What I've been doing.

This is what I have been doing so far this year.
We went to Jamaica the first part of February.
 

10 Wonderful days in Jamaica.

Then 3 beautiful days in St. George, UT


I made a very colorful shawl while in Jamaica

I made this one in January.  I love the way the yarn
striped.

I made this sweater from yarn I bought
in St. George, Utah

This is Rachel being silly in my new
sweater.

I had to make this hat just for fun.

These is my bunnies I made for my friends to wish
them a Happy Easter.

This is my Bobby.  She is my ever present muse.

Home again.

We just spent most of February in Jamaica.  What a beautiful place. 


I crocheted 2 pair of socks, but didn't take pictures of them.

We were home for about 3 days and then went to St. George, UT  for a UCLS conference.
St. George is in Southern Utah.  Russell grows to classes and I go shopping and site seeing.


I finished this shawl while on the trip to St. George.
I take my crochet everywhere with me.  If I'm not reading, I'm crocheting while I relax.

February 2014

January was busy for me.  I don't know what I did, but I didn't get to my blog.  Sorry.

These are some little wreaths I made in December.
I made about 100 of them.  I gave most of them away.
 
I rescued a Manx kitty.
When she showed up in our garage just before Christmas
she was so skinny that you could count every vertebrae in
her back.
Now she is healthy.  I took her to the Vet to see if she had a chip.
She also had a hernia about the size of a Ping-Pong ball on her tummy.
She is now spayed, hernia fixed, chipped and healthy.
She think she owns the place now.
She weight about 6.5 pounds and love to get loves.
 
She is smaller than the other cats who live in the garage.
She has no tail, and hops like a rabbit when she runs.
We named her Bobby.

 
This is a throw.
 
This sweater is two big, 6 sided granny squares.
It was fun to make.

This is two skeins of lace yarn.  I love the way it
stripped.  I used the pattern from Lyon Brand.  I have
used the same patter for about 6 shawls (so far).  My
friend Annie Toy suggested it a few months back.
Thanks, Annie.  I love this pattern.

 
Sorry I have been away for so long.

I'm here

Bet you wondered where I got to.  I'm still here.  Just very busy.

These are from the Craft Fair I participated in December 6,2013
Had a great time.

 

Socks that were ordered for Christmas.

Tiny wreaths I made for friends and family.

Legwarmers ordered just before Christmas.

A shawl I made just for fun.  It's from the Lion Brand LB Collection Silk Mohair South Bay Shawlette.  Pattern Number: 90489AD
 
These are my little grand daughters.
Lexi (5), Chloe (5), and Wendy (3)
 (
I kinda like them.
 
We all got together at Rachel's house.


 
Hope you Christmas was wonderful, too.

Cross for a friend

I saw this lovely cross pattern.  It's from Annie's Favorite Crochet Magazine, Vol. 2, Pages 4-6.
When I saw it, I thought of Janet Cross a friend in Iowa who collects crosses.  So...


 
It's 8 inch by 11 inch.
I put into the mail yesterday.  I hope she enjoys it.
 
 
Then I had to make an angel...
 


 

Rachel asked for a purple Christmas sock.
So here it is.
It's about 4 inches x 12 inches.  I hope this is what her wanted.

Just a little note to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends who read my blog.

I hope this day bring you joy and health.  May you always be thankful for the people and things you love.

I am thankful for all who read my silliness.  Thanks for being you.

Love to all,

November Craft Fair

These are Snow Man Gift Card Holders
The pattern is available form Lily Sugar'n'Cream
also on ravelry.


This is a snowflake doily form Red Heart.
The little socks are quite fun to make.

This is Ted (my little turkey).
And a scarf that didn't show well.

This is my table at the Magna Kennecott Senior Citizen Center.
Didn't sell much, but enjoyed the day.
Got to see what some of the world is up to, and talk to
a lot of very nice people.
