My darling daughter Abbea saw this bedset on the site of Linen and Things before they closed so she bought it for me. Isnt it pretty?
The set came with the comforter, 3 deco pillows, and 2 sets of sheets , and shams

I dont have all the pillows that it required so I need to go out and buy more pillows. I need 2 26in square pillows so I need to go search:)

This is my daughter Abbea helping me set the bed up so I could take pics. The bed set said it was a California King and my bed is an Eastern King. But I was shocked when the sheets fit perfect. Oh well too cool for me huh?
Ive been crocheting as usual and I love crocheting like you didnt know that already:) heehee I called the UMC hospital here in town and they got back to me that they dont need baby caps right now so I decided that Im going to concentrate on lapghans this year and get as many done as I and Karen can do. Im waiting for a great sale on yarn so I can get stocked up.
I talked to Carol tonight and she really wants out of there and to get home soon. She is doing somewhat better but lets continue to pray that she gets more strength in her legs. She tells me that she must be a bad person if God is not getting her better so lets show her how wrong she is !
I went to a new pain specialest the other day and Im in store for some MRIs coming up in the neaar future lets pray they find out exactly what is wrong with my back and that I can start walking without all the pain. I asked the doctor to help me get off meds not on more so I pray he will listen to me!
Ok I better get back to Terry, Numbers is on and he wants me to sit and watch it with him:) So Im going to do a little crocheting too! OH happy day...

Ok friends heres a pic of a square of Alexandria new afghan Im making her for her 16th birthday:)
Heres another square. She asked for red and black for her colors and it turned out beautiful, dont you think?

Heres the finished piece. Terry and Abbea held it up so I could take a pic of it. Its big huh? I really like this pattern it works up really quickly I must say. I started it a few weeks ago and walla its done!
I havent decided on what Im going to do next Im debating on making another pillow so go with my afghan but I just dont know ...
I want to start with the charity for this year. Ive decided on 2 differant charities One will be the convelstant home I gave to last year Or actually it qwas Karen and I. And maybe makinaby caps for the local county hospital. I think it would be fun to do both this year. WHat do you all think? IM I biting off more than I can chew? or crochet?
Carol seems to be doing a little better she is trying to get up and move around. Please continue to pray for her legs to be strong.
Andrew is seeking a job at the water department here in Vegas lets all agree together that he gets it! Thanks you Jesus!
I lost another 7 pounds so Im still working on loosing. IM hoping as the weather gts better that I venture out and start walking so....Karen did you read that? heehee we will see!
I had lunch with the girls yeasterday and it was so good. I love mexican food!
Spring is in the air here and I cant wait. IM hoping to maybe plant some tomatoes this year but as Ive been told Im not very good at it so Ill just try and see what happens this year:)

Heres the ending of my new pillow, I just wanted you to see the hook that my sweet hubby bought me for my Christmas gift for 08:) Its solid silver and it crochets wonderful. The makers site is over at it ran about 100.00 dollars but I just love it. Its one of a kind too!
Heres another pic of the pillow and the hook:) You wouldnt believe that I ran out of the Vanna Choice Pea Green yarn twice once with the afghan and now with the pillow, I only needed a few inches but of course I went to Micheals and to JoAnns and could not find the yarn to finish it up. But I went Friday and tada there it was at Micheals. So I finished it right away and its looks great. See for your self! Do you love it like I do?I love this little pillow it goes so well with my afghan and it worked up really nice. I may make another one just because I have the yarn left to do so. I dont know... what do you all think?
Heres my new header pic isnt it cute? Its 2 Peas n a Pod Bride and Groom. I started them Sunday morning and finished them Sunday late afternoon:) I got the pattern off the Lionbrand site its a free pattern go check it out if you like it!

Ok heres a few updates I dont know or remember if I told you I started a really neat bible study from my church-Valley Christian Center. Its The Relationship Principles of Jesus written by Tom Holladay hes a teaching pastor at Saddleback Church and the brother n law of Pastor Rick Warren. ITs a really insightful study. If you get a chance to purchace the book get it its great!

Carol is still in the hospital and she wants out really really bad so lets all pray she gets strength in her legs so she can walk! Yipee lets see what Jesus can do!

Im in the midst of making a afghan for my grand daughter Alexandria. Shhhh...Dont tell her its a surprise. Its in her favorite colors red and blck Ill take a few pics and post the next time Im on here:)

Heres a cap I made a few years ago, I love it it has lots of color, do ya think?
Ok by popular demand :) My daughter would like to hear a little Leslie Gore and some Reba so here it is just for her! Enjoy

Oh yea Im still crocheting I had the kids here yesterday and they all wanted to relearn how to crochet Izzie learned to make a granny square and Riley and Micheal learned to make a chain for a necklace:) They wore them home. Im keeping Izzies in a keepsake box for her when she gets older.

Ok Im going back to crocheting Im making a new pillow for that 14inch pillow form I ordered and didnt use so now Im using it:) heehee
Please keep praying for Carol she is being moved today and she is nervous about the move, she really wants to go home. Please pray for strengnth in her legs so she can get up and move around!

Oh yea Happy Feburary can you believe its Feburary already? Only a few more months and it will be Christmas again. I have to start thinking on what charity Im going to do this year. Its between baby caps for UMC Hospital here in Vegas or maybe more lapghans for the convelesant home again. What do you all think? Baby caps not preemies that have too many of thoses right now they need just regular hats. I need to pray about it all ya think?

OH happy day...
