Summer Splendor in Pink

Pattern:  Summer Splendor by Denise Augustine
Archived Pattern HERE. You'll have to copy and paste onto a plain white background to read it!
Thread:  Red Heart Classic #10
Hook: Size 1.75 mm
Size: Mine came out to 14.5"

This doily felt like it took me forever! Either I was slow or it really does take a long time to make all those bobbles.
Don't worry...I'll be changing my template AGAIN soon. All those grannies are making my head spin!

Morning Walk & A Message

Janie and I are so color coordinated!
That was totally an accident.
See that lovely contraption I have to wear around my waist?
It actually feels good. I only have to wear it when I'm on my walk now.

Have a good one.

This is what it looks like at my house as I type this. I took this picture about 5 minutes ago. Yikes!

I've done most of my recovering in a $40 lawn chair that I bought at Wal-Mart. It's the most comfortable one for me. Can you believe that? I have it sitting in my living room in place of the $700 chair that usually sits there. Ha-ha-ha. Nice. I'm a classy lady. You can also see my TV tray that we bought at Target sitting next to it holding my crochet stuff. Nothing but the best for me!

I'm working on another doily.


I'm back to work today. Oh the joy!

Audrey the Doily

I've been working on this one for a while now and finally got her finished up yesterday and on the blocking board. I used Nezli Gelin Thread in dark and light gray and a 1.75mm hook. Mine came out to 24 inches in diameter.  

Pattern is #9 in this book.


Still recuperating and doing well.
See ya.

Pushing My Face

Just a few crochet pictures to push my sickly mug down the page...enjoy!

(The above is for you, Susanne...just a little motivation!)

Credit listed on photos or link given below them.


I'm doing just great, you guys! I'm walking farther and feeling better every day. It's just amazing how resilient the human body can be! I've got several weeks to go to be back to "normal," but I'm definitely headed that direction. Thank you all for your well wishes.

MIA and Miss Grumpy Panties...

But with good reason!

I almost didn't post this out of pure vanity, but what the hell...I'm human.

In all my grumpy glory...
The day after surgery, July 2nd.

(The Captains surgery to remove the camera from his a** was the next day. Hahahaha! Not really.)

Hospital food, bleh!

I ate the fruit and that's it. Somebody in the kitchen was overzealous with the salt on the other two items. And then an hour or so later, I had the worst gas pains of my life (TMI?). I was bawling and squalling because it hurt so bad. If any of you have ever had your tummy opened up for surgery, you know what I mean. DO NOT EVER eat fruit anytime soon after your body has been opened up!

My brand-new back hardware.

Installed from the front through the stomach, and then screwed down tight through two more incisions in my back. I'll spare you those pictures. Gross! And OUCH!

The Captain hung my crocheted bunting to brighten up my room. I finished it the day before surgery.

We thought our Momma would never be home again, but she is!

I made these two sets before I left for the hospital.
What a super-cute pattern and easy too!

I first saw it on Linda's Blog and followed her link to make my own.
Thanks, Linda!


Not sure exactly when, but I'll be back soon.
