Haven't Posted in A Long Time.......

I have been so busy, that I have forgotten that I have a blog.  LOL
Well, so much has happened but I will only go into a few things.
My daughter left Florida, got divorced and has been abroad. She lives with her boyfriend and his parents in a very large, comfortable home.  She has been to Poland and is going to Ireland and Poland again shortly.  I miss her so very much.
My Son has been engaged , graduated from Culinary Arts school and now un-engaged. Oy Vay !!!
My brother-in-law has been living with us for a year and a half now.  Don't ask !!!
I have been teaching beginner crochet and Toothbrush Rug making.  Love to teach.
Hubby had a tumor removed, went through 6 weeks of radiation and thank goodness he's ok.
I guess that's all the news for now.
Oh, and unfriending negative people in my life has been very difficult.

Over and out for now.

Crocheted Star Afghan in the Round



This is the start of my 12 pointed star afghan.  This baby eats yarn like crazy.  Eventually I hope to have it cover a queen sized bed.  I have a long way to go, but this is a start.
Crocheted Basket With Cording



My daughter Hillary asked me to crochet her this basket, so here it is.  It was a bit hard on my hands, but well worth it.  She loved it.  Now to make the bread basket.
I used Bonnie Craft Cord.

Crocheting For a Change Part 2

Left off the photo of the bag. Really had fun with this one.





Tea Pot Doll Brooch

Beaded Art Dolls is a yahoo group that I am part of.  The last group project was to make a teapot doll.  I didn't want to make a very large one, so I made mine a brooch.    I love doing bead embroidery.  I prefer making it in a 3D way rather than flat.  I really enjoyed making her.  Her little face is looking through between the pot and the handle.

Next project is a beaded doll hat of sorts.  Must find a hat today or I will make another brooch.

After One Week on the SHD...

Ok...this was great !  I lost 10 pounds and Jeff lost about 4.  We are going to  continue with this for a while.  One week on, one day off with healthy eating and back on again.  The food has been very satisfying thus far.   If you love veggies than it's great.  Still have fruit and meat on certain days too, even rice or for this week we are using bulgar wheat.  I'll keep updating.

Sacred Heart Diet and Crochet

Jeff and I have decided to go on the Sacred Heart Diet for one week, to cleanse our bodies of "junk".  Soup, soup and more soup with some extras every day.  Doing this together is really a great thing, because I don't think we could ever do this individually.
We have also given up coffee for a while.  Tea without sugar...maybe honey at times and some skim milk. Or a squirt of lemon.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of the week goes and what happens after that.  There is a continuing program to follow, but the book is $15.  We'll see.
Soup all day today and tonight we have a special treat of a large baked potato with lots of butter .... LOL.  Looking forward to that for sure.

On another note...I am making crocheted bowl sets with nylon cording.  Hoping to sell some at the Church show on the 13th.  Martha and I are sharing a table.  I will be bringing my small table to display some jewelry too.  I have so many pieces, mostly bracelets, so hopefully I'll sell some of them.  Lots of scarves too and couple of hats and a bag.  $$$$ need it.  LOL  It will be a fun time.  Marty is a really nice person.  Enjoy being with her. 7 AM  to 1 PM.  Early to bed and early to rise with a wake up call at 6:30.  Oh boy.
