Ruby's Slippers

I just tried my hand at crocheting some baby booties/slippers. In fact I made some ruby slippers for Ruby!! 
I still need to attach the straps & I am gonna put a few decorative buttons on there too.   
(I used a pattern from, designed by Carolyn Christmas, "Mary Janes". Thank you so much for making it available!)

Halloween at the Zoo!

Got to go to the Zoo with the kiddos for a little early Halloween party! It was fun, but it definitely was a "zoo" there!

Quote of The Day:

Okay, Okay....I just forget that the computer is over here! Nap time these days consists of laundry & a bit of crocheting :) Actually the last couple of days Ruby has had a hard time taking a nap, so almost zero quiet time until bedtime for me.

There Just Isn't Enough Time....

I can't believe that I haven't posted something in over two months. I hurt my foot & then school started for Charlie & then it was just one thing after another, after another! Whewwwwww!!! I am worn out thinking about it.
Anyhow, not too much has changed here at the Keasler house. I am still crocheting like a crazy woman! But unfortunately I can't post some of my projects here, because they are gonna be Christmas presents. I will definitely try & get my Granny Square a day going again & my quote of the day! Sometimes my quotes help me out too!
Little Ruby turned one a couple a weeks ago & I am a little sad about that :( No more baby's all toddler stuff now. She is cruising around the furniture & eating big girl food & we just got the okay to switch her to cow's milk. Crazy times!
Who needs hands?

My little boy is a little man

Off to Kindergarten he went this morning. I got tearful for just a second, but no major waterworks! I am still in shock that he is five. They just grow up way too fast.

Needing to catch up

Well, I am slowly getting back into the swing of things here at home. Even being injured, I have begun the process of getting it together. 
Charlie is going off to kindergarten tomorrow morning. I am kinda sad. I just can't believe he is going to "big boy school".
I have been crocheting, but I haven't taken any pictures to post. I have gotten involved in a new project & have temporarily abandoned the Granny Square a day project. I will get back to that soon too.

Just waiting

I have a doctors appointment on Wednesday.  So until then, I really don't know anything. Hopefully they will give me things to do to get back to normal. I am going crazy not being able to just jump up & do what I want to do.

Our last day!

Here we are on our last day. I think everyone is ready to get home. It has been fun, but it is just time to be on our way.

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Sad sad day...

Well, the good news is that it's not broken. But all my ligaments are torn across/around my foot.

We survived!

It has been a couple of days, but just wanted everyone to know we were all doing okay!
The ride went smooth & pretty quick considering we stopped a few times.
It is hot here, just like at home...with no rain.
I have been crocheting a little less than usual, but I still have managed to work up a few things.

I am still fiddling around with new patterns & colors! I just can't decide. If I put all the odd ones together I suppose that would make for an interesting piece. Anyhow, I really need to get busy packing & preparing for our trip!

No Granny today

I did not get around to the next Granny Square in the book today, sorry. I did however fiddle around with a few different squares & some color combinations. I just can't decide if I should go bright colors or if I should do a toned down project this time. I need a "square" project, because I think they are easier to travel with, and I will be MIA from the blogger world for a week. Anyhow, if anyone drops in & has a suggestion, just let me know...which square or what colors??? Or both :)

Granny Square of the day # 20

Day # 20 brings us the Dania Square! I enjoyed the bright colors I chose...I think it would make a lovely blanket or pillow cover.

My new crochet love...

I really, really loved crocheting this cushion! I could have gone on & on with it, but decided not to.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Lucy at Attic24! What a wonderful pattern & awesome tutorial!

Granny Square of the day # 18

Day # 18 is the Tri-Colored Clusters. I really like the looks of this one. It looks a bit Celtic to me. It's funny because it says "Experienced" at the top & I just didn't believe it looking at the picture. Ha Ha...joke was on inexperienced me...It was a bit challenging figuring it out for sure. But I think it turned out alright all the same.

My deepest apologies ;)

I was so politely informed by my mother that I was not living up to the title of my blog.  I have fallen addicted to crochet & that is all I have posted recently.  She loyally checks everyday & I know she is looking for pictures of her grandkids.  Sorry, are some new ones to chew on for awhile :)

We tried, that is Stella's head, bottom right corner :)
