YOP Week #27


I survived another birthday!  Yay!  I made it to 71 yesterday.  At my age, you're never sure how much longer you have.  No matter what your age you don't know but at my age, you have more time to think about it! LOL!  It was a beautiful day here; sunny and about 47 so I took a walk.  I've been trying to get back to walking and boy am I in bad shape!  I used to walk 3-4 miles with the girls and now I'm lucky to make it around the block.  Hopefully, I will get myself back in shape.  I did some sewing and some online shopping and then went uptown and bought some butter pecan ice cream....my favorite!  I try not to eat much dairy but on holidays I eat what I want.
For projects this week it was nice to be done with the holidays and get back to a normal schedule although I still don't know what day it is! LOL!
I'm still working on the baby blanket and it is taking forever!  I love the fabric but it makes my hand cramp up after about 1 row and I have to put it down for awhile.
So then I pick up my 2019 Christmas socks.............self-striping yarn is so much fun!
I also worked on an experimental project I have been wanting to do for a long time now.  I have all kinds of towels that are anywhere from 20 to 40 years old with no holes in them but the edges are all ragged.  I'm too cheap to throw them out as they are perfectly usable they just look raggedy.  So, I thought I would take a hand towel and bind it like I do the quilts............I have yet to hand sew the other side but so far so good!
 I have many more towels to do but I think it will save my towels and they will look even prettier!  This particular towel is over 40 years old!  They don't make things to last like that anymore.
 I also worked on my Saturday Stars and Stripes cross stitch.........I'm almost done..finish this white row and one more row of the red and it's a 'finish'!
My daughter and her family pulled out all the stops for my birthday and sent me a big box of presents!  My grandsons made me a card and they also used their own allowances to buy me some presents!  The strawberry is from Grayson and when you uncinch it, it is a tote bag!  I love it!  Sam bought me some Ginger Peach wax melts from McCalls which is a family favorite!  That smell is the best.  My grandsons are the most thoughtful and giving boys!  Of course, I'm not prejudiced or anything! LOL!
 Grayson also gave me this cute little 'squishy'............thank you boys! 
They gave this beautiful Woolrich sweater..............right up my alley!  Amy knows me so well!
I also got an orange rain jacket with a hood from Columbia that I needed!  My old Columbia is a bit 'snug'  on me....I forgot to take a picture of it..........I love me some Biscoff cookies and Apple Pickin' Goat milk lotion, a darling chicken bag and 'Grandma's' poison ivy soap....I get into poison ivy every year it seems.
I also received some stickers and some party supplies some bacon candy and a lovely card with a gorgeous horse on it............it was truly the most birthday presents I have ever gotten in my life!  They are awfully good to me!
I have acquisitions but they are not here yet and may not be here next week even.  What is up with shipping?  It costs more and takes longer!  But I did finally order supplies for punch needle which I have wanted for over a year now so I bit the bullet.  I also had to order a few XS supplies and some books from Thrift books, of course!
I think there is football this afternoon and it is going to be in the 60's so there will definitely be another walk.  I hope you had a wonderful Holiday season and Happy New Year!!!
Happy Trails!!!

  7. What a lovely gift package of goodies you received, so many lovely items and obviously thought put in to every item. I’ve seen on Gilliangladrag website and her Instagram the punch needle stuff and things she’s made. One day I’d like to have a go. A brilliant idea for your towels. I tend to keep them for year, they go from human towels to dog towels, then become dyeing my hair towels and felting/dyeing fibre towels. Some where from my mum’s old towels she gave me when I moved out 26 years ago.

    1. I checked out Gilliangladrag and what gorgeous stuff she makes! I love her style and colors. Thank you for telling me about her! Yes, my daughter is the best shopper and she shops all year long and gets the best deals. I tell her she should be a professional shopper!

  8. Hi Sam! You made it lol! ;) You're so funny.
    That sweater is really pretty, you got some nice gifts and you have great projects ahead! Hurrah for ice cream!!! :) I kind of know what you mean about feeling out of shape. Since I had that tooth issue back in the fall, I haven't really been very active and I'm not taking Charlie out every morning for a walk and SHE IS TAKING ME TO SCHOOL physically lol...A little each day!!

    1. BTW...I sent you something for Christmas and I even took it to the post office and they put the postage on it and then...............it came back! So, I'll be sending it again soon...so sorry! If the post office doesn't know how much than who does? Crazy!
      Yes, I can only make it around the block which takes about 10 minutes and I used to walk for 45! As soon as the block becomes easy I'll up the distance but so far it's not! LOL!

    2. Oh I can't wait to see what you sent! :) That's very thoughtful! I guess it all depends if you have a disgruntled post office worker at the desk or not lol...

  9. What fun and sweet gifts you've gotten, Sam. A belated Happy Birthday to you! That's pretty clever about finishing off the edges of your towels. I know what you mean about towels not lasting as long as they used to. I'm a big towel washer - like I use it once and it get's thrown in the laundry basket. But still. We have towels from our wedding for 20-25 years. I finally began replacing them over the last couple of decades and I'm finding very few have that kind of staying power anymore. I'm currently using a few wedding towels that have lost their bindings to wrap my hair in after I shower. I keep them separate from the big towels because they're smaller - and I don't want to find myself dripping wet after a shower with just one of those to dry of with. Okay... that has happened more than a few times. lol But still, I try to keep them separate.

    1. Have you noticed how much smaller bath towels are now? It's amazing how you pay more and get less. Bath sheets are closer to what the old bath towels used to be size wise.

  11. It sounds like you had a wonderful birthday. I am amazed at all of the gifts from your daughter and family. It's obvious that they put a lot of thought into each of them, knowing you well and what you would like.
    I need to get out and walk more too. This has been a hard winter for me to exercise so far between my heart and my back but I know I would feel better with more walking. Unfortunately, because of ice this time of year it has to be at the mall and I detest the mall. :-)
    Anyway, I'm so glad you had a great day and felt love from all.
    Blessings and love,
    Betsy

    1. Thank you, Betsy. We have no malls here except 2 hours away. I would love to go to one for a change. There is not shopping here at all which is probably a good thing! I don't spend as much but then there is the internet~ LOL~

  12. Glad to hear you were spoiled for your birthday. You received lots of lovely, useful gifts. Good job on making those towels continue to work for you. People these days just seem to throw out so much without taking the time to give it a second life. You've got some nice craft projects going there. Happy walking!

  16. You bday gifts were smashing. Your family really knows you and what makes you happy. What a marvelous way to keep your towels on service longer. A 40 year old towel is a miracle these days. I must agree with you on self stripping yarn. It does keep the knit much more interesting.

  17. You must be feeling pretty spoiled after having such a wonderful birthday! :~) Your crochet on the blanket is really nice, but it's the sock that is fascinating me! I love those stripes! Aren't these warmish January days just the best; kind of hard to stay inside, I think!

  18. I am feeling spoiled but it's good to get back to the normal routine. The self-striping yarn is so much fun. You want to keep knitting to see what the next color is and what it will look like.
    Yes, I am loving the weather...not too hot, not too cold...just right for walking and working outside!

  19. After 5 years of relationship with my boyfriend, he suddenly changed and stopped contacting me regularly. He offered to apologize for not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my text messages and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started to meet him with different girl friends, but each time he said that he loved me and that he needed time to think about our relationship. But after I contacted (padmanlovespell@yahoo.com), Dr. Padman of the temple of spells cast a love spell and after one day my boyfriend started to contact me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me. than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We finally got married and have now been happily married for 2 years with a son. Since Dr. Padman of padmanlovespell@yahoo.com helped me, my partner is very stable, loyal and closer to me than before

  22. After being in relationship with him for seven years, he broke up with me. I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain. I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him and I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster DR MAMUDU that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it. I mailed the spell caster and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before two days that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me and I was so surprised so I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drmamudu47@gmail. com or his WhatsApp/Viber him on: +2348143284524
