Long Time No See!

Well, last week started out wonderful but ended with Jack down with his knee so that kept me busy. We did get to meet with a friend we had not seen in 17 years when she came to town with her new boyfriend. That was a grand day! The rest of the week went downhill but we are doing better this week. Here is Judy and Jim.
All of us at Cracker Barrel taken by a sweet lady for us we did not even know!
Judy's darling doggie Sissy came to visit as well.
I have been managing to crochet and finished my friends afghan this week.

Working on snowmen another friend has ordered three dozen of. He needs his hat yet.
She also wants three dozen angels and another friend ordered twenty.
Okay now this yarn you will most likely hate or love. Jack bought it for me a couple or so years ago. I love it! It is what is called mill end and they are very inexpensive. I auditioned a couple patterns but nothing felt right until this week! I got a trial issue of I Love Crochet magazine. In there was a shawl with a four row hexagon I liked. My hexagon is quite a bit bigger and will become an afghan. The yarn is very soft and not so bad to work with. I will add hexagons in other shades using Lion Brand homespun.

And what, you ask, has the Queen herself been up too? well see for yourself.

And lastly, we have been having some lovely sunsets the last couple weeks.

Huggles and blessings. Thanks for visiting.

What Am I Up To this Week?

Well first I have been working on painting the inside of my little table. Need a couple more coats.
One more row done on the friend's afghan and another about ready to add.
Playing with a doily with a lovely color called eggnog from Hobby Lobby.
But most fun of all, laughing at a very silly kitty named Sylvia.

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Cold, snow and Crochet

We had a beautiful sunset the other day before clouds, cold and snow set in. Not a lot of snow but lovely to look at.

This week I have been crocheting washclothes as a surprise for someone.
And working on an afghan for another friend who ordered it.

And our Sylvia Joy has been silly and cuddly in this single digit weather. Kitty cuddles are nice, and I do not mind the cold either.

Huggles and blessings and thanks for visiting.
