Time Flies

My, how time flies! It's Friday, my favorite day, already. I have been super busy at work but have caught up with a few of you during the week, as much as I could anyways.

On the hooky front I am going to town with hats. They are such a super quick project to sit with in front of the tv when I get home every day, that is a no brainer. I have been brain dead most every day when I get home from work and all I want to do is sit there with my large glass of tea, crochet, Leo next to me with the tv on, until bedtime (which isn't too long).

We had some storms yesterday. Of course Leo did his shaking and this time panting. By the time he got to the panting, the storms were gone and it was just raining. Today is a rain day here. I am so hoping he gets in his little house and chills for the day but I fear it won't be so. I just hope we don't have any thunderstorms, which I doubt because it's not a warm front hitting a cold front. Can you believe this - it's going to be in the 40's again! As soon as this front clears it will be 40's at night at least until the end of next week. I just did turn on the a/c Sunday and now I have to turn the heat back on. Simply amazing. I thought we were done with the chilly stuff. But ya know what? I noticed that my hummingbirds are not back yet. They normally are already here April 1st. This is the first year they haven't been back by now.

I know it's hard to see this pic but it's a birthday present for a little girl turning 7 tomorrow. I used up some purple scraps I had to make the bag and I'm going to put $7 in change in it for her. This worked up fairly quickly in one of my evenings vegging in front of the tv. It has a cute little flower on it but it's hard to see.

Does this play tricks with your eyes? I didn't join my rounds. This hot pad and the two below are for my ex-step-sister who is having a house warming party at the end of this month. Again, I was trying to use up scraps I have of some of my cotton. I'm may try to go, she is in NC, but if not then I'll send them. I also have made some hats to send with these for her church. They have what they call a coat closet and although I don't have any coats to contribute I can contribute some hats to help keep some heads warmy. I will probably make a couple more hot pads too, I have time.

None of these pics is good in lighting or color. That's my ipad for ya. I'm having a problem with my phone and my email. I tried to send pics that way because they are usually better in color, but my email on my phone would not send them to me at work. :o( That means a dang trip to Verizon tomorrow.

Well that's about all I have for now. I hope you've had a wonderful week and that the wonderfulness :o) continues. Cya soon!



  1. The little bag is very cute - I'm sure the little girl will love it. The potholders look great - they always make a good gift. Have a great weekend. :)

  2. I am inviting you to come and be part of my blog hop:

  3. what a great idea for a 7 year olds birthday. I think I'll do that for my nieces next year. Love the flower hot pad. Can you share the pattern?

  4. I think your round p otholder looks quite vintage . . and I like the fact thatyou didn't join the rounds . . gives it more of the vintage feel.

  5. Hummingbirds April 1st? Thanks, I didn't know that. Last year was the first time we ever put out a feeder and we got nothing. I think it may have been too late. Maybe this year they'll show. I should move the feeder out back with the girls.


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