My daughter has gotten her first gig!

I'm just so excited! My daughter, Cindy, just got her first gig! Her and her band partner, Andy are going to be playing at the Red House Tavern in Canton, MD on Spet.13th. I can't wait to go see her play live! She's so excited about it and I'm very proud of her for following her dreams!

Other than that exciting news, things here in the burbs have been normal (nornal for me It's been hot here in MD and humid. Yuck. The kids have been in the pool everyday and Ally has met a new friend here in the neighborhood. This is the first time since I've been living here that she has had a little girl to play with!

Well, I'm going to go and take some pics of my newest creations. I'll post again later and put my pics up.

Take care and Happy Crafting!

You'll never guess what I got today!!

I just scored BIG today! I am a freecycle nut and today it really paid off! This is my *new* 1958 Singer 403A Slant-O-Matic sewing machine! Isn't she beautiful?? I got the machine, table, and 2 drawers FULL of sewing supplies! I even got the original Singer sewing machine parts that came with it and the owners manual! I couldn't believe it when the woman who was giving it away told me that the drawers were full! She wasn't kidding! So now, this makes 5 machines for me - 3 Singers, 1 White, and 1 Brother. I'm running out of room here! lol

I am soooo excited with this machine. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.

Did I mention it was FREE!!!!!! WooHoo!

Anywho, Happy Crafting everyone!

The finishing touch to the afghan!

I finished the pillow to Cindy's afghan and wanted to post a few pics on here as promised. I think it turned out really good.It's even reversable! She loved it when I gave her the afghan and pillow the other day! Whew - it was alot of work too!

Anywho, Have a great night and Happy Crafting!

As promised - the finished afghan......

Drum roll please.........

After weeks of crocheting, I've FINALLY finished the afghan for my oldest daughter, Cindy. Now I'm working on a pillow to match and willpst that pic when it's done :)

I'm still a little off of my game because of my back, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Hopefully everyday will find me better than the day before - *crossing fingers*.

I hope everyone had a terrific 4th of July and that it was fun and safe! We've been doing alot of swimming in the pool with the kids and the grandbaby!

Anywho, I'm off to work on the pillow for Cindy. I'm trying to get it done so I can start on my next project - TBA. ;p

Have a great day everyone! Take care and Happy Crafting!!
