My Ole Lady's Knitting Store!

I would like to take this Opportunity to let everyone know that my ole Lady has Opened up her own Knitting Store on Etsy.

At this time thou, she only has 3 Items listed, a Christmas Hat and Christmas Scarf and also a Hooded Everyday Winter Scarf.

I have some followers and I have many viewers it seems so far, so I wanted to Reach out to them and give them a Chance to take a Gander at my ole Ladys Knitted Projects, All you have to do is Click the Title "My Ole Lady's Knitting Store!" The title post, and this will take you to the Store that Belongs to her.

I hope everyone that likes Knitted Projects takes the time to go view her Store, both of us are Disabled and we are trying to make a Little extra money to help pay our bills, and these Stores don't require much to Setup nor Sell, so we are trying our hands at an online Business!

I hope everyone helps by at least viewing the stors to see if there is anything they like, or even if they think it's good enought to pass on to their friends and Family to let them know.

Thanks,

From our Home To Yours!

Hello everyone.

First off I would like to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING! For some it will be a Great Thanksgiving, for others it may not be so great as some of our loved ones will not be able to attend the family Dinner or Family lunch.

But we should not look on the bad things about Thanksgiving of who isn't or who won't show up, but for them that do. It's a Time to enjoy and Make new memories as times and generations pass us by.

It is a time for family and loved ones to get together, in spirit and in person, to bless this day and the days there after and carry on the Traditions as we have before and continue on there after!

So take the time to bless the ones that are here in spirit and bless the ones that are here in life!

And Secondly. I would like to appoligize for not posting any thing in the last few days. We have been busy Preparing for Thanksgiving, Cleaning up, getting things organized and cleaned up. Things will become be back to normal once the Holidays are over with.

I would also like to say, that I have a ustream.tv account and will Eventually be Broadcasting Live Feed in my livingroom during the winter for my Scroll Saw projects and Most likely in my Shop in the warmer months. So I hope that you check out the schedule (I don't have one yet) To see when I will be Broadcasting and also past Pre-recorded Shows.

So anyway, Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy all of that food and God Bless Everyone online and offline, Cyberspace and real life!

Cool Facts

  • The breeding distribution of the Belted Kingfisher is limited in some areas by the availability of suitable nesting sites. Human activity, such as road building and digging gravel pits, has created banks where kingfishers can nest and allowed the expansion of the breeding range.
  • The Belted Kingfisher is one of the few bird species in which the female is more brightly colored than the male. Among the 93 species of kingfishers, the sexes often look alike. In some species the male is more colorful, and in others the female is.
  • During breeding season the Belted Kingfisher pair defends a territory against other kingfishers. A territory along a stream includes just the streambed and the vegetation along it, and averages 1 km (0.6 mi) long.The nest burrow is usually in a dirt bank near water. The tunnel slopes upward from the entrance, perhaps to keep water from entering the nest. Tunnel length ranges from 30 to 250 cm (1 to 8 ft).
