Almost October........




Rose pillow CAL
 I keep meaning to Blog more but get busy with things and forget. I've been doing a bunch of crocheting with some quilting and cross stitch in-between. The top photo is the

Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow

Rose pillow CAL
Trinity Mandala CAL 2019
 I really like working on it and learning new stitches. I made it in the same colors as my Trinity Mandala's from It's all in a Nutshell Crochet   
Fall Afghan
 I'm still working on my oldest WIP/UFO the Fall afghan I hope to have it done this year some time. Only a few more rows then I can start the border on it.
Moonshine blocks step 5

 I'm still plodding along on the Moonshine BOM Quilt on step 5 now and still love the fabrics and the design but life gets in the way and some day I will get it done.
Pumpkin 2019
 I have always wanted to make a crocheted pumpkin and there was a CAL on one this year so I decided to do it. I really love how it turned out and have it put out on my entertainment center already for Halloween/Fall. The link to the pattern for the pumpkin and leaves can be found on my Raverly page for it.


I've also been doing a bit of cross stitch again on my Halloween SAL

and started a new one the French Country Cottage

Hope to work more on these soon.
Well that is mostly what I've been up to besides dealing with life and family stuff that comes up.
Hope you all have a Blessed Week!

Back from Az...

Cosmic cal row 27
 Seems like I've been gone forever. Lots of things happened while I was in AZ and  I had to extend my trip for a whole month. Been home for a week now and cleaning up the house. I have had time to do some crafts in-between.
Scared Space Cal
 I started Helen Shrimpton's Scared Space Cal doing it in 2 colors. Also working again on my Cosmic Cal (first photo) Using black so it is a bit slow going.
New table cloth and flowers
 Got me a new table cloth for August and did matching flowers. Got the second block in the flora cal done.
Flora cal block 2
 Also ready to sew my moonshine BOM blocks just have to change the thread in my machine and clean it up some.

Hope things calm down a bit now that I'm home and I can relax a bit. Have a blessed week.

Finally got the yellow yarn to finish my UFO the Sweet Caroline pillow cover so been working on that again, picture above.

Can't believe it is almost Dec.....

Damon 3 weeks
 It has been a busy couple of month since the last time I posted on here. My Grandson Damon was born in Sept. Then when he was 3 weeks old he ended up in the hospital for about 5 weeks. He was a very sick little boy.
Damon 3 days
 He is home now and going better but still on feeding tube, not sure how long he will have it.
Buffy and Damon
 The girls are getting bigger and so cute.
Selene
 After being in Az from August til Nov 2. I came home to my son and other granddaughter Carly who are both now living with me.
Carly
 It is so nice to here laughter and giggling in the house again. As you can see with a  little one you have to baby gate the Christmas tree.
Brant and Carly
 I really like having someone else here since Hubby passed. We had a really wonderful thanksgiving. I cooked for the first time in years. and used my good china.  My MIL was here too.
Thanksgiving dinner
I've been in Christmas/Yule mode made Carly a stocking since she didn't have one.
Carly's Stocking
 Now working on one for my son.This one is going so much faster since I know what I'm doing lol
Brant's Stocking
 My Friend Sue asked me if she could finish this R&R since I don't stitch much anymore. She sent it back here last week finished. It is so beauitful. Now I have to turn it into a wall hanging soon.
Santa RR finished
So that is what I've been up to for the last couple of months. Right now working on stockings and things for Christmas swaps- which I can't post yet-  I'm not sure if I will make any other Christmas presents this year depends on how much time I have.
Hope you Blessed week! I will try and remember to psot more on here.
