Taking It Easy

I haven't been crocheting much in the last few weeks.  After doing the poncho my elbow and shoulder have been bothering me.  I hate the my hobby is impeded by my achy body. I've only made a rows progress on my #Sophiesuniverse project. I had a request from a co-worker to make them a bolero.  I started it last night.  I'll have to take it easy.

I did make up some quick Ninja masks for my friends boys.  I hope they like them.  

I've been marathon re-watching Sex and the City and noticed Carrier wore crochet.  Woohoo.  

We had our yearly fireworks event here last week.  It's supposed to be for Canada and the US 4th of July but they have them so early.  Due to the weather they had to start them a bit early in day light.  But this shot it wasn't too bad.  I'll never stop loving fireworks.

I think I finish my poncho for my friend in record time.  Mind you it's not a full length poncho but it'll server it's purpose of keeping warm at work when the air conditioning is on.  She loves it.

And my honey finally hung my shadow box and a picture that was given to me after 
my Marma's passing.  

And the saying....

Now what to work on.  An WIP or start a new project. 
Crochet ADD.

Happy weekend all!

Time Heals

I started yet another project this week. A co-worker got me some new yarn, the taupe colour, and of course the wheels in the head start to go on what to use it for and with.  I had the light beige and green so I thought they would all go together nicely.  I browse my favourited crochet videos on You Tube and start this Waves Ponch by BobWilson123.

It's coming on 3 weeks since I've lost my Baby cat Marma.  I had this shadow box that I had a bit of crochet in it but knew now that it had a new purpose.  I was waiting for the scrap paper for the background.  Same as I used in another passed pet. I found the wooden letters at Michael's for his name, his favourite mouse in there and a lock of his fur. I added the crochet flower as he loved my crochet, cuddling in it. It still hurts and miss his presence everyday.  Even the other two cats have noticed something missing.

And two up close pics.

I came upstairs one day and these two were sleeping together. I have never seen these two do that. Keegan on the left had been with Marma the longest.  He's 13 years old and Tigger is 6.

I found this old puzzle of mine while cleaning out old stuff. I thought I'd give it a whirl to occupy some time and keep the brain active.  It took me 3 days.  

Happy weekend all!!
