Today is my 52nd birthday:) Yipee I made it. Ive had a great day. It started out with my sweet boy Shawn giving me a coin purse along with the purse to match it. Its a Coach purse whatever that means. I dont know brands at all. But he was excited about it:) I love it. Id show you a pic but to my sadness my camera (which is new) has died out and Im going to go exchange it asap that mean tomorrow:) Shawn gave me a little cluch purse for Christmas and I loved it so he decided to give me the whole purse for my birthday!
Then I went off to church and had a great time. The church as a whole is going to be doing the Daniel Fast for the month of Janurary. I dont think I can do that with my diabetes so Im going to give up deserts and chocolate for the month. Pray that I stick to it!
Then after church I went to have lunch with my friend Karen and her mom Irene. They took me to the Red Lobster. And we all had the special with a small lobster and king snow crab and shrimp scampi oh yea a baked potatoe. I could not eat it all so I brought home the scampi and the baked potatoe for dinner later:) yummie
My mom was just here and she bought me some yarn with a new bag for yarn. I love it. who wouldnt love yarn anytime of the year! not me LOve LOve LOve it!heehee

I want to tell you how thankful I am to have such sweet friends as you all are. With my sister passing last week you have all sent your prayers. Thank you!
Well here is my tree this year. I didnt get very many ornaments up on it this year. My daughter Abbea came over and put it up for me. She is sweet that way! It still turned out cute , dont you think?
The cute little sachet is from eBay. Isnt it cute and it smells awesome. I have no idea what the smell is tho:) I bid a silly amount on this item and it came with a thimble and two small scissors. I think I got it all for less that 10 dollars thats including S&H. Its needlepoint and just so sweet. I think one of the things Im going to try and do next year is start (again)to shop at thrift stores. I miss the great deals I get on pretty things. Im trying to decorate my house again. When I moved in this house over 6 years ago I was in the middle of a dark point in my mind. I feel like God has lifted it and now I can see the pretty things again. I want to make my house a home again with pretty roses and angels and lots of crocheted lace:) Yipee here I go ashopping!
Ok have a very blessed CHRISTmas and remember why we celebrate in the first place!

I know that you all have been praying for my sister Jerri. She went to be with the Heavenly Father on Wednesday Dec. 12 at 1:30pm in her sleep. She went very quietly and peacefully. She will be greatly missed by her daughter Jenny and her family that she leaves behind. We thank you all for your prayers.
Remember to hug your loved ones this year in memory of Jerri.

Ive come to you today so you may see my sister Jerri and maybe you could say a prayer for her. She is now in the hospital and she is suffering. I would very much like you to pray that God will release the suffering and she could have peace. I know this is not the time to bother you all with this sad news but I know Jesus would love to hear from you at this time of the year not that He wouldnt love to hear from you any other time :) Please stop and say a small prayer for Jerri Esposito she is 50 this year and she has a very sweet little girl named Jenny. I love you all for your prayers and I pray that God will bless you and yours this time of the year and always. Im posting a pic of my sister that was taken a few weeks ago actually on Thanksgiving day this year.

1 Cor 13:
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails.

Here they are all four of my scarves. I was hoping to make another for good measure but oh well next year I hope to do better:) I picked up my mail today and receved my Piecework magazine. In the magazine is an article about crochet hooks and guess who they interviewed? Yep Dee over at CrochetWithDee. I just love it when I open up something and find a friend of mine along with the most interesting article. Yae Dee! I love your hooks. Some day Ill take a pic of all mine and put them up here for all to see.
Speaking of hooks I recieved my contest Greydog hook I was in from Rhonda over at Hooks N Grannies. I won the hook and was so happy to receive it. Here is the best pic I could take so you all could see what I won. Thanks Rhonda I just love it!

I cannot believe that I have not been here since the first. Wow You would not believe what Ive been up to:) Ive been really busy making scarves for CrochetWithDee for her 60 Scarves in 60 Days. You still have time to join in if you want too. Just go over to her site and leave her a comment, I know she would just love it if you join us all.
I got hired to make a afghan for my realtor so I started but didnt get far till she called and canceled her order:) Thats ok because I like the afghan so much I may keep it for myself:) heehee sly arnt I. Well my daughter called me the other night and now she wants me to make her a baby afghan for a friend of hers. So Im looking forward to doing that. I had to order the yarn off of Joanns site because they had the colors I wanted and they gave out free shipping:) SO Im just waiting for the yarn to arrive:)
Hubby, dear hubby, has put down his foot:) (heehee Im shaking) That I cannot buy anymore yarn till I get the yarn I have put up and not thrown in bags all over the house. You know I have a room just for my yarn and now If I can get my daughter Abbea over to help me organize it all again I will get it done. (Hear that Abbea?) I know your reading my blog!
Ok the little ditty that I have put up for my pic is a table decoration from last year when I was attending craft classes over at the center. I thought it was very fallish so I thought you might all like to see it again:) Enjoy!Happy crocheting ...

I just finished reading CrochetWithDee blog and she is having her scarf contest a little early this year. So go by her blog and read up on this great event. I plan on making as many as I can. Tho here in Vegas we really dont wear scarfs that often so I may try and find a place back East to send them to. I know they get so cold there during the winter months.
Ok go grab your yarn and whip up a scarf they are easy to make and alot of fun to design.

I had a rather rough day yesterday. I took my mother n law to the doctor and I waited in the waiting room for her and I was crocheting flowers for my daughters wedding in thread. I was using a new hook that I had just purchased off eBay. I believe it was a size 8 steel hook with some beautiful clay wrapped around the handle. Then one of her doctors came to me and wanted to see me. The doctor informed me that my mohter n law has breast cancer again. And that my mother n law had decided not to fight it. My mother n law Ann went through a very hellish nightmare around 6 years ago to battle that terrible cancer. She did agree to have a biopsy and a pet scan to see how far the cancer has grown. I if you could please say a prayer for her. She is 73 years young and very stubborn.
Well back to the crochet hook. I just poked it into my thread ball and laid it in my purse. I put the purse on the floor of the truck and then proceeded to get into the truck then I put my leg right over the hook and got stabbed! In the left calf right above my ankle. YEOW that hurts. I have never hurt myself before with my hooks. SO plase ladies be careful.
Ok now you know what Ive been upto these days
