A Little Bit of Spring







Crochet...





Do you know what those are?
It's the embryonic stage of a hexagon blanket!
160 middles.
I'll spend tonight sewing in all the ends.






Another hyacinth coming up in the yard.



We were both in dire need of new prescriptions for glasses, so we got exams yesterday. Now we just have to order our glasses and wait for them to come in. I only wear mine when I'm driving or grocery shopping or watching TV. I need them only for distance. The Cap wears his all the time. It'll be nice to be able to see clearly again. I remember those first few days with glasses for the first time ever when I was 41. I was absolutely amazed at all the things I wasn't seeing before. I especially noticed the individual leaves on the trees and the individual blades of grass! Wow. How did I not know I wasn't seeing these things?

We also got the taxes done. That's always a relief to have off our plates for another year.

I finished the book. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending. There was resolution to most everything except for the main character. I'm not sure what I expected. I mean, how much resolution can come to a 15-year-old girl with her whole life in front of her anyway?

I'm off to bed to watch some late-night TV and maybe sew in some ends to my little-bitty middles.

See ya.

  1. Hi Pammy Sue. I'm so excited to see your new blanket coming together!
    I loved your previous post. I don't know how I missed it. I was online a bit yesterday. Anyway, I feel that way about a lot of the books I have read. Including the one I am reading right now.
    Love ya to pieces.

    PS I texted you today with a pic of the project I am working on now. But no answer. You must have been in your book fog.

  2. Love your flowers in vases. I bet the hyacinth smells good. Wow, you've made a LOT of little middles! I bet it's going to be a gorgeous blanket! I just got new glasses too and I am so happy that I have unscratched ones again. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. Oh my Pammy Sue! Those are LOTS of ends to sew in. My least favorite part of a project. Pretty colors though and I'm sure the blanket will be gorgeous. My eyes are the opposite if yours. I see distances just fine but need readers for close up. And they are always in another room when I want them. I'm about ready to start wearing a "grandma" chain around my neck. After all, I am a Grandma! Have a great Sunday my friend. (I'm assuming I'm the only one up this late on a Saturday night.) Ha!
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  8. Are those hyacinths in the top picture? I saw some at Woollies the other day and almost bought one as I love their fragrance but as they were small-ish, I left them. I think I might just have to go back and get them tomorrow as I keep thinking about them and seeing them all over blog-land. You're a good girl getting your tax done! Mine should have been done July 2014 but still isn't. I hate doing the tax return and always end up getting a tax accountant to do it for me. You've been busy with all those middles. Way too many ends for my liking - I don't think I'll ever do a blanket like that. Have fun with it. xox

  9. Can't wait to see what you are making. Looks like fun colors. We don't have anything blooming here yet, but I enjoy seeing what is coming up in climates warmer that ours. Hope you have a great day. Heather

  10. I know how it feels to get new glasses. I've been wearing them since I was six years old! I just wish I could truly see what I look like when picking new frames! Have a great Sunday!

  11. Lovely flowers Pammy Sue, I can remember when I had all my middles or cog wheels as I called them for my violet meadow blanket I thought they were really cute in all their different colors. For me it was when I first got hearing aids and stepped outside and heard the birds singing, I could hear the rustle of my clothes and my footsteps amazing. :) xx

  12. I'm so excited to see your hexagons. I've never done crocheted hexagons but I'm thinking about making a new blanket for our bed and have been eying hexagon patterns for it...

    Happy Spring!

  20. I love the term, "embryonic stage" that fits the begining of the blanket perfectly. I am a compulsive yarn end sewer inner, I do it all right away cause I can't face them all at one time.
    Hugs,
