Full moon from God 7/2014

Have I told you my friends what an awesome God I have?
He loves me as  He loves you.
  He walks this earth and sends His love to us always.
He also sends us companions, angels , friends, and spouses.
  We are blessed to have a God that watches over us every minute of every day!
I've been blessed in my life with all of you in it.
My prayer is that you know that you are all loved in the same way as I am.

July in Vegas, hot, hot, hot!

 This is a little doily I found on the internet on Thursday and I finished it on Friday. It is so cute, I need to block it then I think I'll give it away as a gift to a friend of mine.

 Here's Sissi and Teacup actually liking each other. It's taken awhile for Teacup to welcome Sissi into our pack but she is finally mellowing  to the idea. You can see Pickle in the background, Pickle and Sissi are best of friends.
I found this little caption on Pinterest and it states how I feel sometimes when people ask me what I'm knitting. Nothing against knitting but come on already!
  Speaking of knitting I'm learning to knit socks, it's been real slow because I have so much crochet going on at this time of the year.

  So tell me what are you all working on?

Bounty of 2014

 Thought I'd show you my sweet boy Buster! Just a sweet treat.

Here's my bounty of grapes from my vines this year! I'm thinking of making grape jam or jelly. Have any of you made jam from grapes before? I've never canned before so it will be something new to make. Any advice? Looks yummy, and they are very sweet!

Life with Sissi

This is a follow up of life with Sissi!
We got Sissi from the local pound on Thursday. We paid 210.00 for this sweet dog. My hubby bought her for me for our 40th wedding anniversary gift. I was tickled pink, she was as sweet as can be. We went to purchase her and I informed them I had three dogs at home waiting for her to join them.
  Well we got her home and introduced her to every dog seindividually ad they all seemed fine with her but maybe not my Teacup doxie. She was not thrilled by her at all.
  Come Sunday our Pickle was coughing and feeling sick. We waited till Tuesday and took her to our vet. Then on Wednesday the other two fur babies started getting sick! Now all three were as sick as can be. Come to find out Sissi had picked up a virus at the pound and got all my fur babies sick, then by Friday she was sick too!
  My little gift cost us around 700.00 by the time they all went to the vet and all their meds.
  Now she is just one of the family she I a as healthy as can be.
  She is a pure delight and has come out of her shell.
  Tho I must tell you it took awhile before Teacup would accept her into the fold. Now they play all the time.
  I just thought I'd share a little of my life with you all!

  I'm crocheting again after getting Sissi I took a week off because all I wanted to do was play and hold her all the time. Lol. By the time I did get back to crocheting my hands hurt. Have you ever had that problem not crocheting awhile then starting again with hurting hands?
  Ok be blessed my friends and stay cool!

Meet Sissi Poo

 Here she is Miss Sissi Poo we believe she is a mix of Havanese and Poodle. Mostly poodle.we went to the local pound to look at another bigger dog for hubby. I went and looked at all the other dogs while he played with the dog he wanted. But because she was from an abuse and fighting place we decided not to get her.
  The very last dog was this beautiful poodle. I took one look and I just had to have her. They told me she was found in an empty lot wondering around, she had no chip but was well groomed. They also told me she was 9 months old!
She turned out to be 1 1/2 years old per my vet. She is so cute and soft nod cuddly. My doxie is so mad at me because I brought her home to live with us. But as the days go by and I pay loads of attention to Teacup, she is starting to accept her into the pact. As you can tell she has taken over everything and if I wasn't told different she acts just like a 9 month old puppy.
  Terry bought her for me for our 40 th wedding anniversary. I hope to keep her for another 40 years!
  God I'd so good to me!

New puppy

This is my granddaughter Alexandria aka Pickle. Isn't she beautiful? She is working on her own and she attends school also.

  I've been meaning to post on here but for some reason my pictures are not coming through lately. I really need to take some classes on how to operate this mini IPad. I so love it! Thanks Shawn for getting it for me!
  I've got a new fur baby  to show you. She is so sweet. I found her at our local pound. She is so soft and sweet. She promptly got all the other dogs sick with a virus. She ended up costing me some 700.00 dollars later, after they all had to go to the vets.
  But I don't hold it against her. As soon as I can I'll post her pictures.

 I've taken up knitting socks. I've wanted to learn for a long time. And the opportunity arose so I have my second class this Wednesday.
  I've been playing so much with Sissi the new puppy that I haven't crocheted a lot lately and I have so much to do. I'm still working on The Lords Supper and a baby blanket with dress for a neighbor.

Ok be blessed with joy my friends!

 My. Lords Supper slowly coming along. But very enjoyable. I so love doing this, I really have no idea what to do with it once I'm done. I'm thinking of framing it.
Here's my sweet grand daughter Izabella, she is such a sweet heart, I love her very much!

So tell me friends what are you upto now that winter is over and summer is on it's way? It's been non stop wind here in Vegas this spring.

  I'm making a baby blanket for a new mother a few houses down the street. Her little girl will be here August 1st. She is so sweet and new to the neighborhood.

  I'm so blessed living in Vegas no bad weather to say other than heat when it warms up, but thank God for air conditioners. I grew up with swamp coolers but I totally prefer air conditioners. Do you have them in your house..Scripture for today 
Holy, Holy, Holy
lord God Almighty,
Which was, and is,
and is to come.
  Rev. 4:8 kjv
