Crochet to Share

These are some items I have been working on lately. A friend of mine let me borrow her doily and I worked up the doily from hers. I was so excited to make it, I forgot to write down the directions when I was working on it! It turned out so pretty!

I made the sweater sets in the past two days. Keeps my mind busy at night. Seems to be the hardest time lately. And the weekends.

I have been looking for a baby earflap hat and can't find any! So I just made up my own! I'll post the pattern once I get it typed up. It was fun to make too!

The blue sweater set and earflap hat is going to my son's friends who had a baby just a couple weeks ago!

In Memory of My Uncle Raymond

I was driving to MD to pick up the last of my things and I got a phone call. My Uncle Raymond passed away. He has been battling brain cancer for some time now. My Aunt Norma and Uncle Raymond live in Pueblo West, Co. Not far from my Dad. I wish I was there to help my family. My Aunt told me the above picture will be there with them all since I can't be there in person.

The above picture was taken several years ago when Chuck and I drove to Colorado to spend time with my Dad. We stopped on the way at a Cracker Barrel for breakfast one day. We had to get the "sleeping puppy". We played a joke on the family and everyone had a great laugh about it! Even my Aunt and Uncle's dogs had to see if it was real or not! It was so funny! So wonderful to see my family laugh. It had been MANY years since I was last out there to see them.

When I was little, my cousins and I used to roll tires down a hill...that is all I will say! :) Anyway, we got busted by my Aunt and Uncle. On my last visit, my Aunt Norma asked me if I wanted to roll some tires? After all those years, I was surprised she remembered! We got another good laugh!

I will miss my Uncle Raymond. I was happy that I was able to crochet him the lapghan to use while he was sick. (See Feb. 2009 for picture) I love you Uncle Raymond. Stay strong Aunt Norma, I love you and miss you alot!
