Beautiful Days

Do you remember being this young and carefree?  I remember playing pretend and being the female hero of my time.  Back then, it was Charlie’s Angels.  My two playmates, Chris and Jana, that were my neighbors, would pretend to be Charlie’s Angels and solve crimes and put the bad guy away.

This is my real life super hero.  This is Lindy my daughter.  She just got her acceptance letter to nursing school.  She has worked so hard and has done so well.  I’m glad to see all her hard work pay off!  Look at that smile!  So stinking CUTE!

 

I found this neighbor in my front yard today.  A lady down the street owns it.   It’s not the first time he’s gotten out.  It’s such pretty fall weather.  I don’t blame him for wanting some long walks around the hood.

Max, playing with the puppies.

 

We all came out for some play time with the neighbors.  That baby girl there abosultely loves these puppies.  She was laying down with one drapped across her neck and the pup was asleep.

I made a super warm and comfy cowl, but it was liked so well by the recipient, that it flew out the door before I could take a picture.  That happens sometimes.  I’m working on some baby tops for now.

 

Babies Everywhere

Hot off my needles is the Reversible Cable Blanket.  I love this blanket.  This is the fourth one I’ve made.  No matter what yarn you choose, they all look stunning.  I’ve used Simply Soft from Hobby Lobby, and 100% acrylic I Love This Yarn, and most recently Plymouth Yarn; Encore Chunky Tweed.  If you’re using it for a baby blanket, it needs to be washer/dryer friendly.  We all know how messy those wee little ones can be!

4 week old Goldendoodle puppy

The most accurate picture of the red color is the one here with Max on my lap.  It’s a deep rich burgundy red, not neon pink/red.  This is for our new grandson, Henry, that lives in Wyoming.

Played outside with the Goldendoodle puppies today.  They are still little babies.  They’ve just started to act like little puppies, growling, barking, chewing each other.  They are still a little shy and learning about the big new world of the back yard.  Only two more weeks and they will be ready to go.  A new momma came by today to see her petite little baby girl

My Mom – Joyful-Expressions blog.

 

I want to say “Hello” to all my new followers from my mom’s blog, Joyful Expressions.  Getting high praises from my mom is a BIG deal!

I was looking through some photos and had to share some fun pictures.  My mother has always sewn, as long as I can remember.  She used to make  me scrubs to wear to the hospital for work.  Back then, I didn’t have a specific colored uniform and could wear whatever I wanted, otherwise,  I bet she would still be making me scrubs.  My mom loves prints and you can do a lot of fun prints with scrubs.

Here is a cute picture of some outfits my mom made for my boys, John and Jacob.  This photo is from 23 years ago!  It’s summer and I’m pretty sure she made this for July 4th.  I like they have the same theme and colors, but still unique for each boy.

Here is the quilt she made me.  We have a chicken coop with chickens and lots of fresh eggs.  Mom made me a chicken quilt.  Isn’t it pretty.  For you quilters, check out the feathered stitching pattern on the quilt.  You can see it well around the center chicken.  It’s hanging on the wall in our sunroom.

This is one of my favorites too.  My husband, Len, is a retired Fire Fighter.  She made this for our first grandson, Xander.   Here is Max, of course.  He is always around in everybody’s business.

 

We had a GREAT day yesterday and welcomed 11 new puppies from Crystal.

Here are some of our pups that have grown up.  You may remember Mom’s dogs, Jackie and Josie.   They were some of our Goldendoodles.

We get tons of compliments on our dogs.  It has a lot to do with their DNA and great parents.  I like to think those puppies are imprinted with the magic and love that is our home and it cements all the ingredients for a great dog.

Have a blessed day!
