This pic is my GGGrandparents David and Eliza Dover, supposedly
some Cherokee indian in her? What do you think? This one is my Mom and Dad and me-Dover bunch
This one is my mom and dad's wedding(Shivar and Dover Families)

Here is my GGGranddad-Brinson Shivar(family from Prussia)

I saw a post by Corey on family and thought since I have been working on these photos I would show them, who knows, maybe I have family out there I didn't know was visiting me.

I know it has been over a week since I posted and I haven't even visited y'all very much this week but I have been working on family issues. My dad is working in Illinois (he's an electrician) and has been there since June. He came home for a visit last weekend and bought an RV so I have been handling all of the paperwork and bills that come thru for him. I can hardly keep up with my own and now his too, UGH!!!

I am also in the process of planning the Dover Family Reunion that is to be held on Oct. 20th and this family is so spread out I am still hunting them down. I just found 3 in New Orleans area yesterday and there is only 1 month left before the reunion... Anyway, you can just imagine how frazzled I am working on it, 4 swaps that I joined like some kind of nutjob, and my everyday duties. I will have pictures in the next couple of days of the dresses I made for one swap, the sweet and sinister swap goodies and the Owl swap I am in. Needless to say I will not join 4 at one time again!!
I will be back in the next few days to show what I have been working on, hope everyone is having a great week.

"Flea"in and Taggin

Packs and packs of old gift wrap
I can remember this being on my Granma's curtains, but I found yards and yards.
The flea market has hundreds of these and I just keep buying them up, can't wait to make some altered books with them! You might even find a kit containing one in my etsy shop
Flea-in and Taggin.......Cause that's how we talk in this here part!!

I went to the flea market last week and wanted to share a few things that I found, obviously you see them above. I have also been tagged by Sandy to list my middle name and some words to describe me with each letter. Here are the rules:

So this meme works this way (condensed version):*You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name.*If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.* At the end of your post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.

D-devilish(I love to play jokes on people or say shocking things that embarass most normal people)(you know, abt. hemorrhoids or pooping or what not)

A-Angelic(not really, it is just what my name means:)

W-witty(my husband will laugh hysterically at my using this word, he says I am just plain nuts)

N-never on time(as you can tell, Sandy tagged me on Aug. 30th)

Knittin' Projects

I feel like I haven't been in here in forever and really don't have time for much yappin' now but I did want to show off a few things I have been working on. They are all the same pattern but the bottom pic is a different thread. So easy to do, just cast on 20 on size 13 and for the next 10 rows add one at the beg. and the end, knitting only. After the first 10 rows you only increase at the beg. of each row until the piece is abt. 12 inch deep. You then cut tassles from the remaining thread and attach all the way around the bottom as seen in pic 2. The first and second pic is Colinette and the last I am not sure abt. It has more of a ribbon feel to it than the silky feel of the other.
My next post will be some of the goodies that I found "flea"ing last week. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday.
