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!

Thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings!

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.

Good crochet weather!

Had a good birthday yesterday although My Jack is not feeling well. Not sure what is going on with him but poor guy!
I thought I would do one of the button and bows square in cream so you could see it better.
I also am going to town crocheting angels for a friend. Six dozen to make!
And managing a little fun time with my birthday yarn too!
With it being so hot, Sylvia is lazier than usual even if she is in where it is air conditioned!

Sorry it is such a short post but it has been a bit of a not so good week for getting much of anything done! I will leave you this video from the night before last of the evening sounds. You will hear a cicada and a cardinal.

A Finish and scraps

Hello! well I finished my cover up a day or two ago. It fits good and is nice and cool too.
I also am playing with a pattern called Buttons and bows. It is a bit hard to see with the ombre yarn but here it is.
My birthday is coming up Friday. Jack helped me pick out some self striping yarn. Most of this stuff is expensive and you do not get a lot for your money. This is from Lion Brand called Mandela and it is 590 yards for around five dollars. This color is called Spirit.
Here is a little pretty for you. We are treated to these lovely flowering shrubs when we come and go from our apartment.
Now time for some Sylvia laziness!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Just a little post but lots of Sylvia!

Just one little crochet thing to show you. I am close to finishing up a cover up. I thought the grey would go good with anything.
The rest is all Sylvia. She thinks Jack's ear and glasses are a grand foot rest. Jack thinks it smarts!
Bath time!
Being a goof ball is her speciality!
Very happy to have gotten a new toy!
And always enjoying a nap or two or more!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Two weeks of Hppenings!

Hello, hello! Afraid I did not have much to visit about last week. But here I am again. I finished up the slippers and laprobe. It will go out Monday.

That is all the crochet I have to show you this week. I do have a lovely sunset from the other day.

Oh and let me show you my short girl problem! Yep, that dryer is a tough reach!
Speaking of dryers, I ordered some woolzies and they arrived today. can not wait to try them. They last and last and last!
Jack got my curtains hung in the hobby room and we finished up hanging everything on the walls as well. It is a wonderful room! I love to sit in my rocker and look out at the pond and trees. A great place to pray and meditate.

And now for the Sylvia show! Just being herself and loving life!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings!
