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

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!

Monday is Thanksgiving here in Vegas

Here's my wonderful fireplace keeping me toasty warm. It's been really cold here in Vegas, not like the East but cold all the same!

Here's little Sissy protecting my seat from me! Haha she loves sitting where I sit.

This is my tree this year. I bought the loveliest tags from Dani over at A Stitch in Time. The rest are red and white ornaments I made a couple months ago.

1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well before many witnesses.

Romans 12:12
Rejoice in our confident hope.
Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying!

Be blessed my friends and enjoy your Thanksgiving. Don't stress be at peace and ride it all in Gods blessings.

my world according to me...

 This is Terry and I enjoying dinner with our friends Debbie and Dan who were visiting us from Colorado. We had such a great time. I wish I could enjoy dinner with all of you!

 This is my finished baby blanket I made for my nephew Chris's friend who just had a baby, which lives in Colorado. Do you think I have connections with Colorado! Hahahaha it's beautiful there but very busy!
This is a picture a friend of a friend took while flying by! I is so awesome I just had to share with you all. Looks cold or cool what do you think?

I found a new verse in the bible I just love I hope you enjoy it too!
 Thessalonians 4:11
"Make it your goal to live a quite life,
Minding your own business and
Working with your hands
Just as we instructed you before.

Pray for all who are struggling with cancer and losing their homes. I also would love prayer for a friends nephew who is struggling with a deep depression his name is Jeff.
Thank you for praying and thinking of those that need it!

My very first knitted sock!

Ok here it is, all by itself! My very first knitted sock and my very first knitted item! Wow I cannot believe that I actually knitted this little sock. I have started the second one too. And I feel like I might know what I'm doing! Haha I really enjoyed the process of knitting, that I want to start knitting a lot more. I've already started making a dog sweater for my Teacup. I really think that I enjoy the not knowing what I'm doing, and then learning to knit. Wow what a rush to learn something new and exciting to learn more.

Here's my little sock footrest. Isn't she cute? She likes to sit at my feet and she loves it even more if I rub belly with my said foot. Does your babies do this too?

This pic looks like I've got my foot at her throat but I really don't. I'm not even touching her. She is my little kitty cat. She is so soft that she reminds me of how soft cats are.

It's voting time here in Nevada so I went early! I hate all the ads don't you?

Please continue to pray for our nation.
Pray for Isreal
Pray for all Gods children
Pray for Peace

Doilies and Tea

Here's my sweet grand children. Alex, Riley and Izabella. They all took a birthday trip to Disneyland over the weekend.

Here's my bounty from them. Alex brought me the sweetest black tea from Disneyland. It is so good, very tasty. Yum!

Here's my finished doily from doing Scottys blog. It was hard and it was challenging, but I loved it. So fun even tho I had to rip out several times.
The bottom pic is where I put the doily on my living room dining table. It is so pretty. It only turned out to measure 18" I used a size 4 steel hook and 10 thread. I was confused on the instruction but having the picture helped a lot. Thanks Pammy Sue for a great CAL!

Colorado trip fun

This is my trip to Aurora, Colorado to see my friend Debbie. I've known Debbie since elementary school. We grew up and wild together.

When I arrived in Colorado Debbie found out that the town was having a Yarn Crawl. I have never heard of that. So Debbie took me around to 4 of the stores, there was over 25 stores participating. wow Las Vegas has only 2 yarn stores. I was so excited going to each store. I'm standing in front of Tea for Ewe, they served fantastic Earl Grey Lavendar tea with some awesome cotton yarn! So much fun!

This is a shawl made from Quincy and Co. Piper yarn shawl, it's knitting so I need to learn knit this shawl. The store was a yarn store and quilting store in one. It's called Fancy Tiger Crafts. They were fabulous so nice.

We went to Garden of the Gods. And we went to see the Balancing Rock. Debbie talked me into climbing up there to take this pick. I know you can't see it but I was wearing my flip flops. I held Debbie's hubby Dans hand all the way up there.

Please pray for leaders of our wonderful country. And pray for Isreal.
Pray for all Gods children we need Him now more than ever!

Grand daughters delights

 I've been working on my grand daughter Izabellas 17 th birthday gifts. The owl slippers are for her. And the sock monkey slippers are for my other grand daughter Alex, she loves monkeys
Here's the tote I made Izabella. I ordered her some cook books one for baking and another for general cooking. She is really getting into baking so I thought I'd buy her some tools to help her along the way!  I made Alex a tote too but forgot to take a pic. I made her a knitting tote while I was in Montana a few years back and she used it a lot now that she's knitting up a storm. Well some low life stoled it from her friends car while they were getting lunch. So I made her another one.

Ok here is the evidence that I've been knitting! Haha it's my little sock, I'm in the middle of doing the heel. The little grey piece is a piece knitted by Alex she was learning to do cable work. She did an awesome job. She didn't know what to do with it because it was too small so I asked her for it. I'm going to frame it. She is getting so good at knitting!

Ok peeps pray for our world and all Gods children.

Lazy day today

The top pic is Sissi responding to the air conditioner man. Because last night at 2 am in the morning my air conditioning caught on fire! I called the fire dept and they searched the house and said the air conditioner burnt up. Boy was I happy my house wasn't burning up. As you can see Sissi and Teacup are exausted from being up all night.

God has blessed me by watching out for me that's for sure!

Crazy butt cactus

Here's my crazy butt cactus in full bloom. This was 6 am this morning. It is so pretty. I'm thinking it blooms at night. What do you think?

These are my little barrel cactus one of my neighbors gave me. I can't wait ti see these in bloom!

I'm so worried about our world and my country, but God keeps telling me not to worry that He is in control. Are any of you worried too? I'm delving into the Word and learning to give my worries over to Him.
Please pray for Isreal and all Gods children!

Ok part 2 of busy day..

This is suppose to be a gift for a friend . But it's not coming out right! Eyikes!

 Here are the pics of the bag I bought off EBay for my knitting. It has a lovely bouquet of flowers on each side. Made in filet crochet, the Irish rose and leaf was made by me because little Sissi chewed a hole in it the day I received it. She just knew mommy needed to put her own touches to it!
