Cyber friends

Ok ok ok! I have the best cyber friends out there! See the cowl? I was sent that for Christmas by Stitchy McFloss and the little heart pin was sent by Betsy. I'm so lucky and blessed to know real friends on the net. Jesus is everywhere!

Here's my sweet sweet little Teacup. Isn't she pretty? Don't mind my tree I'm going to decorate it for Valentine's Day on Feb. 1st. Do any of you keep your tree up all year like me? Haha I'm weird I know! I just like decorating it for all seasons.

Remember Jer. 29:11-14
Pray for America
Pray for Isreal
Pray for Peace
And remember to pray for yourself!

Late CHRISTmas gift

My sweet friend Vicki sent me this very lovely cowl. I just love it! And the colors are so me! Haha
Wow I can only wish I can someday knit as beautiful as her. Thank you my sweet Sistas!

On another note my friend Dani is having a giveaway on her new site and for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it, but you can go to her blog at She makes the sweetest tags. And oh yea she also sells tea towels designed with whatever you want on them. She made me some awesome kitchen tea towels with red roosters. I use them everyday.. Go check her out you may win a cool gift.

CAL for 2015

Here's my first CAL for 1/2015 it was a quick make and very lovely doily.
I so enjoyed making something quick and challenging all at the same time. I kept making the same error over and over. But I kept frogging until I made it correctly!

I'm coming down with a little stomach bug and would appreciate any prayers if you can. I know it won't last forever but I just don't like being sick. No energy for anything not even crochet. And that depresses me wouldn't it you?

Ok I'm off here I may make me some nice big pot of chicken veggie soup. What do you make to eat when your sick? I always make chicken soup, no rice or pasta noodles just lots of veggies. Yum!

Be blessed and remember Jer. 29:11-14...

Setting it right

Ok I was wrong! Haha it's not even a full day in the new year and I'm admitting to being wrong. Oh well! Ok these are the colors my afghan CAL for 2015 will be.

Impeccable Soft Taupe
Impeccable Chocolate
Impeccable Claret
Impeccable Clear Blue
Van as Choice Silver Grey

There was a big sale at Michaels so I went and bought what I needed instead of using my stash. Hubby said that since this afghan was for us I could buy what I needed. Yippee! What a great hubby.
  The Sistas will start our afghan the beginning of Feburrurary. Would you like to join us?the pattern is Bruges-Edged Round Throw from the Spring issue of Crochet! Magazine of 2015 .

Come join us I'd love to see what colors you would all choose. I sweated over color choices. I'm not very good at color, I pray maybe God would bless me with color choices in the years to come.  Be blessed my Sistas enjoy your new year and remember to take care of you.
Crochet away...

Ending 2014, beginning 2015 oh yea!

These are the colors of my new afghan I'm making along with my Sistas for 2015. I think it's going to be a real pretty afghan.

This is Buster loving his Christmas gift from Santa. He goes between him and Teacup.

This is my Buster in all his glory after a night of sleep! Sorry about the messy house, they love the chaise lounger to sleep on. That's Pickle up on it with all the blankets tossed aside

Be blessed in te new year my peeps! It's going to be a doozy of a new year!

Jer. 29:11-14

Be strong, carry on.

Family love

Here's a little pic I just fell in love with. My little Teacup is the cute little brown one all curled up on Santas lap.

Here's my little Santa set I made for the cutest 6 pound girl born on 12-14-14 she's my sister 2 nd grand daughter. Don't ask me her name all I know is it starts with a Z. Haha but I've never heard of it before, so it's differant.

Here's little Z right after spending a few months in a cozy warm womb. She's so sweet. I want to make her an afghan I just don't know what colors I'd like to use. Any suggestions?

Ok my friends I'm off to make some Christmas items for my family. Are you still working on your gifts?

Merry CHRISTmas and a very Happy New Year to you all!!

Santa and me 2014

This is our neighborhood Santa. Santa and I donated blood. This is the first time I have donated in quite some time and got real light headed and real sick to my stomach. Have any of you ever experienced that sick feeling after donating. If it happens again I'm going to ask them what's up!

I've been blessed by God with good health and strong blood, I like to share it. I did find out a couple weeks ago I need new knees if I plan to keep walking haha! So in June I'm going in for one knee then in October im going in for the second knee surgery. Please pray that I zoom through it or should I say breeze?

Be blessed my sweet friends and enjoy your CHRISTmas. Remember why we celebrate and share with others, even a smile will be a great gift.

Be blessed and 
Merry CHRISTmas to you all!
