Hump Day

Good morning!  It’s not a good morning for me. I woke up with stomach cramps and 3 hours later I am still having them. Not sure what’s up with that but I must have caught something somewhere. I’m at work but I seriously thought about calling in this morning. But I am here. The conscientious employee that I am. :o) Seriously, I think I have only called in sick 3 times in the last 12 years. Shouldn’t I get an award for that??? Oh, yea, I have a job. That’s reward enough I guess. lol.


Anyways, I wanted to show you what is and has been on my hooks lately. Not a lot but wanted to share these with you. I have 3 babies coming that I need to crochet for. Well, one was born this weekend when she should have waited until the 11th. She was anxious to meet her mom, dad and two brothers! This blanket is for her. It’s made out of the box stitch. It took a little getting used to but once I had it down pat I have been sailing. It makes a very lovely fabric, wouldn’t you agree? I think that I will just keep going with it as it is and not do the decrease to turn it back around and make the square.  It will be a triangle blanky and I will do a border on the two straight sides. Something different. No one will have a blanky like it!  I love the mint green color.  I think I might do the other two blanky’s in the same stitch. It’s quick and easy and I love the drape of it. 



And I have been tinkering with key fobs. I showed you the initial one in an earlier post. These are so quick and easy to make as well. I made two others but they have found homes and I didn’t get a pic of them. One was a star and one was a fancy heart. I so love doing little stuff.  The little star man is kind of a weird little thing but I think he’s cute. He’s 3 dimensional. He was kind of hard to do too. It started out as a six pointed star but after the 4th point I decided to put a head on him. lol. Works for me!


So that’s all I have going on at the moment. I hope this finds you all well and happy. Have a wonderful hump day ya’ll! Cya soon!




PS/ I’m using Windows Live Writer for the first time on this post. IT recently upgraded my Outlook to 2010 and when I send myself pics it’s not like it used to be so this popped up this morning! I know Pammy Sue uses it so I figured I’d give it a whirl. Not sure about it…I’ll let ya know.


  1. There's colds and bronchitis symptoms running around here. I'm knocking on wood every chance I get not to come into contact with any germs. Feeding chickens and rabbits every day keeps me washing my hands with 'Germ X', maybe that'll do the trick for me. ;)
    Boring around here. (Still)Patiently waiting for the elusive Christmas rush.

  2. I LOVED Windows Live Writer. I never use Blogger anymore.

    Cute little blankie. Baby blankets are fun!

  3. Just LOVE that green box stitch blanket! What a wonderful combo! =)

  4. I love doing the box stitch and your blanket is absolutely the BOMB with it. Baby will look lovely with it wrapped around her. The key fobs are also cool -- fun idea!

  5. OMG . . I had stomach cramps for about 5 days last week . . they were horrible. I slept on the sofa for three night . . didn't want to be far from the bathroom , which is downstairs. Didn't get dressed for 3 days of the 5.

    If I had been working, I would have been at work, but I would have made the kids miserable . . LOLOL

    Ended up drinking some of thet pink thick liquid stuff . . can't remember the name . . . and I have ony done that once before in my life . . and that was at the beginning of my teaching career . . so I knew I felt horrible.

    Just keep yourself "going" and eat those fruits to help yourself out.

  6. Hello,
