tada my newest girlfriend!

Meet the newest member of our family her name is Bella. She is a dauchsund/corgi mix she is around we think 9 or 10 months old. We happened apon her at the local animal shelter and she was one day away from being put down. She is fantastic! She loves her new home and she gets along with my other babies. Max was a little leery at first but now he loves her too. Fifi just goes on keepin on:)
We went out for a ride and happened apon Petsmart and they had their dogs out for adoption from the pound and we looked but did not find what we were looking for. So we took the ride over to the local animal shelter and we found a really pretty girl boxer/pitbull mix and we went back everyday till Wednesday and then she was gone to a new home. Then we found our little Bella and we just loved her on site. I was wanting a corgi like Alicia has on her site Posie Gets Cozy. But I could not pass up this little Bella girl no matter what once they told me they were going to put her down the next day. I cant believe how God has blessed me with her. Shes a perfect fit in our family.
I have much to tell you all that has happened to me this past week and I will post more tomorrow stay tuned...

Heres my sweet little no more granddaughter on her 12th birthday. I bought her her first American Girl doll its the Samantha doll.She has always wanted this doll. I promised her that when she was old enough that I would get it for her. She sleeps every night with her so far.
She had a wonderful party it was at a local pizza hangout. There was lots of friends and family to help celebrate.
Im still working on the shawls and lapghans and Im in fear that I wont get them all done in time for the holidays. There not due till December but I can only get one lapghan and one shawl done per week I need to get faster or something. My daughter Abbea is making the walker totes and she is a beginning croheter. My friend Karen says she will try and learn to crochet so she can help. I do pray we can get them all done I need 75 items.
Ok go crochet my Friends and please say a little prayer for Donna she is ending her time here on earth with us and she needs prayers.

I forgot to let you all on a fantastic little jewel of a yarn, And that would be Dees 60 scarves in 60 days Challenge. Come one come all to the party! Im going to try and get a least 3 scarves done with all that Im doing maybe more. Last year I think I made 6. This year I have a program to give them to. And that would be the Homeless Chapter at our little church. They gather warm clothing in the months of September and October and into November for the homeless in Vegas. So here I am again along with Dee crocheting scarves.

  Dee asked me a question about the Chemo Caps Ive been making with her pattern, you can find the free pattern on her site over at CrochetWithDee , Dee you mentioned a while back that used Marlene from Mondial for your hats so thats what I use. I get the now discountinued yarn off of Ebay. I bought about 100.00 worth last year for my sisters caps and she loved them I think Ill post a pick of her favorite, she wore all the time.

I just bought some more of the yarn from a Ebayer she says she has alot left if your interested. My sister liked her hat because I didnt make it too long and it was so soft.

Ok thats enough from me have a happy crochet day!

This is the first shawl Ive made I hope its long enough.Here is the second one I love coming up with the trim on these
Here is a pile of granny squares for the lapghans
Here is a little peek of the lapghan I made with the granny squares

I cant believe Ive been away for so long. Ive been working on the lapghans and shawls for the home. I have been able to figure out I can make one shawl in 2 days and 1 lapghan in 3 to 4 days. Now I need to get busy because I need many more. I love using varigated yarn for the shawls they only use 2 skeins to make 1 shawl. Im adding a couple pics of the shawls and Im adding a few others of my lapghans out of granny squares. Oh yea Im using Red Heart Super Saver yarn for thses items. Im having the best time coming up with trim ideas.
I made a couple caps for Cora I hope she likes them. I used pattern for Chemo Caps. I love that pattern itis so easy and looks great. You can find the pattern on her site for free. I forgot to take a pic maybe Cora will send me a pic with her wearing one of them. hint hint!
Ok Im in the process of watching a marathon of NCIS. It helps with crocheting I love that show! I can wait for the new season to start.
Ok Im dont chatting with you all. Have a great day! tata
