Long Time No See and a finish

Sorry I have been gone so long. We have been under a lot of stress in finding a different place to live. One without a long walk to the car and no stairs to navigate outside. It is not safe for jack when they are ice or snow covered. We think we will be getting a place soon so please pray! All the apartments here have long waiting lists, sometimes 8 or 9 people waiting for an apartment that may take several months for one to open up.
Now enough of that! On to some fun! I have two finishes to share. I finished up the Names of Jesus piece. it will be going out soon.
And today I finished up my afghan. It will be going out soon also. Again, it is called Rings of Change.

So I really thought I needed to start another shawl. Sylvia steals my other one quite often! Can not remember the pattern name right now. It is from an Interweave Crochet magazine though.

I also got a new book at our church bookstore. Looks to be interesting and we will be reading it together in the Ladies monthly meeting at church.
I am right now crocheting on some hearts and crosses for two dear sisters who are my facebook friends.
Got stared down by one of my squirrels wanting peanuts. Yep, I gave in and gave her some.
And here is Sylvia having a nap for you to smile at!

Thanks for visiting! Huggles and blessings.

I'm sorry you have to be moving again, but hope you can quickly find something more suitable.

Such a lot of beautiful craft work! And Sylvia has good taste in stealing your shawl :) xx

I love your work, the colours in your shawl are beautiful.

I miss your posts and I'm glad to see your latest projects. Pictures of sleeping cats are my favorite!

Hope you find the perfect apartment for your needs.

I did smile at Sylvia. May God bring you the perfect for you home as soon as possible. Be safe, God bless you!

Aw, bother, I thought you were so happy with this new place! Too bad the walk is a bit much. Here's to finding an even better place.

Love the Rings of Change finish. The Interweave magazines (both crochet and knitting) really have some fantastic patterns in them so I'm sure your shawl will be lovely and not stolen by Sylvia! :)

Your blog articles are always missed, I know I look forward to reading your thoughts, and news, seeing your lovely needle work, hearing about Jack and seeing photos of Sylvia’s antics.

Thanks for posting a photo of your latest finish of "His Name is Jesus". Do you have a good photo of this one pressed? Liked your color choices, do you remember what they were?

How are you, Jack and Sylvia doing. I have you guys on a post it note to remember to pray for you. Looks like the big prayer need currently is for a new apartment!
