We found out Tuesday evening that W had been taken to the hospital with chest pain. He underwent an emergency double by-pass on Wednesday. He has been around most of my life, so I consider him to be another brother. My younger brother and I got to go visit him in the hospital at Tyler, TX last night, and he really looked good for just having gone through surgery. They already had him sitting up! Please keep him in your prayers, 'cause we sure do want him up and fishing with X again soon!

Fall is here and Halloween is coming up! I love this time of the year! I remember going to the fair in September... candied apples, caramel apples, cotton candy. Then going for blocks and blocks with my big Sister at Halloween, trick-or-treating when I was little. So in the spirit of Fall, I made the potholder above from a pattern out of "The Happy Hooker" by Debbie Stoller.

While looking through Ravelry the other day, I found 1870 Pearl's "Tribble" pattern (above). They are knitted and are fast and easy to make!
Yesterday was my birthday and DH got me several goodies.....He gave me perfume (Dior Addict) and at work I got a dozen red roses from him! He later took me to dinner at Mimi's Cafe. Also, a co-worker took me to lunch, and I got several "birthday" phone calls from various family members. All in all, a very, very nice birthday!

1 (3.4 oz) package instant Vanilla pudding (or flavor of your choice)
2 cups cold milk
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup miniture chocolate chips (or candy bits of your choice)
Graham crackers or large cookies of your choice
Mix the pudding and milk. Let it get set. Once set, fold in the whipping cream and mini chocolate chips. On a cookie sheet, spread cookies or grahams in one layer, top each with pudding mix, then top that with another cookie. Place in freezer for one hour to set. Take out of freezer, wrap "sandwiches" very well with cling wrap, place back in freezer until served.
Now that I have given my opinion about THAT, *smile*, a look over at Bron's blog this morning reminded me of a pumpkin I made a couple of years ago that I made using Sculpey. I won $100.00 in a contest at work for the first place pumpkin! Our customers all voted on the pumpkins, and I found out later that at first, a lot of people thought I had just slapped a mask on a pumpkin until they got a better close up! Ha! I didn't feel like I did it full justice with the "painting" of the face, (I was in a hurry the night before the contest) but it turned out o.k. I didn't "bake" it, so it dried out and fell apart later.
I also FINALLY got my invite to Ravelry last night. To say the least, I was very excited! All I can say is that I can tell it will be a fascinating place to look around in. I will probably lose hours there, and I can see why there are still about 20,000 folks on the waiting list!

In other potholder news, yes, I had another attack of "chickenitis" after not doing much crocheting this last couple of weeks. We went to visit MY MIL & FIL on Saturday, and on the road trip there and back I got this done:
I need to get working on some baby blankets as for gifts for babies to be born in a few months. I really liked the one Maha made for her friend (seen on the Granny Along). I think I will finish up the two I showed you back in August and might start on one with Granny Squares.
