Here Today Gone Tomorrow...and vice versa

Where have I been you ask? Here there and everywhere. I spent all last week with my parents...I'm glad to be back home and I think they are too! I finally finished my mom's Mother's Day doily. She liked and my Grandmother liked her's as well, so I'm happy. Here they are for your viewing pleasure....

Grandma's doily--->
Mom's doily gave me hell and I gave it right back....I'm very relieved to be finished. I will say that I feel I have matured in my craft after completing these two projects. I enjoyed the challenge and my creative cursing. (Geof has been repeating more and more words that I wish he wouldn't so I've become very creative in my choice of expletives.)
Now I've moved on to dishcloths and scrubbies. They are for my bestest friend who's birthday is...let me check my calendar....HOLY SHIT!!! Her birthday is today!
I finally reaped some Freecycle rewards. I put out an APB on yarn and had one reply that came in maybe January. Finally about 2 weeks ago I was able to pick up the yarn. Nothing too "yarngasmic" (to steal Deneen's word). There was a beautiful afghan that lacks 4 rows from being complete, lots of baby yarns, a completed baby afghan (very nice), baby dresses, and a couple pattern books. The yarn is all acrylic and smells like it came from a spunky old lady's house in Florida. Don't ask me how I came up with that description. Anyhoo, I think I can find a use for it all, and I'm sure a good washing will do the trick.
I got another RAOK from the fiber RAOK ring. It was a funny little ecard from the proud owner of this blog. Thanks Gina!
Guess that's all for now. Have a good'ern!!

The doilies are awesome, I've never done one and don't know if I will.

The Freecycle thingy is okay. I had one awesome hit and several duds. Most of the stuff is crap and I hate having to drive to God knows where to find that out. Although, this week, two people contacted me about baby yarn (for my charity blankies) and aren't too far away, although it will take up an hour or two gathering it up. I think one has six new skeins of baby yarn and one has a bag of 3/4 skeins and one new cone of cotton yarn.

Anyway, glad you're all right and things seems to be going well for you guys.

Geof will repeat everything soon. For the longest time, everything Elena said had the word "Freaking" in front of it, so I had to stop. Now, she says things like horse pucky, bull pucky, etc. Dorky, but not obscene.

Take care

Your doilies are really beautiful. Hope the free yarn smells better :)
