New Shawl and Stoles Finished!

I've been as busy as a bee this week. I finally finished Dot's "Lacy Fans Stole" and love the way it turned out! I also finished the Rose Filet Shawl. This was my first attempt at Filet. It was super easy but I had a hard time seeing the rose in the finished product. I'm going to add some fringe and am planning to wear it to the big black tie dinner with my DH next weekend.

My first crochet class at Hobby Lobby is tonite and I'm excited. I love sharing this wonderful form of art and relaxation and hope my students are just as excited when they leave my class.

DH and I watched "Just Like Heaven" last night and it was a fantastic movie! Probably one of the best Romantic Comedies we've seen in awhile. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it.

We also watched the new Harry Potter movie this week. Very disappointing. I am a huge fan of the audiobooks and was looking forward to this movie. The book version is sooooo much better than the movie, they just had to chop so much out of the movie.

News from the weekend

Well my DH's niece, Katy, got married on Saturday. Here's a pic of us before the wedding. It turned out nice so I thought I would add it. (The poncho was made with Yarn Bee Soft Delights yarn in "Pink" and I used the Quick and Quirky Q Hook pattern which was way simple to use. My only suggestion? If using this yarn beware, as it sheds worse than a cat!)

So the wedding was Saturday. Let's just say it was interesting. If you'd like to see the pics I took click here to see my photo album on Photobucket.

We took home our "new" little doggie from the wedding Saturday and it soon became evident that we would not be able to keep him. He sheds incredibly and we learned shortly after getting home that my DH is allergic. It's a shame as he's such a cutie, but we are sure we'll find him a good home.

My first Crochet Class is this Saturday at Hobby Lobby. I'm super excited about it and hope it goes well. Wish me luck! I have a couple more people signed up so I'll at least make some extra money this weekend!

Was anyone else disgusted by the Oscars last night? The little "spoof" they did on Brokeback Mountain showing all the old Hollywood Westerns and cliping portions and such to make it look like all the old westerns were "gay cowboys" was offensive and disgusting. I'm quite certain that John Wayne, Charlton Heston and others shown would also be offensed by this. I have nothing against those who are gay. I have gay friends. However, the Bible is very clear on this matter and the last time I checked I live in America. The Constitution was written upon religious beliefs. Our founding fathers were Christians and active members of their churches. I'm sorry, but now that Brokeback Mountain has won all these awards, it's "normal" to be gay and go to gay movies. I am sorry, but I cannot stomach it and am very upset about it. I'm tired of my religious rights being affected while those of every minority group get more and more. I'm sure many people won't like my opinions, but it's what I believe. Again, I'm not here to tell a gay person that they will burn in hell, but I cannot condone it either. I am saddened by what has become of this world. Watch closely as Jesus will be coming again soon. The worse things get, the closer Armegeddon will be. (Ok, enough of the preaching. I had to get that off my chest!)
