I'm making a baby blanket too for some day when, if, my daughter has a baby, right now I'm making some cables fingerless glaoves for myself.
Knitting and beading are my addictions.

I made some fingerless gloves for myself and I wear them while driving. I feel I have better control with my fingers free. I designed them myself - they have tiny cables across the top and just ribbing on the palm. It was fun to design them.

I knit a lot and do lots of charity knitting. I'm hoping that one of these days I can hook up with gwenlee to give her some preemie blankets to take to the hospital where she works. Preemie things work up so quickly that I can pop those things out like mad.

I've also gotten back into quilting recently and I crochet, too. Earlier this week I crocheted a preemie blanket that's really cute.

I would say that reading and needlework are probably my biggest hobbies. And I can tell you that there are certainly a lot of folks here who share my reading hobby! It's nice to find another knitter around. smile.gif

Never thought of knitting preemie stuff, I should have, my sister works in a birthing center. I did knit helmet liners for soldiers in Afghanistan.
I do volenteer work for hospice, I do reiki for the hospice patients.
You must be a fast knitter, which I'm not, I've only been knitting for about 3 years, don't know how to crochet, yet.

Well, I've been knitting since my mom taught me at age 8 so I've got a few years on you! tongue.gif

I have knitted slippers for the soldiers and used to make hats and earwarmers for them, too. One of the ladies on my knitting 4 children email group heads up a group called The Ships Project http://www.theshipsproject.com/ and I've sent things to her in the past for the soldiers overseas. Lately, I've just been into making baby stuff. It's fast and fun. And preemie blankets are only about 15 to 18 inches square.

Tell me about what you're doing at the hospice. That sounds interesting.

Well, there are 4 levels of Usui Reiki, some teach it in three, it all depends on the person and how they feel, to how long it takes them.
I took in privatley through someone, Level 1 was a day, then I waited a few months til the next level, so, in all, I probably took Usui in 1 1/2 Years, but you can take it much quicker or much slower, or just stay a the first level if you would like, all depends on you. I also took karuna Reiki after that.
A group of us get together once in awhile for reiki shares.
You can take reiki classes at continuing ed classes and night schools really reasonably now, it was QUITE pricey when I took it.

I am fighting off depression and stress by spending time on the computer. I am also listening to some Celtic music and considering a trip to Little Rock to go to teh Hospital and see about some meds for depression. Since usually the boards have been of great help and the meds I am on have been working, but I am seemingly more depressed of late and much more competitive as I note on the boards I am driven to have the lead. I am sorry if I have hurt anyone by that. But when I get under stress I find something to relieve my stress and then I put myself totally into it. I honestly enjoy the boards and each of the people I have met here. Though I would never know you if we meet on the street I care about each of you. The CelticRadio.net crew are the finest people I have ever known. Thanks to one and all for just being you.

I slept in a little today - got up an hour later than usual but managed to get to work only a half hour later than my norm. Unfortunately, when I got here I realized I had forgotten to pack my lunch! Fortunately, my dad is doing the shopping today and I had asked him to get me some soups and 100 calorie snacks which is what I normally take to work with me anyway. He will shop the sales and then drop by my office and bring me various things that I need. If it wasn't for dad's "grocery store" in his basement, I'd probably not be able to feed myself. My salary doesn't really cover much more than rent and utilities so I'm quite dependent on him - being an only child still has its perks.

Anyway, I guess I'll wait until after he brings me groceries and then I can have my soup.

On a bright note, today is payday! On a gloomy note, I was out sick for a week so it's not going to be a very "healthy" paycheck. But, I'm supposed to be getting a whopping $30 for the day I went for jury duty. Yeehaw! I think I can almost pay the water bill with that.

Geez, I need a second job - wait - I teach school for several hours a day after I finish work here, so that's really my second job. So, I guess I need a third job! Especially since the second one doesn't pay anything.

Rambling finished - back to your regularly scheduled programming. wink.gif
