Hubby and New Year

Hubby had his surgery to attach the tendon to the bone in his rotator cuff on Fri.  He is doing okay but in a good amount of pain.  He will be in his sling with the square pillow behind it for at least 2 weeks when he sees the doctor again.

Want to wish everyone a Happy and Safe New Year.

Beautiful Sun Rise and Doll Blankets

This was the sun rise last week one morning.

7 doll blankets this month for the Giving Doll.  That makes 80 blankets for 2017.  My crochet hook has been very busy this year.

Hubby is having shoulder surgery on Friday.  The tendon in his rotator cuff has torn completely off the bone.  He has no idea how he did it.  He will be laid up for several weeks.

Wedding Announcement

This is the stitched wedding announcement I made for our oldest grand daughter Kate and her new husband Todd.  She had no idea what it would look like but did know I was making her something.  She just loved it and so did he.

Cactus, Sky and Doll Blankets

Here are my Christmas Cactus that are blooming now.

Morning sky last week.

Nov. Doll Blankets for the Giving Doll.  Not as many as I would like but having the shingles for the 4th time in 23 years slowed me down.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing all my family and friends a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Have a safe day if you are traveling.

Sorry I have not posted lately but this case of Shingles has had me feeling pretty bad.  Getting slightly better but still a lot of pain.

White Violet and Doll Blankets

First I want to tell everyone I am under the weather with Shingles.  This is my 4th time and they are no fun.  Rash is not to bad but the nerve pain is horrible.  It is hard to even get dressed sometimes.  Hope no one out there ever gets them.   So not much done this month.

This is my White Violet in bloom right now.

The 6 Doll Blankets for the Giving Doll this month.

Charm Ohio B/B, Sky, Cat, Christmas Cactus and Breads

We spent a night in at Charm Countryview Inn for an early anniversary present. 

This was the sky early the other morning.  It changed to no color in a matter of minutes.

This is the neighbor's outside cat Therman sleeping in our old trailer in the dead branches.

My crazy Christmas Cactus in starting to bloom and it is not even Halloween yet.

That Time Of Year

It is that time of year again.  Bananas for $.19 a pound for my Christmas Bread.

I use the Amish Friendship Bread starter which you bake every 10 days.  This is the first round.  All Banana today.  Other flavors to come.  House smelled great today.

All my Christmas Bread will be baked and frozen in the freezer before Halloween.  One less thing to worry about during the Holidays.

Good Book And Zipper Heart

I have started watching their show lately so this book filled me in on how it all started.  Way back to their first date.  Sorry the picture is blurry.

This is the zipper heart pin I made today.  Zipper teeth hand sewn to a felt base.  I love the contrast in this one.
