Stitching towards Christmas

Jack and I are pretty low key at Christmas and don't even always buy presents for one another.  We bought each other a little something this year.  I love the colors he picked out in the crochet thread.

Here are the doilies I am working on this week.  I actually finished up the white one tonight.  Sorry the first is a bit blurred.

Have a blessed Christmas!  Huggles.

How about more doilies and Sylvia fun?

Well most of our snow and ice are gone now.  It was slickery looking out there for several days!  We stayed safely tucked inside and enjoyed our hobbies.

Here are some potholders I made as a present for a friend.  she likes bright colors so I think these will do the trick.

Here is my little blue doily.  I had to put him aside today until after payday so I can get some more thread.

Here is the smallest white doily.  I put the larger one aside for a week because I am having issues finishing the last couple rows.  Two blows to the back of my head and a stroke in my thirties left me with headaches and memory issues.  I will get it finished though!

 Lastly the little multi colored doily.

Sylvia and I were having a tug of war with her yarn and I got this fun shot of her!

Thanks for visiting.  huggles and blessings.

Crochet, kitties and snow!

Well we had quite the weather Thursday and Friday with a lot of sleet and then a good amount of snow.  We love the snow but could do without the sleet.  Lots of schools and businesses closed and lots of churches closed this weekend.  Here was the view out our front door.

Now on to the crochet.  The first one I am showing is a couple rows from being done.  I could have finished it up but needed a break.

The smaller white one is coming along well also with about nine or ten rows to go.

Here is the parakeet one.  Not sure how many rows left on it but the pattern is so easy it goes quickly.

Jack treated me to more thread so I bought three spools to make a large doily.  The color is called Monet and it is really pretty.  I just had to start something with it!

Oh dear me poor Sylvia!  Passed out waiting for mom to dish out a couple treats!

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Busy, busy crocheting!

Yes, I have been keeping busy crocheting!  My beloved Jack and I, and of course Sylvia, are always home on holidays so I can keep right on having fun!  Here is the first doily I have been working on.  It is called Starflower.

I work about two days on each one and then switch.  Here is the next one I rotate to.  It is called Splendor On the Table and is the largest of the three.

Last, but not least is one called Goldstar.  It is the smallest I believe.

Well, I think we need a Sylvia moment.  She is trying to be invisible under the jacket and also loves to hide there when we play with the laser light.

Thanks for visiting.  Blessings and huggles.
