Busy little me!

The big order of angels and snowflakes is all done! Hooray! Here was the last patch drying!

Yesterday I had a little fun and made a heart pillow. Third one I have done and this one is keeping another pillow company on the ladderback chair.
And I have gotten five of the Bee Hives and Clover squares done.
Now I am cross stitching on my friends Names Of Jesus piece.
Now I know you are also asking what her Cattness Sylvia has been up too! Well, a little playing,
a little guard duty,
looking silly,
and plenty of naps!
That is it for this week. Thanks for visiting! Huggles and blessings.

Some Yarn Happiness!

Well I tried this last night and no go so let's try a post tonight! LOL! Anyway, last month I made thirty dollars on surveys I did. Jack wanted me to have some fun with it and who am I to argue? I bought this package of yarn from Herrschner's for 27 dollars and had enough left to buy a pattern from Joyce Lewis AKA Sunnica called "beehives and clover". Here is the yarn first.
And here is the first square done.
It is not a difficult pattern per say but the construction makes it a little tricky if you were a beginner in crocheting. It is worked continuously and you must take care nothing becomes twisted as the square here shows what I mean.
Oh, look what Jack came home with the other day! He knows I love fall and crocheting towel toppers so these will be wonderful to do!
I saw some today with pumpkins on them and me thinks I might need them as well! Now here is Miss Sylvia Joy enjoying her day!

Crocheting With a Helper!

Not a whole lot to show you but here goes! I finished up the baby blanket this past weekend.
I also tried to finish up and put the edging on my shawl. As you can see I had a "helper"! Nothing got done on it.

And today we are trying to be so regal!
A short post I know but I have been doing my best to finish up all those angels and I did it! Now the last dozen snowflakes to do and all finished! Thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings!

Crochet and cross stitch!

Hello again friends! I managed some crocheting and cross stitch this week. Here is the cross stitch progress. I love doing the Joyful Expressions pattern Names Of Jesus piece. I can never do it to much!
Lots of progress also on the shawl as you can see.
Jack insisted on getting me this yarn as it was on sale and I gave in! LOL! It is Yarn Bee in a color combo called green Tea Swirl. It will become and afghan and I have some other fallish colors picked out to go with it.
Other than finishing up the large order of angels and snow flakes, that is about it for this week on stitching. Let me share a beautiful moth with you. It is called a polyphemus moth and this one is a male about four inches wingtip to wingtip.
Now we will finish up with silly Sylvia! Also a beautiful cloud!

Fun week!

Hello again, late as usual! Not to much crochet to show but here it is. The angel factory is still going. I am neraly done and only have two dozen to go,
I tore up the afghan and am making a shawl with it instead. This feels like the right thing this time.
Also made another test square. Jack likes the way the red and blue striping yarn did so there it is!
This week they power washed and painted all the porches and balconies. It looks really nice and fresh.

I also took time to make some cheesecake pudding with some cherries I steamed on top and pecan and graham cracker crumbs.
We visited down at our neighbor Trudy's and also got to visit with Colby the corgi and his mom. Colby has a foot thing!
And can not forget Sylvia being Sylvia!

Busy, busy!

A bit of a busy week so not a lot to share but I do have a few fun things. I meant to post earlier this weekend but Blogger was being mean! LOL! I have made progress on the cross stitch piece. The only crafty thing I have to show you!
We went to petco Thursday and this little fella really took a shine to me!
Got a picture as well of our cell phone tower down the road! They tried to make it look like a pine tree. Cracks me up!
And now on to Sylvia Joy pics. Nurse Mugs as we call her. She laid against my head when I had to have a lie down for a migrane this week.
And of course, just being Sylvia!

Thanks for visiting this short post! Huggles and blessings.

Crochet and cross stitch oh my!

Long time no see! I really did not have much of anything to share with you last week. You may be surprised to hear this week that I am actually cross stitching too! I have a request for a Names of Jesus piece for a friend.
Mostly, I am working on the six dozen angel order to get them finished up, but I need a break from it some times. The other things keeping me occupied is this baby blanket called Cloudberry. It will go to our Doctor for her first grandbaby.
I have a tiny bit of progress also on my ripple round afghan too.
Now on to other fun things. We had some refreshing rain showers yesterday after a bit of a dry spell. I thought the leaves looked pretty with the raindrops on them.

Sylvia has been lazy and after playing a bit, she conks out on me! LOL!

And she has been enjoying window watching as well.
