60th birthday has arrived

Well well well I made it to 60 years old. Can you believe it? I can't!
I'm having a blast tho. Terry took me out to Capos which is a local speakeasy steakhouse here in Vegas. If any of you come to visit me we will go there, it's so much fun! I didn't eat steak tho I had meatballs and mashed potatoes, yum with marinara sauce! So good!
What's your plans for the new year to come? I'm going to do more knitting and crocheting! I have plans to finish the Lords Supper I started a few years back. Let's hope I can get it done this year! Hahaha
I bought a wonderful book over the Christmas vacation it's called The Power of Prayer, it's a devotional I just love it. It kinda teaches you to pray and get closer to God all in one little book. I love it.

Jan 1  but whatever was to my profit I now
Consider loss for the sake of Christ.
Philippians 3:7

Prayer has to do with the whole being of a person. When a person prays, he does so with his whole nature. When he receives benefits in prayer, it involves his whole being.
The largest results of praying come to him who gives
Himself-all of himself, all that belongs to himself - to God.
This is the secret of full consecration and the sort of praying
That produces the largest fruit.

Dear Lord, I want to give myself to You completely
In prayer so that my life can produce the largest fruit for
Your glory. Amen.

Be blessed my friends in the new year and all the days to come.

Peace to Isreal
And to

Huge pumpkin 2015

I made this jumbo pumpkin for my dear friend Lisa. She had surgery and I nursed her overnight. She was a great hostess and I wanted to give her some thing to remember me by. This pumpkin worked up in a little more that 2 hours. I loved making it. I can't wait to make more!

This is a little pic of what size you can see how big it was. 

Happy October everyone. I love fall it's so cool and showy in nature. I love Spring as can find the pattern for the pumpkin on Ravelry if you want to make one. The pattern is free.

number 12

Here I am in all my toothy glory! Haha
Two weeks ago I was sitting on the couch watching tv and munching on corn nuts. As I was munching away I bit down on 2 corn nuts at once, and I promptly heard and felt my number 12 tooth crack! Yikes I thought I heard the world crack it was so loud in my head!
I went to the dentist on Tuesday and they too X-rays and looked at it with a camera. The doctor said he could not see where the tooth was cracked and maybe I was lucky and just bruised the gum really bad. On Wednesday I felt the tooth moving around in the gum. On Thursday I called the dentist and he said the gum was badly bruised and it would tighten back up on the tooth in a few days.
Well I was scheduled to travel to Colra on the next Tuesday bit the dentist said all was well. While in Colorado I developed a huge blister on my gum inside and on the outer side. My friend was scared for me because my cheek was swollen this was on Saturday. I gargles with salt water and took pain meds till I came back to Vegas on Monday.
I went to see the dentist on Tuesday and he took another X-ray but this time you could plainly see where the tooth cracked. It didn't crack vertically but horizontally! The doctor told me that in all his 31 years as a dentist he had never seen a tooth crack like mine. Ha I'm one of a kind!
Sunday the top part of the tooth feel out. And today I went to a surgeon to have the rest of the tooth removed. I also went and got a temporary bridge put on. Wow I didn't know that they did the bridges right away. I like it because it hides the hole in my gum.
So the al to ristorante is DONT eat corn nuts and kill your perfectly good teeth.
As you can see in my smile my bridge hides my missing number 12 tooth beautifully.
The dentist gave me a purple necklace which holds my tooth. So see I got jewelry for all my troubles!

I don't recommend it!

2015 Charity lapghans

Charity lapghans getting stacked. I have 20 made so far. Actually we made 30 but donated 10 to the local VA for the vets. My goal this year is 40. I'm trying not to do anything else until these are done.

I went to see the War Room a couple of weeks ago and it was awesome. I highly recommend it. We went to see 90 minutes in Heaven today and we loved it too. Go to the movies my friends support faith based movies. The next movie will be called Captive, it looks really good.

What are you all doing? I'd love to know. Is your weather cooling down for you? Are you all on a new diet? Ok be good and remember to pray!

The last pics of CGOA conference 2015

This is Marly Bird and myself. Can you tell I was way giddy at meeting her. She was so sweet to me.

I just feel in love with this bag, I love the colors and texture I really hope they come out with a pattern to it.

This is me crocheting at Joes Crab Shack in San Diego right across the street from the ocean. I put my yarn ball in the waste bucket to control the yarn. I was making a cowl with the new Red Heart yarn I think it's called Unforgettable. It was so pretty and lush ours to work with.

This is a amethyst ring my honey bought for me, isn't it pretty? I've always wanted a big purple ring to wear around and now I have one.

I'm in the throws of cleaning again. I have so many boxes to go thru. I'm planning to finish up by Thanksgiving, I don't want to have any boxes left in my house. I want everything to have a place. Do you know what I mean?

Be blessed and enjoy the rest of summer because before we know it winter will be upon us all. 

Remember Isreal in your prayers and our great nation too.

These are some of the items that crocheters submitted. I love the big pumpkin and little doll. The doily is one of Katheryn Whites doilies, she won a ribbon for it it is so pretty! I love all the items the dress was lovely and so much work it was awesome. The little pillow was worked up in thread it was so pretty.
I really didn't want the conference to end! Terry said that he felt that crocheters are the nicest people he has ever met. He really enjoyed himself being only a few men at the conference! Lol
I hope to be able to attend in a few years with my grand daughter.

The doilies won several prizes and they were so pretty. Her cardigan which I'll post a pic later was beautiful. She does awesome work. I could only dream of being close to her work.

Ok I missed showing a pic of our Pickle dog. Isn't she cute? She lives on our chase lounger.

I got this awesome stain glass for free in the neighborhood. It's as big as a door. I'm going to clean it up and hang it in my den! Love it!

This is my latest doily and the vase is a little doily too. I made two of these for my tables

Ok I'm showing you very big mess! Sorry, this will be my new craft room it's will be someday my craft room. I have so much stuff that I need to shed so we will see when this gets done. This room use to be my guest room but since I never have guest I got rid of the queen bed and got a little couch bed. Now I have to get to work on it. Pics to come..

Remember to please continue to pray for our nation and Isreal! We are in great need of a revival in Christ!

a major set back

Ok here it is! A major boo boo I could cry but I'm not going to. I was over half way done on this Lords Supper. I figured I should complete it since its been over 2 years since I started it. I'm not going to try and patch it but I'm going to start over. I have no idea how this hole cam about since I kept it in a bag but oh well it just wasn't meant to be..
  If I can patch it without it looking a mess I will try but if not I'll start over! What would you do?

Isn't this magnolia flower awesome? It was on my neighbors tree and smelled awesome!

I found this pic and thought WOW!!

These were from my hubby on Mothers Day this year. He is so sweet to me! He even bought me shelves for my guest room that's being transformed into a craft room. I'll take pics when I'm done so you can see it.

God has been good to me I love Him very much and I thank Him for all He's done in my life.
Remember what He gave so we can live!


Be blessed my friends be blessed!

Busy busy busy

This is the angel that hung over the Blue Angel Motel on Fremont St here in Las Vegas. She was recently removed after being there for over 35 years. Isn't she awesome? The motel got torn down but they saved her!

I found this crochet case and am attempting to recreate it. It is so pretty. I hope I can do it I'll keep you posted.

I'm in the process of learning to sew. So far so good. I'm very new to it all. I'm turning my guest bedroom into a nice craft room. I recently bought a cute little dining table I'm going to paint to put my sewing machine on. I'll take pics when I'm done. I've been searching Pinterest for ideas. Do any of you have any ideas of what I need in my craft room? What's in yours?

Ok be blessed and continue praying for our world, it's in a mess right now and seems to be getting worse by the minute!

Stitches West Show

This was the door to get into the Stitches West Show.

This is what I saw first thing. Lots and lots of yarn goodness

There was lots of books but only beginning crochet books or crochet clothing books which I needed none of! 

There was so much yarn but very expensive. I could buy at any yarn store if I wanted. The yarn I was looking for wasn't even there, what a bummer, back to the net to get my yarn. I really wanted some cool crochet hooks or such but the only one I found was a glass hook size K which I wasn't interested in. I was so disappointed there wasn't even thread there. 

Lots of cloth items

This is the Knitmore Girls from the same name of their podcast. It's a knitting podcast but I really like listening to them. They inspired me to knit socks.

This will be the last show I go to. I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about. But it's really aimed at knitters or spinners no Crocheters. Once I saw it Im done.

Now I need to attend the Crochet Guilds Show maybe they will have what I'm looking for? What do you think?

Jer. 29:11-14

San Francisco trip

Terry and I at wharf waiting for Alcatraz cruise

Isn't it awesome, I'd love to be on this ship

This is the front gate going into Chinatown! I bought the most awesome earthy tea.

Terry having an Irish coffee, 

This is me waiting for the tram at Alcatraz.what else should I do?

This is the first thing I saw when I walked into the Stitches West show. There was very expensive yarn everywhere and there was not much of crochet items for me to purchase.

Here's a pic of the Knitmore Girls. I tried waiting in line to talk to them but it was way long. So I decided to skip it and just take a pic of them.

These are the seal lions at the end of Pier 39 they were all asleep

This is the big old sea gull waiting to eat our sourdough bread

This young lady makes these cute sourdough bears everyday we were there.

We had a really great time. I did lots of walking boy was I tired and my poor knees were not happy with it at all. But I'd do it again if Terry would like too.
My poor puppies missed us like crazy. Teacup would hardly eat and she sat where I sit the whole time I was gone. I don't have any idea how she will do when I go to our next trip for 2 weeks. Any ideas for support for her?
