I confess I have had a little bit of a crochet doily obsession as of late.  To prove my point enjoy a  few quick IPad captures:

worked this beauty from a diagram pattern. So excited I finally made the plunge!
The plan is to turn this one into a bowl.   I’ll share when it’s complete.

I almost gave up on this  because I don’t really care for patterns that require breaking off and finishing things separately. Call me crazy but I like to have the freedom to rip stitches if I’m not thrilled with how the pattern is working up……However I loved how this turned out so happy that I hung in there!    Find the free pattern  HERE

in my world these items go together 🙂

 

If you are one of the lucky folks who have a three-day weekend….ENJOY!

I am not one of them.

Peace!

Some words of wisdom:   Although sometimes you may feel lost in the crowd know you are blessed to have been born into a family surrounded by lifetime friends in the making!  Siblings understand you like no other, support you regardless of the circumstance and truly love and care for you.  Try to return these favors with gratitude and kindness. Your sisters will always  have your back with the very best of intentions.  They are now and always will  be your very best friends!

1970’s version of my thirteen year old self roasting marshmallows with some of my siblings and cousins.   I like my marshmallows burnt to a crisp…..don’t judge me!  lol
That blonde girl is me standing next to  the most amazing people I know, my sister Nan & brother Thomas. (In the blue shirt).

70’s Halloween photo of me with some of my siblings. ( brothers Thomas and Chris, me and my sister Nannie Noonie). Halloween also happens to be my beautiful Mother’s birthday! I think she looked forward to the couple of hours  peace & quiet while the kiddies got to trick or treat!

I was a little older than 13 at this time…thinking around 20yrs.

good times, good times!

Be especially kind to your parents no matter how irritating they may seem at your age. Someday you will not have the opportunity to let them know how much you truly appreciate and love them for everything they do & for the supportive loving parents that they are. Understand that they are not perfect.  Consider the fact that Mom and Dad are making many sacrifices for you & your siblings to enjoy all the fruits of their hard labor.

The best parents in the universe on their wedding day.
Love them both so much!
Dad passed on in 1990 from brain cancer. I miss him so much every single day. I am very fortunate that I had the opportunity to spend time with him and tell him how much I love him before he left us. RIP my dear Dad!

Cleaning your room is really not that big of a deal when you consider the time and energy your parents place into raising you.  Be grateful & appreciative.

Never forget where you come from, who you are and the people who mean the most.  Your life has only just begun….there is so many wonderful opportunities to look forward to!!!!!
