1 single, skip 3, 5 doubles, repeat....

Good Thursday morning!  It is a cold, grey morning in SW Virginia today and blowing snow.  Looks like March will be coming in like a Lion around here!

It seems like it is baby season at work.  We have two young ladies who are expecting their first baby and our receptionist is going to be a first time grandmother.  They say it comes in threes!

So that was the kick in the rear that I needed to get my crafting mojo back on.  What is the perfect craft to work on when it's cold and yucky out?  Crocheting baby afghans!!!  I started the first one last week and it is well over half way finished.
Don't you just love baby colors???

I went with the shell stitch because I love how lacy it looks and it's a pretty easy stitch as well.

I went to Joann's this week and bought all the stuff I needed to get started on my Spoolie Swap and with cold weather predicted this weekend, that's what I will be working on! 

Have a great Thursday!

Rest in Peace Uncle Richard

Good Morning ladies.  It is with a heavy heart that I write about my Uncle's passing.  My Uncle Richard was my mother's favorite brother.  They were closest in age and when they were grown and with families of their own, only lived 2 miles from each other.

Our family will definitely miss him.  Love you Uncle Richard!

Happy Valentines Day!

Zero crafting going on in my world right now!  Just can't seem to find the mojo to get started.  I think it's because it is winter.  When I get home from work I just want to fix supper, wash dishes and go to bed!  Well, I really could do without the washing dishes part.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
