🎈🎈🎈 Two Birthdays...Two Afghans....🎈🎈🎈







The month of April, is a very busy one for this family!!!

My eldest daughter is April 26...and my son is April 29th...

What do you get these big kids for gifts???

Yup...you guessed it!!! AFGHANS my MOI!!! hahaha!!

The brown/beige/creamy one was for my daughter...

The grey/charcoal/blue/black one was for my son...





I opted for Pom Poms for my daughters.....



And Tassels for my sons....









I also managed to crochet a few more Cat Mats....

The Cats really gravitate to these....strange,eh??

For those of you who are crocheters....

The grey mix was all Vanna's Choice yarn....lovely,soft, squishy, easy to work with.... 

The dreamy creamy beige brown one was Bernat Premium Tweed for the main colour, and a few of Vanna's Choice for the browns....

I especially liked adding the scalloped border to my daughter's....really softened up the edges....

I kept my son's border more plain...more manly! hahaha!!

They are always so thankful when I make them something...

And I truly enjoy making them for them. ♥️

Some people say I should sell them in an ETSY shop...but to me...it would take all the pleasure away. Not to mention the prices people pay for these type of handmade items!!!!!! How would you ever put a price on it????

To me....they are priceless...πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’š

These are several of the Cat Mats......



I have had a very busy week...

2 days at the cottage, working on the garden clean-up...

And we were lucky enough to have Miss V for Friday and a sleepover...

Her and I kept ourselves very busy...

Last evening...we all met in Burlington at a lovely wee Mexican gluten-free restaurant called "The Burro"...

This was to celebrate my Son's 40th birthday.... 

We had a really great time...and the food was fabulous!! 

I have put a few pics up on IG...but I will organize a post for later in the week...

This post is all about the CROCHET!!! hahaha!!!

          Hope you are all well...

              Enjoy your week ahead...

                    Cheers!   :o)

Weekend Cottage Trip....and Guests ✨


 We got out to the cottage Saturday before lunch...

What a pleasure to see a calm...if not kind of cloudy sky at the lake...

The day brightened as it went along...

A few things were in bloom...but not as much as I had thought there would be... 

Still lots of Tulips to come...






 My son...for Christmas.... gave me this really cool log carving of a Pelican!!

We finally got him down to the lake...and in a nice cozy spot...

He kinda smiles at you while you are sitting on the beach deck! hahaha!!

The shot of him...that I took from inside, gives a much better idea of just how much like a Pelican he really looks!!

Pretty cool,eh???


As the evening approached...the sky became very cloudy, and the darn wind kicked up!!

Thanks goodness we did not light the bonfire, as we had talked about!!

We would have been smoked out!!

But...as the sun was setting...the sunset was incredible!!

Absolutely stunning...... 

 Sunday was very sunny...the wind changed its mind a few times...but we managed to enjoy the sunshine...


We had some surprise visitors...and we couldn't have been happier!!!

Here is Miss V signing my guest book...she drew a lovely picture of her and me in the gardens... ♥️♥️♥️

 


 We explored the beach....

Threw rocks...she played "BONG" ball with her Papa...and she showed us how she has learned to skip at school!!!







We came home on Monday afternoon....

Time for laundry...groceries...etc...

We are heading back in the morning...after we visit Miss V at school, and watch her receive The Principal's Award!!!! She is so excited...hopefully I can take a few pics!!

Hope you are all well...and enjoying the nice weather...in between the nasty weather!!

Raining and damp today...but supposed to be nice for the next few days...

Baked cajun Cod and homemade oven fries with zuchinni and greek salad for dinner...

Enjoy your week everyone...

                  Cheers!  :o)

πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§Thru The window...On A Very Rainy Day....πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§










Hope you are all well...

We have had rain for 2 days now...except last night... the Sun came out just as we were sitting down to dinner... 

I managed to get a few nice photos thru the kitchen window today...

Mr Cardinal came for a few peanuts that I threw to him...

He knows how to wrap me around his finger...for sure!!

I actually got MYSELF 2 dishcloths made for the cottage...

I sure hope they don't fall apart after one use! hahaha!!!

We will be off to the cottage in the morning...the rain is supposed to STOP!!

I can hardly wait to see all of the Daffodils and Tulips down there...

Have a great weekend...

          See you all soon...

                      Cheers!  :o)

A Quick Hello!!!





Hope that you are all well and had a lovely Easter weekend...

We had our meal on the Friday...which turned out to the best day of the weekend!

Rain and clouds moved in for the remainder....

Miss V had a great time...loved all her Easter treats...πŸ’œ

This handsome fella kept me company while I dressed up the front step for Easter.... 









 I managed to finish 3 cotton crocheted dishcloths for the girls as an Easter treat...

I gave Miss V a small basket...and a garden tool belt...she was in heaven!!

We got the Pumpkin seeds planted yesterday, as there was a PD day from school...

We also baked...raked...rode...walked...coloured...PHEW!!!

      Have a great week...

        I hope to be back before it is over......

                  Cheers!   :o)
