March,15th… Puppies….

We have been enjoying the new 5 arrivals. Leona really has as she can hold them at this size, when they get stronger and more lively she will not be able to.

  
  
  
  
It is harder to stay inside with the lovely weather we have been having,and the flowerbeds do need attention now that the yard is free of limbs , trash that blow in from who knows where..and nicely mowed.

I did do a little sewing on these blocks ,using up the fabric of Grandma’s.   

Spring time also holds the wonderful adventure of yards sales. There is one called from peaches to beaches,and it is yard sales upon yard sales for hundreds of miles along one Route,starting at Barnsville,Ga ending up in Brunswick,Ga.

Hubby and l went to some of them to see if there was anything of interest… I never would of dreamed that I would of come home with a manual machine knitting setup. A man was selling his mama stuff as she was no longer living. He wanted to be rid of this knitter,so much so ,”you can take it for $20″, were his words when he started with a price of an hundred. 

I cleaned it up ,as it is a  manual missing 60’s model of Studio knitter that had sat in the attic. Learned how to do just a simple stitch,and the machine works great… Now I Need to learn more for I’ve never knitted anything in my life, Always crocheted . I also may learn that I was crazy to even mess with such an old machine.πŸ˜³πŸ˜„ but we just might be kindred spirits for I’m a 60’s model too. Lol

  
Have a good week,and Happy St. Patrick’s day, Deb

    Oh, those puppies!! I want to snuggle them–your photos are great. Your quilt blocks look wonderful–are the star blocks done by foundation piecing? They look so perfect. And that was a good deal on the knitting machine–even if you decide not to keep it, you’ll get your $$ back.

      Glad you enjoyed the puppy photos.:) I did use foundation piecing to do the Stars. A fun block to do. I’m taking a class from crafty for the knitting machine,who knows I just might get addicted to knitting yet. Knitting ,quilting,flower gardening,and crocheting that should keep me out of trouble. πŸ˜„

      I can imagine that the jumpers were warm! I think I have a lot to learn yet before attempting to do something like that ,probably start out with a scarf. I like the star blocks best,too. The patch blocks are made out of the scraps from the star blocks.

      I know ,and now they are starting to have a personality. Lol, as long as I keep learning something new it’s fun, it’s when I try to learn then retry to learn and this happens several times that I get a little out of sorts.πŸ˜³πŸ˜„

    ahh. . . the puppies are sooo adorable. Like Kerry, I want to snuggle them. The knitting machine looks very intriguing. I’m looking forward to hearing your verdict on it in a future post.

    The puppies are so cute! My grandma has a knitting machine too. I remember the noise of it, when I was a child, as she was pulling it there and back. Jumpers were finished so fast with it.
