I went over and visited my momma and daddy yesterday and she had these two blankets draped over her couches.
This one was made by my Great Aunt, Jewel Squyres.
We called her Granny because she raised my Daddy.
This one was made by my grandmother, Levoi Barton.
Both of them are not with us anymore, but I'm really happy that we have some of their crochet goodies to admire. I'm happy to carry on the family crochet gene.
When I look at them and look closely at the stitches, I wonder what they were thinking about when they made all of these stitches. I know how my mind wanders and different things float through my mind while I crochet, some stay for a few rows of contemplation and others just stay around for a few stitches and another train of thought takes its place.
While I was in the waiting room at the doc's yesterday, I saw this recipe in a magazine and took a couple of snapshots of it. I've got to try it some day...
This was the best one I got for printing if you want. Left-lick on the picture first, and when the new size comes up, print it. You should get a full-size copy that way. If that doesn't work, copy and paste it into a Word document then click on it and pull in the corners to the size you want, and then print. If that doesn't work, just get out a crayola and some paper! Ha-ha/
I put this one up too, so you could see part of the cake and know what it looks like. It sounds so good to me! This recipe came out of an issue of Good Housekeeping magazine.
This is the view from my momma & daddy's back porch. I stepped out there yesterday to get a picture of the pretty climbing roses. It's was raining so the light wasn't great for picture-taking, but they still look pretty.
I haven't made any progress on anything crochet in the last few days except for that Oveja shawl. My new yarn should be delivered from JoAnn's on Saturday. I'm going to make a black one and a gray one if the yarn I bought for it works out. I didn't buy the Cottontots in any color other than off-white because they didn't have any good colors in stock. Bastards. Don't have a damn sale and then not have any colors to choose from, people!
~Have a good weekend~
Enjoy your Mother's Day all you mothers out there!
