Much ado today following two days of post carpal tunnel relaxation.  Washer waltzing, dryer spinning and overall pick me up with a spray here and mop there. 

Have reworked my newest doily pattern with possibly a different edging.  Have to think on that for a bit.  Funny how different thread makes and colors can change the sizing so much.  The second doily done in a lavender is a bit smaller then my original try in the blue.  But, like them both.  Thank you for the wonderful names. Still deciding on that as well.   Hope to get the pattern published later this week.

Hard to believe that Palm Sunday is tomorrow.  It has arrived so quickly.  We now enter the most holy week of the year.  My wishes for abundant blessings on all.  Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.
With His Love,

Need A Name

I finally have designed a new doily.  I will have to crochet another one before I can post the pattern as I just got crocheting row after row without writing it down ... there's still a few more rows to add and then to recreate and document.  And oh yes, I'm looking for a name for this.  Any suggestions? 

Welcome to the weekend, have a good one.

Thursday Thoughts

If you want to be happy,
put your effort into
 controlling the sail,
not the wind.

What's Doing Wednesday

Followers ... following.... something that blogger wouldn't let me do for close to a year now and all of a sudden they're back and I'm thrilled that the number has grown quite a bit.  Thank you so much!

Enjoy your Wednesday ... back later.

Spring brings

The blooms this year are magnificent, although early.  Early enough that the night times are now seeing 20 degree temperatures again.   Hoping this doesn't last and the flowers and buds are ok.  The new spring bringing such color and beauty.  Refreshment.

And a time of relief and repair ... carpal tunnel surgery for the left hand tomorrow.  So ready to say good bye to the splint and numbness.  Its a good thing!

Have a lovely evening.

Blossoms and Blooms

Plants and flowers and trees ...

yarn and thread...

Spring, in all things.

Sun is shining, birds are singing ... spring is and has been arriving early this year.  Temps seeing high 60's with 70's promised for next week.  And ... a computer is on order and schedule to arrive as well.  Hope to be up and running towards the end of next week.

The crochet hook continues to be happily busy.  Nearing the completion of a crib blanket for the little miss arrival come this May.  What a wonderful time of year to welcome a sweet little one. Joining squares and an edging and it will be ready.

Adding to the doily collection, can't get enough!  I find such wonderment in each piece.  I hope one day that someone will treasure these as much as I do.

Hope that your weekend is
 one of blessings and joy.

Starting over ...

Almost.  Shopping for a computer, a virus destroyed ours.  And so, time to post and visit is at a premium at the moment.   I really don't understand how someone can put out into the web/emails such items that end up causing devastation and are so costly to others.  Most of all it saddens me.  I would never think of hurting someone or their possessions.

Ok, enough of that ... on to what gladdens me ... crocheting ... and the past few months have produced some new doilies and coasters ... a few here.  I do have a baby blanket in the hopper as well, but these are a few of the thread finishes.  Hadn't worked on thread in a while and I'm remembering how much I love it.

Looking to start a new doily this afternoon and also spend a bit of time on the baby blanket I need for May.  It should have been done by now but I joined my squares wrong and had to cut it all apart, talk about being taught patience!  Will post that hopefully this coming week.

Have to run out so no visiting for a while either.  Hope to get back around.  Have missed all.  Have a lovely weekend.

Just saying ...

Spring will be here soon and so will I.  The computer has had a bad time of it as of late and hoping to have it resolved shortly.

 Looking forward to blogging and visiting again.

Hope all is well.  Blessings in abundance.
