Mother's Day

Well, I am feeling a little better. Still pretty miserable. Darn allergies. Sore throat and my tooth is still killing me. Sinus cavity is so full of pressure that it's pushing on my tooth. Grrr. That tooth is too expensive, it needs to stop!
I took some pictures of the gifts I made for my mom for mother's day. In fact, I used her new camera! Ha! I just bought her a digital camera and wanted to make sure that it was working properly before sending it to her. I think that it takes really good pictures.
Here is the rose bath pouf that I made for her. Pattern found at I made this from Peaches N Cream Cotton.

I also finished the hook holder that I was making for her. Patten found at

Well, the kiddo is sleeping and I should be too!
Good night!

home today

Well, I was home today. I thought I was having tooth problems, but thank goodness it was only a Sinus Infection! I was hoping it was not the tooth that was root canaled a couple months ago. Hurts pretty bad though and am miserable.
My sister's family was all sick this last weekend and nephew and neice photoed below had RSV. The baby was in the hospital. So, prayers for the family would be greatly appreciated. I think they are on the road to recovery now.
Did some crocheting today. Worked on a dish cloth at the dr office, almost finished mom's gift -- just need a tie for it, put a ribbon in Braden's blankie, and started something for one of my swap partners. I have my scarfs ready to send out. Hopefully that will be tomorrow. We will see how I am feeling...
Off to sleep now! Pleasant dreams..........

New Pet

Well, I just got a new pet. Nope, not a turtle! It's a cat! Isn't he cute! He thinks I am sad, so I thought I would put in a post that says I am Happy! I just got the name of my Secret Pal today and my Kitchen/Bath Swap partner yesterday! I can't wait to get their projects rolling! So excited! I have lots of ideas for the bath project as well as for my Pal.
I am still working on the hook holder for my mom for mother's day. I hope that she likes it! I bought her some hooks to go in it too.
I best get dinner started before hubby gets home from school. It's almost summer time which means he gets a break! I will be glad when Algebra is through! (So will he!)

Second Scarf

Here is the second scarf that I have made for my Swap partner. I hope she likes it. It is made from the feathers yarn that I got from Wal-Mart. It has chenille in it so it's super soft. Will have to make one for me out of this too!

This baby afghan is for a girl that I work with. Her baby, Braden, is due in July. It still needs a ribbon, but have not been able to find the right color. Hope he likes it! It is made from Red Heart baby. The pattern comes from the Simple Crochet for Cherished babies. Simple V-stitch, but I really liked the boarder.

I am also working on a hook holder that was posted on Crochetville. That will be a mom's day present for my mom. I think I might fill it with some hooks and things too. I think she will like it. She is always loosing her hooks. Or having to hide them from the grandkids and who knows where they end up.

My New Button!

I want to thank my secret fairy who sent me my new button! I love it so so much! My hubby helped me get it set up and linked properly. I was so surprised to find it waiting for me when I got back from church today!
I spent some time this afternoon playing with buttons and adding them to my site. I have a few that I look at frequently and am sure there will be more as I get to know more people on crochetville. I have some new pictures to take! I did not get them posted today, but will get it done this week.

Thank you!

Just a quick post before heading off to coma land. I want to say thank you to everyone for dropping by. I am really enjoying posting here. Belinda, I hope you found your way here tonight and welcome! The link I was trying to tell you about was
Still trying to figure out how to make changes to my blog. Trying to figure out how to make my buttons point to the correct links. HMM! I finally got a link for Crochetville on there. :) One thing at a time. Then I need to find out how to change the color! I know where to change it, but don't know what to change it to! And how do I make the pictures side by side? Lots of questions!

Sydney's Sweater Poncho

Here is Sydney's Sweater Poncho. She loved Molly's so much that I had to make her one. I also made a hat to match Molly's. I hope she likes it. I will have to get it off in the mail to her. The pattern can be found at Emerald Moon Creations. They have several child sizes and are now posting the adult sizes. I love this pattern! I can't wait to make one for me. Here is the link to the pattern.

Here is my crochet turtle! I just love him! He comes from Simple Crochet for Cherished Babies.

Here is the scarf that I made for my crochetville swap. I hope that my partner likes it. I am making another one though. Just in case!

Wow! I have my first comment! Yea! Thanks, Karla for dropping by! I hope to have more visitors!
I have some more photos to take and to post.
I just got 2 really awesome magazines and can not wait to start making projects in them! Quick and Easy Knitting and Crocheting. This has to Die for projects in it, I made a list, and I have 10 in there I want to try!
Tonight, I got in the mail The Simply Creative Crochet book. I had to get it as I have seen that beautiful crochet beaded scarf everyone has been making. I really want to try that one out! Need to look for the "right" yarn and beads. I am thinking multi colors?? hmmm....
Here is a photo of my really adorable, nephew. He is 5 weeks old. He is modeling the hat I made for him. See below the Christening outfit that I made for him.

That's What I love about Sunday

It is a beautiful day here. I am getting ready to walk out the door to church and am looking out the window at beautiful sunny day that it is out there. The dogwoods are almost all the way out. Will be pretty all week.

On a sad note, I have decided to get out of my home business and just concentrate on my home, family and career. So, I will be selling off my Mary Kay inventory. That will be a task, because, well, I have a ton of it. So, if you know anyone that likes it, wants it, I have a bargain for them! Send me and E-mail.

Going to try to work on posting some of the buttons that I participate in this afternoon. We shall see about that one! I am determined that I can defeat this blog thing!

Molly's Sweater Poncho

This is the sweater poncho that I created for my 3 year old neice. She loves it and won't take it off! Her mother had to let her sleep in it because Molly cried when she tried to remove it! Glad she likes it!

May Flowers!

May Flower

This really has nothing to do with crochet, but it is one of my favorite pictures. Took this a few years ago, but they are just starting to come out again this year and the Dogwoods are getting ready to bloom. I love this time of year!
