Had a very nice day at home yestarday except for the couple of hours I left and went out to lunch with two of my friends from work . We had a nice lunch at the olive garden and then we each went our own way. I stopped off at the mall and went into bath and body works. would you beleive I spent fourty dollars and could have carried it in one hand. Well at least my granddaughters and my sec. pal at work will be happy I stopped by. lols
Nothing quilty to report and its time to go back to work. I have a dress I need to work on for my daughter in law that is probably all I will manage today. take care untill next time.

This is  what we woke up too this morning" even though we come from snow country we are staying home today because after watching the news there have been wrecks all over the place. apparently the roads turned to ice last nite  so no church this morning. will have to see what else I can manage to get into. I do have a pile of mending but right now that dosen't sound too exciting. I also need to make up some eye glass cases so maybe that is what I will do".  take care untill next time.

Here it is saturday and so far all I have done is go go gooooooooooo. I got up and colored my hair the first thing this morning, Then I got busy and made another pair of pillowcases for my grandson to add to the pair I made the nite before. I was up untill ten thirty sewing. It seems like time just gets away from me" every spare minute seems to be used up. I finished my daughters chrocheted granny square and got it in the mail a couple of days ago. she received it and loves it. It is always fun to make things for people who love them". after I finished the pillowcases I made a little heart bookmark that I found on sew many quilts blog. Then hubby got home from the great grandsons basketball game and brought me Rascals dog bed to mend. He insists on pulling it out of his dog house and dragging it out in the middle of the yard to lay on it. in between all of this I have been doing laundry. after starting this my hubby came in and said tripod has gotten off of his chain. we have a long cord that goes across the backyard so that he can run back and fourth and he snapped it off completely and so it was outside to see if we could catch him. Let me tell you" He may only have three legs but that dog can outrun any four legged dog I have ever seen. And do you think he comes when you call himmmmm nooooooooooo""" so we are both walking all over the yard and the neighors yards hoping he has not gone down to the creek and met some nasty snakes or out to the highway when I finally saw him over at one of the neighbors. Doug came up behind me and was out of breath because he has heart problems so I managed to sneak up behind him and thank God the cord was still attached and long enough for me to grab it before he knew I was close enough to catch him. I swear I am getting too old for this drama. I miss the days when we had little dogs that we could take out and not worry about. anyway here is a pictue of the pillowcases and the doll quilt that is all finished except the little seam on the side to close,

Today has been a work day. It has been raining all day long. about the only thing I have accomplished craft wise is a little bit of knitting. I am working on an afghan that I found on raverly " it is made up of 7x9" rectangles. the colors are black, grey and beige. all it is" is knit but it is soooooo pretty. when I get more done I will post it. I think it is going to be a long time project. I am also working on a chorcheted afghan made up of scraps in little granny squares. the centers are differnt colored scraps , the middle will be an off white color and the outside will probably be some type of green color although I haven't yet made up my mind on that one.
The cupcake doll quilt is still waiting for the borders. not sure I will get the energy untill this weekend to work on it but who knows " sometimes I surprise myself.
We have adopted another dog. this one was sitting along side of the road one morning as I was on my way to work. He was sitting next to his little buddy who had been hit and killed by a car. I tried to get him to come to me as I didn't want him to meet the same fate as his friend did but although he kept starting to come he would continually look back to his little friend and go back. well I had to get to work so thank God for cell phones and I called my hubby to go and get him. when I got home he was happily playing in the back yard with our other adopted dog tripod. Tripod was hit by a car before we adopted him and they had to remove his leg. the vet nicknamed him tripod and it just sort of stuck. anyway the two boys got along very well. and hubby suggested we keep him. He has informed me since that I am not to keep bringing home abandoned dogs because we are at our limit. I informed him that he was the one who suggested we keep rascal or trouble as i call him. this little guy or should I say big guy (hes still a puppy) has quite cheerfully chewed up our rockers that sit on the deck, the patio furniture, part of the umbrella, several parts of the new deck, not too mention umpteen blankets that we have donated to the igloo dog house we bought for him. Every day I come home there seems to be something else he has found to chew up. If we live through this puppy stage i think we will have a nice addition to the family. Untill next time" take care"

Gee it has been sooooooo long since I have posted anything that I don't know where to begin. the last time I posted I told you I was working over time for one of the girls that was having problems with her foot. she is diabetic and had to give up the job. working on cement floors all day is not easy for someone without health problems but add to it the diabetis and it just didn't work. anyway I wound up with her postition. so more money but less time to do the things I like. I have been accomplishing a few things . today for example I finished an afghan for my daughter and also started a doll quilt for one of my granddaughters.
Have also been doing a lot of knitting. Can't think of all that has gone on since I last posted so will try and get better at posting. take care untill next time.
