Our week!

I finished up the baby afghan a day or so ago. I think it came out really nice too.  Just a nice size for a sweet baby boy!
Miss Sylvia Joy being, well, Sylvia!
Okay so I like to mix my own paint on occasion.  Usually do pretty good at it but not this time!  LOL!  I knew what I wanted, a nice light tan with gold undertones.  Had a small can of brown boo-boo paint from the hardware's mistake counter.  I thought the full can mixed with some leftover caramel color would do the trick.  Yeah, right!!!!!  Not a color I want to look at when I am in the bathroom or any other room for that matter.  I would tell you what it looks like but I think I will behave!
No problem with my mistake though!  I am not easily deterred!  I too a small amount and added it to a partial can of white.  Much better and that is what I was going for!  Stay tune for part two coming soon as I am trying for some more mixing fun to get a color for the lower bathroom wall.
So sleepy!  I think she would like me to take my camera and take a hike!  LOL!
Okay on to my squares.  I finished the 32 painted desert ombre color on the left and now I am working on the bi-color next to it.  I need 64 of those and 64 red and white.  I may end up running out of the painted desert though.  We will see.
So now you are up to date with what is going on here.  Huggles and blessings.

Some craftiness going on here and sleeping too!

I needed to do an afghan for a precious newborn baby boy. I had limited yarn and no funds to buy any so I decided to attempt my first round afghan. Boy is it fun and fast!!! I started this yesterday and once you get the foundation rows, you don't even need the chart anymore. Find the pattern here
How does that girl tie her self up so and then manage to sleep?  I would have a permanent crick in my get a long
Jack whipped out a couple smalls the other day.  Cute aren't they?
A lovely sunset taken a few days ago.  Love how it glows thru the trees.
And here is Jack's last supper.  He is nearly done with it. I can not wait to see it.
So that is it for this visit.  God bless and huggle.

Where HAVE I been?

I have been crocheting away. Here is a big pile of granny squares. 120 to be exact. I decided to do up all the remaining squares I need and I wanted to get the biggest amount out of the way.
Jack and I also decided last Sunday afternoon to go to our local park and also Camp Galilee. Camp galilee is a wonderful, beautiful camp for kids and they have other events as well. It is owned by the Methodist church. I have been asked if Jack and I are Mennonite. We are not but we share many of the same beliefs and chose to live simply and quietly. I chose to cover and dress conservatively because I honestly believe this is what God called me to do. I am the only one in my family or church to cover. Please feel free to ask me any questions about my life or beliefs and I will do my best to answer you.

Sewing, crochet and a ride!

And I got an out and about apron made as I call it.  Took me a bit to figure out how I wanted to do it but I finally got it.  I will make some minor changes on the next one.
 And I finished up my other prayer shawl.  I get a lot of my free patterns here:  Caron Yarn
This pattern is called Belize Wrap.
Here is a link for this afghan I have been working on.   Happy Yellow House  Lots of wonderful, free crochet patterns.  The one I am doing is her Ohio star quilt pattern.  Hope that helps you Beth!  ;-)

Thanks for visiting!  God bless and huggles.

Crochet, crochet and more crochet!

I have put aside my cross stitch for now to finish some crochet projects. I have two afghans started and 2 prayer shawls.  This is one of the afghans I am working  on which is a variant of an Ohio Star quilt.

Finished up this prayer shawl and it will be going out soon.
I only have the edging to finish and this one will be ready to go out as well.  I am nearly done with it so hooray!
So now you see what I have been up too!  Huggles and blessings!

Unexpected absense!

I don't have any crafty posts this time and let me tell you why. Our computer crashed a week ago and come to find out the mother board had fried and we had to have a new one. We just got the computer back yesterday.  So here is Sylvia relaxing while looking out the window.
I played with some special effects with this picture of a tulip that lives in our front yard.
Had some fun with effects with this Sylvia pic as well.
LOL!  Jack was teasing Sylvia with bits of leftover yarn and I caught her yawning.
Sylvia says, "Well it is called a catnapper recliner, so what's the problem?"
Sunset pictures from the past weekend.

And my favorite Sylvia picture!
So be blessed and huggles to all!
