Fun, fun, fun!
It was nice to work with these bright colors.
Making the squares went fast.
Crocheting them together and making the border took longer.
It was worth every minute.
Especially the three full days it took to do the border.
Totally worth it.
The seed stitch is so pretty, but it does take lots of time.

Poor little Ollie got into something he was allergic to.
We still don't know what.
His face swelled up like a chipmunk!
I always have Children's liquid Benadryl on hand for such emergencies.
It calmed it right down in a few hours.
His forehead swelled up again the next day, but not nearly as bad.
Another dose of Benadryl and he was fine.
How YOU doin, Ladies?
You smell like sunshine.
I nosed around in my freezer this morning and found a batch of spaghetti sauce I had frozen and forgot about. Yay! No cooking today! I set it out to thaw in some water. I'll heat it up in a couple of hours and cook up some angel hair spaghetti noodles for it.
Outside my window just now.
