Saturday morning we hit Hobby Lobby, didn’t buy anything (which I still can’t believe LOL) and then went over to Super Wal-Mart and got DD some pool toys. We were back at the hotel by 11am and DD and I hit the pool and stayed down there until a little after 4p.m. J I alternated between the pool and crocheting in the shade most of the day! What a wonderful day! After the pool, we went out to dinner at a wonderful dinner at Pasand Indian Cuisine on Baseline Road. The food was fab, the service was good. We had SO much food left over and we ate till we were stuffed, so we brought two boxes of leftovers back to the hotel with us. The prices were excellent, will definitely make by the next time we are in Phoenix.
They were giving out D-backs alarm clocks to the kids under 12 as we entered the ballpark, so DD was super excited about that. DD and I sat up in the SNP area and DH sat across the stadium near the bullpen. I crocheted the whole game, except of course when we were consuming our obligatory ballpark food. J Hotdogs, bratwurst, fries, ice cream, and cotton candy were our food choices. A wonderful little girl sang the national anthem, she looked like she was about 5 years old. Misty May-Treanor, Volleyball Olympic Gold Medalist, threw out the first pitch. She received a sounding applause! Senator (Presidential Hopeful) John McCain was also in attendance. We received our wonderful SNP/D-backs t-shirts. There were only 2 venders in the SNP, so I was a little disappointed about that. The D-backs lost to the Marlins, but we still had a wonderful time!

Summer is over for the kids here, school starts tomorrow. DD is going into the 7th grade and very much into her "Look". I think she tried on 30-40 pairs of blue jeans on Saturday when we went school shopping and only wound up with 2 pair of Jeans and one pair of jean capris!
I permed her hair yesterday. She's been begging me for 2 years. I finally broke down and did it for her LOL. It's really cute.
Lots of swaps this month, and I am beginning to host swaps on swap-bot. It's really nice there so far and I love the people there!

The potholder and matching dishcloth below is what I made for my partner. I used Peaches & Cream 100% Cotton in Daisy Ombre. For the potholder, I crocheted two stranded with white, and it is also double thickness, so it's super sturdy for HOT STUFF :-).

You DO NOT have to use Red Heart Worsted Weight.... these are just color examples. But please make sure you match the colors as close as possible.
