THIS GRANNY’S GRANNY….

THIS GRANNY’S GRANNY….

I remember so many days, spending time with Beatrice,,, My Grandma… She always had a crochet project she was working on!  My most fond memories where of her tablecloths and doilies, just sitting with her in her livingroom watching a little TV and seeing her working with her hands at the speed of light making her creations…

.

I’m not sure I am quite as fast as she was at finishing my projects… But life is different in my day…In the 60″s  life was a little slower and I think there was more time to do the things they loved and still accomplish all the other daily tasks with not as much stress.  I have been working a couple of hours a day on my own crochet projects and it is truly my stress relief!  I love it…  My Sunburst Granny Square Blanket is coming a long quite nicely… It’s about 1/3 complete in just a week and I am starting to see the vision coming together!  Even with the other projects and activities I have been working on, I feel pretty good about my progress.  One of my favorite things this week has been my time with my granddaughter Ryan Renee!  I occasionally get her early in the morning and take her to school,,, It is way more fun this time around, when my children were school age it seemed to be so much more work…  She loves to watch me crochet and pretend with a ball of yarn and a hook that she is making something beautiful too!

Charlie!!

This is Charlie,,, My 3-year-old Boxer….  If you know anything about Boxers, you know they are stuck in puppy stage for life… Overly energetic, a bit hyper, statisticians, athletic and of course they think they are somewhere in the top of the hierarchy in the family!  Of course Charlie is all that and more!!!

Charlie, A Girl’s Best Friend!  He hangs out with me every chance he gets.   Sometimes a little to close!!… If I stop to do anything he is laying or sitting at my feet… I would trip and land very awkwardly… But by now,,, I always know he is there and just know how to move so I don’t go flying across the room…

I say he is my best friend… But I think he has a lot of “best friends” in our house!  This is “his” cat-his other best friend..She loves him right back…

This morning he was so excited over the new snow and the prospect of digging around in it to find his bones…  He loves the snow!  He would spend all day running through the yard plowing through it with his floppy dog face…

.

Well, That’s my Charlie for now…  So here is to a girl having a faithful best friend!

LAST NIGHT… I whipped up three sets of Sunburst Coasters to deliver to a little shop on main street…Alpine Originals has been one of those blessings in our little town for artists and crafter’s.  I have been privileged to sell a surprising amount of my crochet work over the last 2 years!
