Hello! I've been a while checking back in. It's been a loooooooong week here. My youngest son Matthew has been sick for seven days straight, fighting a cold that turned into bronchitis and an ear infection. My poor baby can't seem to get a break! Midway through the week I was down with a fever also. No cooking or cleaning or laundry being done. Most importantly ( for me! ) no crocheting. It has sucked! I do have a couple of things to show that I did the last time I was at my brothers though. I bought a pattern awhile back, I think it was from stripey blue, and finally decided to try it. I only got the lid done, it was the end of the day by the time I got to this. So I'll have to get the bottom made up. Cute. 
 I also started a tin cover using Attic24's pattern. Still have to finish it. I just noticed that my pictures are awfully blurry. I think I might have to invest in a new camera, the one I have is quite old.
 I did finish my little sprite doll! I saw a second one today that my brother made using bigger eyes and man it made quite a difference. I might have to do another as I'm not entirely happy with this one. At least I got her done!
 On a different note, I bought Pioneer Woman's new cookbook, her second one. I love the first one and I dig her website.
Finally, my husband showed up with yellow roses, one of my fave colors. He's not the most romantic person in the world so it's nice when he actually does something like this. Brightened up my kitchen and cheered me up. So I'm on the mend and looking forward to some crochet time. Course I have all those icky chores and such to catch up on but I'll squeeze it in there somewhere! Everyone have a good weekend!


  1. Ahh... how nice of your hubby. :) I had to chuckle as we had the same idea,I too made Attic24s tin cover this week. :) Go check mine out on my crochetoholic blog. and I also went a step further and made one for my water bottle. I like the Sprite doll. I think she is cute, so sorry about your son, hope he gets well soon. The cookbook sounds good. Have a great weekend..Debb

  2. Hope everyone is finally on the mend! The doll is darling!
