Second time.....

I had quite a lengthy post almost done on this here blogpress on my iPad and lost it when I tried to add my pics to it. I'm so bummed. I'm not going to try to rewrite what I wrote, it's too much. I'm not too happy with this blogpress.

My other post was about my work week and that lead to me being late with Valentines Day and a swap I was involved with on Cindy Bee's blog. I was paired with Beth aka Granny Bee. I received from her two hearts, both hand made, and one was a brown heart with wire around it. It was perfect because it symbolizes my own heart, kinda sorta. If you know me then you'll know why I say that. Thank you Beth! I love them both. I haven't heard if she received mine, I'm assuming she did. Hope so anyways!

I also have been working on what is going to be a late, damn it, birthday present for one of my besties in FL. I don't know why but for the last few years I have thought her birthday was the 22nd of February. The other day I saw it said on FB it was the 21st!! Dang it. And I had started something for her for her birthday and just wasn't feeling the love in it so I stopped working on it and started working on another and now it's going to be a day late. :o( It's been just a very stressful week.....

On a better note, we finally have gotten some rain! Over 2 inches overnight from that storm front that came through. I was outside yesterday raking and burning until my back couldn't stand it anymore. I got about half raked and maybe a fifth burned. Better than none I suppose. My back was killing me when I got done. I took a shower, sat in my chair and took a pain pill. I hated that because those pills suck. But it helped my back for a while. I was very stiff getting out of bed this morning. Sux getting old! lol

I am also working on the little jacket in Sweet Pea and Chocolate to go with the turtle shell and hat for my friend Debi. I should have that done today or tonight. I love how it's coming together. The pattern is on page 80 of the newest Crochet Today!

Also in the future wip's are two dolls that I've been commissioned to do and an elephant! So I am going to be busy. These are in addition to the 24 hats and trying to get inventory built up. Below are a few more hats that I've done.

The colors aren't good dang it...the top one is a seafoam and dark rose heather, the second one is a dark rose heather and a Vanna color that I can't recall the name of, it was in my stash. And the last one is a red with colored flecks in it and a gold color.

I hope all of these pics are ok. It's hard to tell if they are clear on here because they're small. I guess the only way I'll know is when I post.

So....sorry I'm delayed in has a way of getting in the way of the leisurely things in life. My life is full, that's for sure. I hope your life is a ray of sunshine right now and for always! Cya soon!!
