And make me willing to obey you!

a major set back

Ok here it is! A major boo boo I could cry but I'm not going to. I was over half way done on this Lords Supper. I figured I should complete it since its been over 2 years since I started it. I'm not going to try and patch it but I'm going to start over. I have no idea how this hole cam about since I kept it in a bag but oh well it just wasn't meant to be..
  If I can patch it without it looking a mess I will try but if not I'll start over! What would you do?

Isn't this magnolia flower awesome? It was on my neighbors tree and smelled awesome!

I found this pic and thought WOW!!

These were from my hubby on Mothers Day this year. He is so sweet to me! He even bought me shelves for my guest room that's being transformed into a craft room. I'll take pics when I'm done so you can see it.

God has been good to me I love Him very much and I thank Him for all He's done in my life.
Remember what He gave so we can live!

Busy busy busy

This is the angel that hung over the Blue Angel Motel on Fremont St here in Las Vegas. She was recently removed after being there for over 35 years. Isn't she awesome? The motel got torn down but they saved her!

I found this crochet case and am attempting to recreate it. It is so pretty. I hope I can do it I'll keep you posted.

I'm in the process of learning to sew. So far so good. I'm very new to it all. I'm turning my guest bedroom into a nice craft room. I recently bought a cute little dining table I'm going to paint to put my sewing machine on. I'll take pics when I'm done. I've been searching Pinterest for ideas. Do any of you have any ideas of what I need in my craft room? What's in yours?

Ok be blessed and continue praying for our world, it's in a mess right now and seems to be getting worse by the minute!

Stitches West Show

This was the door to get into the Stitches West Show.

This is what I saw first thing. Lots and lots of yarn goodness

There was lots of books but only beginning crochet books or crochet clothing books which I needed none of! 

There was so much yarn but very expensive. I could buy at any yarn store if I wanted. The yarn I was looking for wasn't even there, what a bummer, back to the net to get my yarn. I really wanted some cool crochet hooks or such but the only one I found was a glass hook size K which I wasn't interested in. I was so disappointed there wasn't even thread there. 

Lots of cloth items

This is the Knitmore Girls from the same name of their podcast. It's a knitting podcast but I really like listening to them. They inspired me to knit socks.

This will be the last show I go to. I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about. But it's really aimed at knitters or spinners no Crocheters. Once I saw it Im done.

Now I need to attend the Crochet Guilds Show maybe they will have what I'm looking for? What do you think?

San Francisco trip

Terry and I at wharf waiting for Alcatraz cruise

Isn't it awesome, I'd love to be on this ship


This is the front gate going into Chinatown! I bought the most awesome earthy tea.


Terry having an Irish coffee, 


This is me waiting for the tram at Alcatraz.what else should I do?


This is the first thing I saw when I walked into the Stitches West show. There was very expensive yarn everywhere and there was not much of crochet items for me to purchase.


Here's a pic of the Knitmore Girls. I tried waiting in line to talk to them but it was way long. So I decided to skip it and just take a pic of them.


These are the seal lions at the end of Pier 39 they were all asleep

This is the big old sea gull waiting to eat our sourdough bread

This young lady makes these cute sourdough bears everyday we were there.

We had a really great time. I did lots of walking boy was I tired and my poor knees were not happy with it at all. But I'd do it again if Terry would like too.
My poor puppies missed us like crazy. Teacup would hardly eat and she sat where I sit the whole time I was gone. I don't have any idea how she will do when I go to our next trip for 2 weeks. Any ideas for support for her?

Aunty and cooking

Here I am in my cooking class at Sur la Table. Oh what fun! I made the most wonderful salmon dish. I love salmon so that's why I took the class. And it turned out great and yummy! I'd like to take more classes in the future.
This is my nephew Ryan. He's my oldest sisters youngest son. He's a very sweet young man.


Please pray for peace. 
We are in such turmoil in the Middle East and the souls are suffering.
