I hate it when...

I can't remember stuff! I don't read to many blogs only about 25 and a lot of times I read the comments and I click and check out other people's blogs. I really hate it when I find something that I should have bookmarked and didn't, then I can never remember when I was there or what the blog was. I can usually remember what it's about, which is why I'm trying to find it.. Last week I was trying to find a cool slipper pattern that had a velcro flap thing. It took me forever to find it! This week it's a tutorial on using the backing of a quilt to make the binding. It was a pretty good one. All I remember is that she had made two charity quilts, one was pink. Can't find it anywhere. If that sounds familiar to anyone, please let me know. There are other tutorials out there, but mostly I want to find it so that it will stop bugging me! Okay, now that it's out of the way.
On to the scarves, which really I'd like to call scarfs, only because it sounds funny :)

The first one is just a knit one purl on to make it ribbed, and it's stretchy. Made from Lion Brand Homespun, don't know the color. The bottom two are a knit one purl on rib with a ruffle at the bottom. I don't know what kind of yarn the pink is ,might be Red Heart Soft Yarn. The blue is Lion Brand Thick and Quick (I think?). The pattern is in a book called Designer One Skein Wonders. I have a bunch more I could show but I would of had to get them out of the box in the closet. Maybe tomorrow I'll do hats. I love to make hats, they might be the best thing to make, they are quick and easy most of the time ! 
I've started working on my quilt. I honestly can't remember if I mentioned that I decided to make a coin quilt. I've got all the "coins" cut and sewn together. That's all for now! Thanks for stopping!

Check it out!

Friday of last week Kari from The Purple Quiltapotamus awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award! How cool is that! I'm pretty excited about it! Thanks so much Kari for thinking I deserved an award :)
There are rules to this award... 
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2. Share seven things about yourself on the post.
3. Pass the award to fifteen bloggers that you think deserve it.
** EDIT this to say at least 2 blogs, 15 is great but it's a crap ton of work and makes a crap ton of work for everyone else.
4. Contact all of the bloggers that you've picked for the award.

Alrighty, here are 7 things about me.
- I like to eat cottage cheese sandwiches, sounds gross but they are yummy!
- I've known my B/F since the summer before I turned 13, that's more than 17 years.. 
- I have a reverse birthmark, it is white instead of brown. It only come out when I get a tan and it's the same shape as my Mom's and my Grandma's.
- I love to read!
- I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in psychology (that is going to waste...)
- I really love animals.
- I very rarely drink soda (and yes that is what I call it, not pop). This is mostly because when I got laid off I stopped buying things I didn't need. Drinking none means no caffeine. I used to love Dr. Pepper and Cherry Coke..sigh.. I miss it sometimes...
Not very exciting things but there you have it. Now I have to pass it along to 15 other bloggers.  Here they are, in no particular order (of course).

Ok, just so you all know, that was a lot of work! Putting in links for 15 blogs. But they deserve it so if there is one you've never heard of go check it out! Now I have to go let all of these lovelies that they've received an award. I think I'll do that in the morning. I'll be honest with you, when I read Kari's post, I didn't even see myself on the list... 
And if any of you don't want the award or don't want to do the work, but want the award or don't want to follow the rules, that's fine with me, I'll still like you! Hehe! I don't think it's like a chain letter where something bad happens if you don't do it.. those bad things really happen..right??
Tomorrow I'm going to try and take some pics of some of the stuff I've done and post some here and then I think I'll put the rest on my Flickr page. Plus, I have some other stuff to share but I've spent all this time hooking up the links so It'll wait till tomorrow.  Hope you all check back for that exciting stuff!
