Celtic Charm - free papers

More of Celtic Charm. Another zip of papers, this one contains 5 full size papers.

Just adding some notes to this scheduled post. A few things have happened since I last actually wrote. At the end of February local Red Hatters gathered for Go Red For Women - a luncheon dedicated to women's heart health. We heard from members who have heart disease and learned about how women's heart attacks are often different from men's. (Most women think they have a bad case of indigestion!) We had lunch, door prizes, shopped for "bling," participated in raffles, and did some line dancing to burn off those luncheon calories. I got a great surprise; I won the circle of roses hat in the raffles. Here are a couple of scrap book pages I put together.
The photos only show 3 of us from our Red Lilies group. I'm hoping to pick up on photos of the other 3 who were in attendance.

Since the funeral I've been crocheting whenever I watch TV. My step-daughter, Lisa, and her little girl, Larkin, had admired my fingerless gloves when we'd taken them out to lunch. Lisa's favorite color is purple so I made her a set of the gloves and a scarf for her birthday. My husband made her favorite dinner - his beef stew. Before we had cake, Lisa opened her gift bag and Larkin was surprised to find she had a gift bag too. I had made her a scarf of fluffy yarn in a mix of baby blue, white, and beige and a set of gloves in baby blue trimmed with white fluffy yarn. Larkin put her gloves on immediately and didn't take them off until she went to bed!

We've been busy this past week with family stuff and doctor appointments. Sunday my son and his fiancee were here and took me to a movie then the four of us went to dinner at Outback. On my birthday (3/10) we were busy cleaning out the entertainment center which holds my Precious Moments collection as well as all the audio/video equipment, CDs, and movies. We also had to remove as much of the stuff sitting around on tables and things on the wall because work was scheduled for Friday. We had some professional plasterers come in to repair living room ceiling and re-do the living room and hallway ceilings. They moved the furniture around as needed and did a nice half scallop pattern. But we still have lots of work to replace everything we moved. Between watching college basketball tournaments, I wiped down the entertainment center and started putting movies back in alphabetically. Almost done with that but still have CDs and figurines to do.

We are hoping to take a day or two this week and go on a road trip to celebrate my birthday. Maybe do some visiting of family and stop in a casino to play slots for a couple hours. Friday my Red Lilies are going to celebrate 3 March birthdays by going to tea at The English Rose Tea Room in Virginia Beach. Looking forward to that.

My thanks to all for the lovely comments you have left me. Sorry I have been away so much.
