3 runners blocked..8 more to go!!!







Good Morning fellow bloggers!! Did you see I am up to 50 followers!! This happened sometime over the weekend. So I want to thank you all for thinking I am worth following and leaving comments from time to time. I am "cleaning out" my craft room and have found thread that I won't be using I don't think so I am putting it all in a box..and maybe I will be giving it away on my blog..more details later in the week if the room gets "cleaned".. Just blocked 3 runners this morning..only 8 more to go then I am all caught up...Making potholders really helps keeping the blocking pile down..I think I have made almost 40 of them since I started..the OCD is really obvious..my husband says they make a pill for that.. I am putting the pineapple doily in my etsy shop today. No sales yet..So far I think it is a big waste of time..I have had lots of lookers, and people adding me to their favorite stores, but no sales yet. Buddy and I went to doggy school yesterday. We did great..the instructor said she was impressed. She had me put Buddy in the sit and stay mode..and walk around him while bouncing a ball. Buddy was not to move..and was to stay in the sit position..WE DID IT!! My husband's grandmother celebrated her 96th birthday sunday. We couldn't be there as she lives in New York and we are here in IN. We talked to her and she sounds just great..this woman is still living alone, driving, and enjoying life. She is in great health, and goes to FL for the winters. I guess it is the Italian blood, or food..ok I am rambling..so you guys have a great week and thanks again for all the comments and stopping by.

What a beautiful doily! :)

Buddy is doing so good. Bless his little sweet doggie heart! He's just too cute. Don't forget, we should at least get pics every now and then. He's so cute. :)

96 and still going strong. That's wonderful!

Wishing you a wonderful day filled with many blessings. :)

HI Vikki,

Well, I am in love with that doily!! Mint green, pink and white, such a pretty combination and with flower petals in the center surrounded by pineapples, it is the perfect doily!!
Like I said before, you must crochet like the wind. Buddy is doing good! He is a keeper! Loved reading about your hubby's grandmother! Just made my smile!
Sorry the etsy isn't doing well for you. I think money is still very tight for so many people. Your work is beautiful. Happy crocheting!

I love all your doilies and I still would love to have one of those flower scrubbies in red like a rose for my kitchen...hugs,Jennifer
