MS Walk - Seattle, WA

It is time for the MS Walk again, April 3rd in Seattle, keep your fingers crossed that there won't be rain. Our daughter and I will be walking the four miles from the University of Washington to Gas Works Park and back again this year.

I would appreciate any donations, nothing is too small, my grandmother said if everyone donated a dollar that would be a lot of money.

If anyone would like to help by donating in my name please click on the link on the top right.

Thank you for your support.

Sewing & Stitchery Expo - Puyallup, WA

Just thought I would share some of the fun we had at the Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington last week-end. We started with two cousins and by Saturday night there were eight of us having dinner at Black Angus.

This is a picture of five of us with the hats that we planned to make at 2010 Sewing Expo. We all used the same knitting pattern, I knitting mine, one cousin knitted three and one, it would be best to see the next picture . . . . . we called her the UFO, we have all been there . . . . .

Since she didn't finish her hat we rolled the rest of the yarn into a ball and put her knitting needles into the ball. I was thinking that we need to put a poll on the back - finish or not finish. I don't think she will finish it for next year either, but she will have to buy more knitting needles, everyone loved the UFO.

We all decorated our own hats with things like, flowers, feathers, buttons, ribbons, etc. Our youngest cousin passed away in January, so we added a button in his memory and a shamrock for our Grandmother, her birthday was on March 17th. There will be more added for next year and who knows what else we will do next year.

The hats were a huge hit, many people just smiled as we walked past, but others stopped to ask questions or tell us how much they liked our hats. It was so easy to keep track of each other, all we had to do was ask someone if they had seen a pink hat and they would say yes and tell us which direction the hat went. Even people in cars waved at us.

Anyway we had a great week-end - lots of laughs, eating, talking, shopping and catching up.

If there is anyway you can make a trip to Puyallup next year for Sewing & Stitchery Expo the dates will be March 1, 2, 3 & 4, 2012. Just look for the pink hats!

Hope these pictures made you laugh!
