It's finished y'all!  I have an idea for how to display my crocheted doily.  I have an old sheet that is white with yellow roses on it.  I plan on spray painting a large embroidery hoop white, putting some of the sheet in the hoop and then tacking down the doily to it.
We are planning a redo of our bathroom and I want to paint it yellow and do the trim in white.  I think this lovely piece will look great in there!
I also made the cutest little cotton headband yesterday during my lunch.  Here it is:
Ain't it pretty?!  I took copies of the pattern and shared with the girls at our crochet club last night.  Two of the women began working on theirs last night because they loved it as much as I do.
Tomorrow, I'll be taking my baby to have his kindergarten physical and shots.  I cannot believe he starts school in August--makes me sad....
I'll be taking the day off and sleeping late in the morning.
Then, after the doctor's visit, me and Robbie will be making these...
Neat-o, right?!

Have a wonderful day today!  Hug somebody's neck!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I truly hope you have a wonderful day today!  Even though mine didn't get off to a good start, because I woke up at 5:00 with a coughing fit and COULD NOT go back to sleep, I am determined that today will ROCK!
Our kids get out at 12:00 PM today and we have staff development this afternoon.  High schools in our county will be having parent conferences. 
My crochet project from yesterday has grown!  I am on Row #15 of 26, so hopefully I'll be finished soon!  I plan on taking it with me to crochet club tonight--we'll see what I'm able to get done!
Here's a picture of the progress so far:

Hey Y'all!
Just wanted to share a few pictures of Robbie's first karate class last week.  He was HILARIOUS and had a blast!  Hope you enjoy!

Also, I have began to crochet a doily using thread instead of yarn.  This is what I've done so far...wish me luck!  If it turns out well, I plan on making a larger one using cotton yarn as a baby blanket for my sister's peanut on the way!

Make today a great one!

Crochet Class is Underway!

Hey Y'all!  I hope you're finding a way to enjoy this gloomy day of overcast and drizzle if you're here in NC.  Surely the sun will come out soon!Last Monday, Feb. 28th, I began our crochet class at our church.  We had 22 show up.  Some seasoned, some could do a chain stitch, and some were brand new beginners.  We meet every Monday and Thursday night in our church's fellowship hall.  We have been having a WONDERFUL time!  If you live nearby, please come join us.  This past Monday night I think there was around 26.My friend Beverly is working on her first granny square and is rockin' it out!Here are some pictures from our first meeting!

To Cheer You Up....

Oh, how I hate Monday mornings.  I know I should be energized and geared up--ready for the week and all, but I hate them.  I hate getting out of a warm bed snuggled up to my sweet boy and our dog because Big Daddy has already left.   I hate getting to school and remembering that I have forgotten to take my blood pressure medicine for the third day in a row--but did remember that I had one "Lone Ranger" pill left from my old prescription somewhere in my purse.  I hate having to climb in a cold vehicle and wait for it to defrost while we're already late and Robbie is begging me to turn on his "Rescue Heroes" DVD.  But...I am thankful for every second God gives us.  I'm glad that I'm still alive and here to be of help to somebody.  I just hate Monday mornings...you feelin' me?
