Argh!!! I think I need to move ....south..way south....

It has been just plain crappy since Monday morning..I haven't left my house, even to go to the mail box...and that is just a few yards from the garage door..I can't find my boots, and I am not going to get my shoes filled with snot..I mean snow..then my socks will get wet..and my feet will get cold....I have hubby grab it when he pulls up the drive.  I had to detach little snowballs from my poor dogs foot pads when he comes back in from doing his business..nope I do not like winter...I doubt if I could go anywhere even if I wanted to..I have a truck and anyone who has any amount of common sense knows that there is no weight in the back of a normal truck..hence..I slip and slide like a kid on a water slide..forget about making it up the small grade to my house..not going to happen.


So you might think my house would be free of all the dust bunnies, and floors would be spic and span..beds made..toilets sparkly clean...ummm...NOT...as much as I have really tried..I cannot get into housework..I walked around with a broom yesterday, and moved a few things on a table...and stared at the lovely pattern left when I moved a doily..think I will keep it for awhile...

Remember the box of thread and the orders for the doilies..see previous posts...for more info..but here is one of the doilies I have finished up for them..this is the third one...love the color combos..I am working on one to put in my shop...I have not been listing anything new and kind of staying focused on getting this order done..so my inventory is lacking..and sales have slowed something awful.  

Anyway I want to shout out to all my new followers...thanks for stopping by and leaving me comments...I love comments...lets me know someone is still reading my thoughts, and looking at the pics..ok...here are the pics from the doily.....


Like the color choices..had to really work at getting the color changes in the right spot..

Hello Vikki,

The doilies are absolutely gorgeous. I am so in awe of your crochet skills. I haven't left a comment in quite some time but I do read your posts. Taking a vacation day today. Yes, the weather is awful and I am ready for some warmer temps. The snow and frigid temps are too much together. One or the other but not both at the same time. Stay warm!

Gorgeous doily, as always! I haven't been going out for the mail either. Our driveway has been a solid mass of ice for weeks now. :p So I let Rick pick the mail up when he comes home from work...or when he leaves for work, depending on which shift he's on.

I'm with you, Vikki! Don't like cold weather or housework! It's freezing here in SC today! I've got to take kids to school and then get groceries. Stay warm and crochet! Beautiful doilies!

As I live in Florida and never get snowed in, it seems like it is fun to be able to stay in and be cozy. I wouldn't clean either, I would knit or crochet all day and drink tea. Love your latest doily.
Hugs and stay warm,
Meredith
