Dang, Times Flies....

I can't believe it is already almost July. I got a new front door put in and made the wreath above for yesterday. I also got a sheer curtain for it which I really like.
I have been in AZ with my daughter, future SIL and granddaughters for the last couple of month. It was fun but wore me out a bit.  I love this picture my daughter took of me and the girls.
me and grandbabies
I was there during my daughter's Bday which was fun, she had a vampire themed party and we all dressed up for it and played games.  I was also there for my Bday and got taken out to Red Lobster for dinner. As you can see by the picture my daughter is going to have another baby and while I was there we found out it is going to be a boy, so I'm getting a grandson.
my BDay
I'm still cleaning up things at the house and redoing others. I miss Hubby everyday and it isn't easy being without him but I'm okay.  I've been crafting again, kind of lost the heart to do any for awhile since Hubby loved my crafts and helping me pic colors and designs. But I'm still working on the MM CAL
MM CAL row 63
I also started another of Helen Shrimpton's designs the Cosmic CAL, this one will be more colorful. I really like the bright and cheeriness of it so far.

Well that is all for now, I hope to try and blog more often now as I really miss it. Hope you all have a Blessed Week!

I'm slowly learning...

New mini wall hanging
 How to live without Hubby, it isn't easy and I have my days when I just want to run away and hide from everything. It is not as over-whelming as it was 7 months ago. But I still have so much to do with cleaning up the house and yard. It seams as if it will never end some days. But I'm getting there and the house only has 1 more room to clean up and the stuff in the yard. Which most of it can wait til my Son gets here.  I have been doing some crafts again. I wash a wall hanging I had that was a mix of cross stitch and fabric but it fell apart in the wash. I made it before I really learned to sew. So, I made it into 2 separate ones, the picture above and the unicorn picture below.
Resewing for wall hanging
 I also joined in the swap from my Quilting group on FB PQM and I made this lovely bin for my swap partner. I really want to make another one but bigger.
PQM Bin Swap 2018
 This is the one I got I really love the fabrics on it. I'm using it now to hold my cotton yarn.
Mine from the swap
 I'm still working on the stocking, kind of hung up on how to do the heel. I will figure it out someday when it clicks what the pattern is telling me to do.
Halloween SAL
 I been slowing cross stitching again, I really need to get a stand as it hurts my wrists to hold Q-Snaps and hoops anymore. But that aside this is really fun to stitch. It is from Lakeside Needlecrafts The Halloween SAL.
AZ Cal part 1
 I'm also doing the Arizona Cal, I got the yarn pack from Wool Warehouse as a pick me up for myself. I'm still on part 1 but you can find the links to the free pattern here Pippin Poppycock
Spring Kitchen Cal
 I'm also crocheting the Spring Kitchen Cal by Snappy Tots, it is a paid pattern on Ravelry. I'm having fun making this towel so far.  The stitch is really easy and love the look of it.
Part 9 of MM Cal
I'm also still plugging away on my MM Cal, I'm almost done part 9 on the last row. So I will be half way finished. I think this is going in the living room when finished as it is huge already and heavy.
I've Also been learning to cook and freeze things for later in the month as most recipes are way to much to eat. But my cooking is a whole other post lol.
I hope everyone has a Blessed Week and I will try and blog more soon.

I think I forgot how to blog...

 It has been so long, Things are still being straightened out since Hubby's death, I will never be the same but learning how to live by myself. I made these covers for my kitchen Tea and Coffee makers.
  Been only crafting a little I did make me Valentine cup cozy in my wedding colors. this last week.
 Also very slowly trimming the Moonshine blocks I had done, so I can finish step 4 I think.
 I did start cross stitching again, it has been helping me relax, working on the Halloween sal.
I hope everyone has been doing good lately.
Have a Blessed Week!

been a long time since I've posted......

I've been very busy since my Hubby passed away on July 28, 2017. My world has been shattered and turned upside down. I'm slowly putting the pieces back together. I went to AZ in August and helped my daughter while she was in the hospital til Buffy was born. Came home last week after Hurricane Irma hit Florida and I could finally get a flight home. Not much damage to the house which is awesome.  haven't done much crafting lately, I did make a baby blanket for Buffy while I was there will post pictures in another post.
Hopefully things will start getting semi-normal soon and will be able to post more.
Have a Blessed week!

Dang time is flying by...

MM row 56
 I can't believe it is already going on the 2nd week in June. I've been crocheting a bit still working on the MM CAL on the 56th row and the long stitches are not easy to do so may take me a bit to get this row done. Have to do it when my hands aren't hurting much.
Atlanticus part 1
 I also started the Atlanticus (not sure if that is spelled right) CAL doing mine in browns and purples.
Cheap Thrill step 2
 Got Cheap Thrills step 2 done now just need to cut them to finish.
Moonshine step 4
 Also need to finish trimming step 4 of the Moonshine quilt and then sew them together.
Filet cal finished
 I did finished the Filet CAL and I love the way it turned out. Also made some plastic canvas plant pokes for a swap.
P.C. Plant pokes
It has been raining her a lot and since my doctor took me off the one medicine I've been having a harder time dealing with it, but we need the rain.  Can't believe my Daughter's B Day was last Friday and mine is next Friday already.
So I hope everyone has a Blessed Week!

Happy Mother's Day...

Filet crochet
 I hope you all are having a wonderful Mother's day. Mine has been quiet but I did hear from both kids and got chocolate from Hubby so I'm happy. I've been learning Filet Crochet. It is so much easier then I thought it would be. Doing a wall hanging that says Home Sweet Home, I'm just now starting on the word sweet.  It takes awhile because I'm not fast but it is relaxing to work on.
Mini sal
 I am also doing the new Lakeside Needlecraft & Durene Jones SAL you can find the group by clicking on the name if you would like to join in. They just released the border part.


Made a crochet sunflower, need to finish the other flower I'm making also, didn't think it would end up this big though. I do like it.
Cheap Thrills part 2
Still working on Cheap Thrills and Moonshine BOM's.
I also started working again on my oldest wip my Fall afghan. One day I will finish it.
Fall Afghan
Oh and I'm going to be a grandmum again sometime in late Sept or early October. So another baby blanket to make soon. Well that is all for now. Hope you have a Blessed week!
