"Live Peace – Speak Kindness – Dwell in Possibility" ~Amanda Tapping

Still Here, Still doing Stuff

I know my posting here has slowed down over the last couple of weeks, but sometimes life takes over again.

Over the last week we were preparing for my parents visit. They live in Florida and I am in Michigan and they move down there from Michigan almost 20yrs ago. about 2 and a half years ago, my Grandmother passed away. This was the Grandmother who had taught me how to crochet. Over the last couple of years my mom had been going through her mothers stuff, sorting into what to pass on to whom over my moms 2 siblings and their children. There are 12 of us grandchildren, and so many more great-grandchildren that my Grandmother had. Since I am the only on out of all of the grandchildren to have learned how to crochet, I got what was left of her stash and all of her pattern books. I found her hooks kind of scattered through the yarn. My parents came over on Thursday to visit and drop off 8 boxes of stuff, the majority of it being my grandmothers yarn stash. My favorite is the 6-100yd balls of gold/gold metallic size 10 thread brand new, never been opened.

💚Love those green eyes!💚 Pretty Miss Jade #cat #blackcat #greeneyedblackcat My baby girl, Drusilla MamaKitty. She turned 11yrs old this this year in July. She is the ruler of this house and the Mama of everyone. She can actually say words too, her favorites are “Mom”, “No”, and “Now”. Somewhere I have a video of her talking. She doesn’t talk as often now as she did when she was younger. I wish I had a better pic of her eyes though. She has the prettiest aqua colored eyes. #cat #myfurbaby Faerie Blossom Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers Diamond Tweed Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers This tank and shawl set are actually from 2 separate patterns that I found on Ravelry. The Wing Span Shawl made in Tunisian Crochet by Oana Oros and the Custom Tank Top Version # 1 by Jane Sharp. I really love them together and they’re both made with Bernat Softee Baby in the Girly Girl colorway. The shawl clip is a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. #crochet #crochettank #crochetshawl #crochetwrap #notmypatterns Another idea for my bag. It has a single strap that goes across the body. I’ve been using this one and have found a few things I’d like to change in the newer versions. #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetbag #crochetsinglestrapbackpackbag
