Finally persevered and working all day I have the coaster almost completed. I need to add accent to it and it will be complete.
Lisa did the one on the right and mine is on the left.

It's slow going but we're getting there. Almost have a complete kitchen set up.
Now have washer and dryer. I've washed sheets and put out on clothesline. They smell so good. However our little area has become infested with skunks. Our Great Pyrenees got sprayed and oh my goodness the horrendous smell. She wasn't too happy either for the spraying or the cleaning.
I'm still without proper glasses as they had to reorder mine. Having to use old ones to try and see. On top of that my legs have been giving me a lot of trouble. Using walker constantly.
Been working on some straight crocheting for dish clothes. Can't see pattern to read it. But I still play around.
Decided to keep a little kitten. 3 weeks old and I'm bottle feeding it sift food and kitten milk. She's a cutie and Pookie my big cat says stay away from me but my dogs don't seem to mind. This one I'm calling Bryndle.

I've still not set up a sewing nook (no craft room). Still have plenty of boxes to unpack, so not much time for crafting. Though thanks to Ravelry, I have a little project I work on in my me time. They're lace spiral coasters, which I'm hand stitching felt to the back of to keep my tables dry.
I've also adopted a two week old kitten. He is the cutest. Noisy when hungry, loves to explore, and thinks my kids are it's litter mates. Though my son's cat Loki doesn't know what to make of this new intruder.

I went to the eye doctor and my eyes have gotten worse. I had to order new glasses and am still waiting for them to come in. Realized I'm blind as a bat but first thing in the morning when I wake up my eyesight is ok for maybe the first 15 minutes and then all goes blurry and it gets hard to see.
I can't see we;; enough to sew, crochet or paint so I'm unpacking and getting rid of a lot of things. Gonna have a garage sale when I'm done.
Until my glasses come in I won't be doing anything crafty. But like Lisa I'm going to start doing things for my kitchen. I'll post them once I can see. Til then take care.

Today, we closed on the house. Signed off on all our paperwork and hoping to receive the keys tomorrow. Kids are excited and impatient for this move. Still a lot of work ahead of us.
Been busy crocheting small things for the kitchen. Mainly dish scrubbies, trying out that Red Heart scrub it yarn. Also have been g stitchingup some pretty hot pads.
P.S. Tablet or website keeps messing with my spelling and spacing. I honestly type better than this.

I went to ravelry.com and started a new account because I couldn't remember my old one and then I started to save things that looked interesting to me.
I made a to do list and I think I'll try some Scrubby dots. I'm posting a picture to show you what I mean.
Wish me luck. Now to look for my hooks and yarn. Husband is gonna kill me. lol

In the Sunday School class I share we're starting our new quarter in September and the theme is owls. O.W.L. Our Wise Lord. Went to ravelry for some ideas on patterns and got busy making 3 batches to hang around the classroom.
Spent a day using up some scraps and tried my hand at crumb quilting and string quilting. Also sewed up another granny block.
Just some of the things I've been doing to help me relax.

My family and I are waiting word on if we'll be moving this month. Not wanting to start the next set only to have to pack it up mid sewing.
Finished embroidering a house warming gift for friends who had just moved into their new home. So pretty, decided to work on one for myself in hopes of our move.
Also, finished making those hexies into diamonds. Now to put it all together, but that will have to wait till after the move.
So, I'm in the process of keeping projects simple and quick and minimize tools.

Yes I've not posted since my planned fishing trip. I had a lot of fun and all I can say is I got back home and just looked at the Tumbleweed square and said a resounding "NO".
Then I got sick and have been recovering from it. Just as I got over illness I passed a stone. Hurt like crazy but I'm still alive. Thank you Jesus.
Had an awesome Tuesday with my hubby and then on Friday helped to celebrate son in laws birthday.
Now I look over at my design board and just "sigh"....maybe later...Just not now.
My youngest son is shipping out and I'm going to go say goodbye for awhile until I see him again.
Lisa stop haranguing me...lol

Finished covering all my hexagon papers and now on to stitching up those diamonds.
Also, a friend of ours got a new home, so I've been embroidering a house warming gift, which I'll quilt into a small wall hanging.
Which led to me digging through my scraps. What a mess I have, so decided Pinterest would inspire me with a way to organize my mess. They're are plenty of pins on this and I was inspired. So, I'm ironing, cutting, and placing in specific containers to help find what I need when I need it. Yay!

Been working on finishing projects as I wait for mom to work on her block. Also trying hard not to start anything new, however Pinterest gets me into too much trouble. I can't help but try a new quilt block or cross stitch pattern. Slowly putting away crochet unless a yarn just happens to catch my eye.
