The past week at a glance.

Not much has been going on around here.  It has been too cold for this lady to venture out..not that I go out alot anyway..just saying it is too cold even if I wanted to go somewhere..which I don't.  

I just finished blocking these two doilies..Patricia Kristoffersen design..can be found in the book Doilies with a twist.  Being as I just blocked them and they are wet the colors are a little darker..I will take more pics tomorrow when they are dried..the lighter one is done in ecru and the green one is done with what I call teal or aquamarine #992


 Ok now this is the top of my table by my hooking chair...can you guess how many projects are sitting on it waiting to be finished up?  Those of you who have been following me awhile know that this drives me crazy..and almost puts me to a stand still....maybe that is why I am blogging right now instead of hooking...ummm..ignore the M&M's..sometimes you just need a chocolate fix..and the bandaids you ask..well I was making a tree and had to use two strands of acrylic yarn...can you say blisters? I guess I can put them away..
 And finally because some of you have asked about my fur baby...Isn't he just awesome..he has his flaws..like hair, hair and more hair...he is the reason I own a vacume cleaner..not really, but he is the reason I have to use it almost everyday...He is a big boy..last time and the vets he weighed over 100 pounds and he still looks thin...changed his dog food and now he is eating better..


Well that's all I got...I will post a better pic of the green doily when it dries so you can see the true color of this green..it has become a popular seller in my store in the past few weeks.  Thanks for stopping by and I am off to grab a hook....

Beautiful doilies! It's been a while since I've started any PK doilies although I do have almost, if not all, of her books! I love the colors!

It's cold here also. I have a small heater at my feet. I try to keep the small table beside my chair clutter free but that doesn't always work. Especially now since I've been working with bobbins. You are a brave woman to have such a large dog in your house. My lab would be like a bull in a china shop! Stay warm!

I love Patricia's doily patterns! They are just exceptional. I do like the colors you chose for these. Your table looks very much like mine. It drives me crazy, too, and I need to do a clean up again so I don't feel so stagnated. Yes! Chocolate is a must! :) Your baby is so adorable! Stay warm - it's been so cold here, too, and I don't want to venture out, either. Thankfully, I don't much.
