Still here and still crocheting!

It was sure a crazy week! We were worn out by Friday. Monday we took Sylvia to the vet. Found out she had an upper respiratory thing going and was trying to get a secondary infection too. after medicine, she is a lot better but still some healing to do. Eating good now though. Then Tuesday was grocery shopping and Wednesday was the signing of our lease! Thursday we just took a ride and had fun! Here are some pictures of the flowers at the complex.

And I have been crocheting some. Finished up my pumpkin and cream doily! I will block it after we get moved.

Working also on a shawl called Snowflake Shawl.
And another doily too.
Can not forget Miss Sylvia. She has wanted to sit on her pallet by my feet the last couple days.
Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Sick Cat and Crochet

Little update on Jack's nose. Found out it was also broken up in the bridge area. Nothing to be done for it but let it heal. He now has a permanent bump on his nose. Now this week, Sylvia Joy is ill, eating very little and just not well. A dear friend sent money so we can get her into the vet. We are about tapped out with the move coming up and having to buy a new to use vehicle in October and Jack's accident! Sylvia is still being goofy despite being ill.

Speaking of goofy, this is Bosley across the street. He was out with his dad and the sun plum knocked him out!
A happy did arrive in the mail last week. I won fifteen dollars off at Katie's Mercantile and got this wonderful kitchen apron for just over ten dollars. I love it and there are no ties to fumble with.
Now for the crochet bit. I am trying to finish up this doily before we move in a couple weeks. I will get it done but not this weekend. So I will try next weekend to finish up. The colors are pumpkin and cream.

So that is it for us this week. Huggles and blessings. Thanks for visiting.

A Broken Nose and Crochet

Monday did not go quite as planned! We did our grocery shopping and were putting away groceries when I heard a loud crash as I was heading into the garage. I turned around in time to see cool whip and ice cream go flying and Jack's face bouncing off the kitchen floor. Blood went everywhere! It like to have scared the very life out of me! Once I got him some papertowels and he gathered his wits, off we went to urgent care not far from us. They x rayed his face and they thought only the tip of the nose bone was splintered a bit. We got a call Thursday after the radiologist looked at the films. He found another fracture higher up in his nose around the bridge of the nose. So off to see our primary doctor Monday to see if anything further needs to be done. Here is poor Jack after we got home Monday.

I have managed some crocheting! Finished this piece that Sylvia is modeling. It is called Hawthorn.
I also am working on this one today. I love the pumpkin color! This one is called Artist Tray Mat.
We managed to get a better picture of our apartment from the outside. That is it in the upper left corner. It is invisible from this location in the summer time because of the trees.
Look at this strawberry! The entire carton of them were big but this one sure was the winner in size. They were good too.
Lazy Sylvia this week.

And enjoying Jack brushing her.

Chaos and Crochet

Sorry I missed you all last week. It has been hectic, with moving things into storage from the garage. It is not a lot, Jack's tools and such he will not need at the apartment. We got the call that we have an apartment for May 1st. It will be wonderful and we are excited! Our apartment is at the back of the building overlooking trees and a large pond. It is also on the second floor which we were hoping for! So we are finishing up packing and clearing out the hobby room first. For a time the living room looked like a warehouse!
But I have managed some crocheting too. Working on snowmen for an order.
Finished up my double Take doily as well.
And I tried out the first motif for a placemat called Pampering by Elizabeth Hiddleson.
Sylvia is enjoying having her bed in the living room during the daytime.

And that, my friends, is life around here of late! We have two more pieces of furniture to go soon as well. But weekends are for resting and that is what we shall do. huggles and blessings.

Having A Good Week!

We have been busy this week.  Dragging furniture to donate into the garage. The sectional was the worst to get out! We will have gotten rid of seven pieces of furniture! This is our living room for now. We will get a sofa after we move in May.
I also have been busy crocheting a new doily on the weekends. It is called Double Take by Elisabeth Hiddleson

Last week we had this...

This week we have Bosley across the street napping in the sun.
And Sylvia in the window and soaking up some sun.

That is my week! Thanks for visiting. I am trying to get caught up on my blog reading but things are getting more hectic as move time draws closer. Huggles.

Crochet, tornadoes, hail and snow!

Hello again! Been a wild week weather wise but more about that later. I have pictures of the finished Twisted Comfort Lovey. I am quite pleased with her and have even started another.

Also finished up and stiffened hearts for an order.

And I finished my rug. Jack likes the colors, I am still on the fence about it. I used what I had around here so slim pickin's!
Now about that crazy weather. We had this glorious sunset last week and that night a tornado warning! No damage here but there was some in other areas.

Then a couple nights ago we had a thunderstorm warning and hail.
Now today we are having a little bit of snow after a day of rain! Never a dull moment!
We got this chair yesterday for fifteen dollars. Now we are donating the sectional so we do not have to move it. We have a rocker and this chair to sit in until after we move in May and then we will find a good used sofa.
Now time for a little Sylvia! "Helping" make the bed!
The monster at the end of the hall.
And taking plenty of naps!
