Monday: Puerto Rican rice and habichuelas for dinner. I was in heaven. I even had enough to take to school for lunch the next day. Sabrosisimo!!!!
Saturday:I finished this scarf that I saw on Libby's blog and fell in love with stitch and yarn. She clued me in to where I could find both!!
I still love it. I added fringe and hope to debut it next week at school LOL.
Last night I was also inspired to try out a new recipe that has tweaked my curiosity. Have you ever seen those pumpkin rolls with cream cheese filling? Well, Walmart has them for $3.50 a piece. I found the recipe on the back of a can of Libby's pumpkin can.
Last but not least, I am still working on my Crochet by Numbers afghan for my in-laws. I have frogged it twice, because it has to be perfect. I am about a third of the way done, soon I'll have a pic of progress.
I am thankful for my blogging buddies and have Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you are where you want to be and who you want to be with on turkey day. I will be with my kids.....ahhhhhh!

Listening to the band "Kansas" before the race(Ironic, huh?) They were awesome. Carry on my wayward son......
This is an afghan square I tried. It has a really cute flower in the middle. It cam out of an old Crochet Today magazine...maybe last spring?
My nephew is getting married in December and I started their gift. It's called "Wedding Afghan" and its in the fall issue of Crochet World. It's moving fast and I really think it'll be pretty. I was thinking white would go anywhere; thrown over a chair or corner of a bed.
Here is the pattern for the wedding afghan and the other is the pattern I sent off to Todd Paschall(Crochet by Numbers).
It is going to be for my in-laws, who are soooo hard to buy for and would much rather(or so they tell me...LOL) have something made by me. They are also crazy over their little dog, so I thought....why not? Wish me luck!!!! Below is the training pattern that you can get at Todd's website, so I finished my training and I should be ready to go. I'll buy yarn this weekend.
Miscellaneous Halloween ami ahead......(I told you I was a plethora......)
I packaged these ami's up for gifts.
Here's hoping your hooks are never still.......

Here is a bulletin board I created for outside of my clase. Notice Sponge Bob is bilingual; shouting "Me gusta espanol!" LOL
P.S. DH and I saw "The Informant" starring Matt Damon. It was a bewildering, strange, true story; very enjoyable!
P.S.S The margaritas at T.G.I. Fridays were especially good too! LOL

I finished my Drop Stitch scarf from Ravalry. Since this was my LYS yarn and 100% wool, I did have to block it. I am very pleased with how this came out and plan on wearing it as soon as the weather turns a tad bit cooler.
I ate my tomatoe(the thing I've ever grown and eaten!!!) It was delicious. I've got 5 more on the vine, let's hope they turn before the first frost. LOL

My 18 year old Austen appears to be survivng the first few weeks of university life. He has made it to all his classes and seems to be getting the hng of being on his own. I posted a pic of me presenting him with his afghan on my last post. He was thrilled with it. I got a picture of their dorm room and it was draped over a chair in plain view. High praise from a teenager!!! The cutest remark about it came from his roomate who exclaimed in disbelief; "You made that? From nothing?" We all had a good chuckle and I then explained to him how I did it. Austen is used to seeing me create things, but his roomate had never seen a homemade item.
Skylar and Austen
I haven't really tackled any big projects lately. I've been planning a few, day-dreaming about a few, but nothing has got my up on my hooks and needles yet.
I noticed Christina's post about her tomatoes and here's a pic of mine. Our plant has been battered, bruised, and almost died when it was a wee one, but here it is with 6 tomatoes in the wings. I hope they can get ripe before the first frost. LOL
I did treat myself to 2 skeins of LYS yarn. We have a shop near here that's not great, but it'll do when I need a fix of the "good stuff". It's a wool with a speckles of color through it. Here is the scarf I'm making from it. I got the pattern over at Ravalry, its called Drop Stitch scarf.
Hello to all and it's good to be back!!
