New friends..

I discovered a new blog the other day and I just fell in love with her blog and writings. You can go to her site Stitchy MCFloss. She crochets wonderfully and tells the most treasured stories about her friends and crochet and knitting too!
Through her I discovered Vikki over at her blog By Hooks 4 U .She had just finished crocheting the most lovely doily called Debbie by designer Patricia Kristoffersen you can see her doilies and pretties over on her site she has lovely crochet goodies. But right now her pdf files are not working so I started making another doily from a book that I found at Savers Thrift Store from designer Margret Rost the book is from LA Round Doilies 1988. Its a pineapple design. I bought the thread from Vikki and wow oh wow did it fly through the mail. I bought the thread from her on one day and recieved the thread just a few days later. I love the color I had never seen this color before until I say it on Vikkis site. And Vikki has all the colors you would want so if your in need of thread go visit her site.
The doily Im working on is very nice and smooth, Im enjoying it quite a lot. When I do finish it Ill post a pic for you all too see.
Im still in the midst of redecorating my bedroom, closet and bathroom. We are all at a stand still Im hoping that they will start back up again next Monday.
Ok Friends enjoy your weekend and have a blessed time...

catching up...

Hi ya Peeps,
  Its been hectic around here to say the least.we had a flood in our master bath that went into our closet then into the bedroom. So we called Allstate our insurance and they came right out. Took pics then went away. when they came back to us they informed us that they would have to tear our all our walls andtile in bathroom due to asbestos in the walls.
   They took everything out(I forgot to take pics) I did get some pics of the closet after they finished how do you like it?
 The shoe box in the middle of the room is leaving and Ill just have a chaise lounge in the middle to sit on. Its cedar lined closet isnt it gorgeous. I can wait for it all to be finished
Heres the tile I picked out for the bath. its so nice I cant wait to see how it transforms my bathroom.and the little puppy you see wanting her pic takin is Teacup
