I just had to pop in and show you the yarn that I bought with fellow blogger Teresa's generous gift. When I got to Michaels, their Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn was on sale so look how much I was able to snag!
The first two pictures are of smaller groups of the yarn and the third is it all together. I also had a 40% off coupon for Hobby Lobby, so I bought a skein of their "I Love This Yarn" for just over $2.00. That's it in the back on the left in the third picture. I think I got some good bargains today. Now I need to get my needles flying. Although my goal is 100 pair by the end of October, I know that if I don't get them all done by then the need will be ongoing all winter so I'll just keep plugging away at it.
It's so much fun to make things for other people. Especially when you know it's very needed by them. I want to thank all of you for your kind comments and your prayers for this project. I appreciate them all. And a special thank you to Teresa and Dayle and my friend Lori who also donated a huge box of baby wipes that Lindsay says' they use in the classroom all the time.
Could I ask you to pray for my Hubby Dennis? He got stung by a bee on Wednesday evening on the back of his hand and it's really swollen and hot. The doctor says he needs to see him this afternoon because apparently the bee's are very vicious this year and some of them are what they call "dirty bee's" if they've been around garbage and such. Then they have to give antibiotics and cortisone shots. He has been stung several times this year, (as has everyone we know, they are so bad.) I've never seen anything like this year. They're very aggressive. Hubby has NEVER had a reaction to a sting like this before. I'm praying it's an easy fix for him.
Have a lovely weekend my friends and remember to smile at someone. Maybe even give someone a hug. You'll love it too!
