Finished my shawl!

Here is little ole me and my shawl that I finally finished. I really like how it came out so nice and long. I crocheted a couple ties a little way down from the neckline so I don't need hands to keep it where I want it.

  And I am back to crocheting on my Variable Star quilt.  It was meant to be an Ohio Star quilt but I goofed up but it is still lovely I think.

The church we attend sent this lovely Easter Lilly for Jack yesterday. They are so loving and thoughtful.

Jack had a doctor appointment today and he sent Jack for x rays of both knees. He is worried that Jack's arthritis is causing the issue and that will mean weight loss and a knee replacement if that is the case. Jack is still on crutches and strong pain meds and now has to get support hose. Also he is not to stand in one spot for a long time once he is off the crutches. He is either to be walking or sitting and when enjoying t.v. in the evening he is to be stretched out on the sofa. So that is it for me for now. God bless and huggles.

Is it spring yet?

Sorry, still no stitching for me. Jack still needs a lot of help and can't really help with chores so it keeps me going. But here are a couple things I would like to share with you. This daffodil is usually the first to bloom each year. Nice to see it!
And this is our resident bunsie. It lives under the sheds in the back yard and I see it frequently. The other day it popped out for a nibble of grass between rain. Katie used to have fits when she was alive worrying that poor critter!

So that is my all to brief post. God bless and keep you. I will leave you with this song by The Eshes, several of whom were killed in a traffic accident this week.

Our Arkansas trip

Thought I would share this with you all.  Jack is not well so I don't have time for much stitching or posting.

A last post before...

we leave for a short vacation Thursday morning. After the last couple months we could use it! Been a bit rough but we will and are fine with God's help! We are heading for Lake Norfork in Arkansas.
So here is my shawl thus far. I am picking it up again and plan to finish it on our little trip. Jack took me to get a couple more skeins of yarn that I needed.
I have gotten some done on Rainbow bridge.  Working on the fish bowl and there will be a kitty as well then time to go to the next sheet of the chart.  Next post, I will take a picture to give you an idea of how long this thing is!
Now for some not so good news but here goes.  Stubbs and Snicks are back at the shelter I am sad to say.  We took them to the vet Monday for rabies shot, nail trim and heartworm test and general check up before leaving.  Sadly, snicks is heartworm positive and one of the many lumps on Stubbs is a bit worrisome.  Well for one, Jack and I are still paying off Katie's final bill and though we have generous friends who would help there, emotional we can not go through another illness and possible death.  See we found out the boys are older than five years, probably around 7 years which is fine but that combined with Snicks weight is not always could with treating for heartworms.
Jack and I bantered back and forth all morning and finally decided we just couldn't go through such serious things so soon after losing Katie.  The humane society will put him through the treatment and find them new homes.
So that is my news for now.  God bless and keep you.  See you Monday!  Huggles!

Puppers having fun and some stitching

Now just silliness and snugs!
God bless you and keep you and huggles!

Stitchin', paintin' and puppers

This is a scripture a friend asked me to do for them. it is nothing fancy, and the design is my own.
Here is some progress on Rainbow Bridge. Not a lot because I wanted to so the stitching on the above piece.
The boys napping together.
Snicks salutes ya!
He really didn't want to get out of bed yesterday.
Our deep thinker.
Napping on dad's leg.
This is an angel I bought on clearance awhile back. Always thought the pink sky & green stars was weird but I basically liked it. So I finally repainted it.
This is what it looks like now. The blue sky is way better!
