Cross Stitch? Yes, please

I finally finished up all those potholders and would happily do it again!  It never gets old!  Here is the box full.
I also am doing bracelets for someone and enjoying them as well.  The black ones are not so easy as I can't see it well.
And I did pick up my Rose Sampler and enjoyed some time with it.  This the last bit of it, three pages along the bottom.
And I also managed this last week to cut out and assemble a loose fitting jumper from some fabric given to me.
I don't know if you like fog, but I love it and we had a wonderful foggy day this week.
There is also little peeks of fall color around here as the temps have been cool.

We had a noisy visitor too this past week.  I am pretty certain it is a killdeer.
I thought you might like to see our little craft room.  It is upstairs and has a lovely view of the mountain a short distance away and is pretty peaceful too.

This past week has had some beautiful clouds and sunsets.






Now for a Sylvia Joy fix!  I thought I would finish up my shawl, but Sylvia turned it into a kitty cozy.


And just chillin' out!
Thanks for visiting!  Huggles and blessings!

I can see the end!

I am three potholders away from finishing an order and then one small one to go!  I love doing it but I am itching to finish up some stitching!  Here are the potholders I have done lately.

We took some items to a place called the Compassion Center, a thrift store run by a church and came home with this cute little mirror.  Some cleaning and a new coat of stain and a bit of repaor and it will be good to go.
Wednesday night was quite fun!  A couple who lives not far from us and who we met on facebook came to visit.  I fell in love with their 17 month old daughter Abigail and even got a kiss from her!  Her parents are Michael and Elizabeth and they are so precious!  They even brought a huge bag of fabric and I will donate some of it to a friend who makes items for charity.

And lastly here is our silly Sylvia!

Hello on a cool fall day!

Hold on folks this is gonna be a big post!  I have been crocheting away since last we talked and here are some of the results.  A very large and bright potholder.
 A smaller purple one.
 And lots and lots of pot holders with more to come!
My winter shawl is coming along nicely to.
Made an infinity scarf for a friend.  It is a really quick and easy pattern and I love the warn which was a gift from a dear couple.  I am doing one in blue next.
Now for the tale of two knitting boards.  The first is one Jack got in the early 1980's made with wood and cotter pins by a rancher in Kansas.  It has served him well but is limited in what you can do and if you make hats, you have to sew a seam.
This is his new knitting board or loom.  You can adjust it in such a way that you can make socks, hats, scarves, blankets, etc.  I want to get him the largest size some day as well.

Well, we had storms again off and on this week.  Here is the sunset from a couple days ago as they were moving in.



And now we mustn't forget her Sylvianess!




And a couple weeks ago I was asked if I ever had trouble learning a new stitch.  Some do take a bit to learn with doing and redoing and studying on it.  The biggest thing I have an issue with at times is directions.  Sometimes with the memory issues I have I can really confuse myself!  LOL!

Where have I been?

Well, it has not been the best times of late.  My beloved Jack is in a lot of pain with an arthritis flair in his knee and I have been fighting a toothache and sinus infection and trying to get orders done and keep up the house.  So no stitchy stuff to show but we did take an outing Friday for a belated treat for Jack.  I took him to The Wooden Spoon in Gentry AR for lunch and we were treated with lots of gorgeous old cars when we came out.





Next it was on to Crystal Lake in Decatur AR.  That was a bit chilly as it was only 49 degrees but it was lovely and peaceful and Jack was in Heaven!





That evening we had storms and rain.  The clouds were very interesting!

Then onto Hobby Lobby in Rogers on the way home where I saw this interesting display of boxes while buying a knitting board for Jack's birthday.

Now here is are lazy, silly girl!
