Today Southern California had a major earthquake, it was a 5.4. I was at the computer when the first jolt was felt, and then we had a rocking motion. The first thing I did was get the dogs collars and leashes on so they wouldn't run out the doggie door. Then I shut down the computer. I had a bunch of VCR tapes fall out of the cabinet and had pictures fall off the walls. We have had 27 aftershocks so far and they will probably continue. The phone and cell phones were out for a while, in fact the cells are still down. I have been through many earthquakes and this was a bad one. Hope this is over for now.

Christmas in July

I have been busy working on Christmas things for gifts and also have an order for 6 sets of the Citrus Slices Scrubbies. They are keeping me busy in the evenings. If you scroll way down on the page, you can see what they look like. They are both knitted and crocheted. I also want to make more of the cookies for gifts.

It has been so hot here that the knitting and crocheting is only done in the evenings. Can't even think of working on anything in this heat.

My Computer has been sick

My computer was sick for the past week and is feeling better now. I really don't know what the problem was but all of a sudden it is working again. Maybe it needed a weeks vacation. I went through computer withdrawel. It was horrible. I didn't realize how addicted I am to it.

Some more cookies

How about some chocolate and vanilla wafers?

My Third Treasury

I made the Treasury in Etsy for the third time. What an honor that is. These are barrettes made on plastic canvas.

Crocheted Cookies

Don't they look real? They are sure fun to make. I have had friends go to take one then they realize they are not real, but they do have a lot of fiber in them. :)

July 4,2008

We had a fun time on the fourth. My whole family was here and also some friends. We had a great barbecue, the cook was my son. The food was wonderful and the evening was spent on the front lawn watching and shooting fireworks. We only had the safe and sane ones which are allowed in my city. The kids all had a good time. The dogs were in the house and they tolerated the noise with only a little shaking.
