Around the Bases CAL

Hello all, and thank you for your kind comments on my last post.  This week I've been working on my Around the Bases CALs.  I ended up starting a second one last Saturday when I was at my daughter's place. I took pics of them outside today, but the lighting wasn't quite right.  You'll still get the idea though. :) 
Here's my original one.  What looks to be black in this pic is actually navy blue.

And here is a pic of the second one that I am working on. It's actually a denim blue color, light yellow and white.

Today I started working on some clothes for Adelyn's 18" dolls.  Not sure if I'll give them to her now, or wait until Christmas.  I might do a little of both.  I'm thinking if I make a couple things now, and give them to her now, that I can see how they fit the dolls.  Then, if need be, I can adjust the hook size or whatever.

In answer to one of the questions that was asked last post, Rick is 59, so he isn't at retirement age yet.  Also, he most likely won't be retiring for a long time anyway, if he does find a good paying job. For a couple decades he worked for a company who didn't do 401K, so we had nothing saved that way. I don't work outside the home because of my health issues. We shall persevere, though. :) 

They're giving free flu shots tomorrow morning at the small, local medical center, and Rick and I are hoping to be among those who are "first come, first served". They have 100 shots to give out.  Here's hoping we each manage to get one.

As always, thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!!


  1. Both of those projects turned out so pretty! Good job! I hope you get your flu shots, we have ours, thank goodness. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Both are looking nice!!:) You can sell dolls dresses on your etsy store as well. I have no idea what 401k is but I guess it is related to insurance or employee fund kind of thing.
