I Am Back

It has been a rough month so that is why you have not seen me for awhile. The first part of the month I had bad vertigo for four days. I did manage to post once after that but then things got worse! Jack's arthritis had him on the walker even as I was trying to recover from that vertigo. Oh but that was not the end of it! Oh no!!!! The alternator went out on the truck stranding us in another town. We got a jump and made it home but could not afford to fix it and found more issues with the truck so not worth fixing. Then Jack contacted this delightful, Christian, caring man. He goes by Mr. O.  Also pray for Mr. O as he has liver cancer.
This wonderful man got us financed for a wonderfully cared for 2007 Toyota Camry, took 1,000 dollars off the price and gave us 500 dollar trade in for the truck even though it was not running and had it towed in. Here is the car we now have. Never had we had one so nice!

I think Jack likes it!
There has not been a lot of crocheting going on with everything else happening but I have played with cables a bit in crochet.

And have since finished up this shawl for a friend.
I also have orders for several angels and snowflakes, santa ornaments and gingerbread men ornaments. And may have a couple or more afghan orders. So I shall be busy but we need the funds for sales tax. So now on to our silly, sweet Sylvia.

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Congrats on your new car, Mr O appear to be a lovely man.
I hope you're both feeling better now and can enjoy a bit of crafting!

I plead the blood of Jesus over both you and your husband for complete healing and restoration! May God provide the funds to pay for your car as well. It's beautiful!

Sylvia doesn't seem to have been bothered by all the troubles a bit!
Oh that we could be so calm in the storms.

o my, such an eventful time! I am glad it all worked out and you have a nice reliable car now. Love your crocheted cables too, I had found a pattern for a crocheted cable sweater that I found rather intriguing but have yet to brave it!

Your crochet cable is beautiful. I knit cables but never crochet them. Congrats on the car.

Vertigo is the worst! I get it as well, so I sympathize with your bout of it. Sorry for Jack's arthritis as well. So glad you got a good deal on the car. Lovely crochet -- I didn't realize you could do cables in crochet! Cute Sylvia brings such joy too!

I'm sorry to hear of the trials you both have had. I hope things will go smoothly along now. And Sylvia is adorable! Someone was just telling me about cables in crochet....impressive!
