Greetings From The Beach.....








Hello everyone....

Arrived at the beach on Saturday afternoon....

A very long drive, but we made it!

I got a beautiful big new IPad for my bday, from my family, but for some reason, the blogger app
Did not get moved over, so I am posting from my old IPad ๐Ÿ˜ณ

The weather has been fabulous so far....sunny....hot and humid...

Please forgive the silly order of photos....and if they seem out of sync....best I can do for now!

It was cloudy this evening, so not a great sunset....

We have been walking....and enjoying the sunshine....dinner on the porch!

I know most of you are still enduring crazy weather.....sorry! HAHAHAHAHAHA!







Found this Barbie right out near our beach chairs....crazy,eh?

So....that's it for now....hope you can follow what I am writing....๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Must figure out how to get the blogger app on my beautiful new BIG iPad!

Hope you are all well....

         See you soon....

               Cheers!

What I've Been Up To........





While I have been recuperating from my hideous Bronchitis...I had alot of couch time, to spend crocheting.

I got a cute little sweater done up, to match the hat I had shown you last week... 

I sure hope they fit Miss N!!!

I took this picture over 2 weeks ago, when my son visited with her.

Look at how small she is compared to his hands!!!

Just like a wee doll...for sure ๐Ÿ’“

She continues to gain weight, and is doing well...

I will sure miss my 2 beautiful granddaughters when I am away....

 


My daughter Erika and Miss V sent me this lovely bouquet to cheer me up...

The days were very dark and cloudy, and i didn't get a very good shot...but believe me...they were gorgeous!!! I have saved several stocks of the pink Heather...

And one of my little Kalanchoes from last Summer, surprised me with a few blooms this week...incredible little plants!! 
 




I got quite a bit more accomplished on the Grey Granny Square afghan...

It is packed...to be worked on while I am away...

Along with a lot of Vanna's Choice Yarn for an unnamed project! 

The pic below says it all...

We pull out early Thursday morning...

And will spend the first night in Lexington Kentucky...

Wish us well...

I will be reporting next from the B E A C H !!!!!

YIPPEE!! 
Hope you are all well...and not hampered by these crazy bugs floating around...

          See you soon...

                Cheers! :o)

๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•Cousins๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•




Cousins got some quality time together....

Miss V was sooooo thrilled to hold and hug Miss N ๐Ÿ’•

We visited her at home, and really had a nice time....




Back at home....we got busy baking and drawing...

Grilled cheese and cheesies for lunch!







I am writing this on my IPad, as I always need to refresh my skills once a year!

Unfortunately.....I have been struck by the deadly bug, and have not been well for nearly a week now...

I have kept myself busy crocheting....

The Bunny hat I was making, turned out to be waaaay too big for wee Miss N...so I got busy on a much smaller hat for her...I really like the way it turned out!
Hope fully it will fit her....we will see her again this coming weekend....(praying for a full recovery by then).... Boyfriend and I are seeing the Dr tomorrow....he succumbed to this bug on Saturday....I believe there will be antibiotics involved!



A few more washcloths made up....I had depleted my supply over the Christmas holidays...

And I got started on a Granny Square blanket for a Birthday present later in the year....

I am afraid to report that the Campfire Cardigan just did not work for me....

I added a few rows of border, but did not like the results....:o(

I have seen a few on IG, but I don't know how they got the sleeves trimmed down. 

Mine were waaaay too wide...oh well....you win some....you lose some!







So.....that's it for me....

As usual....I can't figure out how to actually add some words at the bottom of my post!

Hope you are all well....

       See you soon....

            Cheers! :o)

Cottage Drives....My Love Of Barns ♥️














We pass by so many beautiful farms on our drives to the cottage...

I am forever taking pics thru the windows!!

Some come out great...some not so great!!

But the best is when we finally reach our destination...

And this gorgeous wee place greets us...

So beautiful....any season of the year...how lucky are we to have her!!!




And...as we are leaving...this view at the point, is another that I love...

Everchanging...always stunning...love it!!

          Hope you are all well...

We are having torrential rain today...and gusty winds...YUCK!!

I need to go out, and would def rather not...but...I need to!!

We had a very enjoyable weekend...

Had our Miss V for a sleepover and a visit with her sweet cousin Miss N...

She was so excited to hold her...and kiss her...and rub her little head!!!

I will share a few pics later in the week...

Time for our trip is getting closer...Hope the weather improves!!

But...at least we will be outside...instead of cooped up in here...geesh!!! 

               Enjoy your day!!!

                           See you soon...

                                Cheers! :o)

What My Crochet Has Looked Like... The Last While....





These are the things that I crocheted as Christmas gifts for all my girls...

Infinity cowls...

Fingerless gloves (made up my own pattern)...

Toques...

Cowls...

Blanket...

Scarf...

Dish cloths...












This sweater to the right...

I had worked on all Summer at the cottage...

It is called "The Campfire Cardigan" by Makeandocrew...

It is basically a big Granny Square...

I got into trouble while trying to add the sleeves...

So...I put it aside...

I think I will actually finish it to my own liking...

I will add a border all around...perhaps 2 pockets...a pompom to the hood, and a string with 2 pompoms at the neck...what do you think????

I just couldn't bring myself to rip it all out...thought it might be cosy for a Summers evening...I'll let you see it when I decide what the heck I am doing... 

 

This is my newest project...for a certain little Missy...

Can you guess what it is...and who for??? ๐Ÿ’“
 










Cat Mats all done...

One already delivered...

Hope to deliver the other 2 this weekend...





Miss V modelled this toque and infinity scarf for me before Christmas...

Such a cutie pie!!

She had picked out the yarn at Michaels with me...the same day she picked some for her wee cousins blanket that I made... ♥️

                                     ******************

Hope you are all well...and enjoying your Winter...

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post...

     Sour Cream coffee cake in the oven...

             Smells delightful...time for a piece and a cuppa!!

                    Enjoy your week... 

                             See you soon...

                                     Cheers!  :o)
