2 Afghan Crochet Patterns

2  Afghan Patterns I am Working on.
The first one is for a Sweet friend
who is getting married.
I am only 1/2 way done but it is turning out great.
It is stitched with chunky yarn, 
and even though it has holes, 
will be extremely warm.
You will find the pattern on the 
Lion Brand Yarn webpage.
Thick and Quick Lacy Stripes Throw

The Second Afghan is for me.
This is the Corner to Corner Crochet Pattern.
It is a lovely stitch and extremely easy.
I am using Red heart Super saver.
Using up some of my yarn stash.
You will find the pattern on the 
Red Heart Yarn Webpage.

My Precious Momma

2 Timothy 4:7-8

I have fought a good fight, I have finished the course, 
I have kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for me a
 crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge,
 shall give to me on that Day, and not to me only but 
also to all who have love His appearing.

My precious Momma

She loved the unlovely,
 the unlovable, the hard to love,
 as well as, the lovely.

She fought a good fight with 
Breast Cancer,
And although it took her life,
She lives on.

Love the Lord.

The Life of Dog Models - Maximo and Rosie Bell

I received an email this morning,
that stated, and  I quote, 

""I can always spot a Chinese company. 
I can tell because your dog models 
are overworked and tired. You stink!"

As you can imagine this made me mad 
and hurt my feelings 
as my dogs are very happy, 
very spoiled and living in the
 beautiful state of Colorado.

Here are just a "few" Photos to Show 
you exactly how my
Dog Models,
 Maximo and Rosie Bell Live.
This is where we sleep.

This is where we relax each morning

This is also where we relax, some nice mornings.

This is how we spend a sunny afternoon.

Sometimes we have to take a bath.

Sometimes we go on vacations.

Sometimes we "play" in mommy's yarn.

Sometimes we get new sweaters.

We love our mommy.

And love to give her kisses.

We especially love to go off roading
 in the beautiful mountains in Colorado!!

Maximo and Rosie Bell 
are our furbabies, 
and we love them  and spoil them.

Just to set the record straight.
