In Loving Memory
You are forever in our hearts

Guy Thomas Willmon
September 15, 1978
January 9, 2009
Beloved son & brother
My darling son, I love you more than words can say.
Your are the light that fills my heart.
You are my pride and joy.
May you find peace.
May spirit support you.
May your spirit soar.
My son, Guy was killed on Jan. 9 in a work related accident.
I hurt more than I ever thought was possible.
This is my worst fear come to life. Everything else seems so trival now.
He was a happy, healthy 30 year old with a lifetime of hopes and dreams to look forward to. Guy was cheated out of those hopes and dreams. And the ones of us who love him were robbed. We will never again hear his voice, see his smile, or hear his laugh, or feel his touch.
The opening song at his memorial service was the original theme song from The Dukes of Hazzard (the original series) by Waylon Jennings. Guy would have liked that. I can see him saying "Hell, Yeah!"

My Projects & Swaps

Here's a pic of the cute Snowlady I received in the Snowman Swap at Amigurumi Swaps and More. My partner Christine made and sent this to me. Thanks Christine!

I also finally finished this shawl for my friend that I had to rip out countless times. I am still not 100% satisfied with the way it turned out. I had to make some size adjustments to the pattern and should have made a size adjustment to the overall size of the Goddess design in the middle. I will have to figure that out before I make another one of these. Anyway, here's the pic.

And there is also this Round Ripple Christmas Tree Skirt that I made. I am pleased with the way that it turned out.

There are a couple of small things that I have made for some Secret Santa Swaps that I am participating in. I haven't taken pics of those things yet and I still have some more things to make for those swaps as well.
After that I need to get started on some Holiday projects. It will be here before ya know it!

Towel Topper, Halloween Mini Cloth, & Dishcloth

A towel topper that I made as a swap item.

I have pics of more items that I made but they haven't reached the person they are going to yet, so I am holding off on posting the pics until they arrive at their destination.

I received another mini cloth and Dish towel from my C'ville Secret Pal. Thanks, SP!

It's difficult to tell in the pic, but the mini cloth has a pumpkin on it.

She also bought me the pattern for the mini cloths. The pattern contains designs for the witch, the pumpkin, Frankenstein, a bat, a tombstone and a ghost. Too Cool!She also bought me the pattern for the mini cloths. The pattern contains designs for the witch, the pumpkin, Frankenstein, a bat, a tombstone and a ghost. Too Cool! thanks, SP!

More Swap Items

Yesterday I received more swaps items in the mail. The first one is from myautumnSecret Pal at Crochetville.

Here is a pic of what my pal sent:

The mini dishcloth has witch flying on her broom on it. Too cute and right up my alley!

I tried to enlarge the picture so the witch would show up better, it's a little better.

Then I also received this little guy for another swap. Isn't he cute?

Thanks Ladies!

Witchy Doll and more

Today I received my Halloween Swap today from Sue for the swap at Denises Crochet Group.
Sue sent me a lovely Barbie Witch doll with a beautiful black witchy dress that she crocheted with thread and the cutest witch hat with spiders on it. Too cute!

She also send a skein of orange yarn, (perfect for this time of year) and a cute Jack o Lantern candle holder with candles.

Thanks Sue!
