First of all, how cute is my latest finished project???This little sweetie measures in at about 12" tall. I used a crochet hook two sizes smaller than the pattern called for because I don't want any chance of any of the stuffing escaping. Pattern is THIS one and I used Bernat Velvet yarn.
And.....the last two of the long oven mitts are finished....
Update on the phone situation (and I know you were waiting to hear, weren't you!!)....nada, but more frustration. Thanks be to Maureen who shared a link to the Better Business Bureau I have learned that I should run, not walk, away from Virgin Mobile. I stand to lose the balance I have with them but it appears it will be a cheap price to pay. Now I'm wondering what will happen when I attempt to cancel my account with them. By all reports, it appears it might be a whole 'nother battle royal brewing.
- HERE is a great project you might want to make for Christmas giving.
- I do THIS when I'm cutting felt but perhaps some of you might not be aware of the trick.
- Have a look through the galleries of THIS artist!
- Sometimes a simple pattern is the best and I think THIS fits that criteria and would make great gifts too!
Today's quote is a poem from Edgar Albert Guest....
Have You Earned Your Tomorrow
Is anybody happier because you passed his way?
Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today?
This day is almost over, and it's toiling time is through;
Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?
Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend that came along?
Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng?
Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way,
Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?
Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast,
That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said;
Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say,
You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?
