I found these little sheep on my couch this afternoon. I saw them on a blog named Aluajala's cockroaches. I liked them so I copied the pattern and made these two little guys.
Here's the site if you are interested: hhtp:// Good Luck.
I really enjoyed making them. And they don't take very long.

I went to lunch with my friend Lorene today. It was great. We met in Payson. That is about 70 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah. It was a very nice drive. I-15 is a mess, but the drivers were being good today.

This is a doily that Doris brought into our crochet class on Monday. I made one like it and wrote down the pattern for her. She said that this was in daughter-in-laws. They think her grandmother made it about 50 years ago. So they didn't have a pattern.
A million years ago, when my Aunt Letha taught me to crochet, she said, "If you learn to read a patterns you'll be able to make anything. If you only learn to take a pattern from a piece that is already made, you'll never learn to read a pattern." I guess she was right. I'm so glad she took the time and energy to teach me to crochet. I will always love her for that. She went on to her just desserts 33 years ago, and I still miss being able to ask her advice on what I am crocheting.

Remember...It is not what you have that makes you important...It is just being you.
Life is good.

Sunday, again?

WOW! Here it is Sunday again. The three day weekend is gone and I didn't do anything. I am getting so dull. I have made up my mind to do things during the week, because my lovely husband just wants to sit around home and do basically nothing. Sooooo, this week I'm going to ride the tram at Snowbird. I'm taking my camera and my crocheting and just enjoy the day. I think Wednesday will be a good day to do that.

The sun is shinning and the sky is blue. I love summer.

One more

I found another one. Her name is Bella. I got her picture in my tomato plant.
I thought I had seen the last of them. But this afternoon she showed up.
This is great fun.
Got Marie's sweather mailed off today. I hope she likes it.

My mind has wondered away. I thought I had something to write today, but alas, no earth shattering thoughts to share today.

Love to all.

New baby

This little angel is Wendy Loraine Tuero. She is my 21st grandchild. She was born July 8, 2010 at 4:30 p.m. She weighed 7 lbs. and was 18 inches tall. She's a little cutie, but then I am Granny.

So this is short because life around here is crazy.

See what I did.

This is Pam's sweater. I hope she likes it.

These are some of the aliens who have invaded my home. They are very friendly. They're are easy to talk to and never spread gossip. They don't talk much, but then...Who need a noisy alien?

The one is named Flower. She brightens my day when I see her in the morning. She sits on my monitor.

This one is going to live with Wendy. She said that she would like one. I just hope she doesn't multiply like the other have.

Life is good.

Now I have to get back to making angels, scarves, chemo caps, baby afghans, and Marie's sweater.

REMEMBER...When in trouble or doubt - run in circles, scream and shout.

Three done.

Marie's sweater is the only one I didn't get finished this week. Pam's sweater is so cute. I'm glad she asked for it. I had so much fun making it.

I'll post pictures next week, when Marie's sweater is finished.

I have to get back to my crochet hook. It's feeling abandoned.
I picked up some more yarn at the second-hand store the other day and it is calling to me, too. Gotta go.

Finished the baby afghan yesterday. I am making progress with the UFOs upstairs. I'll venture down to the basement, maybe, next week. I know there are more UFOs down there.

I feel like I am accomplishing something. I can pick up the crocheting and hold it in my hands. That is a very satisfying feeling. Besides that, it's a lot of fun. The aliens make my giggle. That kind of invasion is fun. And a very effective stash buster.

The wind is blowing today. It seems less hot because of the wind. But 97 is 97 no matter how windy it is.

I am working on Pam's sweater today. I love the pink yarns that I'm working with.
Marie's sweater is next. Then on to the basement, maybe.)
