Keeping busy.......

Hello all! Welcome! Welcome! It is a beautiful sunny day here in the heartland. The sky is cerulean blue, the air is crisp, and the breeze gentle and caressing. Who could ask for anything more? It does make one stop though and realize how fortunate one is. Here I live a clean, safe little portion of our world and it is sooo easy to lose track of how hard so many of us have it. It is, of course 9/11. Who can ever forget? Where were you? Do you remember the horror? The disbelief? The overwhelming sorrow? But, I also remember neighbors holding hands. friends hugging each other, strangers saying "God bless you and God bless America. I have shed my tears this morning(though there maybe a few more...), said my prayers for the families, and thanked my maker for shedding such grace in my life.

Here is something I have been looking for forever! My youngest DS is a huge Angry Bird fan and I've finally found the perfect pattern. You can find it here.

Here is my Blooming Flower Cushion reveal:

Now don't ask me what I'm going to do with it or if anyone would want it, but right now it sits in my family room and I get puzzled looks from visitors when they spy it and pick it up. I think they need to get used to large amounts of color too!

Finally I whipped up these two backpack buddies. The lil pink one was sold as soon as my hook stopped and I am carrying the brown one on my bag. You can see it in the back ground of the picture. Dosen't the brown Uglee well with Vera Bradley? LOL
Have a super Sunday and next I'll be sharing some posts about our latest RVing adventure!

A new Uglee.....

Hot! Hot! HOT! The high is supposed to be 100 degrees and who knows how high the heat index will go. This is summer's last big push and just in time for the last week of summer. So far our Labor Day weekend is going to be low key. Just relaxing and some family time.

I have kind of lost some of my crochet mojo this past month. With DD leaving for college and her afghan finished up, I've been at a loss at what projects to do or start.

I started this  lil' guy about a month ago and just finished him up last night. I used my Baby Uglee pattern and may call him Mugsy Uglee.

How many of you read the Attic 24 blog? I was perusing through it the other day and saw this pattern. It caught my fancy and I started working on this aimlessly in the evenings. Sometimes I like it, other times I don't. Hmmmmmm....the verdict is still out on this project.
Stay cool, dry, or safe wherever you are!
