Pretty Crochet & Lucy

When I see things like these next few things, I feel like an underachiever...

Amazing or what?
That's A LOT of circles!

I love this!

These are too cute.

Just WOW...

So pretty and so much work!

I wanted to show y'all my cousin's new Boston Terrier, Lucy. Isn't she a doll?? I like her unusual color pattern. She was a rescue who had been in a crate for three years (all her life) producing puppies at a puppy mill. Now she has a GREAT home and can see what life is really all about for a spoiled dog.


  1. Oh, my goodness, Pammy Sue! These are beautiful but you are NOT an underachiever! I LOVE your gorgeous blue squares blanket!!! Amazing! Congratulations on such a big and beautiful project! blessings ~ tanna

  2. Oh I am in love with that first blanket. Gosh, the colors are amazing!

    Awww love little Lucy. So thankful she now has a good and loving home . How someone could ever hurt or mistreat an animal is beyond my ability to even understand. Bless your cousin for adopting her.

    Wishing you a most lovely day sweet friend. :)

  3. I love looking at others beautiful creations since I have back sliden over the years. I love the patchwork.

    Your cousin dog is sweet looking. I love the coloring also.

  4. I LOVE the shawl (?) hanging over the bed too. I'm with ya, I see these and think I'm not going fast enough.

    People (and I use that term loosely) who run puppy mills, should be made to live in a crate forever, as their punishment. For dog-fighters, we should turn the dogs loose on them, see how they like it. what a cutie! glad she has a good home now. Our doxie's are our kids, most spoiled dogs in a 100 mile radius. never sat on anything but cushions their whole lives. thanks for sharing!!

  5. Very pretty blankets.. but you are certainly no slacker! What a sweet dog! I cannot stand puppy mills! I've actually been to two of them and the conditions are horrific. One place all the dogs in her barn were "de-barked" and they were begging for attention and sounded pathetic. I'm happy your cousin rescued her, I hope she can forget her awful 3 years. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  6. Beautiful work, there is so much talent out there but you are in no way an underachiever Pammy Sue! your work is just as lovely. I have just seen your blue blanket it's beautiful! Lucy is so cute I'm glad that she has a new loving home. :) x

  7. Thanks for the inspiration Pammy Sue. That Kissing Circles afghan is amazing. I've never seen that pattern before. That is so sad about the puppy, I always wondered what a puppy mill was. I'm glad she now has a loving home. Take care, Heather

  8. Awww bless her!!! I am so glad Lucy has a better life now !

    I so know what you mean when I travel the web and see all those wonderful ,fabulous makes and patterns there are times I think why do I bother. Still Pammy Sue you don't do too bad ...do you? You know you show us some really lovely work that you do. In all I don't think you need to worry about being an underachiever!!!
    keep well

  9. After seeing that beautiful blue blanket in your previous post, someone out there is thinking they are an underachiever. Really it is just gorgeous!
    Lucy is adorable! So glad she found a new home :)

  10. oh! dear ....I was distracted by a phone call and finished off my last sentence in my comments to you rather rapidly too quickly actually.
    It was meant to read like this

    "In all I don't think you need to worry about being an underachiever because you are not!"

    sorry about that )-:

    We need to think bigger I guess:) Pinterest gives one too many choices and then I get confused and frustrated, just going around in circles but loving it too!

  12. Poor Lucy having been through such a horrible three years. Puppy farmers should be severely punished. I'm so glad she's been rescued by your cousin and I hope she enjoys the rest of her life with her new loving family. I love that second blanket - think its the very strong colours. Granny squares are still one of my favourites. xox

  13. So much of the animal abuse is out there and thank God for the folks who are able to put an end to it. Lucy will love being the center of attention now. I am so glad she was rescued by people who will love her. So sad she has spent so much time confined. Just sad. Love the photos of the blankets but your photo is just as worthy of recognition. All of who do that sort of work know the time and effort that goes into it. So many of those works end up in a box or drawer. It takes real dedication to keep with the program and to finish it.
    (((HUGS))) Susanne :)

  14. Lately I've come across lots of these crotchet thingies and I remember there was a nice, crochet thingies lady that I used to read and comment on the blog. Guess I just came back as a result. :)

  15. Wow, fantastic! And perfect on a rainy morning like today ;-). Lucy is such a sweetie ♥, good that she can enjoy life now in a loving home :-). Have a great day!

  16. Those projects are just wonderful. I can't decide which I like best. But you, my dear, are no slacker. I like your blue blanket so much I bought the yarn today at Hobby Lobby. As soon as I finish Miss Pipers sweater guess what I'll be doing? Making YOUR blanket that's what. You inspire me sweet lady. :-)
    And I'm ecstatic that Lucy has a new forever home with people who love her. My Chloe is a rescue dog too and we love her to pieces. She sleeps wherever she wants, including on our bed with us. I figure she deserves it after all she's been through. Hugs to your cousin for adopting Lucy.

  17. So glad that pup now has a lovely home.

    Thanks for these inspirational photos - really lovely.

    BTW I am going to have a go at your flower pot holder pattern this week, hope I don't mess it up!

    Funny -- you make ME feel like a slacker!! I have no idea how you do all you do. And your work is every bit as gorgeous as these examples!!

    The first dog my parents got (that I remember) was a Boston Terrier, so I have a special place in my heart for them. I'm sure Lucy knows how lucky she is!

  19. Ugh...I'll never achieve anything!!! But it sometimes nice to see how incredibly talented other people are!

  20. Lucy is a doll, and after viewing this post I am a big underachiever.

  21. I love Lucy! She's beautiful! And I hate to hear stories like that. Makes me want to beat the crap out of the person who did it and stick them in a damn cage for 3 years!
