Tuesdays news

A while back I showed my mom how to make friends through yahoo groups online. She kept hearing me talking about my Silly Gals and the quilt swaps that we had been doing and wanted to know where I found them. So I showed her. We got online and I showed her how to search for knit and crochet groups and she joined a couple. She even found a couple of ladies that didn't live too far from us in California. Next stop to connect her to the blog world!! I swear the woman could write her own knit and crochet column if she sat down and thought about it. She makes things for me all the time and never takes pictures. She could post pictures everyday of the things that she's working on.. Let me think what were the latest projects?? Oh I know she made a draft dodger and dog sweater for a couple of the ladies that live here in my town house complex. What is she working on right now? Lacey garters for a girl that I am attending military technical school with.

My Dad says to me one day "Its all your fault! She sits on the computer everyday." and yes I will take part of the blame for that... but recently we have gotten dad hooked on searching the web for everything from car parts to addresses (yes he learned map quest) you name it and he's all about looking it up on the internet.

This morning I woke up to a couple of emails from Mom about the blog world. I'm not sure where she found it, it may have been one of her groups. She found a site all about blog giveaways! I know that a few of the girls have had some give aways Jen, Jill and Moneik to name a few but if your looking for something to pass the time this blog is worth looking over. Bloggy Giveaways.com.

So among my goals of trying to get my mom to join in on our quilting group I am also going to help Mom start a blog. Mom I know your reading this some where because you have asked several times how come my blog is so quiet (smiles). Together we are going to start you a blog, find you a digital camera that you can work, and show you how to show the blog world your wonderful creations! Love YA MOM!!

How exciting for both of your parents to be using the computer. Your Mom will need to show us pictures of her creations when she gets her blog going.
