Cute little dress...

For the store wall...
I haven't added the buttons yet, but have some cute ones with a rabbit on them. I left the arms in the butterfly mode rather than making them longer as I made a smaller version...this is made from the Lion Brand Baby Soft I carry at the store. I love how the colors match up with the variegated so nicely...and the drape!

My friend Bev told me about this pattern for Sophies Cardigan so I just had to try my hand at it.  Here is the link to the pattern.  Her version is so much prettier than mine!
So light and dainty.  Pattern is pretty easy, so give it a try!

Just have to share....good for out loud belly laughs!
Our Yearly Dementia Test-- only 4 questions 
Our Yearly Dementia Test 

It's that time of year for us to take our annual senior citizen test.
Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it! 
Below is a very private way to gauge how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty. 
Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. 
The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer. 
OK, relax, clear your mind and begin. 

1. What do you put in a toaster? 

Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else.. 
Try not to hurt yourself. 
If you said, bread, go to Question 2. 

2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink? 

Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Auto World. 
However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3. 

3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from? 

Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these??? If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4. 

4. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to 
Milford Haven in Wales . In London , 17 people get on the bus.
In Reading , 6 people get off the bus and 9people get on.
In Swindon , 2 people get off and 4 get on.
In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on.
In Swansea , 3 people get off and 5 people get on.
In Carmathen, 6 people get off and 3 get on.
You then arrive at Milford Haven .. 

Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver? 

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! 
Don't you remember your own age? 
It was YOU driving the bus!! 

If you pass this along to your friends, pray they do better than you.

PS:  95% of people fail most of the questions!!-

I hope my friend Nancy is not looking....I am going to mail this off tomorrow.  I had a difficult few weeks here and haven't managed to do as I would say each and every time.  But, in order to make ME feel better I thought I'd post it.

This is Muno - and yet I don't know who Muno is! Must be part of a Saturday cartoon gang - I'm way past that age now, and no grandkids around. :o(

It's FREE!  I did the eye a little differently so hope it is okay.  Will make two more versions for the granddaughters.  

Hope this finds you healthy, wealthy and wise....and without mud and water in YOUR basement.  At least I get to have new carpeting.

Hugs to all!
