Didn't Go Home

 Mornin Ya'll didn't go home but I will be leaving in a couple of hours...I just didn't have any energy yesterday to get up and go...But I got all my things ready last nite..My Daughter In Law went to the hospital again she had contractions the other day but she was only dilated to one..'They said probably within the week. they sent here back home again and last nite she had alot of pressure so the dr. said go to the hospital and they sent her home again saying any time now..that was late last nite..she's having such a hard time..I wonder, You know the baby Shower I'm giving her is this Sunday, If she's going to make it.??? I hope so..WE should have had this Baby shower, but every one had something to do on this date and that one..Nerve racking for sure.. Well so this week will be a little bit busy Tuesday I have a appointment me and Vee. and O my I have to remember to Order the cake..(note to self, Don't Forget) LOL..could you imagine..can't do that. . I'm going to be making these Party tamales...Our theme is a Mexican Fiesta totally different than what most are use to...But in the Latin world that's what they do..My children are half Mexican my two oldest and my three others are half Salvadorean. Any ways I will be making those for the baby shower..I was making a baby blanket but didn't get to finish I thought I would but sometimes my fingers won't let me..everything is off anywho...Suns shinning this morning but It looks a little cloudy in the distance. I'm trying to work on getting that Lap Top so we can chat every morning. I have alot of things in my mind to talk about..I want to see If I can sell some things as I get to know this..and as I'm cleaning up down stairs. I don't know exactly what is left down there but I'm sure there is something good...hummmm will have to see.. boy since I have been writing I'm getting to see I have lost my abilitly to spell and this is sure going to make me catch back up..I guess when you don't do those things anymore it fads away..I used to be a really good speller..When I grew up we had to write spelling words every single day ten times each. and in fifth grade we had penmenship every day..hummm is that how you spell it???  I remember my teacher mrs. Small..My Mom had the same teacher and we both have great hand writing because of her..You know my youngest child can hardly hand write...It's funny how things change over the years.....O yesterday I found one of my Egg platters in the back of my Cabinet here at Mom's...I have my own cabinet with my dishes..well there things I like to use when i'm here and cooking cause I like certain things..LOL...
Pretty .... I have had this for maybe 25 years and I have another one but it's at my house on my white hutch. I love the sweet..I wish the weather would get better so I can have a garden Tea Party...I have so many ideas in my head swimmimg around.
I also wanted to share with you my other three purple doilys that I made ...the star pattern is so versiable you can chose so many colors..

This is the first pattern I showed you I had found this multi colored Purple at the second hand store and used that to make this. The star above was left over from the second hand store...I always look for thread there because you find old thread which in my opinion is better thread than today's and you find some amazing colors..I have bags of thread...but I love it..........

A cute sweet little saying, It's what we all need for each other...don't you think...........!
For some reason this morning I can't wait to go home and play in my garden, wish I had extra money but I don't rite now I want to buy some new things...I want a Sage plant..I had bought one last year with a Rosemary and they just didn't grow..I bought a new Rosemary and it's grown very well...Don't know what was wrong with the two..maybe because they were in pots.......But I don't really think so because my Lemon Thyme grows in a pot...I just think that something was wrong with the plants Mom has a same Rosemary and it did the same Nothing....It's like it's dormit.
I also want to finish this doily I'm doing It's a star one but burgundy and beige for my living room. and of course the baby's blanket..I'm almost done with both..

I think that's it friends for the day...I will be back Tuesday late afternoon just to hang out for the nite pick up my things in the freezer then home to get ready for the BABY Shower...See you then...........have a great day!

One more blog

I thought I come back before I go home this afternoon and leave you with some photos of my crocheting that I have done. . . I taught my self to crochet with the fine thread...I learn how to with yarn through a friend of my Mom's but the real desire was to learn the fine art of fine thread...

These were of pink n whites I made for a special friend....She took this photo and sent it to me.

This is one I made up myself..just picked up the needle and started in...It turned out great...

And the two together I got the inspiration from my quit I had found at the Good will for 13.00...

 Working on another..this is I call it my star patten. My daughter had a pair that someone made for her so I copied it..I don't read patterns very well so I get alot of doilys from the Good will and Second Hand stores and I copy them...I made these for a friend from myspace, for here new baby girl's room. . . funny though I don't have a picture of the finished doily's hummmmm. wonder why not?

Here is another pair I was making for a friend who had gotten Cancer..I have lost contact with her though do to myspace going bonkers...I miss her and I think I'm going to find her address and drop her a card...Great Idea!
The finished two not such a bright picture though..I was on this kick of doing two and switching the colors...who knows where that came from..........??

Here is the very first one I ever was originally in white and red and old doily.

Here is one of the other Tea Cups that I was telling you about..I made her matching doily's for them..She loved it..I yet to make the Yellow One for her. . . I need to hunt down the Yellow thread.

And the Turquoise one...I have found a new blog site with an Incredible Lady who has inspired me to get back in the groove of things..I want to thank her for her great inspiration and for sharing it with all of us..she doesn't have a button or a follow button..hummm don't know why but her name is Creative Carmelina, I just fell in love with her blog...wishing you a warm Spring day...

Shinning Bright

The suns up and shinning all over...and I'm dragging waiting for my water to boil.

Going home this afternoon. I want to see my Garden lol....The good thing about the rain yesterday was that I didn't have to worry about watering the Garden, a good thang rite! But I will be back this Tuesday evening I have a appointment this way and I'm trying to get down stairs and start on this one spot to move the JUNK once again..these people are to much here...I woke up this morning thinking I must have cleaned Mom's house a billion and one times..and it's so full of junk I don't where to start...Well here's the story Mom's is a huge Pack Rat!!! huge. she can't let go of things. Before I use to clean it out and it was easier because she was at work. But now it's why you throwing that out and why this and's horrible..but anyways I'm trying to start down stairs the basement is full to the brim as well..I just had clean this same area out and she ran and filled it up with her bins..I was so angry then they kept shoving things till once again you can get in there.  Sorry Mom but they live like pigs here..I don't have the energy to clean after everyone anymore..I guess I'm venting this to get the frustration out some ways...I don't understand my Mother at all...But don't get me wrong she is very very good to me!!! I guess it's a sickness that some people have and I'm extremely opposite. Thank the Lord...I have to have clean clean clean..Lol even the Garden has to be clean..I'm not sure if that's good or bad?????? But that's me...I been working on my little storage place..If I had money even though it's not my place...Believe me I would fix it really nice.. I think it's because of her, though the house was decent when I was young...cept Laundry wasn't always done...maybe I just had it in me...thinking back I remember I had long socks to match my dresses for school and seemed like they were never I remember at 10 washing them..Though she was so clean with certain things like the bed linen and we had to clean the house...IDK..Well we all have issues...rite? ? ? I love my Mama just the same!!!

Here's some dishes I had bought at Saver's...I forgot that I had them up stairs..So when I was looking I found them and brought them home and washed them up ...I love the sweet design on them...they have a whisper of color soft and gentle...
Here's the pattern close up...see it's not bold just whisper soft...Now this is my down fall, Dishes I love them..I have a few, well more than a few..But the thing with me is I use my things...There's a double fold reason why I want to get to that Room down stairs...Mom has a set of Rose China that my Father sent to her from Japan. she used it once..I don't know why I never got them before..But I want to get them now and bring them home And make a dinner and use these dishes and have My Mama come to dinner with some other family members. Now that I'm thinking about it...I need to have my sister come to dinner..we aren't to far in distance but we just don't visit each other enough...So that's a plan..
Here's one of my favorite Tea Cups..I got this stand at a Tea shope....I love it...there are three other cups to match but my daughter bought them it was a turquoise one yellow and red..but I just wanted this one...
my favorite color...We bought these across the bay at a Hospice shop they always have some sweet things. In-fact I miss it being there..they have a great Good Will there to.
Here's is a amazing sunset...I happen to notice last finally there was a tiny piece of a rainbow but I couldn't capture it with my phone...I tell you I need a camera.

I can barely see the small this last picture...maybe if it was a bigger photo..My spelling has been terrible today..I have had to read over it twice..forgetting things in my old age...LOL....well my friends have a great day today...I'm just on Lazy this morning...hugs..........
