Yesterday we again went to help my Great Aunt with Granny’s house. This time it was kind of different. It was just my Aunt and my parents and me. There was more story telling and chatting. After making a run to the place to donate stuff, we all went out to eat where we continued to chat it up.
We came home with a few extra treasure in the form of Yarn, patterns, cookbooks and I got my treasured plate that my Granny made back in 1956. After we got done there Dad and I headed out to Marshall’s house to go rope. We got home to end the day as every other day around here. Chores, dinner, shower and bed.
This morning it started out very nice. Then as we worked the wind picked up. However, after chores Dad and I got on the roof of the new barn and fixed it. Come to find out we didn’t need the new piece of skylight we just had to pop the old one down in place and put in a few more screws. That sounds easy but when you are scared of heights that 10 foot wall at the lowest spot is still way to high.
(EDIT: My pictures didn’t show up I will try again …)
After that I took time to band Magnolia’s tail and tag her. We wouldn’t want her getting mixed up with any other lambs and not know who her Momma is … would we … LOL. As for now I am heading to Marshall’s again to get in a bit more roping.
There is one thing that I want to blog about though. That is that we are going to have a Craft along with Cutseypu Creations. I say craft along because now only does she crochet she makes cards and other things. Anyway, together we are going to have a Craft along. It is called the “Beat the Winter Blues with something new to you”. You have up to 4 chances to win. Twice with her and twice with us. Each of us will be giving a prize pack away. The whole thing is based on you doing a new craft to you. However, that can be a new technique, a new yarn, a different kind of needles … anything that has something that is new to you.
To enter in her give away she asks that you post in her Ravelry thread and you have to be a member of her group. To enter our give away it is the same as always. We will take messages on Plurk, facebook, youtube, and entries in the Ravelry thread. However, if you enter on the thread you have to be a member of our group. If you enter on Facebook you have to at least follow the farm page and on Youtube you have to be subscribed to the channel to win. You get the idea!! LOL
So this CAL (Craft along) will take place from Feb 1 to Feb 29th. To get your bonus entry if your new to you craft has something blue in it or on it or whatever, You will automatically be entered twice. You can use the same item for both entries. For example: a Knitter might make a blue crocheted wash cloth. They can post it in our thread and her thread, join both groups and that will be 4 total entries.
If you have any questions about this CAL please let us know … there might be something we over looked by accident or just haven’t thought of. Remember tomorrow is the go day so think Blue (my favorite color) and think of trying something new!!!
