I've been crocheting my little fingers off!!
I made 3 Baby it's Cold Outside sweaters for family expecting babies in the fall. Two boys and one girl. Isn't modern medicine wonderful? Now you can make things in the 'right' color even before a baby is born. The one on top is for the little girl and the other two are for boys. I don't really like the bottom one but........... I'm also making each one of them the 'Seija set' from the 'Stitch 'n Bitch' book. I have the one little girl hat done already and it's adorable. I'll post a pic later this week.
Besides that, I did sell a set of baby sandals with a hat on my store, so I had to make that too because she wanted them for a baby boy and I had listed in pink for a girl. Been busy, let me tell ya!!
I finally gave in and turned the air conditioner on the other day. We've been lucky this year and it hasn't been THAT hot yet so I've been able to talk dh into keeping it off. Finally a couple of days ago when the humidex got to about 105F I gave in. I just couldn't stand it anymore. I know I won't be able to stand the electric bill when it comes in.....but you gotta do what you gotta do, especially live in jolly ol' Texas!!
'Til next time.......................

The funny thing is, every time I go somewhere I go to the dinnerware section and oogle the dishes. I've wanted to get a set like this for a long time but never could afford an 'extravagance' for myself.
As silly as it sounds, I was so thrilled when I saw this set in the box....I was even silly about it. They are apple design to match, how I'm trying to make, my kitchen!
Here's a picture of them.....
Thank you Viqui....you are the best!!!!

I've put that on my store and just know someone's going to swipe it up....lol
I'm working on a couple of Baby it's Cold Outside sweaters for cousins that are having babies in August and October. I'll likely make a matching hat to go along with them and maybe even booties. If I REALLY get ambitious I might make a baby blanket to match, don't know yet.
And, in the meantime I want to keep plugging away at getting items made and added to my Etsy store.
Wish me luck!!

So, we finally got enough money to fix the floor. We ripped up the rug to see that this was not the first time the floor had been fixed. There was a whole patch job done at one time and a brand new rug put over it. I was not amused!!

I've been working on some baby stuff for my Esty shop, mostly slippers. I just finished a baby boy hat last night and haven't taken pics of it yet becausae I'm going to make matching booties. It's cute. Funny thing is, I can't remember my kids ever being that small....lol. I've also made some Mary Janes for adults. My daughter's after me to make her a pair now!!
We almost set a record here in Texas for the month of May. Rain days. Yes, I said RAIN days. (Remind me of this in July/August). We had 21 days of rain in May, missing the record by only 1 day. No kidding!! I kept telling DH we were going to have to start buying wood to build ourselves an ark!!
