Above, you will recognize from Ravelry, this gorgeous pattern by Tanya Beliak. This won two ribbons, Best In Show and that coveted Blue Ribbon for 1st Place.
Nadita Swings. It, too, won a ribbon. I also love the orange and black stunner in the middle!
I just had to share the above pic of the piglets! Look at all those newborn squealers! I'm not sure what's up with that little spotted piggy in the center, but isn't he/she just THE cutest?
On a personal note...the above photo was taken in 1974 when I was in 8th grade and living in Des Moines, Iowa. That's me, on the right, with my besties! It was '50's day at the Jr. High...Middle School to you younger folks! Here we are, together again in the below pic almost 40 years later.
I haven't seen these two since I moved away in 1975. We are older and wider, but fell right back into our groove like no time had passed. Laughing, quite loudly, and reminiscing about things we did and places we went. I would say something like....what ever happened to....and we would all say his name, first and last, at the same time, clutching our hands to our heart, remembering how we drooled over him in Jr. High.
It was a great life back then and I cherish it today as some of the happiest years of my life!
Have a great week,
