Hooked Up

My newest toys!
I love my new iPad and FlipSlide camcorder.

I know I can live without an iPad and iPhone but why should I!

Back to my roots.
Crocheting a blanket for my new grandbaby which we will meet in November.

A simple shell stitch in cotton ease.

I love Christmas Cacti and this one is older than I am. It must be well over sixty years old and blooms twice a year.

This is the magnolia in front of my house in full bloom.
It's a messy tree but so beautiful.

This is so funny to me. I love electronic gadgets. I LOVE the colors in your crocheted piece. I have a special fondness for old Christmas cacti and I have a tree just like that in my front yard. We would be good friends if given the chance. :-)

Your Magnolia tree is beautiful.

Love that magnolia! Great blanket. And I'm looking forward to getting my Pad in a couple of weeks time :)

I agree with you, we shouldn't have to live without our gadgets.

The blanket is beautiful; I love the colors.

I have a tree by my porch that blooms pretty flowers, but the flowers only last about three weeks, and then it's just green for the rest of the summer. I wish the flowers would last longer.

Soooo jealous re: the iPad! =D Love the blanket and the Christmas Cactus. My uncle has one in the back yard that has been there since the house belonged to my great grandmother, and I love it so when it blooms.
