6 Zippered Pouches

I was trying to make a zippered pouch and these 6 are my final results.  I tried a couple of other ways but decided I liked the zipper on the front and not at the top.  They lay a lot nicer this way.

Flowers and Stuff

Here are my cone flowers.

I had this green jar and decided to crochet around it.  I had no pattern.  I just started and figured it out as I went.  I love the way it came out.  You can store something in it or put a battery candle in it for a nice glow.

Found this soft yarn in my stash and decided to do a narrow scarf.  I used the corner to corner pattern.

My chair is getting broke down a little and I have been sitting on small pillows.  Decided to get 1 inch foam and cover it with this printed quilt pattern fabric.  The green matches my chair pretty well.  It sure sits a lot better.

Sky and Flowers

This was the sky the other morning when we were running errands.  I love clouds.

These are my flowers in bloom now.

This bee type critter was just sitting on my Lily and not moving.  I had to take it's picture.

4 Generations and Doll Blankets.

We have been trying to get a 4 generation picture for a while now and last Sunday we took this one.

June Doll blankets for the Giving Doll.  2 of these blankets were done with odds and ends of leftover yarn.  I think they came out really colorful.  That makes 39 so far this year.

Here is what is in bloom now.  I love all my flowers that come back every year with out much work.  These pictures were taken before this last heavy rain and wind.

Buds on my red Rose bush.  It is so full of buds, it will be beautiful in a short time.

Flowers and Ava

Here are my flowers in bloom and the plants we just put in pots.  Terry gave me this hanging basket.

Our garden is a total of 2 tomato plants.

Miss Ava and Terry came to visit today.  See is pulling herself up to everything and crawls like a racer.  Very hard to keep her out of things she should not be into but we managed.  She was not this mobile the last time she was at my house.  She is just over 9 months old.

She looks so serious at Grandma Terry.
