My New Life

This is the guilt i made for the boys.

This new life without my husband is not easy and I miss him dearly, it seems everything I do reminds me of him. I find myself doing something and then will just burst into tears, they say this will get better. I could never get through this without my family, my daughter and grandbabies are my rock. I will never forget those beautiful thirty three years we had together , they past so quick. Make sure you tell the ones you love how much they mean to you every day and don't take them for granted.

So now it is time for me to get on with my life.

Lazy Summer

Colt, DH and Gracie


I have been very lazy so far this summer, we have been doing a lot of this, just hanging around. Our kids were here last week for a two week visit and we only got one great day to visit as we all ended up getting sick and baby Colt ended up in the hospital, now we are all on amends and the kids are back home doing well. Gramcracker is hoping to visit them in September and make of for the time lost.

No crafting going on here, trying to think of a project to get started on. I have been a very bad blogger lately, but i still lurk around and look at all the great blogs and still enjoy visiting you all very much.

Take care and hope to have a new project to post soon.

New Project

I am working on a new blanket trying to use up all of my left over scrap yarn and boy this is going to be colorful, but i am lovin it so far. I have made this pattern once before and i just love the size of the blanket i got the pattern from the book BLUE-RIBBON AFGHANS.
Gracie girl has settled in to our home and we are so in love with her, she is such a joy to have around, she is like velcro and sticks to us and we love it. I have been having so much fun playing with her i have been negleting my blog. the weather is so nice here in central Florida so i have been spending a lot of time with her playing ball outside. I have been lurking around at all of your blogs, and just love them all, but have been bad bad blogger and not commenting.

We are getting ready for a new room mate soon, my brother from Indiana has been having a lot of personal problems and we have ask him to move in with us, he can help us out with things around the house that my DH can not longer do and we hope to help him get back on his feet and on to a new sober live!

2011 Started with a bang

2011 started out with a real bang, literally. On Jan. 1, 2011 i was walking Gracie out in the back yard, she got all excited when she saw the ducks and took off pulling me down, I fell on my right shoulder and had to make a trip to the ER, after xrays they told me it was broken, gave me a pain pill, a sling and a referral to a surgeon. I had to cancel my trip to Virginia Beach to visit my kids. I went to the surgeon on Tuesday and the good news was I did not have to have surgery, it will heal on its own in about 6-12 weeks, gave me pain pills and I spent my vacation with my Hubby taking great care of me. Of course I was very upset about all of this, but I am not mad at Gracie as she was just following her instincts. I will just reschedule my trip for later and Turtle was so understanding, he gave me a kiss over SKYPE to make it better.

I am ready to go back to work tomorrow and get things back to normal and no more accidents please...I have had my share for a while.

It was such a wonderful Christmas, I got everything I wanted, and that was to have my husband with me this year! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and we are looking forward to a Happy New year!

Meet Gracie

We adopted Gracie yesterday, she is a 16 month old Weimeraner, she is the sweetest little girl. I think she is going to be so good for my husband, he will now have a companion during the day while i am at work, and she has already helped with getting the damn Cancer off our minds. She will keep him busy during the day and she is very low keyed, so on the days he doesn't feel good she will just lounge with him. She is already house trained, which was one of my wishes, she walks on a leash really good, she is very
timid and acts like someone mistreated her at one time, i don't know how any one could do such a thing to any animal! She has already started giving us kisses! Now we just have to get our cats out of the closets and learn to get along with her, she could careless about them, but they don't like her, time i suppose. You will not believe this but her name in the foster home was Lacie and our daughters name is Lacy, so i think she was just meant to be for us.

We love her already!

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas

I finally got all of my decorating done today. Went to Lowe's yesterday and got a real tree, this is the first real tree we have had in years, It is small, but I love it. It has a beautiful smell and makes our whole house smell wonderful. I also put up my artificial tree, i figured the more the merrier.

I love this picture of my husband and I, it was taken in 2005 when we went to Ireland, oooo how i loved that trip, Ireland is sooooo beautiful!

This picture reminds me that an Angel in heaven is walking around with Mr. Bleu in her arms watching over us.

I love the way the lights shimmer over the manger in this picture i took today. I broke Joseph a while ago and i am still looking for one to replace him, but i haven't found one that will blend in with the other figurines

We have another beautiful little angel in heaven, his name is Corgan Lowell Hamilton, he was born in 2004 and went to heaven 3 days later, this is his Christmas ornament, we miss you little one!

HoHoHo, i hope you all had a great weekend, i know I did, have a great week!

This is a window topper i made out of some scrap material i found in the bargain bin.
my quilt is almost done, i just have to finish putting the binding on, i plan to hand sew it on the back, so who knows when that will get done, i am not much on sewing by hand.

i am very happy with the way it has turned out, of course it is not perfect, but not too bad for the first one. i used the pattern "life is like a box of chocolates" sweet Jane pattern. i love this pattern easy for me as a beginner.
I have been busy lately, got the walls in the bathroom painted, now this weekend i will start on the bedroom, then after that i plan to paint my cabinets in the bathroom black and frame my large ugly mirror, i can't wait to see how it turns out and of course i will share. If i ruin the cabinets darn i guess we will have to get new ones, right?
I just booked another flight to go see my kids in Virginia for early January, Southwest has a great special going on so i got a great deal, so excited to see my babies again!

Posted by Picasa I now have all of my blocks made and now i have to piece them together, trying to figure out which pieces to put where, i am so happy with the way this is turning out, even though it is a little busy. I am starting out small, now to finish the top and then quilt that will be interesting indeed. O and i did start on the bathroom but that is as I have gotten, just a start.
Have a wonderful day!

Mini Vacation

I am so excited, i am going to see Turtle and Colt next Friday. I whipped up these jammies and bib to take along, and hope to get a few more things whipped up before I leave. Turtles loves these type of jammies, he is so picky, heheheh, i miss them so much just cant wait to hug and kiss them all!

I also whipped up this pillow case, turtle loves orange!

This is the finished basket i put together for the baby shower last week, the new mommy loved it all.

The shower was very nice, momma got a lot of much needed things and Tanner Logan will be making his entrance in about 3 weeks now.

I'm going to a baby shower Sunday, a friend's daughter is expecting her first little boy so i made this little cowpoke blanket and bib, still gotta finish burp cloth and binky holder, i am just hoping she likes it, i think it turned out great. My grandson Colt has a couple of these blankets that i made for him and my daughter loves them.

(love the little purple dress)

I got this sweet package in the mail today from, and I love it, the goodies all have a home in my kitchen now. The dish clothes and pot holder has now put me in the mood to decorate for fall, I just haven't been in the mood because it is so stinkin hot here!

I have been busy lately getting back to sewing and crocheting, i
i have been make booties, i got the pattern from the June, 2010 CROCHET WORLD issue, it is so easy to follow and i have been playing with different yarn.

Then i decided to get back to the sewing, made a couple burp cloths, a receiving blanket and a large quilted blanket. I used the tuturial from it is a awsome site. I was suprised that my elbow allowed me to get this done! woot woot

Last night i decided to make some yeast donuts, found this recipe on Pioneer woman's web site, Yummy! but boy look at all of those donuts for 2 people, my DH took a few to the neighbors, he is so sweet!
Have a great Sunday!
