Something old new again

Now that my life is slowing down again some, I am finding time to get back to some things I loved to do. Crocheting & cross stitching which I haven't done in almost 8 or 9 years. For a few years I was helping my mom out and then we found out she had cancer. And I was trying to take care of her, work and set up a new house we had just moved into. Life was just nuts then and I didn't have time for the little things. And when my mom pasted Feb. 2008 I just couldn't think of me I wanted to be there for my sister.  We all still miss mom very much, but I know she and my 2 children are watching over our family as angels.
A little over a week ago I wanted to start crocheting again, so I got a a little bit of yard and then I took me a couple hours working with the yarn to get started, it had been too long but once I remembered the stitch my grandma taught me I was on a roll and ran out of yarn in a couple days and had to get more. And these are what I have started so far. They have a ways to go before they are big enough to cover up in. But it is a good start.  I ran out of yarn again. lol       

 These are being done in Peaches & Creams yarns. The top 1 is in Blue Denim &  Faded blue denim  and the next is in Good earth.  I fell in love with the colors.

And then today while cleaning out a closet, I hit the jack pot. I found all my cross stitching supplies I forgot all about and I had 2 full boxes.  I am a very happy person right now. I ran out of yarn for now. But still have a craft I can do and still love doing.Just takes me a little longer to do now that my eyes are not so good.  Also found some of the ones I have done and thought I would share a few here today. And then over time I will share the others with you. The first ones I am sharing are the first ones I think I ever done. Hope you enjoy them.
The 2 boxes of goodies I found and I can get started with again.
Made this one playing around, it was 1 of a set I made for my mom.

                                                                                                                                         I think I found about a dozen or so of ones I still had. I love finding hidden treasures I forgot I had.  It made my day.  I hope you find a great hidden treasure today too.  I think this has been the start of a great week for me, last week wasn't so hot.  Blessing to you all and love.                                               


  1. Looks like you hit the jackpot! And I agree - it's a good sign that things are going to get better for you this week :) I like the cross stitches you did - the one of the woman hanging quilts is really cute, but I can see you put a LOT of work in that dragon! I really love the crochet pattern you're using. Those are going to be awesome throws. You picked such pretty colors.

  2. Penny, Thank you and if you hear me when I found the stuff you though I won the lottery I was so happy. The 1 of the lady is the very first one I ever done and it took me months to do it.

  3. Awesome! I love crocheting but I have never been able to get into cross stitch, as far as doing it. I love the ones you did. A girl that worked for me years ago, cross stitched a frog in a tub for me, I just love it! I have it hanging over our tub.
