Pattern for the angel with hearts in filet can be found here.
Well, I promised my friend Edie, that I would make an angel for my "adopted grand daughter" Hope. She likes pink, so I shcose a dark rose #3 thread for the angel with hearts in Filet. I also made an angel by itself for her as well. I was looking for a small rose with a ribbon, but can't find any at Walmart. I finished it last night and today I wasn't online till tonight. I just watched "Lakeview Terrace" with Don and it is pretty good. I haven't been online alot this week till late in the day because I haven't been feeling all that great. Hope you like these angels for you Hope.

Angel with heart Filet

Okay. So, I found this angel in filet pattern on the net, and I did it in yarn first. I did it in RH Super saver. Thinking about putting a dark blue backing on it to show the filet more. I added some rows of hdc and treble crochet at the top. Now, I have started one in #3 thread. It was fast to do, Would of only took me one day if I hadn't run out of the skein with 5 rows to finish. Had to wait to go to Walmart.

January 27, 2009

Okay, here I am again. I have some more things to post. I have been kind of busy and trying to play catch up on my emails too. I have had a yucky weekend and still I am not feeling all that great. I will add some new pictures of stuff I am working on and done. I was doing an Angel with Hearts in filet today with yarn, and ran out of yarn with 5 rows to go. So, I will have to look for the same color. I may have to make a trip to Walmart to get it.
It is very cold here today, and it has snowed off and on all day. So, we have about 2 inches on the ground right now. I made a hat for Travis' girlfriend, and he was supposed to take a picture, but he didn't . I also got some Peaches and Creme cones last week that were on special. Got a few strange colors, but they will work none the less for stuff that can be made like dishcloths and such.

Cross made from Eunice's pattern without the tassel.
Hello everyone. Well, when we were finished with dinner, I was watching the Barack Obama inauguration that I had taped on the DVR, and I had bought one skein of Red Heart Strata. I made up a hat while watching it and have it typed up in a pdf file. I am not sure how to download a pdf file to my blog, so I may have to figure it out and do it next time. I can copy and paste the post for now. I am so tired, so I hope the directions make sense. I also made some other stuff today too.

Heart Filet Afghan

Do you like it????? I love hearts.

Here you all go. I got the pattern from a friend. It is a quick pattern. It took me about 2 days total because of all the distractions, but I even have the ends woven in. I hate doing that most of all, but with the filet pattern, I couldn't just crochet over them. I used about 5 1/2 balls of Vanna's Choice in a dark purple.

Hopefully this will work now. I will try to add some pictures. I a also currently working on a filet heart blanket and I will post a picture when I get it all done. I have been trying to unpack too, but hard to get motivated. Glad the holidays are over though now. Can't wait for Daytona next month. Until then we will have to see who makes it to the super bowl and crochet lots of stuff.

Well, I was going to post some new pictures of the snow and the dogs, but for some reason it will not let me. I guess I will try again later. Been trying for the last hour, and it just gives an error.
The weather forcaster job here in Colorado should be mine. Obviously all that money they have spent on those Doppler Radar systems, and they still have no clue.
Last night the forcast said we may get one inch of snow, and lo and behold we woke up to about 3 inches and by the time I took Don to work at 9 am there was like 4 1/2. I will try to get the pics uploaded as soon as I can.

Ringing in the New Year

Closer view of shawl. Pattern can be found at It is Pattern # LW1698. I used the yarn and hook that was on the pattern, but the shawl was really small, so I just did several more pattern rows for the length that I finished it as. I did a shell border though.
Kitchen set for a lady in Don's office.
I am back again. Just had a very good New Year's weekend with a visit from my friend from a couple of my groups named Pam. Her and her husband Buzz (Leonard) came on New Year's Day. We were supposed to be unpacking boxes and instead we did more talking and visiting. LOL

I did finish the shawl, didn't like the border on the pattern, so I made my own. I gave the shawl to Pam for coming to visit and helping out with what she did. Today we made the turkey that I had gotten for Thanksgiving and didn't cook because of the move. I made home made stuffing. YUMMY!!! It was a wonderful dinner.
Here's some pictures that I haven't posted.
