So not........

 ............good pictures, but since I am still not at home and doing things when there is little time and even less brain cells functioning they will have to do.  This is a new necklace I have finished since I got to Florida and it is part of my Alice's Garden series.  The title is Jabberwocky.
I had another name for it when I started but it evolved as I went until it told me it's new name.

On another note I am up to 13 hats finished but have gotten sidetracked trying to make a bag for the Art In A Bag project I do every year.  Don't know that I will get it too them in time, but I can sure try.  This is a great project and a great cause.  This year they are working to start a Beads of Courage program in Omaha, NE.

A finished necklace.

 These are not the greatest pictures and I sure do miss my little photo box but I wanted to show you a new necklace.  Someone said it looked like little Mexican skirts.  And somewhere someone mentioned it looked like a Fiesta so that is what I have decided to call it.
This one has been in the planned but not made stage for more than a year.  It had been living it's life in a little Ziploc box with all the parts and pieces waiting for me to just get a round to it.  I think it said finally when I even opened the box to get it started.

On another note I am up to 11 hats and have a 12th started.

Airplane rides.........

...........and waiting rooms give me lots of time to knit and crochet.  This is the batch of hats I have made in the last couple of weeks.  I actually have two more started and not finished to add to the pile.  These are all for Halos of Hope.  I managed to get 20 hats made last year and donated them to the group when I went to the Stitches Midwest show in August.  Halos of Hope is a great organization that provides hats to cancer patients.  I would really like to get one made a week for the next year so that I can donate 52 hats but we shall see once I get home to all the normal chores.
