I have been busy this week!

I do have some finishes to share. First this little doily.
And I am finished with the afghan for a friend. I do need to work in a few ends but essentially it is done.
I also am working some on a big tablecover for the coffee table.
I have taken time to make use of the tabletop easel Jack gifted me with to do some coloring.
Here is Miss Sylvia deciding the bathroom rug was a good place to act a fool!
And someone is hoping she can snatch some yarn!
And all that calls for a nap!
Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Just crocheting Away!

Hello! Sometimes I get so busy crocheting away, I forget to post! But here I am once again. The afghan is coming along wonderfully and will soon be finished and on it's way to it's owner.
Finishing up some snowmen for another person as well.
Oh and look at the nice surprise from a friend that arrived today! I simply love it and can not wait to do some coloring in it. Great timing on the arrival too. I have arthritis in my neck that causes the muscles to spasm and I have limited movement often. Well, Jack bought me a tabletop easel to make my coloring more comfortable!
We had sleet, freezing rain, drizzle and snow Saturday night. This was the view out my living room window Sunday morning.

And Sylvia really enjoyed herself in the sun coming in this morning!
Which called for a nap.
And ribbon playtime too!

Redo and More

Remember this doily? Well I tore the border out and am redoing it. I did not like how the flower with leaves between the motifs came out. I am much happier with it now. I am going to try and finish up some doilies I have in various stages of finish. We are moving this coming May into a smaller, less expensive and better cared for apartment. Really looking forward to that and having a nice area to walk in that is park like and a nice balcony to sit out on.

I am also making great strides with the afghan for a friend.
And there has been a lot of playtime with Sylvia!

Followed by plenty of naps!

A Little Doily Doings

I have been entertaining my self with painting a little side table. Nearly done save another coat here and there and the inside of it.
I also started a couple doilies. This one is in a color called eggnog and will be square with a pineapple pattern.
And I am about to finish up this one. I am doing the last border row. The flower with leaves in the valley gave me some fits understanding how to do it. I think I got it now!

And who doesn't need a little Sylvia sillies?

Light At The End of The Tunnel!

All the snowmen and santa faces orders are done. Hooray! I love doing for folks but I am ready to tackle my projects and I will be making afghans for a friend. I found a lovely color of crochet thread for two dollars at Hobby Lobby and am sneaking in a little crocheting with it as I work on the last few angels for another friend.

We took a ride Monday and took some pictures of some nice trees. The wind this week pretty much stripped them bare. Also parked at a grange building across from a lovely little cemetery.

Did you see the super moon this past week? I managed a picture on the second day.
And lastly, Miss Sylvia Joy taking her nap yesterday.

What Am I Up Too?

So today is a good day! I finished up the three dozen snowmen and have four snowmen to go on the two dozen.

Now onto what Jack has been up too! Still working on quilt squares.
And now Sylvia time. Here she is after a session of yarn wars.
And plenty of time for maxing out and napping!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Just A Short Post!

I am getting very close to finishing the large order of 3 dozen snowmen. 3 more bodies to crochet then 18 to do faces and hats and scarves. Then a couple small orders to finish. I have had about enough of that for awhile! LOL! I am also doing angels for a friend and hearts for another.

While doing our grocery shopping, I saw this interesting cotton yarn on the cheap. I was very curious to see what it would look like worked up so I brought it home! I rather think it is interesting and it will be a trivet for hot things in the kitchen.
I also found these cute cups on the cheap and had to have them!
Also this past week we found this curbside for trash pick up. It was a mirror but will be freshened up and a large cross stitch piece will go there.
We had a lovely moon with one of the planets this past week. This month's full moon will be a super moon!
And a lovely sunset as well.
Here now is Sylvia. She was upset I was not paying enough attention to her, so she threw herself down on the rug!
Then here she is just being her usual self!

Thanks for visiting! Blessings and huggles.
