Hot Off the Hook – April 2019

I have to say I wasn’t to crazy about these colors, but the bigger it got the more I liked it. After all, my favorite season is the fall. I think its one of those times like when you try on a blouse and realize that it definitely looked better on you, then on the hanger.

I used 3 skeins, called pumpkin spice by Caron Cakes. Trying to bust my stash…and this was my first try at a 10 point star, I’ll definately do it again just maybe not so big.

1 Skein 33″

2 skeins 46″

3 skeins 56″

Hot Off the Hook – March 2019

I have just started my 6th crochet project! What, a busy month! I have found that when my anxiety is up, I crochet ALOT!

I am really into a particular designer for crochet, Bonnie Barker of Bonnie Bay Crochet. I never thought I would attempt her designs because they look so difficult. Guess what? They aren’t! Who knew! Lol if you know the 3 basic stitches (SC, DC, TDC) then you can do it. Beleive me, of I can do it, YOU CAN TOO!

Show me what you are working on…

Heres some pictures…

Happy Hooking my Friends❣

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❣
