Here we are having rain this morning Yuk.. What I have been up too, not much. I had to get my oil change for my car on Monday and they noticed my rigth front outer tie-rod needed to be changed. I knew that there was a little noise in there but didn't want to spend more money. I did get it done and didn't cost as much as I was thinking, good for me.

Good thing I got one more dogs hair cut yesterday. No hair cuts today not in the rain but I still have 6 more to do. Here is a picture of little Dasiy she is the youngest of my herd and also the smallest.


The kids love to take pictures so they went nuts with the camera and took about 20 pictures so here is the best ones. This one is a close up of her head, she is mostly black.


No I still haven't started any thing new for my knitting and I am still working on the first sock. I think that this is the longest sock I have ever made, I just don't feel up to knitting. At least other things are getting done so I won't complain. Have yourself a awsome day and God bless.

More work

Here is want I have been up to, another dogs hair cut this one is Rocket he will be 8yrs old on Thursday that is April 24th. Here is a picture of him before and after his hair cut. He is so good when he gets his turn he sits there and doesn't even try to get away like the younger dogs.


This is before, thats My little guy in the back holding him up so that he wouldn't jump down when I take the picture.


Here he is after, with a picture of Kesha with him. He's one of my oldest dogs, Kesha is the oldest she is only 6 months older, and she is the oldest that I have. All the others are younger.

I am stumped on my knitting, I don't know what to cast on next. Yes I do have a pair of socks on the needles but I like to have two projects to jump back and forth when I get board on one. Oh well maybe later today I will start something. I try to make for the kids but they don't want any sweaters, they did wear them when they were younger but don't like them now oh well to bad for them. Maybe they will change their mind when they get older. Kids are alway fussy even about thier food they eat. I can just imagine what my mother went through there was five of us God rest her soul.

Well thats about all for today God Bless and you all have a great day.

New Bag

Here I am to show another finished project. This one is very nice and I think that I will use it on a daily bases. Not that I carry a purse any more, I used to carry the diaper bag and as the kids got older I switched to a purse just to carry the little thing that they might need and now that they are in school and don't go with me as often I no longer need to carry one. Any way here is a picture of it close up and also one of the whole bag. There are cables on it hope you can see them.



It's just the right size for my little things like my snack, ipod and such. Now I hope you all have a wonderful day, it's bright and suuny here and getting hot, God Bless.

New toy

Ok here I am again this time with my sweater all finished up and it fits great. This time I am happy with the finished project (I can see myself actually wearing this one). No one is up to take a picture of me wearing it so this one will have to do.


It has a hood, I was thinking of putting a front pocket but then it migth be too bulky. The yarn is light for those cool summer evenings and for the fall.I might even wear it today. I need to go to the hospital for a mamogram (eeeh yuk). Every thing is alright for those of you who might be worried no lumps or anything. My mother had Breast cancer and past away just over 9 years ago and my Dr. is just making sure things are ok.

Now on to the new toy, yes I bought myself this only because I found it cute here's the picture.


Yes it's a i-cord machine. It works great. I did up this i-cord in about an hour. The cord measure just over 10 ft. My daugther has the spool one and does it by hand and it has taken her over 6 mths to make one about the same length. Here is a photo of hers.


Well that is all for this time around oh one more thing what I am now working on, I do have another pair of socks on the needles and I have a knitted bag. Just about done the bag so a few days I will have finished photos to show to everyone, enjoy your day and God Bless.

Crocheted Monkey

I did get time to finish the Monkey. I only have one made and both the kids want the first one. What to do? I will make another one and make them wait till both are done then they can choose which they want(but then they both like this colour).


Well on my sweater I did manage to get some knitting done on it. I have one sleeve and the hood to go, and of course I will still need to sew it.

Crocheted bag finally finished

Here it is my finished bag. I put in my orange book to show more of the details. I am not sure what I am going to use the bag for but its done.


There is a draw string in there to close up the bag, I made it the same colour so it is hard to see.


Next I shall tell you what I am working on. I am doing another sweater, the front is complete the back is just about finished. Then two sleeve and a hood so that shouldn't take to long.

Also I am working on a crocheted Monkey, Yes a stuffed toy for the kids. They both would like one(I am still working on the first one). I have the head done the body the two legs finished and now working on the arms then the tail. I am hoping to have it finished today, but I do need to sew it together. I am hoping to have photos for posting tomorow if all things go well today. God Bless and have yourself a good day.

What a Deal

Wow I sure got myself a good deal. When I got home I was thinking that I should have bought more, but I don't even know what I am going to make from them. Here's a picture of what I got.


I think it was a good deal a 113g ball for only one dollar. Any sugests for what I should make?

Oh one more thing I am just about done the crocheted bag I need to sew it up. I should have pictures for you tomorow. I have decided to do my post only in the moring because I tried last night and my computer was so slow not worth wasting my time sitting here, much faster in the morning. Have yourself a good day and God bless.

Hello everyone, here's what I have been up too this weekend not very good pictures, she didn't like the flash and didn't want to sit for me. I cut her hair, now only 8 more hair cuts to go. I used the scissors not the razor this time only because I need new blades haven't found the time to go get any.


here's a close up but I find her eyes are red in the photo.


She is just one of my 9 lovely Shih Tzu's that I have. God bless and have yourself a good evening.

Ipod Sock

Well here I am again with a small finished project. This one is crochet.This one fits my Ipod or my Phone. Not sure which to use it for, I already have a case for my phone so I guess I will stick to the Ipod. Here are the pictures.



I am now working on a crocheted bag. Just started it so it may take a few days to make up since I am not as good crocheting as I am with my knitting.

Little Knits

How's everyone? I haven't been up to much just doning these little socks for the Wee Tiny Sock Swap. My kids liked the first one I did so I decided to make one for each of them for their coats.


I have been working on another pair of the Monkey Socks, this pattern is so easy and nice to work. Next I am in a Cal (crochet along) on Raverly. I have a month to make up a bag that everyone is working on. There will even be a winner at the end for a prize (can't wait to see what it will be). All who are particapating will be able to vote for the winner, sounds fare to me.

Well all enjoy your day and get in your knitting time. God Bless.
