I have just signed up for "Pay It Forward" on sounds like alot of fun Here's how the program works:1. You must promise to send some type of handmade gift to the first3 people who leave a comment on your blog requesting to join thisPIF exchange.2.

Then post it to yours so you can return the favor.3.

it's here. spring!!!!!

Finaly the weather is turning spring like. sun and warmth, I even saw some flowers at the side of the road this weekend. I love this time of year.

Many things going on right now mostly Girl Scout realted. final few troop meetings, getting ready for our ceremony, I think i finaly have all the plans laid out. Invites will go in the mail this week. I have the park booked and the pavilion. I have to get all the candles and decorations yet but still have a while to go. Some thoughts buzzing around about table centers but nothing definate yet. will work on that.

May 3rd the day before our ceremony is going to be fun i think. Me, Dawn and Mickey are traveling to Bloomsburg for the anual meeting. That should not take too long and then we get to spend the day looking at all the booths and vendors taht are attending. we are taking Caitlin and Brittany. Should be good.

Speaking of my daughter Caitlin, she did a fantastic job a few weeks ago, wow has it really been that long since my last post. Caitlin and myself along with 25 other girl scouts and thier mom took part in a "Locks of Love" donation 20.13 feet of hair was doanted and all the girls had a blast. many tears were shed of course, but many memories were made. Every one of the girls who left The Vineyard Scene salon in Tannersville had a fantastic haircut and a smile all worth it. Caitlin was really not sure she liked it but went ahead and took part anyway and now she loves her new do!

As for knitting I have 2 really nice projects on thr go a beautiful sweater for Charlotte, a Crystal palace Bunny hop pattern. I love this yarn so soft. The border is pale green and the bulk of the sweater is cream. pictures to follow later.
i also have a bolero jacket on the needles just started for Charlotte. Pale pink with a plae lavender trim, really pretty but just started so nothing to show yet.
I did also buy some needles to start on a new pair of socks bought the yarn a while ago and really want to have a go at knitting with 2 needles. I have done it where you make 2 at a time socks but did not love the results found it left big holes where the heel was turned but I have been told this does not happen when you do just one on two needles. we shall see.
