The clock is ticking..............................

I wish everyone a Safe, Healthy, Happy New Year
Mandella Pillows!!! I could not find round pillow forms locally. The one I did find cost $17.00. Do you know how much yarn i could buy for that?
So hell no!!!!!!!!!!! did I buy that pillow form. I made one myself. Stuffin costs around $3.00. Plus I had old materal laying around.

I'll show the finished project later. Cuz well I am not done yet.
Plus I am going to go to in-laws for dinner.

Such a sweet face. She was in my lap at the time. I could not help myself.
JUJU is 8 months old now.

No Crochet or Knitting done here!!!!

Another 2 trips to Cleveland Clinic....

What A Amazing Place. They help so many people. They can't seem to decide what is going on with me. But they have a good idea. Maybe RA. Who knows.

I know my hands hurt alot.I have been on high doses of Prednisone for over a year.. Now that SUCKS. Now they want me to give myself injections. I hope that one helps. If one drug does not work they find more to try.

Can you see the blue water??? right before the clouds start.

That is Lake Erie.
My little JUJU.... Such a doll.

My one doctor is on the 9th floor. So you can see a lot. God willing I can crochet soon. I really miss it. Such a soothing thing to do. I have been visting all of my favorite blogs... Such fun to visit people from all over the world.
Stay Healthy and Have a Great Day.

New member of the family

Please Meet JU JU. Yes it is a strange name. But I just love her.
We drove to Pa to get her at a breeder's house. So Cute. She is 10 weeks old and a Bichon Frise. She really loves to get into everything.

I am finally getting out the depression that I was in cause of losing Jewel. THANK GOD> I still cry for her. But much better.
I really need to crochet or knit something. Not much of that going on. I want to make pillows. So i think i will check out a few of my favorite sites and start one.
Stay Cool and Have a Great Day!!

Sad Lately

I have been very sad lately, We lost our Miss Jewel dog. She would have been 13 in July. I really have not felt like doing anything.
We are going to get another Bichon. Hopefully soon. We have been calling around. So now Tiny dog and Miss Jewel are gone. We were lucky with Tiny he was 17 years old. We had a wonderfully long time together.
What can I say about Miss Jewel but she was " my girl" . I was very close to her. My heart feels broken.
Nervous knitting Dishcloths.
Cute flowers I made from Attic 24 site.

New yarn from Hobby Lobby I bought about 1 month ago. Maybe ripple afghan?????

Swiffer Thingy

Who would have guessed I would write up a very simple pattern for a swiffer thingy. There are so many out there. So I am sure mine is just like someone Else's. I enjoyed this simple thing. Our whole house is old hard wood floors so these dusty things come in handy.

So here it goes:

Chain 33

Row 1 DC in 4th ch. from hook then DC across. 31 DC

Row 2- 9 Ch3 turn DC across

Now we will be working in the round

Row 10 Chain 1, SC around, Do 2 SC in each corners. all the way around. Join with a slip stitch at end.

Row 11 Chain 1, SC around and do 2 SC in each corner. join with slip stitch.

Row 12 Chain 1 DO 2 SC, SC2Tog, Repeat all the way around. Join with slip stitch.

Row 13 Same as Row 12

Row 14 Sc around join with slip stitch.

Row 15 Same as Row 12

Weave in all ends. Viola!!!! Finished!!!!

I think it needs some flowers. What do you think????

A picture of a picture. My baby Jewel. It is hard to believe she will be 13 this July.

One of my favorite flowers is Tulips, Tulips, Tulips. Have a Great Day!!

Tuesday Tea (pot)

So this is one of my favorite tea pots. So simple. Ya see my grandma used to live in a old post office building and this reminds me of it. The building was so cute. She loved living there.
Okay so I did not plant the tomatoes there.
New blinds for the living room. I always wanted vertical blinds for there. The room stays dark with out them. Now I get a lot more light.
One of my favorite pictures. I reallly LOVE Thomas Kincaid.

I have been crocheting and knitting up a storm. My nerves are a little wound up now. Making a trip to Cleveland Clinic tomorrow. So my fingers are flying. I will have to take pictures of everything .
Have a Great Day!!!
