Plenty going on here!

Hello again! we are getting close to having the hobby room set up. Just a few final things to do.

We celebrated our 37th anniversary the sixth. Jack let me pick out these goodies. He picked out a model for himself. I scoured thru the clearance yarn and also got a lucet for cordmaking (the turquoise item) and I got a hairpin lace thing also.
In the crocheting department a hat for my dear friend Laura, a laprobe for a friend's friend also. And tried out a motif.

We have been having visits from this little house finch and his missus this week.
And today Jack hung my living room curtains. I do not like naked windows at all! LOL!
Oh and I forgot one crochet thing. Actually I only needed to put in the pillow and sew it up. I am on a mission to finish up some things this year.
Now for some Sylvia time!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Miss me?

We have just been so busy I lost track of time. The only two bits of crocheting are this doily.
And also a lap blanket for a friend's friend in a nursing home.
Had a little fun finding a couple cheap treasures!

 Found some hanging begonia baskets on sale also. Two for ten dollars. Nice to have flowers again.

Here is the bedroom all finished except for the snowmen!

And now the snowmen have arrived!
Jack also put up a shelf for us in the bathroom and a hook for the handtowel.
We also finally were able to get a sofa. We have a furniture store here that has a place for discontinued and one of a kind furniture for really, really cheap prices. Been many years since we had a new sofa. I think Jack likes it!
My view out the hobby room window.
And a look see out the living room window.
Raindrops on the leaves a few days ago.
Oh, and my apron got it's home!
I found a shiny eye monster in the hobby room!
Sylvia being Sylvia!

We have had trouble with sweet ants with the rain. How dare they distract a girl from her bath!
Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Here we are!

The move took the best part of a week to do. But we love the apartment and the neighbors too. So peaceful here and it feels like living in a treehouse! Meet some of our critter neighbors.

And this handsome fella lives next to us and is named Galileo.
Here are a few pictures of the area around us including the pond.

The view out the front window.
It meets Sylvia's approval.

Some of the rooms almost fit to show. Still a work in progress for some time.

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.
