School Carnivals are cool

Had Meghan's school carnival last night and actually had fun. I volunteered to help with her class' booth, the Pop Pyramid. Got to see lots of people we don't get to see very often which was nice. Her Room-mother got some boy scouts to help with the booth so we sat on our butts most of the time and chatted, which was cool. Conner did pretty good. He was a good sport about letting strange people hold him.
Worked a little more on Meghan's poncho but we have to clean house today 'cause Gene's Mom and Dad are coming over for dinner. My B-day is on Tues. so we are celebrating early. Whoo-hoo. I'm down to my last "20 something" so I'm a little depressed. More than I thought I would be. Oh well, age is only a number and I act like I'm 12 most of the time anyway.

Muffett? What the hay?

Well, yes, as in Little Miss Muffet. That was my nickname as a child and...I hated it. But, when trying to come up with a name for my blog ( I always have a hard time thinking of names for stuff like this) it popped into my head and I guess someone else was tormented as a child and has decided to use it for there blog name, so I shortened it to muffet and, again, somebody had my idea. I added an extra "t" and there you have it!

I think this is such a neat idea (blogging) and I have always been meaning to start a journal. I have no clue how to run this thing but I will learn as go.

I have been in a really crafty mood lately. Currently working on a crochted poncho for my girl and it is going to be way to big for her. I found a better pattern on the net for girls and got some cool pink yarn from Wallyworld. I think she'll love it way better anyway. I'm also teaching myself how to knit and it is really fun, I must say! My grandma sent me a pattern for her washclothes that everyone in my family covets. She makes them every year for her Christmas grab bags and we all hope to get one

Also, trying my hand at quilting. Made my first quilt top last week ansd it was so sorry. My husband said it was pretty good for my first one. I tried another with the leftovers of the first and it was much better. I'm used to making clothes so it's a bit new to me. Wish me luck on all my adventures!
