Hot Off the Hook – June 2019

Woo!!! What, a month!!! The hand surgery I had in May put me out of commission until about a week ago, but I did manage to finish a few things. One in particular is another special one that they have no idea is coming.

So its 40″ x 41″, done with 16 skeins (4oz each) of “Spartans” yarn by Lion Brand and weighs roughly 6 lbs. It started as another Study of Texture from Mikey at the Crochet Crowd. I had to skip some rows because I was running out of yarn, yep even after 16 skeins!

Here are a couple lap blankie I got done before surgery. Patterns were video tutorials by Bonnie Bay Crochet.

So what have you got on your hook?

Here’s my current WIP, that I’ll take on vacay with us…its another video tutorial by Bonnie Bay Crochet.

Camera Clicks – Flower of the Day

This is another photo challenge by Cee.

This flower vine is called Blue Pea. A very nice lady gave me some pods when she gave me some clippings of a Coral Vine.

I planted 6 seeds and 4 sprouted right away. They really are the coolest because the flower actually forms the outer pod for the seeds. 

What does it mean to me?

Morning everyone! So i read a post that has been stuck in my brain for a few days.  It askes “what is your blog really about?” And “How much time did you spend on you About page?” (Here is the original post: https://wp.me/p5oeKw-4c )

So, i went back and read my “About” page. I think i did a pretty good job explaining why i started this blog and my interrests. But I’d like to add this visual, if you will.

Have you seen the “Titanic” movie? If so, you’ll know what i mean when i say, Rose and Jack inspired me. You see, in the movie Jack encourages Rose to “Do” all those things she is curious about. In the begining of the movie Rose is 100+ years old and the story is told by her. What i noticed was she DID all those things she and Jack talked about.

So back to this blog.  Of course i want this blog to be successful and if you read up on how to do that, most advice says to pick one subject. I tried that, but in short i just didnt like that.  I have many interrests, like Rose, and i want to talk about all of them. I did identify a particular interrest that not much is written about but that doesn’t get many readers. 

So what I’ve learned thus far is the common denominator in all my interrests is Me. My passion, experiences and thoughts. I love Books, riding my motorcycle, crocheting, our grandchildren, shopping and a host of other things.

I am totally open to suggestions and would love to hear your thoughts. 

Our Lovie

So our granddaughter is 3 weeks old❣ WHAT, an amazing journey, so far. We are all twisting in the wind over this little being. I have seen so many amazing transformations in all of us, its been, well AMAZING❣😁

I love coming up with nicknames for the kids in my life. I have a Mooshka, who has the mooshiest cheeks, a Lizzy because she was always sticking her tongue out, a Ms. Thing because she was always in to something, a Princess PJ because she rules mightily, a monkey because he is all boy and i could keep going….but Lovie, now that one just struck me. I made a few “lovies”  while we were waiting for her arrival. And as these last few weeks have flown by she became our little security blankie.  We are all just so attached to her already. 💞

If you can envision a human pyramid with this little one being on the top with all the rest of the family holding each other (and her) up, this kid has one hell of a posse!

We are so incredibly humbled that all of her family members on bothsides, not only get along but truly are her village. To help make her one of the next generations greatest citizens, whatever her path.

Our Lovie❣
