ChemoAngels Patient is Graduating

My ChemoAngels patient has finished her chemotherapy and is graduating from the program. I am so happy for her! I am sending her a "graduation" present of a cute pink dishcloth and a composition book that I turned into a journal. I hope she likes them and that she lives a long and healthy life!

January Exchange Received

I received this awesome dishcloth in the January exchange. I absolutely love lime green, and I also love the fact that the year is on this cloth. What a clever idea!

24 Dishcloth Challenge for 2008

I belong to an awesome online knitting group called Monthly Dishcloths. We have two KALs (knit-a-longs) each month. We are starting a challenge to do all 24 dishcloths this year. I just finished the first one, which just happened to be my now *infamous* football dishcloth. I did this one in orange for a swap I am in for another group.

Lovely as a Tree Christmas

This beautiful card was made by my friend Suezette. It looks so much prettier in real life because she used glitter on the trees. Thanks, Suezette! ;)

Simply Circles Birthday

I belong to an online community of rubber stampers at Split Coast Stampers. They post a lot of stamping challenges, which I like because it helps my creativity.

I recently combined two challenges to make this card:

The first challenge is called Featured Stamper. It involves looking at another member's gallery and choosing a card to copy. I chose FS42 (TexasGranny) and loved the use of circles on this card. I then chose a color challenge (CC143) to decide the colors I would use for the paper and ink. The colors are Summer Sun, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive. I love how it turned out!

Thanks Again, Monkey!

My online friend, Monkey, sent me a goody box this week with some yarn, needles, a knitting book, and a couple of cute dishcloths. Thanks, Monkey, you are such a sweetie!

DW Cloth in Sagebrush

This awesome DW dishcloth was created with Lion Brand cotton yarn in a colorway called Sagebrush. I just love how these colors work together in this cloth. ;)
