Posting attempt take two!

I was all set to post Friday night and then I started getting ill. It is something that happens now and again and within a day or two I am fine. So today I am back! Ha, ha! I have had doilyitis of late in between a mountain of these.

And proof of my doilyitis. Did this pinwheel one in a couple days.
Finished up this one earlier this week. Another Grace Fearon design Elise.
Then started on Mathilda a few days ago. Finished it up this morning. No picture yet of the finish.
We had a glorious sunset the other night.
It got up to 80 degrees the other day and I had to open a window. Sylvia was very pleased!
All that fresh air wears a girl out!

Lorraine Doily Update

I am a row and a half away from finishing the doily. Not bad considering only working on it during the weekend. Did I tell you the color is called papaya? Oh and the designer is Grace Fearon.

We had some excitement last weekend. Got up Sunday morning to water on the floor in the laundry room. The water tank had went out. This is pictures of the back side of it. Could have been bad if that had blown out. Jason the maintenance man said the thing was thirty years old.

Now for some fun. Here is Sylvia smiling!

And just being Sylvia!

Oh and the difference of the before and after of staining the shelves from the bookcase. The shelf in front is before and the one behind is after. A refreshing change after thirty plus years of that boring brown!

A Little Post For You

Working on some little hearts this weekend to gift. I am having a great deal of fun with them.
I also started on a doily called Lorraine. I can not remember the young ladies last name but her first name is Grace. I simply love all the interesting stitches and texture of it. Of course during the week I am still working on angels. It is slow going as my Jack is down with his leg again.
Another lovely sunset this week!
And plenty of Sylvia hijinks!

Busy, busy me!

I now have a big stack of hexagons done. I will finish the afghan after we move and I have the dollars for some more yarn. So they are packed away now.
Mostly I am working on two orders of angels. One for 36 and one for 20. I have nearly 20 done but am on a much better roll now so they should go quickly.
I sometimes need a break from small work, so I am making a rug. It is a quick and easy project. Each square has only five rows. I did all the center after trying the first one, and now I am doing them in assembly line fashion, one row at a time on each square.
This morning it was a stack of squares and hot tea!
I have taken a little time as well to color on this for Jack's mom.
And Jack finished painting the table legs so I am doing a light green on the top. I will finish it up Monday.
Last week, we were quite surprised to see this out the living room window. It was a huge boat!
So here now is Sylvia in all her glory!

Long Time No See!

Well, last week started out wonderful but ended with Jack down with his knee so that kept me busy. We did get to meet with a friend we had not seen in 17 years when she came to town with her new boyfriend. That was a grand day! The rest of the week went downhill but we are doing better this week. Here is Judy and Jim.
All of us at Cracker Barrel taken by a sweet lady for us we did not even know!
Judy's darling doggie Sissy came to visit as well.
I have been managing to crochet and finished my friends afghan this week.

Working on snowmen another friend has ordered three dozen of. He needs his hat yet.
She also wants three dozen angels and another friend ordered twenty.
Okay now this yarn you will most likely hate or love. Jack bought it for me a couple or so years ago. I love it! It is what is called mill end and they are very inexpensive. I auditioned a couple patterns but nothing felt right until this week! I got a trial issue of I Love Crochet magazine. In there was a shawl with a four row hexagon I liked. My hexagon is quite a bit bigger and will become an afghan. The yarn is very soft and not so bad to work with. I will add hexagons in other shades using Lion Brand homespun.

And what, you ask, has the Queen herself been up too? well see for yourself.



And lastly, we have been having some lovely sunsets the last couple weeks.

What Am I Up To this Week?

Well first I have been working on painting the inside of my little table. Need a couple more coats.
One more row done on the friend's afghan and another about ready to add.
Playing with a doily with a lovely color called eggnog from Hobby Lobby.
But most fun of all, laughing at a very silly kitty named Sylvia.
