Multiple Monday

Is it Monday again?? Already??? Holy goes by so quick, does it not?

How was your weekend? Mine was spent mostly at home. I did go to Wally World (Walmart) Saturday morning. I hate going there. I always spend way more than what I had planned when I walked in. Forget lists......I can't stick to them. And I forgot one wasn't on my list. At least not on THAT list. I didn't remember until I got home and was putting things up. Then I remembered that I had put it on the list, just not THAT list. Geeze......where did my original list go to anyways? I can't find the stupid thing.

So anyways...the rest of the weekend was spent either on the couch crocheting or outside. I did manage to rake the back yard and then burn the leaves, and wash the car!! I did piddle a little with plants and such, but my back was killing me so I didn't get a lot accomplished. The raking and burning and washing made me even worse but these were things that I needed to get done. Especially the raking and burning before it gets too hot out to do that. It was a beautiful spring weekend to do that too.

Mr. Lick Lick got in trouble. Oh I wish I'd had my camera with me. I was out back watching the fire when I hear a succession of 'stuff hitting the floor' of the shed. On the third sound I went to the shed. Do you know that that little joker had jumped up one of my shelves (about 3.5 to 4 ft off the floor)and knocked down stuff! Oh I was mad. It's not bad enough that he has to climb through and over everything on the floor but now he's climbing! I promptly got him down and closed the shed door so he couldn't go back in there. He was probably saying 'gee mom, I was just having a bit of fun, I wasn't hurting anything! I didn't break anything!' :o) No but mom had to clean up the mess not Mr. Lick Lick. So he was banned from the shed for a while. I think it about killed him too cuz now he had nothing exciting to do but sniff the yard. You can sniff the yard only so many So he found a nice sunny spot and laid down and took a nap.

I have been working on some heart motifs that are quite large in size. I'm thinking they are about 9"??? I think I mentioned them in an earlier post. It is part of the 12" Hearts and Shells square by Sherry Welch on the HeartMade Blessings site. After fixing the mistakes, I am so taken with this pattern, because I have been looking for a good heart pattern, and this one is a really nice one that the heart actually looks like a heart and not all lopsided. They are easy to pump out and I want to try to put them together for lapghans and afghans. I have been using different color combinations and some of them I just love. I was going to make my younger sister a ripple afghan but I have re-thought that idea and will now use these motifs. I am addicted to them. I just have to figure out how to put them together. I think I have it worked out in my head so we shall see when I get enough done to make a lapghan.

Where ever you are I hope you're having a wonderful day!

PS/another one of my burnings. I think I want to make another one of these. Even though it looks easy it was not. Mostly I think because I used pine. I should have used a better wood.


  1. I like the wood burning alot.

    I have two, well, maybe three, joining methods that are SO EASY to use . . and it is so nice to join as you go . . oherwise I feel swamped.

    If you want, send me a message on RAV and I will get them to you . . I need to check out your pattern and see which would work best.

  2. Hey thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    Love the wood burning, the cats are brilliant. And the crochet hearts sound fabulous, definitely need to see some pictures of those. I'm a long way from making hearts, I've only just grasped the concept of granny squares!

  3. Paula - I will come see you on Ravelry!

    Girl - Thank you! I know I need to get some pics of the hearts...if you can do the granny's you can do these... so easy....I have faith in you! :o)


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
