Summer Sinusesssssssssss

It stinks to have the summer blahs!  With all the traveling and different environments, I think my head decided to give in to a sinus infection.  So I have kept it easy all day.  I did finish towel holders that I started 2-3 years ago. I had enough left over to make a washcloth using Shari's pattern from  I am not sure I will be able to do dishes with it since it is so cute! 

I also have to share this photo of Lexie and her blanket that I made in May.  It is so nice to see her relaxing on it!!

Have a nice weekend and here's to feeling better!

summer vacations and croceht gifts!

I have been busy traveling over the last 2 and half weeks.  I have been to Jasper Indiana to pay respects to my God Daughter whose son died at the age of 3 unepectedly.  What a tragedy and something that makes you wonder why.  Please keep the family of Kai in your prayers.

I got home from there and left the next afternoon to visit my son in Sunnyvale Ca!  What a wonderful trip!  He had a plans for us to see several sights - a beautfiul beach at Half Moon Bay and the Muir Woods!  WOW!  Sharing a couple of photos:

Yes that is an Apple- he is so blessed to be able to work there this summer!

Half Moon Bay

Muir Woods!  Adam is 6'5".  I hope that helps with perspecive!

Next I came home for one day and drove to Saule Ste. Marie Canada to meet with friends that I have blogged with for 9 years.  Of course I crocheted them something: 

a Wine bottle Cozy with a bottle of nice wine!  The colors were pretty but did not show well!

A water bottle cozy to carry your water! 

I made another the same colors as the wine cozy for our host! 

I loved the wine cozy so much- I made myself two! 

I actually took pictures as I crocheted them on the road home.  I will be posting them soon and writing the pattern I made up- my first ever!

Have a great day- Enjoy the sunshine and find your thankfuls today!
