On Instagram Now!

I've started posting a lot of my crochet items on Instagram. Those interested should follow me or check it out here. I'll be traveling next month to visit with our daughter and her family in Knoxville and will share photos of how beautiful it is there. Happy Fall and don't forget to set your clocks back next weekend!

Baby Groot

Baby Groot is finished. I posted about it on Facebook, but since animated images won't work there, here he is dancing. I want to give credit for the original pattern to Maarja
And down below is something that is a work in progress. Tired of looking at the back side of our ugly wooden fence as the backdrop for my wine tree (which I've yet to post photos of here) I just thought a bit of silliness would look better, so I started with clouds, then added a tree, then a few leaves...still pondering on what to add next. Not to mention that the days get too darn hot for me to do much on it after around noon time. More later!

Summer and Mandalas

I haven't posted in awhile but am trying to change that. We shall see anyhow. Thought I'd share part of what I've been doing. Crochet seems to have taken over my life the past few months and many things have been created, but finally had the time to do something for myself. I took a couple of old Ikea bar stools and cleaned them up and crocheted mandala seat covers, then decided to make back covers as well. Then seeing as how I wanted to coordinate the freshly painted table/umbrella combo for the back patio, well you see by the photos what happened next. These were all done with Peaches & Cream cotton yarn and I sprayed them with a UV water proof type spray. When it rained recently, you could see it worked, cuz of the water beading up on them. So that's it for now. More later!

Spring Break Family Cruise Photo Book!

Our son  and daughter in law took us on our first cruise. It was a Western Caribbean route on Royal Caribbean International. I've never felt so spoiled and indulgent in my whole life. Also, I can see how people get addicted to cruises. They change your outlook on life. I've been to 3 new places now. Roatan Honduras, Belize City Belize and Cozumel Mexico. Never had fed a monkey or macaw by hand before, but now I have. Never had floated in a river through a cave in another country, now I have. Also never experienced white sand and turquoise waters, now I have. Sure....the USA has white sand, but its surely not the same. Anyhow, here's a sampling of our vacay. Enjoy!

Shutterfly photo books offer a variety of layouts and cover options to choose from.
