Hello friends! Did you have a good weekend? We had a nice relaxing one. I got the crochet hat done for my nephew's little girl. I am quite pleased with how the colors all work together with the flower I made to embellish it with. But I think I need a better head display form than my upside down vase. :-)
I am very pleased with the 3 color flower came out against the pretty turquoise hat. I used my new KnitPicks yarn and it's lovely to work with. Like painting in yarn.
I looked in my button collection and did not find just the right button, so on Saturday Dayle took me out for teriyaki dinner and afterwards we went to Craft Warehouse to look for just the right button. Gadzooks.. don't go there for buttons. They only sell them in big expensive bags, not in 3 packs like they should. I ended up buying a bag for $5.99 for ONE button and then when I got home I looked in my sewing bag and found a better one that I already had. LOL!
We had lots of fun at the birthday lunch and I gave my 2 friends who were celebrating their birthdays a crocheted stuffed heart and then they exchanged gifts and then they even gave ME something so I wasn't left out! LOL! Below are some of the fun things that were exchanged.
I snapped a photo of the second meal we prepared in our new Instant Pot - it was pot roast with potatoes and carrots. It was delish!
My daughter Amy who lives way far away in Ohio posted this photo of my two granddaughters having a great time splashing in a creek on a warm day. I just love how much they enjoy water.. like their mama and grandma.
Our daffodils are opening up just today!
I will pick a bouquet soon. If I leave them outside they get holes eaten in them by slugs and full of dirt and mud from rain splashing up into them.
I love how they spread on their own.
The Hyacinth is opening!
And the Daphne is ready for me to pick a little bouquet to put on the table between our chairs where we'll get whiffs of their spectacularly exotic perfume often.
Could I ask you to keep Dayle in your thoughts and prayers? He goes into surgery tomorrow morning for a hernia repair resulting from his colon cancer surgery. I'll let you know how he's doing next time I post. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
