A Sunday of my kids

So far it is 11:32 and everyone is still asleep but me. So I am playing with my blog and thought hmmmm wonder what pictures of my kids I can post. This way you get to see all my babies :) We will start with the oldest to the youngest.

Bubba from 2009 (he hides from the camera)

DIL ChatterBox

Brat from 2011



Grandbaby (Don't have a nicname for her yet LOL)

Well that is my chickadees! I am so blessed to have them all in my life. Plus I have others who call me mama too. Right now it is time to take Fluffy and Noodle to the lake for a wonderful swim!

Odds and ends

I have a few little tid bits I wanted to share. A painting from my friend Mark Grossi. And Noodles new scrap doll to start.

Isn't this wonderful? It darkened a bit when dry but I still love it. Now to get a frame for it!

Not the best photo of Noodle but she had not been feeling well.
SO here is her new doll Berry! Yes I made it so don't laugh :)

Now other than a bit of crocheting here and there (because everyone knows I have a bunch of pojects going at the same time) I also taught myself to knit. Well I got the knit part down but purl is a pain and is now a bad word not to be said in this house LOL. I finished the afghan that was started 3 years ago. And another doily for the rainbow room. I will put more pics up when I get my lazy bum into gear to do it :) Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Well back in March before my cord blew up on me we had a burst of rainbows. Of course this got me thinking about rainbows ALL THE TIME. It became a quest to see what I could make for the bedroom :)

And the next day...

So what did I make...or at least start?
A doily for starters.

Then the beginings of 2 mobiles.
Mobile 1...
Mobile 2...

Then flip and...

But of course I just had to make an afghan. This is my first attempt at a granny stripe. I used Lucy's pattern from her blog attic 24.

The purple looks blue in these pictures. I did finish this and did 2 rounds of red as a trim.

That was my rainbow phase...for now LOL! I am currently working on another afghan. I also made a few new animals and a new rag doll for Noodle (it was a sad day when Sally fell apart in the washer. She was a good doll for several years) So now Noodle has Berry hehehe. I also have a runner started. And hell has froze over....I learned how to knit. Purl is kicking my butt though. Everything is going slow since back in April I was diagnosed with tendonitis. But slow or not I do what I can. I will be posting more as soon as I can.

Been a long time

I am sorry for the delay. But my new powercord for my laptop came in today. Plus I have had some health issues. I am working on a new post now. Just be patient please :)
