Stitch Marker Exchange #2

I completed my 2nd Stitch Marker Exchange from a Yahoo Group I belong to. The first picture was from Cheryl and the second was from Ms. Mar. I find exchanging stitch markers with others so rewarding. Everyone makes them so differently and so beautifully, I just LOVE them! Thanks girls!

If you need some stitch markers (they make a wonderful Christmas present) please check mine out at: I add 4 new sets every other day! I just bought a bunch of new charms, so be on the look out for them.

Girl Scout Halloween Party

The girls had a Halloween Party last night. I made all matching shirts with glow in the dark thread. The web glowed and the spiders eyes and teeth glowed. The names on their backs glowed too. They all had a great time playing games, making cupcakes, making crafts and listening to a spooky story in the dark (where their shirts glowed!).

My first LARGE doily. It took me a long time to finish, but I did. Now I need another one to match my other end table. I used my Grandma Wimberly's crochet hook. She would be so happy if she knew I could crochet.

Annapolis, Maryland

I was a chaperone on the 4th grade trip to our state capital, Annapolis. We first had a tour guide that took us through the state capital building, down Maryland Avenue and to the Navel Academy. Our tour guide, Anne, was just wonderful. I learned so much about the history of our capital. We saw where Senator Haines and Mrs. Stockdale sat during their meetings.

At the Navel Academy, we saw the noon time formation which takes place every day, weather permitting. After formation, they all marched to the dining hall. We saw the statue where the "plebs" attempt to climb every year.

We took a boat ride around the harbor. We could see the Bay Bridge. The captain of the boat played YMCA for the children. We all had a beautiful day!
