A few weeks ago my daughter and I spent sometime checking out a few 2nd hand shops in a near by town and I came away as one happy camper ( a expression my hubby uses ). First of all I came across a small mountain of  the cream and sugar yarn. Look I got 13 balls for a bargain of $4.00 that is 13 cents a piece.  :) :) All brand new full skeins.. :)

My second find made me so happy. When we were stationed overseas, I started to collect nesting dolls, some people call them stacking dolls. I have ones from Poland and Russia, some I am not sure probably China doesn't matter to me I just love them. I found a very pretty set in my favorite color for only $1.00 I couldn't be more lucky. Here she is.

Here is a couple pictures of the rest of my collection, I took them all out of the cabinet and tried to get them in groups pictures aren't the best but you will get a general idea.

I wish my camera took better pictures, the lighting doesn't always turn out the best. Hum, maybe that will be my next investment.
Our March in Minnesota has been so nice that I haven't made much progress on my wool-eater blanket, just been outside to much.
Well hope you all have a wonderful weekend if I am not back before then with another post. I did have one more fine on my hunt for goodies but I am going to save that for another time.. Till next time Happy Crocheting.

Wool-eater progress

Hello friends just thought I would share some pictures of my progress on the wool-eater. I should be further but my Fibromyalgia  has been acting up lately. Hope everyone is well. Oh, and I finally get to meet my new great niece today. I'm so excited.

Front and back view. I Love it.

WIP Wenseday

Earlier this week I came along this new pattern. The wool-eater, so I decided to join the Wool-eater 2012 CAL I  wanted to do the oblong one originally but for some reason it wasn't working for me so I switched to the square, and it's coming along just fine. It's never to late to join.  Have a wonderful day.

Project finished

Well I finished my latest baby blanket. Just in time also, my little great niece Mykenna arrived early on February 17th. She weighed in at a whopping 4lb. 9.5oz. I did say little. I haven't been able to go see her yet. I am hoping this weekend.
I can't wait to meet her..
