Crochet and wicked weather!

Well, I am nearly buried in my yo-yo's!  And I nearly have done all I need.  I have 155 to do of the 640 I need.  Hooray.  I have been working on the first strip to see what it looks like.

Jack is back to cross stitching and working on some cute quilt squares.  His hand is not 100% but it is well enough he canceled his appointment with a specialist.  I believe it is on the mend.
Had some nasty weather Wednesday night.  Tornadoes all around us and very large hail.  We only got winds, lots of rain and some pea size hail.  The lightening was wicked!



And Sylvia has been, well, Sylvia.  She beat up a mouse and the tablecloth here.
Really enjoyed some belly loves.
Took a nap.
And loved on Jack.

That is our week in a nutshell!  Blessing and huggles and thanks for visiting

Peek a boo!

Not much crafty going on here.  Still doing afghan repair but I have done a few yo-yos and decided how I want to do the border.

Beautiful sunset a few days ago here.




And a lot of lazy cat naps too!


And window time!

Rainy Week Stitching!

I have some dibs and bits of yarn again, so time to pull out my yo yo's and make some more.  I have nearly 300 of the 540 I need.  I have decided to do the border in black to make them look almost like stained glass.  It will become a summer bedspread.
I am nearly done with the boots for a friend.  I took a picture but the camera was beeing ornery so no picture.  I also found this darling pattern for a dollar and love it.  Already started a second one.  They don't take long.  The link is here->Heart Pillow
We had a lovely sunset the other day after a day of rain.
And look who had the zoomies and a case of the sillies.
Loving her brushing!
Kitty Toes!

Sleepy time!

A finish!

Yes, you heard me right, Tempest the dragon is finished!  I did make some changes.  No outlining on the border as I liked it soft.  And I changed the word on the cup to blue instead of deep purple.
Now I am working on some boot/sock things for a friend.  They are quite easy.
And of course afghan repairs continue and I am making real progress now!  Okay, now we need Sylvia pictures!  I just love those toes!
All sleepy after lovin's from dad.

Another sleety, snowy day!

Well my little dragon "Tempest" is nearly done.  Only the backstitching to do.
I also finished sewing a top to wear over my t shirts.  I want to make it a bit longer on the next one.
And I know no one has had enough snow have they?  So how about snow pictures?  I heard on the news that only Florida has no snow and the other 49 states including Hawaii have some snow!

 Remember the embroidered pictures a post or two ago?  I did not do those but my husband Jack has done several!  I love every one of them!  Now here are some Sylvia pictures to laugh at!

Cold day=crochet the day away!

Jack is down now with his knee poor guy.  Looks more like two knees instead of one.  But I still managed plenty of crochet.  I worked on Jack's vest, and repairing the afghan and finished up the prayer shawl.  Here it is.
I also started on my heavy winter shawl for next winter.
It was cold out today and spitted a little now at us this afternoon.  My ears about froze off taking trash out.
Meanwhile, last night, Sylvia about got me in the eye again.  I tell you that girl is dangerous!
Before the knee flair up, Jack managed to finish hanging my shelves.  He still has little use of his right hand but he has learned to adapt.  He sees a specialist at the end of March.

So thanks very much for visiting!  Come back soon.  Huggles and blessings.

A little stitching!

I mostly am working on one doily this week but have put it aside for now to work on a prayer shawl.  Here is where I stand on the doily now.
And this is the prayer shawl I am working on.  It is really easy to do and will be done soon.
With the snow melting off the porch roof last week.  We ended up with some interesting bushes!  I especially like the berries encased in ice.  The snow picture was of a quick snowburst a day or so ago.



I was trying to remove the sheets to wash and had some help!
And I just really do love kitty toes!
The usual winter hibernation!
