Lady in Red

I have been giving a try at kick boxing to get myself motivated to exercise again.

I have a very generous friend at work who is a kick boxing instructor and decided to give us a class once a week for free.

Yes, it is hard work and it is kicking my behind I have to say... I'm also not the most coordinated person when it comes to exercise classes. But I have not let that stop me and I have now been doing it for 3 weeks... And I love it! I will refrain from showing you any pictures or videos as I'm sure it would win one of the Funniest Videos shows on tv...

Because she is so nice and generous I decided I would make her a cowl to keep her warm when the weather start getting cold.

Her favorite color is red and I think this one will look just perfect on her...

Just wanted to show you a picture as I just gave it to her today.

I just bought the yarn ... its Clutch. It's hand dyed here in Mt. hood, Or and the pattern is from a crochet magazine. I'll have to give you the details later as I don't have the magazine with me.

Hope you are having a fun week and enjoying whatever may be that you are doing this summer ...well, it might not even be summer for you... But I hope you are enjoying every day...

As always thanks for stopping by and I so appreciate all of your comments and messages.
Have a lovely day.
Loves :)

New Project and ForeverWorking on Blanket

Yes, I continue to work on my niece's blanket...
It feels like I'll never finish it...and that is ALL I do.

Although I have to say I have been very busy this summer. Still working on our house sale and cleaning, cleaning, cleaning.
So...I will give you another glimpse at how much progress I made and let you take a pick at my new project ... a cute...easy cowl...
I have made about 3 of them this summer (but forgot to take pictures and show you). I promise I'll show you this one when I finish it...
I'm not sure about the pattern as it is very easy and I got it from a friend (only 2 rows pattern).
I'll make sure to get the source and will post it when I show you the finished project.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week and enjoying it wherever you are. I'm really enjoying the wonderful sunny time we are having here in Oregon.

As always thank you so much for all your comments and visits ...they make my day :)
Lots of love to you :)

My Craft Room

Hi there friends...
It's been a while since I've been here. I've been missing you all, but we have had a lot of busyness going on in my household. We have decided to sale our house and with that decision it comes 16 years of cleaning up, hiding things in the attic and keeping the house spotless and ready to show at all times.
We are not moving too far, but still I have to say its not my favorite thing to do. Constantly cleaning and trying to keep my house looking the best so somebody else can see it the same way I do. I do love my house, but we feel that our kids are growing up and we need a little bit more space and for sure another garage (as my daughter is taking her driver's license this next week and my son is right behind her).
We are now in the selling our house phase ... after that it will be the moving phase ... and then waiting for our new house to be built...it sounds all so crazy but also so very exciting ...

But before we move i have been talking about redoing my craft room and I wanted to show it to you before I have to take it all down n get ready to move. I worked on it for a long time and the last thing missing was to paint the walls. I was going to paint the walls grey, but decided to not paint. I think that it will look nicer when we are in our new house with the grey walls, but for now I wanted to show you the little details and what I have been up to...

Hope you like it... :)

I may be dropping by a little less until we move because all the movement around here, but I'll be checking in and letting you know how it all progresses..

I'm still making progress on my niece's blanket ... Check the picture ...almost there :)

Thanks so very much for stopping by to see me and for all your comments...It makes my day !

Have a GREAT, marvelous, wonderful week.

Blanket Progress

Making progress on the blanket...

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July celebration.
I have the day off today and a long weekend so I'm trying to get as much done as possible for my niece's blanket...
I think I'm doing pretty well and hope to make pretty good progress so I don't have to be stressed when it gets closer to the wedding.
I'm really enjoying making this blanket, but I have to say that I have been having a little bit of withdraws... it's much harder to me to stick to one project than I thought...

However, I think it's all worth it and that my niece certainly deserves it...so I have to keep my eyes closed to anything new and any other project I would want to work on right now. . . and just crochet on.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and as always thank you so much for taking the time to stop by to "see" me ... I just love it!!!
