 My family loves grapefruit. So when a local store offered these over-sized wonderful tasting grapefruit, on sale 4/1.00, I decided it was time to try my hand a canning some.
It was so easy. 
Don't you just love the color?
Sure hope the grapefruit taste as good as it looks.

My Thrifted Chair

 In November of 2010 I found and blogged about this chair; I paid 3-bucks for it at the thrift store.
We spent time sanding it and then for some reason the chair was set to the side.
 Until last week when Pat decided it was time to finish this amazing chair of mine.
 And he gave it to me for Valentine's Day.
I was shocked and so very, very excited!

More Knitting

Work on my knitted hat is coming along nicely. I chose a pattern that is simply Knit-2 and Purl-2; super easy.
 As my confidence has grown I decided to dig out a knitting book that I purchased several months ago. At the time the patterns looked easy but I never bothered to give any of them a try until last week.
This is my first completed dishcloth from the book; a butterfly!
All this knitting is very exciting :o)

 For years I have known how to knit and purl but I lacked the confidence to start and finish a project; until now that is! Everything changed in January when I started helping out in a knitting class and I became inspired to start a project and actually finish the project.
I made a scarf out of wool yarns. It's not perfect and looks like a beginner made it, but that's okay by me because I am so proud of my completed scarf and have been wearing it on cold days.
With my confidence now built up I have started working on a hat using circular needles.
All this knitting has been very exciting :o)
