The Whistle Stop Cafe'

I came across a great blog post about 
Fried Green Tomatoes and it got me wondering...

You can find it here on Gerri and Mike's blog!

They always say the book is better than the movie 
so I figured what the heck, might as well read it.  
Ya well, guess what?
I haven't! 

But I will, one of these days.

Anyway, I was wondering
have you read any of the other books 
by Fannie Flagg?

On My Hook...

So I decided to start a Christmas present early.  My son has been going through some tough times and I thought it would be nice to have an afghan to snuggle down in when he needs a "hug" from mom.

On my hook right now is a Soft Navy/White Flannelghan.  This is made using two strands of yarn so it's extra thick!  I'm using Caron One Pounders with a N hook & dc stitch.

It's not quite finished as I have two more panels to complete and the edge.  I think he's going to really like it!

I've added this update to my side bar on the right side of my blog so everyone can see what is the latest project.  I still have the green blanket to finish for project linus but felt Andrew needed this first.

On Edit:  I got this pattern from RoseRed.  
You can see her blog here...

Thanks RoseRed...much appreciated!!!
