Just Some Green...

Hello friends,  I stepped out into the misty rain the other day to shoot some things  around our deck area, looking for color.   This time of year, the rainy season, there doesn't seem to be  that much color around..just mostly green.  I am quite happy with green though... so much more than the brown desert of my past. :-) In fact, I do tend to lean toward the neutral tones just like this beautiful taupe color of the gloves that my friend  Judy  knitted for me.  Aren't they beautiful?  So soft too.  Perfect for shooting in the light rain. :-)  Made this crocheted wrap bracelet for my sis-n-law that lives in Bend, Oregon.  The hardest part is stringing all the beads on!   Lots of great tutorials on YouTube.  Happy weekend!  Becca 

Now That's One Big Doily!

Hi Friends!  I just wanted to take a second to show you the  latest "afghan" I finished.  It's called the  Angelica Afghan I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it yet.  So far, it makes a nice cover for some of my old and battered  leather furniture in our basement. This was the first time I ever ordered a "kit."  I was a little worried about what the yarn  would be like, but was really pleased, and it's actually soft!  This is a queen size bed in our guest room, so you get the idea  of the size.  However, Lucy here thought this was a better photo to  show you the size of the afghan. :-)  I'm "hooking" up for the first time today with  "Hookin On Hump Day!  You can check out some of the other fiber creatives, or join the party,   HERE  and  HERE Well, I'm off to do some housework, but the sun is shining and I'm 

A Fresh Start

Greetings friends, Happy 2015!  The holidays came and went like a flash for me this year.  Since my last post, ("A Real Pumpkin Farm") Thanksgiving happened, I  celebrated the big 50th Birthday, then Christmas was here and gone before I  could catch my breath! Whew!  Last year, 2014, I started a photo a day challenge on Instagram and managed to finish  that without a hitch, Yay!    While I did meet lots of new friends and had a great time, I feel like I  neglected my blog, and that made me sad.   So, here I go 2015 slowly but surely making a fresh start!  Hopefully they'll still be a few of you out there that haven't given up on me.  *** This week is my MIL's birthday, so one of the gifts I have for her are these  crocheted, heart coasters I made.  (yes, I am STILL a crocheting, crazy cat lady) LOL!  Another project I finished is this afghan/throw I made for my  favorite reading
