Welcome Midsummer

Well its Midsummer and Sunday is the longest daylight of the year for us.
That is also Fathers day here in the US.
Plan to spend the day with my dad, we have been keeping our safe distances. I wish everyone would. Here in Oklahoma they are having a rise in Covid-19 cases, especially in Tulsa. I've been keeping at home only going out to go grocery shopping.
Have to admit it was tough at first adjusting to all this and can say I've finally have.

I've been doing mostly Knitting and crocheting with just a little sewing but now I my creative MoJo is back and I have so many projects running through my head and can't wait to get busy.

But right now I'll just show what I have completed since the last time I posted in April.
Oh and by the way the beginning of this  month marked the 9th year of this blog. Hard to believe but I have also have plans for my blog and will share that soon but for now it's but to show and tell

 Here is the knitting FO.

The month of May also brought some sadness for our home  
we lost our friend and companion of 13 years 
He was such a big part of our lives and was so friendly with everyone who came to the house

We miss him very much


  1. Sorry about your dear pet Pete. Wonderful projects you have been busy. I particularly fell in love with the shawl. Such a wonderful pattern. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thank you very much but I'm nowhere near as busy as you have been. Your internet must still be working. I hope you to have a good weekend

  2. I'm sorry about your fur child; it's so sad when they go. He was lucky to have you as his family. You've been very industrious during coronavirus. So many great projects. I especially like the project bag.

    1. Thank you for your sweet thought and I hope your furry friends are with you for many years to come. Your place is so pretty and you have been very busy yourself with your yard. Pretty inside and out

  3. Congrats on 9 years as a blogger. You have been busy and made some lovely things. So sorry for your loss of dear Pete! Our fur-children are a very important part of our lives.

    1. Yes our fur kids are. It hasn't felt like I've gone much, so thank you very much for your compliment. I'm looking forward to many more years of blogging.

  4. Sorry about Pete, have two cats myself and can not imagine not having them around any more. Lovely knitting projects. Love the scarf.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
