This little lamb ...

This little lamb was from a Leisure Arts booklet #800535 if your interested. It made up very quickly. I made if for my doctors nurse. I wanted to make a cute little toy. I gave it to her last week, I forgot to add the little cow bell to the neck. Oh well I'll take it to her later.

This is the back side.

Here's the front. I was going to embroider her face on but I decided to add the bits. I think it turned out so cute.

This is my little Sissi. She helped me by watching me in every step of the way. It's been so hot here in Vegas I'm just so happy the humidity is so low. I'm already planning for the fall and Christmas. I pray you are all staying cool and that you at peace.

I've been so upset with what's going on in the political arena that I finally had to shut it all out of my life. I was miserable listening to all the lies going on in the news. So I've opted out. I prayed and God washed me with peace in my decision. 
So I'm going to crochet and knit to my hearts delight. 


Rely on Jesus!
Pray for peace!

Gift to Dr. Charlie's nurse and one for Izzy

This is the little box I bought to put in all the crochet goodies for my doctors nurse. She is due to have a little boy join her family at the end of August. It was so fun to make all the little boy items. I do hope she likes it all.

Here it all its , in all its glory!

I made a little sweater, and some booties, with a toy and a hat to match.

This is the blanket I made. She didn't want just blue she wanted something he would grow up with.

I love the little box. Oh and the little booties in the top of the box was going to be for the baby but they are way too little so I made a little hanger for them.

These are for my granddaughter Izabella. She asked me to make some boot cuffs for her. I made one pair but they were way to small. So I made these I do hope they fit her. I like making them they were very satisfying to make easy Peasy one day crochet.

I've been wanting to make a knitted shawl for myself. I bought the yarn on my trip to New Orelans from the the Quarter shop.

I have plans to hopefully finish my socks I started months ago. I want to be able to knit socks mindlessly.

I'm so excited for the fall to arrive, it's been really hot this summer. And I'll be happy to be done with it. I'm gearing up to make fall items. Are you doing the same?

I have another trip to Colorado, but this time Terry is going to come with me. He wants to see Mount Rushmore and it's only a few hours away from Debbie's place. Debbie is having surgery this week please if you can say a prayer all goes well for her.

My bulldog Buster is having problems with his ears. I've tried everything but surgery for him. He needs lots of healing prayers, please?

Ok I'm off to shower and dress for the day.

My first Caribbean cruise

This is what greeted me in our cabin every day. There were different animals. I loved this one because it reminded me of Buster.

This is me chillin with my knitting. Our first stop was St. Thomas island. I loved it. We took a tour up into the mountains and stopped at several sites to see the island. It was awesome.

This is Lisa my friend who encouraged me to cruise. She was a great roomie. We loved everything the same! Awesome.

I had fresh fruit everyday in every meal I had. I loved it. The food on board was fantastic.

This was our ship the Norwegian Escape. We were on the 12th floor room 12896.

This is Lisa relaxing. She brought her coloring items and we sat out by the pool and relaxed.

Ok here I am loving our balcony. We sat out there and drank our coffee and tea and watched the world go by every morning. I knitted every chance I could out there.

Ok my friends if you ever get a chance take a cruise. It was so much fun! I hope Terry and I can go on an Alaskan cruise in the near future.

Live loved!

Summer fun!

This is my beautiful granddaughter Izabella. She is now 18 and graduating from High School on the 9th. She is so beautiful inside and out. She is a vegetarian and a crocheter. She loves to read and hang with her friends. I pray God bless her always with a happy and fulfilled life.

Ok this is what I've been doing since my last posting. I've been knitting mittens for Betsy Queen. She asked for some help and I took on the challenge. I've made 12 sets. Got a little bored and made this all color one. Do you like it? Do you think some little kid will like it? I'm going to make the other one now so you will no what I'm upto these days.
I'm still crocheting inbetween knitting but I'm learning, so far so good.

June 8th is Terry and mys 42 year anniversary. We are going on a little trip to New Orleans. Then I'm off to a Caribbean cruise with my friend Lisa. I'm so busy this summer. I have to plan my carry on projects carefully. I'm thinking one crochet and one knitting. What do you think?

Ok my friends I'll try and take lots of pics and be back here sooner than later.
Wishing you a very merry summer and try and stay cool! And relax it will be fall sooner than you think!

knittin at last

Are these lovely little sheep or what? They are so pretty. I'd love to have all these colors to knit or crochet with what about you all?

These are my very first knitted, yes I said knitted, mittens. With the help of Betsy Queen to get me to learn to make these cute little mittens. I'm hoping to make lots of pairs for Betsy and all the little ones who are so cold during the winter months. I live in Vegas and we just don't really need mittens so it's been fun learning to do them. I actually feel like I know how to knit and understand what I'm doing.

Don't mind the mess behind the little knotted mittens. It's just clutter and I was too lazy to ge p and move it all.

I'm going to take pics of my craft room for you all the before and after pics. It's so packed with boxes of stuff I just really need to destash my whole house. My hubby would love it.

Be blessed my friends and enjoy your week

60th birthday has arrived

Well well well I made it to 60 years old. Can you believe it? I can't!
I'm having a blast tho. Terry took me out to Capos which is a local speakeasy steakhouse here in Vegas. If any of you come to visit me we will go there, it's so much fun! I didn't eat steak tho I had meatballs and mashed potatoes, yum with marinara sauce! So good!
What's your plans for the new year to come? I'm going to do more knitting and crocheting! I have plans to finish the Lords Supper I started a few years back. Let's hope I can get it done this year! Hahaha
I bought a wonderful book over the Christmas vacation it's called The Power of Prayer, it's a devotional I just love it. It kinda teaches you to pray and get closer to God all in one little book. I love it.

Jan 1  but whatever was to my profit I now
Consider loss for the sake of Christ.
Philippians 3:7

Prayer has to do with the whole being of a person. When a person prays, he does so with his whole nature. When he receives benefits in prayer, it involves his whole being.
The largest results of praying come to him who gives
Himself-all of himself, all that belongs to himself - to God.
This is the secret of full consecration and the sort of praying
That produces the largest fruit.

Dear Lord, I want to give myself to You completely
In prayer so that my life can produce the largest fruit for
Your glory. Amen.

Be blessed my friends in the new year and all the days to come.

Peace to Isreal
And to
