Having A Good Week!

We have been busy this week.  Dragging furniture to donate into the garage. The sectional was the worst to get out! We will have gotten rid of seven pieces of furniture! This is our living room for now. We will get a sofa after we move in May.
I also have been busy crocheting a new doily on the weekends. It is called Double Take by Elisabeth Hiddleson

Last week we had this...

This week we have Bosley across the street napping in the sun.
And Sylvia in the window and soaking up some sun.

That is my week! Thanks for visiting. I am trying to get caught up on my blog reading but things are getting more hectic as move time draws closer. Huggles.

Crochet, tornadoes, hail and snow!

Hello again! Been a wild week weather wise but more about that later. I have pictures of the finished Twisted Comfort Lovey. I am quite pleased with her and have even started another.

Also finished up and stiffened hearts for an order.

And I finished my rug. Jack likes the colors, I am still on the fence about it. I used what I had around here so slim pickin's!
Now about that crazy weather. We had this glorious sunset last week and that night a tornado warning! No damage here but there was some in other areas.

Then a couple nights ago we had a thunderstorm warning and hail.
Now today we are having a little bit of snow after a day of rain! Never a dull moment!
We got this chair yesterday for fifteen dollars. Now we are donating the sectional so we do not have to move it. We have a rocker and this chair to sit in until after we move in May and then we will find a good used sofa.
Now time for a little Sylvia! "Helping" make the bed!
The monster at the end of the hall.
And taking plenty of naps!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

My weekend Doings!

For my weekend me time I am making a lovely. The pattern is by Inger soto.It will go to my hubby's cousins wife's granddaughter. Did that confuse you? Ha, ha! If you want to see what it will look like you can go here ->Twisted Comfort Lovey  I will finish her up tonight as I have only the head to finish and attach. The curly bit is the hair. Sorry the blanket picture is blurry. Sometimes my tired old camera gets cranky.

I had Sylvia compoany today to help. Here she is begging to play, so we did until...
Fell asleep.
She has been a lazy girl this week.

And happy as we can always tell when she spreads those kitty toes!

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!

Sorry for the short post. Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.
