Friday again......I love Fridays!
This week has gone by pretty quick. I am still working on the dress for Anistyn....the baby shower is tomorrow! I think I will be up late tonight and early in the morning to finish it up. I really want to give it to Terrayne tomorrow at the shower.
I had planned on doing a row of the pink and a row of the turqua a few rows before the bottom of the skirt and then finish off with the white. BUT...I tried that last night and the difference in the yarn did not look right so I decided to put the pink and turqua at the bottom of the skirt. The white is sport weight and the pink and turqua is medium. I have 3 more rows of white and then the two colored rows. I've also decided to not go around the neck or armholes with color either. I'm thinking I will make a flower and attach it to either the waist or chest. That could change too. :o) But here is where I'm at now.
Sorry for the rant yesterday......I guess I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and it didn't take much to set me off. I really don't even want to think about it.....it's done and gone.
One last thing before I leave you to get on with your Friday and weekend........on the local news this week was a trucking company that was donating an empty trailer and the fuel to take donations over to tornado damaged places in Alabama, mainly Tuscaloosa. People there are needing donations of all kinds. I have 3 boxes put together to donate and will go through my closets this weekend for more to send. The trailer that left yesterday was full and it was such a success that they are going to do it again next week. My stuff will be included in that trailer. I am going to rally my co-workers here and see if I can't get more for the donation trailer. I feel good giving stuff that I don't need to people who do need.......desperately. I applaud the trucking company for their generosity to get the donations over there. As we all know fuel is not cheap these days, diesel is even more expensive. Without them we wouldn't be able to give where giving is needed at this time of devastation. I hope that my little bit will help someone and lift their spirits and let them know that there are people out there who care about them. I just couldn't imagine being them.
I hope your weekend is full of rays of sunshine to sustain you through any dark that might rear it's ugly head. Much love.
