Mason Dixon dish cloth

First of all, sorry about the picture. Not the best, camera needs batteries so I used the scanner. Anyway, I think I'm keeping this one. I don't have any of these, I've given them all away, so I may keep this or not. Not sure yet.

I went back to the doctor's again. I'm on three new prescriptions so perhaps soon I will feel normal again.

I'm currently working on a felted bag for myself and really wanted it done for this weekend, but it's not going to happen. That's okay, I just started it Saturday anyway. So, I'm sure I'll have it done by the following weekend.

I received an MP3 player from my daughter and her boyfriend. They new I wanted one and I said I was going to ask for one for Mother's Day and they decided to surprise me. I love it! It is the neatest little gadget. It is made by Creative, it's a Zen. It's so cute, it's white and orange and I can put up to 500 songs and pictures on it. Too cool! I love music and the kids usually have the television occupied when I'm knitting so now I can listen to music while they watch tv and I knit.

The secret pal 9 is ending in a few weeks. I have enjoyed it so much! It's been fun shopping for someone and getting to know people. I'm not sure if I will sign up for SP10 or not. I might, depending on finances.

I guess that's it for now. I need to go take my medicine and get more chores done. Unfortunately, the medicine makes me dizzy and drowsy. So chores will have to come first. I fell asleep knittng yesterday afternoon. It was a good thing my husband Bill had the day off.

Oh I forgot to mention! We went to a play with our church family and it was amazing. It was in Providence, RI and Bill and I had never seen a play before. It was called "Wicked" and if you have seen it you know that you will never watch the Wizard of OZ and think of the witch in the same way. If you haven't seen it, you really should. It was wonderful!

Okay, now I better go!

Forgive me for bragging

But I made my mother-in-law a felted purse for Christmas and it's my favorite so far. I wanted to keep it, LOL! It was done in Mauch Chunky and a red mohair. I made I-cord handles and mixed in a little bit of Patons Glitterspun in the top of the bag and the handles. The grey yarn is by Galway. I am so happy with the way it came out! I ended up completeing 13 Christmas gifts and was very pleased with that. Not counting some miscellaneous wash clothes. I hope all that received a knitted gift was pleased. My total completed projects for 2006 is 77! That does include EVERYTHING! I'm hoping to reach 100 for 2007, but I have some big projects planned so we will have to see.

A question for my secret pal. I haven't heard from you in a while via e-mail. I'm hoping your not ill. Drop me a note when you get time. Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you. I know your very good about reading my blog. Hope all is well!
