Take A Guess

Good morning everybody! Hope you are having a great day. ♥

I named this little girl Reba. ;)
My mom sent me this card.

This guy is named Chip as in Chocolate Chip!
Good 'ol mom! It sure made me smile. Those are "my chips" as they are referred to in this house. The kids might like potato chips, but I prefer my Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips!!

I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off yesterday. Have a frame for the tiny needlepoint that will probably work. Almost done stitching it!

 And finally, any guesses on what this will be for?

Antique French knife rest (poodle)

I picked this up at JoAnn last night. It is another project for our anniversary on October 3rd. It is something I have never done. It looks like fun. I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY WILL NOT BELIEVE IT IF ONE OF YOU ACTUALLY GUESSES WHAT I HAVE PLANNED FOR THIS YARN!!  tee hee!

Stitching and praying and goin' a bit crazy,

Hey Vickie!
I hope that your pain specialist finds you some relief. I am so sorry that you'are going through this. .
I love the fall pics that you posted. I love this time of year.
Will there be a heart involved, in the yarn project for your anniversary?

Sorry you are still in pain. I must say, so far, fingers and toes are crossed, that the injections I received on Wednesday are working! I will find out just what the med he used is and what the procedure is called and let you know. I know, it is only a few days, but a few days without pain is grand!

Nicola said...

I wonder !! Can't wait to see.

What a great card! And those chocolate chips sound good -- might have to go find some. :D Yay on almost being done with the Erica Michaels piece. I'm very curious about the yarn -- have no clue what you're going to make!

Anne said...

Awww! I love the card your mom sent to you! Dark chocolate is the best! I think you'll make a pink crocheted poodle! Am I right??!?!

I love the colour of that yarn and if you had not said it was for your anniversary I would have guessed at a winter coat for Mabel.

Lovely card from your dear mom. Pretty wool I brought some yesterday to knit for my little one, hugs my friend and take care.

What a sweet card from your mom! Your Ghirardelli chips remind me of my mother--she told me that's her new treat for herself instead of Dove dark chocolates. :)

I like Anne's idea--a pink poodle! I can't wait to see what it is.

Heart-shaped cushion? :-)

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Pants! I think you're knitting some underwear LOL.
Sorry but it's the weirdest thing I could think of.

Catherine said...

What a great card ~ great words to live by!
Your little poodles are cute!
Hhhhhhmmmmmmm......I'll take the safe route and guess a lovely blanket to snuggle under with your sweetie......but I could go with something a little more risqué......hehehe......
