What a surprise!

I was away for a couple days and when I get back I find a big surprise. Not 1 but 2 awards. I'm a little tickled because I am so new to this blogging thing. But Thank You  to  Dorothy from Hooks 'n Grannies and to Little Orphan Skein for the Award.

Now here are the rules, and what I have to do.
1.Add the award to your blog.
2.Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.
3.Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4.List the rules.
5.Award to 15 bloggers.
6.Inform each of the 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Things about me...

1. I am almost 5 foot tall.. being short is not one of my favorite things.
2.I live in SW Minnesota, and we have had very little snow this year. Yeah
3.I Love thrift shops  and garage sales.
4.I like to go play bingo on Thursday nights.
5.I want to learn to make the little crochet critters. Amigurumi,  think my grandchildren would love them.
6.One of my favorite web sites is www.crochetpatterncentral.com  If you haven't been there check it out lots of good things.
7.I love to read and I got a Nook tablet for Christmas.

My biggest  challenge will be the finding 15 people to pass the award to so if I give to someone who has already been selected sorry and I don't know if you would have to pass this on or not.

Another one of my Hobbies.

Besides crocheting I also love to take pictures, especially of our Grandchildren. I like to dabble and do different things with them, Here is just a sample.

Levi enjoying a cool splash in the pool on a hot summer day.


Tatum this was taken when she had just turned 2. I entered this photo in the county fair and got a 1st. place ribbon. This has to be one of my favorites.


This is just a little walk.

Keagan this child is the hardest kid ever to get a picture of.


This is Gage he is the youngest of the bunch. I had alot of fun doing this one. I may have to enter this one in the fair, who knows.

So now you have a little taste of my passions. I
I am so thankful for our 4 healthy grandchildren, 3 wonderful children  
and for a great husband that I have. We are celebrating our 32nd  Anniversary
today. I keep teasing him, I think I deserve a diamond  for every ten yrs. lol
I'll keep ya posted but I am sure that won't happen. :)

Another round ripple

Hello everyone, wow I feel like I have missed so much. I have been busy trying to catch up on all the little things I keep putting off. This little round ripple was made for my great niece Abby. She's a yr old already wow the time flies. I wanted to put up a  picture of the other  baby blanket but of course my batteries are dead, so I decided to show you Abby's. Also finished my giant granny blanket.
I am having troubles deciding what to make next. I have so many things I want to do.
Congrats to Debi. on your award way to go.
