Snowmen, snowmen and a hat!

Hello and thanks for stopping by. My bag of 2 dozen snowmen is now a box of 45 snowmen! Once I get to sixty, I will start doing their hats and scarves. I will finish the last three dozen after these are done and sent.
I did also manage to finish a cap for another friend. The blue is not really blue it is purple! My camera is confused!
My Jack had his 64th birthday the 1st of the month and I let him pick out a goodie.
I also managed to find a little snowman with his cardinal friend to come home and join the other snowmen.
After a near 90 degree yesterday, it was a lovely misty, hazy 50 degree day today. You can hardly see the mountains for the haze as we were on the way to recycle.
And here are some pretty pictures here in our complex.

This afternoon, Sylvia Joy thought she would sit with me on the sofa. What a silly girl!

I Am Back!

I do not have much to show you today but a little. Sorry I was gone so long but I got down with a UTI right after my last post and then Jack was down with his knees for about a week. In the meantime, I got in more orders for crochet items. I have to crochet 7 dozen snowmen, 6 dozen angels, a dozen hearts and three chemo caps. I think that might keep me out of trouble for a bit! here is nearly two dozen little snowmen bodies. I will do all the bodies first.
I also have some snowflakes I am making as well. I love doing snowflakes! This is keeping me happy this weekend.
That is about as crafty as I have been lately! Now here is some silly Sylvia pictures for you to enjoy!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

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!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

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!

Thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings!

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!
