New Hobbies & Magic Globe Update





Okay, first of all look at the last picture. The magic globe decided to fix itself. It's back on the same page as me. Thank goodness because trying to reprogram this thing is a nightmare. I find that is usually the case with gadgets, they are cool when they work but if something goes wrong it's very confusing to fix. Maybe my menopause moments are rubbing off on this gadget, do you think so Kari?
And I was suppose to start my knitting class tonight at our local high school but it was cancelled because not enough people signed up for it. The teacher is hoping enough people will sign up for her November class. In the meantime I have this book called knitting and crocheting for dummies and my supplies I needed for the class. So I am going to try and figure it out myself until I start classes next month. But first I have to figure out how to get the book out of the dummy proof plastic. Also if you want to see someone who really knows how to knit go here to Karolee's and see the sweet sweater she made for her daughter's baby doll. I might even check out Hobby Lobby and Micheal's to see if they offer any classes.

And while I was on the ship last week they offered a scrapbook class and my friend and I decided it would be fun to try this and guess what this is a fun hobby. That's the second picture. I am picking up my pictures today and getting to work on my Alaska scrapbook. I'm sure it's like any other thing, it just takes some time to get good at it. My sister Judy does this and she tells me it's alot of fun.
Well, that's it for know. I've been slowly getting to all of your blogs. You guys sure have been busy. Most of you have mastered alot of the blogging mysteries while I've been gone, like the signature thing and the changing of the backgrounds. Thanks Kari for your e-mails that will walk me through it. I've been looking at them and just haven't had time to work on it yet. But can't wait to try it.


Safe Travels,



Joan

I wish we lived closer - I would be happy to sit down with you and give you lessons on knitting.

I just taught my son to purl last night and a friend stopped by this morning for a quick purling lesson (and to drop her sweet little baby off for me to watch while she was at the eye doctor).

Let me know when you get knit and purl figured out and I'll send you a fun pattern for making your own dishcloths. It's quick, easy, and practical. I usually give it as a first knitting lesson to my new knitters.

I'm 38 and should not be going into menopause (according to the doctor) but I've had odd symptoms lately. One is that my hair is suddenly very thick and is growing like nuts. My hairdresser and I have decided that this is better than hot flashes =) AND I can't remember the date either!!! Blessings... Polly

Glad to hear the globe got it's magic back :-) I love gadgets...until they decide to act up.

Okay, everyone I know is knitting. I haven't taken it up yet though. I have an addictive personality so I'm afraid to start anything new.

Hugs!

Well I'm glad the globe is fixed. I would have had to pitch it if it were mine and broke...

Tomorrow I am starting a knitting class online at Christian Crafter's Knitting 101 blog. There's a link on my blog roll if you want to check it out. I have no idea what I'm doing but hopefully I'll end up with something resembling a scarf.

Love,
Julie
