I have all my Easter Knitting and Crocheting done!!
I am now working on a pair of socks.


 You can see the difference
in when they are reflecting and when they are not in these pictures.
 I thought these headbands came out cute!!
 The apple tree and the Strawberries are blooming!! I really hope we get some of those yummy Granny Smith Apples this year!!
It has been pretty cold the last couple of days. But I checked out my garden. It only has leaf lettuce in it right now. Anyway in about a week I will be able to cut some!! It is still quite wet on the ground and mushy walking out there.The Irises have their nice green leaves poking up. Soon we will see buds on them.
Have a great day!!
God Bless you!!

Hi!! You all!!

I have been doing a lot of knitting for Easter. Working on some Granny Smith Ponies.. 

 Reflective Hats!!
This one has a lace pattern
This one is for a boy!!
 And Reflective Wrist bands.
I really like this yarn. I got it from Hobby Lobby. It is the I Love This Yarn Reflective. 
I just would like for them to get a lot more colors of it. I can only find orange and yellow.

In the garden I have Leaf Lettuce up. I am really ready to see it grow enough to cut. 
I love leaf lettuce. Especially on sandwiches. A little meat and a LOT of lettuce!!

You all have a great day!!
God Bless You!!

Went to Hobby Lobby to look for that Reflective yarn that Red Heart makes. Well it seems that my Hobby Lobby is discontinuing Red Heart yarn. Anyway they have 2 colors of I Love This Yarn with reflective thread in it. So I made a hat.

The top one I didn't use the flash on. The bottom one I did. So you can see how it reflects.
They only have bright yellow and orange colors. It would be great if they would add some more like blue and green. Anyway all in all I think this yarn is really interesting!!

Today my neighbor had his tractor and trailer out and he was raking up pine needles!! I really needed some for around my blueberry bushes!! (they love pine needles) So I went to ask him for some of them. He brought them over and even helped me put them around the bushes!! Yay!! 



I also got to check out my strawberry plants today. They overwintered great!! There is a lot of green there!! I am hoping to have a great garden year this year!!

God Bless You!!

I made this Pink Panther and Rub My Belly Kitten for two of my granddaughters
 for Valentines day. 

 The yarn was worsted weight and a really small Crochet Hook. Made them rough on the fingers. But I think they came out cute!!
I also made some Microwaveable Heating pads for my other grandchildren. I used Cotton material with hearts and chocolates printed on them. I filled them with rice and Dried Lavender flowers. They were so happy. They use them when their legs get cramps in them at night. We used to call it growing pains. I forgot to take pictures of the heating pads though.

Ok!! So the Crochet Crowd on face-book is having a Crochet along. It is a Kaleidoscope Throw!!

So for some reason I started it. I guess it will become a Christmas present for someone. But anyway here is a picture of my start.

THe motifs get put together as you crochet along, so this will be interesting.

Otherwise I have been knitting a lot of scarves for Christmas presents too!! I wanted to do some lace scarves. So I went on a search and found some patterns and started at it. Then I wanted to try some Ruffly Scarves with that Ruffly yarn stuff. I found that they were way easier to crochet, than to knit them. So that is what I did!!





As you can see, I have been quite busy. My creative Juices are flowing again!!
God Bless You All!!

Picked Blackberries this morning!! Put them up in the freezer. My freezer is getting full of berries.

This field of yellow flowers is right outside my back door. The sun made them look really bright.

I have been knitting on socks lately. I have been trying to use up some of my scrap yarn so they have some interesting stripes on them.


Everyone have a great day!!
 God Bless You!!
