Home again

We got home from our Hawaii trip yesterday.  WOW! I love Hawaii.  It was beautiful, again.
This was the view from our hotel balcony.

This is my cute husband. 
He didn't know I was taking the picture.

This is the black sand beach near the south end of the Big Island.

These are pictures of the north end of the Big Island.

This is the sunset from our balcony.

This is the Mustang we rented for the 9 days we were there.

I received these two lovely outfits from the girls in MA's
Barbie Group.

We exchange outfits throughout the year.  August is my month
this year.
Aren't they wonderful. 

These last pictures are some of the WIP's that I
finished before we left on our trip.

This is what happened to my garden while we were gone.
We have a bunch of beautiful tomatoes and other wonderful

Another wonderful weekend

I've spent the weekend watching television and crocheting.  Whoopee! 
I sit in the rocking chair and crochet.  GAWD!  I'm glad I learned to crochet.
This is what I have been working one.
This is what I do with sock yarn.  It makes lovely Barbie clothes.

These are little flowers.  I don't know what I'll do with them, but I had fun making them.

These are fingerless gloves.  They are fun, too.

This is a shawl that I made to learn this stitch.  I enjoyed making it.  I may give it to a friend.

This is another shawl.  I have made this pattern before.  It's Granny Motif Mania Wrap from #313.  I loved this yarn.  It's so soft.  I love the way the colors are working out.
