Getting closer to some finishes

Well hello friends! I am getting close to finishing my top. I have about six more inches I need on it so not much longer!
And I am pretty close to finishing the table cover also.
A couple test patterns of some crosses. Which ever is chosen by our church will be made in white and added to table linens that we use.

I got a few rows done on my afghan this past week. That makes me happy!
This does not make me happy! We spent last Wednesday at urgent care. Jack had an infection in his hand. It is better but flared up a bit the last couple days.
We have a little differently-abled squirrel that has a hand that is not quite right. He does just fine though! He is enjoying a peanut.
And here is Sylvia being Sylvia.

Today jack became Dinoman at Wal Mart. Made the employees laugh!
Thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings.

Big catch up post!

Well now I had meant to post the first Sunday of the month after church. However, Sunday morning I came down with a very nasty stomach virus and Jack got it later that week. We are just now feeling a lot better and hope to be back in church Sunday.
Now onto the good stuff! We decided we needed an outing last Sunday afternoon and went to War Eagle Mill. It was a nice cool day and perfect for it.
Love this old mill!
Not feeling super whippy but here we are!
We are down in a lovely valley at the mill! We will be up on the mountain to the right going out.
The mill wheel. They do still grind grains here.
 Looking down at the valley. Still not quite to the top.
This is the bridge next to the mill we cross.
I love this old cabin we pass.
In crocheting, I am working another cross tablecover.
And continuing on my top.

Some of the lovely things at the apartment.

Goodies arrived this month as well. Two pioneer woman picnic baskets that were half off at Wal Mart. It will help taking goodies to church. A new teapot to replace my old rusted one also arrived.

Sylvia was ever at my side while I was so awful sick.
Meet Skippy as we have named him. He comes most days singing for a peanut and is not at all fearful. I can get an arms length from him to give him his peanut. He is this year's baby.
This is girly squirrel enjoying her peanut she got from Jack this afternoon. She is enjoying it on our neighbors porch!
Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Cross Stitch and Sylvia Joy

Well, I did not feel like crocheting on my me weekend so I worked on my Name of Jesus piece instead.
And Saturday Jack ran to the store to get a couple things. He also came with a surprise of sunflowers for me!
And for those who missed Sylvia, here she is resting after a hard morning playing!
Thanks for all the wonderful comments. Unfortunately google no longer forwards them to me and blogger has been mean letting me reply to them but I will keep trying. For those who wondered, the mask is a little warm when it is humid and hot. However, the one way valves make it much easier to tolerate. So thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

It's a mostly white crochet thing!

Well I went missing again! I was sick the whole of July and Jack is just getting over a cold. But enough of that and onto the fun stuff!
The cross doily is coming along well.
I also have a big pile of hearts. Just a few more of them to do!
Coming along on my top as well.

My Jack hung up a shelf for the Raggedy family last month.
These are the brackets he used. We got them at Hobby Lobby.
We ran out of peanuts last week and one of the squirrels was not happy about it! she was all over the window, jumping on the front door and making a pest of herself!

Mr. Cardinal enjoying peanuts Jack put out for him.
And lastly, me making a fashion statement! Not really but I have to wear it when I go out to protect me from smells that cause the sinus infections.
 Thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings.

I was missing again but now back!

Missing in action again! Sick with yet another sinus infection! I have had one every month save June since November! I will be getting an anti-pollution mask to wear when I am out so hoping that helps. Smoke, some smells and pollen really get me!
But let us get on to the fun stuff! Since Sylvia has been in hot days hibernation I have not gotten many pictures of her so we will start with my girl first! Here she is helping mom on the computer.

She often loves a taste of coconut milk after I have my morning cereal. She then gets milk chin!
Our little squirrel friend came for a visit!
We have been blessed with more rain than usual this summer but it is so hot!
Now on to the crafty stuff! Finished up two dozen crosses for an order. Need to stiffen them!
And working on a cross tablecover for another order.

Also working on hearts for an order.
Sometimes I even take time to work on my top! It is coming along slowly but now I am working on the bodice and will soon be down to the underarm area.

So thanks for visiting! Huggles and blessings.
