Happy Friday!

Well, I finished the afghan repairs and it is on it's way home.  Sylvia Joy helped me finish it up.
Even with the work around here, after a couple days of no stitching or crocheting I got fidgety and found something to entertain myself with using the yarn left from the afghan repair.  The squares are not to difficult and about 12 inches so it has been quick and fun.
We were blessed with some beautiful sunsets of late.  I can not wait to move and be able to get better pictures, nor will I miss the four dump trucks driving by at dawn just 15 feet from our townhouse! Living next to a storage place is not so glamorous.  LOL!

 We have pared down so much stuff that it is all fitting nicely in the dining room.  Bringing things downstairs little by little is easier on it.  Then out the front door it will go and no running upstairs after things. This is before the last four small pieces of furniture come down and the head and foot board.  Not all of it is boxes here.  My dining table and two dining chairs and a cd cabinet are buried in there too.
Silly Sylvia time now.  Wallering a t shirt that escaped the clothes basket.
Watching television.
Being cute.

And napping.
Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

A Few Fun Pictures

No stitchy or crochet things but some fun pictures.  The pine tree out front is growing with warmer weather.
And we received a blessing in the mail.
And here is a wonderful od firetruck in Lowell AR.
Hand over the treats dad!
They don't really think I would volunteer to ride in that, do they?
Helping mom crochet
And the daily belly rub.

What happened? LOL!

Been running like mad around here so that is why I disappeared.  We were offered a duplex by our landlord with only a new deposit to make the transfer.  We were planning to move after an incident with our neighbor and this was perfect timing!  Well, except for having enough money!  LOL!  Set up  a gofundme account and was able to get enough money to help in that department.  We will have to move ourselves as movers would cost nearly 600 dollars!  But someone is moving the sectional for us.  So busy, busy now.  Here is the duplex.
Saw this guy down the street hoping for a birdie snack.
Oh I did do some crocheting!  Made this guys for someone as a fund raiser.  They are so cute!
The trees and flowers are lovely here now.  This tree is behind our townhouse. 

 Redbud trees along the street.
And now the great and wonderful Sylvia Joy!

Don't think I will be getting any crochet done the rest of the month, but I will be back once or twice before the move.  Huggles and blessings.

Busy, busy!

I have been working on owls for someone this week and will share them later when they are all together.  However, I have started sewing together my bedspread.  I like the colors with the black.
Today, Jack and I came up with a system to hang up our wall quilts jack has done.  We used command hooks, a dowel and clothespins.
Look at the lovely thunderhead from last evening.
And the moon was saying hello also.
Jack calls this a meeting of the birdbrain society.
Oh that Sylvia!!!!!

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Crochet and wicked weather!

Well, I am nearly buried in my yo-yo's!  And I nearly have done all I need.  I have 155 to do of the 640 I need.  Hooray.  I have been working on the first strip to see what it looks like.

Jack is back to cross stitching and working on some cute quilt squares.  His hand is not 100% but it is well enough he canceled his appointment with a specialist.  I believe it is on the mend.
Had some nasty weather Wednesday night.  Tornadoes all around us and very large hail.  We only got winds, lots of rain and some pea size hail.  The lightening was wicked!

And Sylvia has been, well, Sylvia.  She beat up a mouse and the tablecloth here.
Really enjoyed some belly loves.
Took a nap.
And loved on Jack.

That is our week in a nutshell!  Blessing and huggles and thanks for visiting

Peek a boo!

Not much crafty going on here.  Still doing afghan repair but I have done a few yo-yos and decided how I want to do the border.

Beautiful sunset a few days ago here.

And a lot of lazy cat naps too!

And window time!
