Today's Events

It was one of those days like so many others around here. I went to that place "Dewitt's " that I had mentioned yesterday. What was suppose to be $650 turned out to be $775.25. The owner found anyway to jack up the scooter prices on me. I am tired of doing business with people like him. He wanted to put a lein on my car just so I could get my plates for the year. What a rip off!. Well he is paid off and all the titles are in my possesion now.
On another note. Tomorrow my car is being picked up and the garage will be putting in the new engine. They found me one with 50,000 miles on it. That is wonderful! 10 days and I should have my car back. I will be in a rental for a while. Though I am pondering the rental.
I did see the doctor today and was told I have strained the abdominal wall muscle and also the groin muscle. Makes for painful movement. I won a raffle and another contest and look forward to the prizes. I love little goodies in the mail.
Oh while I am thinking about it. I have a bunch of baby yarn that I would like to sell. Pictures will be posted soon of the yarn.
Anyhow with all that I am off. .... toodles

Income tax time has rolled in for us. Time to play catch up with the bills and clean out some of the debts that are hindering our daily lives. My scooter for instance, bought from Dewitt's in Anderson. I would not recommend shopping there. I gave the title to my car to the owner as collateral and somehow the bill keeps getting higher and higher. Now he mentions a lein on the car when he is paid monthly. That is a bill that will be paid outright to get him off my back.
My broken car will be fixed hopefully in the next couple weeks. And as for me... I am broken again. Moving furniture by myself, I possibly have 2 new tears (hernia's ). I see the surgeon tomorrow at 1 to find out what is going on. I know one burns and the other is constantly hurting me. We shall see and hopefully he will schedule a time to fix me up. I do hate being broken.

Other then these few things happening. Oh and my conquest of the ripple afghan. I did it and am still doing it. Maybe a month left of crocheting to get it finished.
With this said I shall say good night for now.

Tapete de Coarao Pattern

I thought you might like to try something different. I made this with 4/4 cotton and it came out really nice. You can use a heavier yarn and make it a rug. I personally use an H or I hook for items like this. Hope you like it.

Yep Finally. I can wish my self a Happy Birthday!!

I asked for another birthday wish and it has been fulfilled. There is a yarn I love called 4.5/3 cotton. I found it and was given the ok to purchase cones. I got a couple 8 pounders. WOW that is a lot of crocheting for me. But it makes for the best Doilies and Kitchen items as has a neat texture to it. I LOVE THIS YARN. ... now I need to wait for it to be shipped.. hmph..But I am happy happy so that's all that matters.

2 Days till My Birthday.....

What do I want for my birthday? I am I guess not like most people. I had asked for a shopping spree to a store called Value World. For those of you who do not know this store it is a awesome second hand (Thrift ) store. We have 4 in Indianapolis and I got to shop at them all. Of course I had half off coupons so I spent little and got a lot!
I shopped for myself and my entire family. Even got a large basket of hooks, needles , thread and some yarn .. oh and a couple leaflets.
Joe has offered to bake me a special cake that is delicious and low in sugar. So I wont miss the sweetness of sugar and still get chocolate. Yummy!!
While my birthday is on the 7th we wont be celebrating till this coming weekend. This way we are all home . During the week the family schedule is a mess and it is always difficult to get the entire family at the dinner table at one time.
In the mean time, I am crocheting a doily that I found online from a Brazilian magazine. I will post when it is finished . I am also pondering another afghan but yet to find one that catches my attention. In the mean time I do know a future project is a floor mat from another Portuguese magazine. I love their patterns and wish I could purchase them for my collection. Not to mention the yarns (cotton blends ) they use. Ah a birthday wish...... yarn.... I can wish can't I
I do hope everyone has a great beginning for the New Year to come.
Toodles ,

New Years Arrived (whew)

Well I made it through another year and boy it was a super busy 2008 for myself and family. Christmas was decent and everyone around here was happy. If they weren't for a change they didn't say anything. So all was good.
Since the begining of the New Year I have been back again crocheting. It seems like I actually do this on a daily basis.
Here are just a couple of the items that I have made. and believe me there is more to come.
