Im doing pretty good

Well friends,

Im doing well since my mishap with the crochet hook:) What a farse that was! I still love my crochet hooks I have to tell you. Ive been crocheting 7inch squares for a friend of mine over at the Hooks n Grannies group. She had an accident and turned her ankle and she pulled all the tiny blood vessels and some how or another she got gangreen(sp?) so they had to amputate her leg from her knee down. So sad for sure. I pray she has a rapid recovery and that she copes with it all with Christs peace about her. We in the group decided to make her an afghan so she can cozy up with. The colors are blue and cream. Very lovely for sure. So now you know what Ive been up to. What have you all been doing?

I still have yet to get a new camera but I will someday. Im just being a little laid back about it and Im having a hard tome deciding on what to purchase. If you have a nyt suggestions write me ok? I need all the help I can get! heeheehawhaw. Im going to go through some pics of mine to post here and see how you like them oe of them is my baby Fifi's rearend,isnt she a doll? She thinks she owns the whole house I can tell you that!

Stabbed by my crochet hook

I had a rather rough day yesterday. I took my mother n law to the doctor and I waited in the waiting room for her and I was crocheting flowers for my daughters wedding in thread. I was using a new hook that I had just purchased off eBay. I believe it was a size 8 steel hook with some beautiful clay wrapped around the handle. Then one of her doctors came to me and wanted to see me. The doctor informed me that my mohter n law has breast cancer again. And that my mother n law had decided not to fight it. My mother n law Ann went through a very hellish nightmare around 6 years ago to battle that terrible cancer. She did agree to have a biopsy and a pet scan to see how far the cancer has grown. I if you could please say a prayer for her. She is 73 years young and very stubborn.
Well back to the crochet hook. I just poked it into my thread ball and laid it in my purse. I put the purse on the floor of the truck and then proceeded to get into the truck then I put my leg right over the hook and got stabbed! In the left calf right above my ankle. YEOW that hurts. I have never hurt myself before with my hooks. SO plase ladies be careful.
Ok now you know what Ive been upto these days

Been keeping busy


Ive been keeping myself busy crocheting. I know you just cant believe that but its true! I went yesterday and bought several skeins of Vanna Whites new yarn. Im going to try and make myself a little bag with the colors I bought. I got some handles from Jimbo a whole ago and I thought I would see if I could use them or not. I might not because they are rather woodsy and these colors just might not go with the woodsy look:) Hee hee Am I making my self clear? Nope I think not. Heres a pic I took awhile ago of a bag Im thinking of making. It was on sale on eBay and I tried to buy it but I lost out so I took the pic and thought I would try my hand at copying the pattern. What do you think. I did pick differant colors and Im going to make some differant insides. So it wont be exactly like this one Ill take pics and we can compare when Im done hows that?

On the camera idea I have yet to find one I want. There are so many of them out there to choose from. My daughter did show me how to take pics with my cell phone and load them up to the computer so Ill try that next time to see how that works out for me. Wish me luck:) heehee

Boo hoo


You will not believe it but my camera has died! Yep Its gone. Now I need to purchase a new one. Now my issue is which one to purchase. Since taking pics for my blog here I know I want one that will take close ups and show details of my crochet. Now I just need to search out for the right one.

Now because I dont have a camera right now I wont have any pics for you to look at. Well except the last couple I have that I took before my camera died. So here they are.

The first pic is of my new crochet hook. I got it off of ebay and I just love it. It even came with a really cute wood ring as a thank you gift. It came from Costa Rica. And it came in its very own hand made wooden box, I just love it.

The second pic is a pic of one of my roses my daughter had me make up of her wedding coursage. She wants all her flowers to be crocheted. So Im trying differant things to make them look nice. She now wants to get married in Hawaii maybe aon a cruise ship. So I wont have to make as many:) heehee what fun!

Ok Ill be back again real soon camera or no camera. Ill let you know what Ive been up to crochet wise. Happy crocheting!!
