Hello.. thanks for stopping in for a visit. I have been working on a 2nd "Lucy Bag" using the design by Lucy at Attic24 blog. I am using the Premier Home cotton yarn I got a while back. I was wondering how tall I was going to make it and for this photo I put a bag of fiberfil inside it and I realize that this would be a perfect size right now! I will do a shell border and some long handles. I'll show you how it turns out. I think I will take this to New Orleans with me for a shopping bag. :-)
I forgot to show you this photo - both of our grandsons had their birthday last week. Caleb turned 6 and Hayden turned 7 - this was at Hayden's birthday dinner and they sang happy birthday to them both. In my last post about Easter I showed the boys opening gifts and a question was posed - do we give gifts for Easter in the USA? So, I wanted to clarify that we had a combination Easter and Birthday party here. :-)
I found a few more ceramic bunnies on Etsy - :-) Time to put them away until next year but I thought I'd show you the new girls.. one is knitting and one is sweeping. Aren't they cute? I actually keep them in my china cabinet among the dishes, so I get to see them all year.
Now - I want to tell you that when Dayle retired I insisted he get a colonoscopy while we were still on his work insurance - he'd never had one. Long story short, they found cancer, performed surgery a week later to remove it, got it before it spread and it saved his life. He had a follow-up procedure yesterday and they removed 3 polyps (those are the things that can turn to cancer). The reason I am telling you this story is that if you have never had a colonoscopy - please get one, especially if you're over 50 or have a history of any colon cancer in your family. THERE ARE NO SYMPTOMS IN THE EARLY STAGES.
OK, time to pack my swim bag and head out. I hope you have a fabulous weekend. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
