I finished up three items earlier this week. Here is the shawl for my friend.
And the baby blankets for the twins to be born soon.

I also am again working on my tablecloth. Sure does feel good to work on it again.
And I found this interesting ripple afghan pattern. Reminds me of tumbling blocks. I will do it in black, coffee, teal and cream. Here is the link if you want to try the pattern. Rippling blocks
And now my little brush monster! She has learned to like the brushing so much, she wants her bum and tum floofed!
Smiling Sylvia!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings and I will have some cross stitch to share next time.

Just a little cross stitch!

Just the least little bit of cross stitching but it is something! Working on the basket in the middle.
And nearly finished with both baby blankets too! Just the border to do on them now. I will swap the colors to do the borders and help them go together.

 Nearly finished with the black shawl as well. Just a couple more balls to go and it will be done.
Jack has been feeling rough with his knee and foot again but enjoyed rolling up some yarn. He loves doing it!
A very lovely sunset the same night we had a bad storm roll thru and a tornado got a bit close. No damage here though.
Sylvia is inspecting the linen closet. Still the same as last time she was in there.
Preparing to wash the acreage! LOL!
And just being Sylvia!

A finish and some cross stitch too!

At last I finished up the tablecloth for my friend. I then soaked it overnight in vinegar water to remove some age staining. Here it is but it does need an ironing but I have no ironing board right now.
Managed a bit of cross stitching too. Not much but anything is better than nothing.
And lastly, Sylvia in one of her uncomfortable looking sleeping positions.

Crocheting Away!

My crochet is keeping me quite busy. Just not feeling like cross stitching. Allergies eyes to not make good cross stitch partners either! Been playing with a doily for later.
Got two baby blankets going for twins expected by a sweet friend.

Trying to finish this doily too. Even though it is not overly large, it is done in sc so there are a total of 78 rows. Been working on it off and on for some time.
And making a shawl requested by a friend. Halfway done now on it.
But my big push is the tablecloth for a friend. I have only to do the points on the last rounds of pineapples and the edge. I am so excited to get it done for her.
And now for silly Sylvia!~

Busy, busy!

Been a busy week. I have been putting all my printed out patterns in notebooks. Four filled!
Need to buy a couple more notebooks because I still have this!
Here is my little mystery crochet along project. Haven't had time to do the third part yet.
And I finished a little throw of odds and ends for the rocker too.
The little angel is now all stiffened and ready to fly off to her home. She is going to someone with a lot of serious health issues.
My goodness we had a beautiful sunset this week after a night and day of rain. It was so beautiful!

And the trees here are starting to flower. Our winter was so mild that the mowers will be mowing our yard next week!
Now for some Sylvia sillies. Here she is enjoying a nice rub from dad. She was purring up a storm!
And trying to watch me while I crocheted. Poor thing's eyes were just too heavy!
And I will leave you with kitty toes!
Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

A stitching we will go!

I got a little more done on my cross stitching the last couple days.

I also joined a mystery crochet along and did the first piece of it yesterday.
And finished up the angel. Not my best picture but anyway!
Our neighbor's puppers has to be everywhere his dad is. So he had on his little sweater earlier this week while dad was working in the garage. We just love bosley the dog!
And of course, Sylvia is being Sylvia. Just couldn't wake up this morning!
 Trying so hard to be cute. It is working!
 Just gets up for a nap, eats a bite and naps again. What a life!
