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.
 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.
 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.

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.

It has been a Year......

 I can't believe it has been a year today. The pain is still raw and like nothing I've ever felt before. I miss your everything and no words can describe the depth of how I feel even though I try.

People say I've been so strong in this last year with everything I've been doing. It doesn't feel that way when I'm just trying to make it one day at a time, some days one hour at a time. And half the days I don't know what I'm doing or how the day went by already.

I can't cry or scream for fear I would lose it all and never come back.... what I wouldn't give to have one more hug, smile, laugh from you. Even just to know that you are somewhere in the house or outside tinkering on your stuff.

Today I will fulfill one of your wishes and pray you are at peace.
I Love you Always, Heart & Soul.

Been Crocheting......

Cosmic Cal part 1
 I've been busy crocheting and doing house stuff.  I started the Cosmic Cal this month. I love the colors of it and it has really nice stitches in it. I made a page for it so you can click on that at the top of the blog to see progress pictures.
MM Cal part 9
I also finished part 9 of MM CAL it is getting so big almost takes up all of my kitchen floor and I'm only 1/2 way done lol. It is a true labor of love and takes a long time for me to do but I will finish it.

Fairy Bride getting ready
I also printed out the HEAD pattern Fairy Bride that was RAKed to me and picked out a piece of cloth big enough for it. Now I have to put it on scrolls and grid it. I also need to work on my Halloween SAL but I have to frog some of it first
Halloween SAL
 Then I pulled out my SUTO wip from the retreat I went to, really want to finish it. It is a pattern by Thea Dueck so has lots of specialty stitches in it.
It has been raining a lot here so working outside in the yard is a no go. Everything is flooded right now. Which gives me plenty of time for crafts.
That's all for the time.
Hope you all have a Blessed Week!

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.
Cosmic Cal part 1 row 14
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.
