Well I know it has been a while. I have not even one good excuse for my not being here. I have been busy with knitting and crochet projects for the grandchildren , donations and just for me .
SO.......... I awoke yesterday morning to a bit of an ice storm coming to my neck of the woods. Now I live in South Carolina, as you know. We have very mild winters here............ usually. This past couple days though mother nature had plans of her own I guess. I was the lucky recipient of this yesterday and the cold temps were crazy.
So I have been working on knitting projects for donations , family and friends and it seems that all of the sudden (I suppose that winter has a hand in this ) I have people wanting to order my knitted fingerless mitts . I love to knit these as they are so easy and quick to make ..
Also I have had a couple orders for my knitted slippers , so wonderful on a cold winters night to keep those toes toasty. I need to keep those needles going non stop as my yarn stash grew from just a couple of very small totes to a large tote and a rainbow of colors. I was a very lucky recipient of a donation and I felt very blessed to receive it. Since my husband is still on disability and I am not able to work as I am ab out 50% legally blind the one thing I LOVE to do is knit and crochet and try to make anything I can from scratch rather then to buy because money is very short here. I also love to knit items to donate to charity such as mittens and scarfs for the homeless shelters. I truly enjoy this anytime of the year and I know it is much appreciated.
As for those grand chldren ...... they are growing by leaps and bounds . My littlest angel Alyssa is getting so big and is just about one step away from crawl. She is the happiest , easygoing little angel , always a little ray of sunshine.
Then there is my son in the army. He will be done and out of the army in May and he and his family will come home to South Carolina to live finally. It has been way too many years since he and his family have been home and I can not wait to see them again and to spend time with and watch my grandson Xavier Lee grow. He will be 4 this August and I can not wait to see him again.
So that is what I have been up too as of lately. I hope that you all are doing well and staying warm this winter. Me I am doing very well and yes I am staying warm and just busily knitting down this stash of yarn. As much as I LOVE to knit and crochet......... it makes me a bit sad as I know that when it is gone I will have no more yarn to play with , but until then I will continue to make those mittens and scarfs to donate and enjoy every minute of it too! See you soon. take care and be kind to one another !!
Welcome to my little farm in the city.
This is a little blog about my life here on my little farm in the city. I am a wife, a mom, a grandma to 6 beautiful grandchildren. I live in a very small Mayberry like town in South Carolina . We live on the banks of a small river in the woods. I raise chickens and this year I really plan to try my hand at a small garden so that I can use the products for canning this year. It will be a venture since all we have is this lovely red clay that is hard as a brick, but I have high hopes. I am an avid knitter and crocheter and I love to work on new patterns that I find. You will probably find much of my work here as I finish it. Well thanks for stopping bye and please stop in often and stay as long as you like. Trudy
