This and That

Sorry I have been away for so long but it has been crazy around here.  Hubby has had another issue with his back and not being able to use his right leg so he is on crutches and can't do a lot of things he usually does.

Blankets this month are scarce but I did get 2 finished.

Terry took us on the Cuyahoga Valley Train ride on Sunday.  This is the train coming into the station.

3 generations.  Terry, Emily and Ava.  I was sitting across the table from them which made 4 generations all together plus hubby.

 This is part of the wet land along the river.

This is the I271 highway bridge.

This is under the bridge.

Part of the river.

Another engine sitting on the siding to be repaired.

The back of our seats with the car name on them.  It was a bubble car and we were up on top with a beautiful view.

Terry and Ava after the ride.

The Akron station.

What I Have Been Up To

Here is what I have been doing.  These are the Doll Quilts for Feb.

I made several of these for Christmas gifts but could not post them till now.  They are made with a globe from a ceiling fan and a frosted Christmas ball and ribbon.

This is a wallet I designed for myself.  It has 3 zippers sections and 1 open pocket.  It folds in half like the 2nd picture.

This wall plaque is a piece of old barn wood from the farm Dale helped on for many years and a bottle from my collection of green bottles.  My friend Marty made it for me.  They tore the barn down last summer.

Nasty Snow Storm and Bunnies

We are in the middle of a nasty snow storm here.  We have over a foot of snow and now we are getting lake effect snow and COLD wind.  Our good neighbor  used his snow blower and cleaned the snow out for us.

More bunnies for my friend.  There are 50 here in this pile and with the ones I did the other day that makes 80.  I think some will go to assisted living clients.  She will put an eye and a tail on them and a pin on the back.

Crocheted Bunnies

Here are 31 crocheted bunnies.  The yellow one in front was my test bunny.  The other 30 are for a friend who does not crochet.  She will add the eyes, tails and a pin on the back.  There are 2 of each color.

Long Time Away and Doll Blankets

It has been a long time ( a whole month ) since my last post.  Not a lot of crafting.  Here are the doll blankets for the Giving Doll for the last few month.  Not many but a few.

Long time

I know it has been a long time since I posted but here is what I just finished.  It is my own design.  This gal does our hair.

I had a sore on my ear that I let go too long because I thought it would heal soon.  Well it was cancer a basal cell carcinoma and I had surgery on Aug. 1.  I had the repair work on Aug.2.  She had to take skin from below my ear on my jaw to repair the hole in my ear.  The cancer had followed the cartilage up to the top of my ear and eaten through it to the outside behind my ear.  She got it all.  I had 20 stitches inside to repair the hole and 36 on the out side.  It is healing well and I still have my ear.  Please if you have any sore that does not heal have it checked out sooner than later.  This has been a very rough time for me and I would not want anyone else to go through it.  I will not post the pictures because they are ugly.
