Welcome to my first Blog contest. It will run from August 1st through August 31st.
The above picture is the prize. It includes a skein of blue sock yarn, a skein of ticker tape, a skein of lion suede, a skein of modea tutu, and ball of ribbon yarn. Also included is a new I crochet hook and a set of bamboo size 7 knitting needles.
All you need to do to play is check my blog for a daily post, which will include a question... poll... riddle... etc. Something that will require a comment from you. When you comment (on the same day the post was submitted) you will earn an enrty for the prize.
If you direct another to the blog to play and they mention your referral in their comment you will also get an additional entry for the referral the first time they post.
At the end of the month I will draw a name of the winner and announce it here on my blog.
Easy, free and hopefully fun.
Don't forget to come back on August 1st.
Ok the link is missing, I can't figure it out yet. I will have a slide show to post soon.

1- Whenever I eat M&M's I always seperate the colors, and then pair them up, and if I have an odd number I will bite that one in half so it makes 2.
2- I stopped cracking my knuckles 20 years ago, but even today if someone cracks theirs in my presence I have to fight the urge to crack mine too.
3- I like pickles and tomatoes but if they are on a hamburger I must remove them and eat them first, the onions and lettuce can stay though.
4- I sometimes catch myself singing NOGGIN songs even when my grandson is not here with me.
5- I can talk on the phone for hours to one person without blinking, and usually do, several times a week. (right Shelly?)
6- I have sold Avon products since I was 18, and I still to this day have never used any soaps, cleansers, creams or make up on my face, nor have I ever had a pimple.
Now the hard part, finding some blogs to tag... let's see...
These are some blogs I check out often to see what is new, I haven't ever met or really know these talented people yet, but hopefully this will be a start.

Okay, I think all I need to do now is visit these blogs and tell them I tagged them. I am not really good at this so hopefully I did it right.

Tomorrow (Sunday) we are going to a Baptism party and I made this bib and am making a second for the gift. This was my first time trying a front post and back post crochet stitch. I have to say, I love how this turned out.
My mom got me more Trellis and Lion Suede yarn at the local dollar store... There are 12 different colors and she got me 4 of each color. They are wonderful. I am hoping to make some Christmas gifts out of this. I am making a scarf for the store managers daughter as he offered to order me yarn anytime I want. What a deal, huh?
This is the scarf so far, not even close to being finished yet. I am using the fuscia Lion suede and a wine colored ribbon yarn at the same time. A straight knit pattern except I am yo every few rows and then dropping the yo on the next row. It looks great and is very soft.
Well I better get to my other bib, tomorrow will be here before I know it.

My husband has been fishing down at the Hudson River every chance he can get. I have been telling people I feel like a "River Widow". This fish was a 28" Drum fish. He released it back in the water but he caught two of these within 20 minutes with just a worm. He was thrilled. i was so glad he didn't keep them and try to get me to cook them. YUCK
My mom stopped at the dollar store today and came back with these new balls of yarn. I have never used the Lion Suede or the Trellis yarn before and I can't wait. Well actually the Trellis yarn I didn't wait, I started the scarf patter on the ball band and am LOVING it. Very delicate and colorful. My mom wants me to make a scarf from the Suede too, so that will be next. She only got the 4 balls cause she wasn't sure if I'd like them. I told her ANY yarn that is $1.00 or less is a yarn I will LOVE. I think she will get me more. Woo Hoo
Now the crazy stuff... someone came into our yard in the middle of the night while we were all sleeping and set a fire to a tent and mattress we had set up in the backyard. It obviously burned fast and hard. The tent was only inches away from our garage and my sisters deck (she lives nextdoor) It could have burned up a lot of things. We don't know who did it or why, but I tell you I am a little nervous that they might try to burn other things too.
All I can do to keep sane is to knit and crochet. I have mande 18 squares for Victory Junctions Camp (a NSACAR thing) I made 4 dishcloths for some friends on a FlyLady group I talk to every day, and I started that scarf. I also want to start the monthly dishcloth KAL too. Oh so many projects and so little time.

It's time to celebrate. Adam will be released from the prison of the body cast on Monday. Yes that is just 6 days away. I can't believe how fast this healing time went.
I am so proud of my little Bubba for never losing his JOY through this. As you can see in these pictures even bed bound he managed to have fun, laugh and be happy. We can learn alot from this remarkable little boy.
Now once he is free I hope we can get him interested in potty training.
It never ends, does it? LOL
Well I have yet another project in the works. I came across this fish design on another blog, and recently joined the Yahoo group because I just had to figure these out. I LOVE them. Fast to knit, easy to do, fun to watch develop. Can't wait until I have enough to sew together and make a blanket.
My camera is old and outdated so the pictures aren;t the best, but as I knit up more I will try to photograph them better. I love how they puff up in the moddle and think it will really make an interesting blanket when sewn together.
In between the fish I have made several squares for the Victory Junctions Camp (A NASCAR charity) as well as a few more Wave squares for my mom. I know I said I was finished but she thinks she needs 6 more. Ok Mom, I have 2 done and 4 more to go. LOL.
