and a 1, and a 2 and a.....

Between laundry, dishes, and scrubbing the bathroom down (I was away for 2wks and my roomie doesn't know how to clean!!!) I've managed to start the Teddy Bear Pinafore (aka: "Bearly Bare-Ass Dress"). Well....I was about 1/3 of the way done when I ended up dropping a stitch...and it couldn't just drop off of the needle-oh no, it had to fall through to the point where I had to take it all out and start over....GRRRRRRRRR!

Make Poverty History

Hello All,

Today, I became part of an unprecedented global call to action to end poverty: Make Poverty History

Right now, there is active campaigning in over 100 countries around the three core demands: More and Better Aid, Trade Justice, and Cancel the Debt. In Canada, we're also campaigning to End Child Poverty in Canada .

You've just got to be a part of this campaign.

Go to http://www.makepovertyhistory.ca and sign on to the campaign yourself.

There is no time to lose. It doesn't matter who or where you are, your voice is critical to the success of this campaign. This is a rare chance to join me and millions of others across the planet to once and for all make poverty history.

What are you waiting for? Join me and click in!

What you can do right now:

* Sign on to the campaign
* Tell federal MPs other politicians to commit to a timeline for 0.7%
* Click others into action - forward this message to your networks

"If everyone who wants to see an end to poverty, hunger and suffering speaks out, then the noise will be deafening. Politicians will have to listen."

The Latest...

Well....It feels like I've been busy but really, I haven't been. It being the summer, I've been going away to visit family & friends, golfing, going to the beach and reading. BUT, I've also being playing with the look of my blog here, and trying to fix up my website, that I created in memory of my Nana. I'm also venturing into the fabulous world of beading & jewelry. I know, I have a lot of interests on the go...

I miss having needles in my hand, and being that I'm in desperate need for new dishcloth's, I went to my favorite site to get some fun patterns to whip up some new ones. You can visit this site here: Dishcloth Boutique There you will find many wonderful things and they also have a Message board, where everyone is very helpful. The pattern I'm going to start on is on Page 4 in the Knitting patterns section, and its called "King Charles Brocade - 2". I really like the pattern and it should knit up rather nicely.

There's also this cute little pinafore pattern that I found through the message board.
Its made for a teddy bear and I know a little girl who would love to have it for her favorite friend so I'm going to also get to work on that. You can find the pattern for this on Vick Designs Just scroll down until you see the cute bear. The pattern itself is called "Bearly Bare-Ass Dress" (not so crazy about the name...). Vicki has a lot of wonderful designs on her pages as well.

Well, I'm not getting anything done sitting here so I must go and print off those patterns so I can get started on them.
