seventh grade ~ and we've stayed contact almost all of those years ~ there were a few where we weren't ~ she moved away and lived in many places thru the years ~ me, I'm pretty much in the same place.  So cherish your friends ~ keep them close ~ I try really hard to do that!

Oh!  The new dishwasher is installed ~ it is so QUIET ~ unbelievable!  And the dishes looked so CLEAN this morning ~ that old one was on it's last legs for a long time ~ good grief ~ why did we wait so long?! 

Okay ~ I'm off to make something happen ~ even if it's wrong!  Have a good weekend, peeps!!
Talk to you soon ~
Alice

Isn't Skype amazing?? Just think, 20 years ago I thought sending a fax was unbelievable!
Your new challenge materials look interesting. I know what I would do with them, so I can't wait to see what you and Sonny come up with!

Whoa, Alice, what neat items for the next Challenge! I can see a great rug from these materials! Can't wait for you to share what you do with them. And going to Florida--how exciting! Take care and have fun with your Challenge! Love, Jeanne

I am starting to think that the challenge is the wrong word for you - it is more like a catalyst, since your idea is formed almost before the box is opened. You are extremely prolific in your hooking and I wonder what your mind does when you sleep LOL. Like you, I am deadline oriented and I think that's what keeps us hungering for the next project. Can't wait to see the "twig" in position.
