Chaos and Crochet

Sorry I missed you all last week. It has been hectic, with moving things into storage from the garage. It is not a lot, Jack's tools and such he will not need at the apartment. We got the call that we have an apartment for May 1st. It will be wonderful and we are excited! Our apartment is at the back of the building overlooking trees and a large pond. It is also on the second floor which we were hoping for! So we are finishing up packing and clearing out the hobby room first. For a time the living room looked like a warehouse!
But I have managed some crocheting too. Working on snowmen for an order.
Finished up my double Take doily as well.
And I tried out the first motif for a placemat called Pampering by Elizabeth Hiddleson.
Sylvia is enjoying having her bed in the living room during the daytime.

And that, my friends, is life around here of late! We have two more pieces of furniture to go soon as well. But weekends are for resting and that is what we shall do. huggles and blessings.

Having A Good Week!

We have been busy this week.  Dragging furniture to donate into the garage. The sectional was the worst to get out! We will have gotten rid of seven pieces of furniture! This is our living room for now. We will get a sofa after we move in May.
I also have been busy crocheting a new doily on the weekends. It is called Double Take by Elisabeth Hiddleson

Last week we had this...

This week we have Bosley across the street napping in the sun.
And Sylvia in the window and soaking up some sun.

That is my week! Thanks for visiting. I am trying to get caught up on my blog reading but things are getting more hectic as move time draws closer. Huggles.

Crochet, tornadoes, hail and snow!

Hello again! Been a wild week weather wise but more about that later. I have pictures of the finished Twisted Comfort Lovey. I am quite pleased with her and have even started another.

Also finished up and stiffened hearts for an order.

And I finished my rug. Jack likes the colors, I am still on the fence about it. I used what I had around here so slim pickin's!
Now about that crazy weather. We had this glorious sunset last week and that night a tornado warning! No damage here but there was some in other areas.

Then a couple nights ago we had a thunderstorm warning and hail.
Now today we are having a little bit of snow after a day of rain! Never a dull moment!
We got this chair yesterday for fifteen dollars. Now we are donating the sectional so we do not have to move it. We have a rocker and this chair to sit in until after we move in May and then we will find a good used sofa.
Now time for a little Sylvia! "Helping" make the bed!
The monster at the end of the hall.
And taking plenty of naps!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

My weekend Doings!

For my weekend me time I am making a lovely. The pattern is by Inger soto.It will go to my hubby's cousins wife's granddaughter. Did that confuse you? Ha, ha! If you want to see what it will look like you can go here ->Twisted Comfort Lovey  I will finish her up tonight as I have only the head to finish and attach. The curly bit is the hair. Sorry the blanket picture is blurry. Sometimes my tired old camera gets cranky.

I had Sylvia compoany today to help. Here she is begging to play, so we did until...
Fell asleep.
She has been a lazy girl this week.

And happy as we can always tell when she spreads those kitty toes!
Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.
