Let's have a visit!

I have lots to share with you! The morning glories are blooming! I just love the colors!
Jack teases me about herding my morning glories. LOL! I am just trying to get them to go where I want them to go! So there I am saying, "Let go of that other flower! Climb ALL the way up the string and quit grabbing your neighbor. No, not THAT way, I want you to go THIS way. Could you please just hold on to the railing!" Hee, Hee, so now it is confirmed that I am not all here mentally.
Okay, a couple funny pics of Katie doing what she does best--sleeping!

At last my progress report. I was almost done with my tree when I took this pic this morning. now he is done and on to the house! That will put me close to the halfway point once I finish the house! Yippee!
I am making this doily for my neighbor. She provided the thread and I get the pleasure of crocheting with it! She doesn't know how to crochet with the thread so I am happy to do it.
My afghan is coming along. Funny how that dark purple looks more blue when I take a photo of it. The actually colors are off white, pink and dark purple. I am almost to the end of the bottom and will start working up the side soon. These type of afghans are not worked side to side but diagonally so it takes a bit of getting used to plus this pattern has a LOT of color changes. it is slow going most of the time.

So there you have it. All the news thats fit to print around here. I will be visiting you guys in a little bit!

What a pretty and different afghan. I love the red, white & blue! My mother use to have morning glories and I loved them. We've never planted any.

Dear Michelle. I may say that the great joy of this saturday afternoon is to discover your blog and to browse through it. I like what you do. I'm a French Christian woman whose blog is written bot in English and French : http://bibleenbroderie.com
I mostly use my crafts to let people know the Bible. Recently I launched a little enterprise to be able to organize exhibitions with cross stitched pannel about the Bible, and other items too, and to organize workshops, in churches for instance, as a way of letting new people coming in touch with churches. I also sell a few items dedicated to cross stitch and the Christian faith as you can see on the blog of the enterprise called the Workshp of the Dove http://latelierdelacolombe.com
I wish you a very blessed Sunday and I'll come and visit your blog again.

Just popped in to say Hi and to catch up with ya!
You know I've noticed that some of my Red Hat friends have a dark purple on that always shows as a blue in pictures...blue must be a predominate color in the dye do you think?
You do such awesome work!
:)

I wish I had planted morning glories. That is really lovely. I also feel the need to crochet...it's been quite a white. I love the doily and the afgan...as well as the cross stitch. You are so talented!

You are a very gifted and talented lady. All of your projects are beautiful. I can tell that Katie love to take naps. I have a tabby cat Rocky, and that's the way he is when it is time for us to do any type of work. : )

Have a wonderful new week !

Oh dear, I talk to my plants too.

I remember when I was working on this monstrous latch-hook for my mother. It required over 12,000 stitches. UGH! I posted the stitch count on my blog almost every day.

I do the same thing with my climbing vines. I want them to cover the whole area, not just one spot. I'm jealous... Mine are barely out of the ground, let alone blooming.
