...Now I'm on my Triangle Motifs! I'll be making BUNCHES of them. I'm thinking Dark Jewel Colors that will be sewn togather at a later date. As for now, I'm just crocheting Triangles! Oh yes... sooner or later they will become an Afghan...

But I also want to make another shrug / cover up / wrap.... You can make these things into just about anything you want. Just use a different type of yarn... a different sized hook & stitch, and voila! They same old pattern makes something all togather different.

Here is the shrug I have on in the picture below. I have it lying flat in this picture.

Here It Is...

Almost done...

... I'm almost done with my Rose colored shrug / bed jacket. It's a pale rose. ... Reminds me of a Victorian Rose. The yarn is Simply Soft by Caron.

I'l get a picture on here when I'm done with it...:-) The shrug is made with the Double Puff Stitch... Very Loose & Comfy. I really like that stitch. It's one of faves. Glad I found it on the Linus Project Site.

Went to the Dentist office this morning. I'm STILL numb... Since I had a LONG TIME to wait in the Dentist office for My Turn... I took my other crochet with me. My Granny Square Shrug in the making.... Only this one is for Fall / Winter... I'm using Malabrigo on it... I started with 2 hanks of Paris Nights , but now I'm using Alpine Lace for what will become slevees & the front which drape down on the sides & front.( use your imagination..;-) )

I better get going... Hubby is on his way home..:-) He'll be eating, but with this lingering numbness, I'll just drink from a STRAW.

I have Sissy's picture on here ( my Maltese)... But look... Don't get svared now... it's just me...;-)

My Feather & Fan Scarf...:-)

... I just finished my Feather & Fan Scarf. It's made of Egyptian Cotton yarn. I washed it, partially dried... then laid flad to shape it on my ironing board.

I plan on wearing it with my Dark Brown blouse... The yarn has Browns & Greens in it. So it looks good.

Here it is: Please let me know what you think..:-)

Here are some pictures of yesterday!

Michael ( our son ) is giving his girlfriend's nephew a PiggyBack Ride on the hill.

This one is Michael & Aiden watching Aidens Dad ( Mike ) on horseback.

This one is Paul ( my hubby ) horse back rifing with parents of Aiden.

It was a hot day. Those poor horses had work out and a nice cold bath / shower after the rides with a garden hose.

Been A Busy Girl!

Good Evening!

I'm taking a short a break from crocheting to get on line and see if I still have friends here..;-).

I seem to have several projects going at once. I have one that is a basket made from Lily cotton yarn... NOw I have to somehow make the sides of it stiff so it will stand up. But how do you do that? The pattern didn't say.

Little Dog & Fire Crackers...

... A little dog and Fire works or fire crackers DO NOT go togather!!! Today is the 4th day that we have had fire crackers going off around here!... And every time Sissy hears them, she thinks someone is at the door.

She is also very hesitant to go outside and go potty because people all around is have LOUD fire crackers.... hubby is in bed trying to sleep, so I have to keep her from barking at the noise...

Does this picture give you an idea of how I feel?

I hope everone is having a nice 4th/ of July!!!
