I'm thinking of taking photos of things I've made and putting them on Flickr. Anyone who may read this--is it relatively simple? I'm sure it is....... My 50th birthday is next week and I was kind of hoping for a camera besides the 2 new porches I just got.......not sure if that's gonna happen....(!) things are good and getting ready for pre-Thanksgiving prep...older son and friend come in tomorrow instead of today. Life is good!........

I finally finished 2 more felted bags. I just have to sew on the beads. I will post pics when they are fully complete. Now they are drying..... I started the sweater I promised my mother, it's a miniature red sweater for a doll I made for her.
I'm sure wishing I had a better camera. The photos I take are not too, would that be the camera,or the photographer? heh heh
Spoke to older son last night and he is coming home with friend from Purdue on Monday. Older daughter is coming home Wednesday night, she and friend are flying in from Tucson. DH's 2 sisters and families are coming, also, for Thanksgiving. Very exciting, you know. I love to cook for everyone and just have a lot of people around!!!
Confession: I have never knit a sweater, I knit a cool poncho, which I should also take a picture of, anyway, someone once told me that if I knit these little sweaters, then I can knit a person sized sweater with no that true?
