Hi Everyone on Friday!
I am so late with everything this week. The weather here has been dreadful. I've had to shovel the snow off the drive three times. Walked up the road and fell down twice. Wednesday I did nothing but lay on my sofa after falling all cuddled up with my Fireside Blanket. Boy, did it come in handy! I just could not get warm! Well I'm pleased to say we've now had rain, and the snow is thawing. What a week we've had. Even Mr. Twin couldn't get up our hill with his new company car and had to walk to work. I'm aching all over, probably a combination of the fall and the shovelling. So pleased it's the weekend now.
Thank you all so .....much for comments on my 'Clio Car Cozy', very nice of you all. Yes, everyone seemed to like the colours, me too. I do apologise to everyone that has sent me comments and emails, I'm trying to get through them as fast as I can. But as I say I've been behind with everything.
Last night I was looking at a book I picked up at Christmastime, in W.H. Smith. I thought you might like to see these Crocheting through the Decade pictures. They just amused me. Then at the end of the post I have posted some photos for Kate she was talking about eight tracks in one of her previous posts. Do you remember them? Mr. Twin still has his at home believe it or not in the shed. He just won't throw it away! It's all dusty Kate but you will see it. Also she was talking about records through the decade. It brought back so many memories of when I was young walking across the park with my friend wearing what we called our 'Cow bells!'. (Hippy Days!). Well here is a photo of my bell as well. I still have it here to look at and remember my younger days.
I must say at this point thank you so much for the squares which are on their way to me. I will let you know when they arrive. If anyone is new to my blog. This year I am trying to get some blankets made for the Elderly. As my Grandmother lived to the very fine age of 103 the Elderly are very dear to my heart. I have spoken about this in one of my previous posts. If you'd like to check it out you are most welcome. Thank you everyone.
Well there's a lot of Decade pictures today, I hope you'll have a smile and think about which decade you started crocheting in! I'll be most interested.
I started Crocheting in the 1970's with my friend Caroline. While we sat in the Domestic Science room waiting for our food to cook the Teacher allowed us to do our Crocheting! We made Cardigans and blankets.
What year did you start Crocheting?
How did you start Crocheting?
Did you teach yourself, or did someone show you?
Or sadly, can't you crochet yet?
Mr Twins' Eight Track player Kate! Bit Dusty, just out of the shed for you.
Here's my 'Cow Bell!' for The Garden Bell. Kate.
Oh! there's one other thing I'm in need of help with. Can anyone please tell me how to get my side bar back! My list of Blog favourites has disappeared. It's been like this all week now. That's making me late getting round everyone. Thank you!
Have a good weekend everyone, and thanks for your concern, you are all such wonderful friends to me. Chat soon x
