Thread, Pretties, Dust & Birds

Hello friends! Hope this finds you all doing well, and having a good week.  I’m having a good week, with lots of crochet time.  Dh is on 12 hour shifts this week, so isn’t home much, and when he is I am usually being quiet so he can sleep. That gives me a fair amount of crochet time.  I know he’s tired, but I sure wish when somebody was mad at me, they’d tell me why instead of making me try to figure it out myself. He was none too happy with me tonight, but I honestly have no idea why. Do your significant others get like that too…where you know full well they’re not happy with you about something, but yet won’t tell you what that something is? 

Anyhoo, this is a doily I have been working on for about a week.  I really like how it turned out. The pattern can be found here:



Today I put edgings on washcloths, which will be Easter presents for the grandkids.


Went to town on Sunday and found a few fun things.  First up, this doily pattern book for $1 at Bradley’s books. I figure I’ll get my dollar’s worth out of it.  lol


At K-Mart I found these pretty dishcloths.  They’re labeled dishcloths, but I am using them for washcloths. Love the colors!


Also found a couple pieces of costume jewelry on clearance at K-Mart.


On Saturday, Rick and I watched our grandsons, while their sister, mommy and daddy went to see Cinderella at the movie theater. Clayton said he wanted to dust, so I gave him the duster and let him have at it!  -smile-  I paid him $3 afterwards. It was worth it to me. I do good at keeping up with most household chores, but dusting is not one of them. lol


After the others got back that evening, Adelyn and I drew some birds.  She had got a princess book that showed how to draw various things, and a bird was one of them.  She and I have fun drawing together. Clayton snapped this picture for me.


And here are our creations:



Thanks so much for stopping by!

This and That

I have a little bit of everything to share with you today.  First up is this cute little radish.  Looked like this right out of the bag.  I know, I’m easily entertained! lol


For my soon to be daughter in law’s bridal shower, I am doing a doily basket for one of the prizes.  So, I figured I best get started on it.  I have a few months to get them done, but you know how that goes!  For starters, I made this patriotic colored doily.  I like how it turned out.  For the center, I used this pattern: and then added to it until it was the size I wanted.


Yesterday was my husband’s 59th birthday, and on Saturday we ate at Texas Roadhouse with our daughter and her three kids.



I had invited our son and his fiancĂ©e over for supper last night, on Rick’s birthday.  Just as I was starting to prepare supper, our electric went out.  So those plans got changed real quick.

Adelyn and I had fun in the yarn isle at Hobby Lobby!


At Ross’s I found these pretty glasses.


And at Five Below I found these little chicks for a dollar each.  Couldn’t help myself.  I like chicks when they’re little.  lol  I got two for me, and one for each of the grandkids.


I’ve been doing lots of crochet.  Last week I made this hat. Haven’t decided if I’m going to list it in the shop.


This week I’ve been busy making hats that are going to be Baymax hats, from Big Hero 6.  My daughter and her husband won an afternoon at a movie theatre, and that’s the movie we’ll be seeing for free.  So I figured I’d make the kids some hats.  I have the white hat made, now I need to turn them into Baymax hats.

Until next time, take care, and thanks for stopping by!
