Buckle Up, Here We Go Again!

I saw a lovely cross stitch that our sweet friend Vickie is stitching,  please follow the link, I'll be right here when you come back.  :)   Yes, it is a rather large picture for me to want to cross stitch. Yes, I know, I know...I rarely ever finish anything I start. Yes....(picture me making the motion with my left hand sort of like it's talking...yada, yada, yada...)...BUT  I wanted to make this for Hubby.

Trust me, that man puts up with a lot of you know what from you know who.  And truly, he is my forever and always. I am so truly blessed to have him in my life.  I honestly do thank God for him. So I thought it might be nice to make him a little something.

I have/had the magazine this design is in. It's the Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine from Spring 2016. Here's a little photo:

I turned the craft room upside down last night trying to find this puppy. No luck.  I still have a few more boxes to go through from my move back in December (don't judge me)...SLACKER...hey, who said that?  Anywho, I hope to go through them today.

Why do I always do this sort of thing?  I honestly could loose a bulldozer in an empty parking lot!

So right now, I am a little blue.....ok, I am totally mad at myself for this crazy butt stuff that I keep doing. I don't even think chocolate could make me feel better....hmmmm ok, yeah it could.   :)

Oh, and it's raining outside....storms tomorrow....CALGONE TAKE ME AWAY.   Ahem, ok, I am better now.  Just had to have that little outburst to make myself feel better.  Nothing to see here people, just carry on....just carry on.    :)  Now where did I put that bag of Dove milk chocolate pieces?

Wishing you all a most lovely day sweet friends.    :)

Monday, Monday......

Ok, now that you all have that song in your heads.......

Today, stared out rather sad for me.  I lost, misplaced, have no idea what, where, could have happened to my 1.65mm crochet hook. The one with the blue handle that was from Crochet Dude...the only 1.65mm crochet hook that I have/had?

I have been doing a secret filet crochet doily for Christmas 2017.  I am almost finished. I worked on it yesterday, put my hook down and now,  this morning, it is no where to be found. I looked under the cushions, under the chair (ok, that was not a pretty sight me and all my glory spread out on the living room floor with a tiny flash light trying to see under my lazy girl chair....note to self, sweep under lazy girl chair...oh, that is where that wayward Cheetos went.  Hmmmm)  needles to say I did not find my crochet hook.  Sad face here...really sad face.

I have no idea why the crochet hook Fairies hate me as they do. They are notorious for stealing my hooks,  taking them on long journeys,  giving me the impression that they will never be seen again, forcing me to purchase another hook...only to find the lost (stolen) hook a few days later.   Scalawags I tell you, they are scalawags!

Then I started to read my comments on my blog.  One super sweet lady is sending me a copy of a free cross stitch pattern that I admired (adored, want so baldy to start stitching, have been dreaming of it ever since I saw it, can't think of any thing else) on her blog.  Oh my, it's worked up all in pretty.

So even though the loss of my crochet hook bums me out....the kindness of a fellow blogger had made my heart smile today.   You know, the glass is always half full if you choose to look at it that way...and today my sweet friends, it's truly half full...might even be a little more than half!

Blessings to you one and all sweet friends.    :)

Wow, you live a good clean life and then the next thing you are a Quinquagenarian.  Hmmmmm

As you can see, I apparently, have way...way...too much time on my hands.

Sending out ((hugs)) to all of you my sweet friends.  :)

Thank You

I just wanted to stop by and say Thank You to everyone who was so kind to pray for Hubby and I. He is almost totally well now, just a little cough, but he says he feels much, much better.

I am so thankful he is better.

Thank you one and all sweet friends for your prayers.

Wishing you all a most lovely day.  ((hugs))

How I feel today.....y

Yep, I am giving you all the sad puppy dog face today.

I have started and yanked out (oh yes, yanked is the exact word I am using) and re-started a knitted shawl at least three times. I think I am just gonna back away slowly from the knitting needles and call it a day.

Hubby is still not feeling well. He's got a few days left of his meds and then after that we are gonna have to hunt an asthma doctor. Bless his heart.  I thank you all for your prayers and sweet comments. He's had this for over a month now. I pray in agreement with you all that he gets better soon.

I am headed back to the lazy girl chair to continue on my latest doily.  I hope to get it finished before the month is out. Snaps will follow, of course. :)

Wishing you all a most lovely day sweet friends.   :)

Flat Jack....not Flap Jack

It is amazing what you can crochet up with a little bit of yarn.  Go here to see what inspired me. I did not follow the pattern exactly, you know me, can't color within the lines!  :)

I call him Flat Jack, because...well, he's flat. Not Flap Jack, but Flat Jack.

Hubby is doing about the same.  He says he feels a little better, so that is something to be thankful for. I think our next step will be an asthma doctor.  Thank you all for your prayers. They are most welcome and truly appreciated.  :)

Happy Sunday Sweet Friends!

Thank You So Much

 Thank You to everyone who were so sweet to pray for Hubby.  He seems to be feeling somewhat better he says, and we have yet another appointment Friday with the doctor to make sure he is on the mend. I wanted to say Thank You and how much I appreciate that you took the time to pray for him. Bless you all for your kindness.

He is the heart of my heart.  Mere words,  are but a poor substitute in expressing my love for him.  So Thank you my sweet, sweet friends.  :)

Wishing you all a day filled with much joy and many blessings.   :)
