I finished a baby set for the OB Ward...  Everything here I've posted about/crocheted before. But the booties are a new pattern I got recently.  I added ties to them, chained 80 and sl st back.

I was cleaning out Eon's closet this morning. This is all from his closet. :0  On first glance/without knowing, you would think, "What a slob!"  But this was all in bags and boxes that he still has not unpacked from when we moved here.   And, I was getting overwhelmed unpacking/organizing it all.. And, we have moved SO much in the past ten years....   Well I posted this on Facebook (and said technically it was all still unpacked so I unpacked it for him). My irritating sister-in-law commented "Oh my God!!!! They are old enough to do their own laundry and that would not happen in my house!"  Oh. She put an "LOL" on the end of it, so it was all okay...   Not.  This is the Mom who abandoned her own kids. I don't know all the details, but I can tell you she was not a good Mom.  And she's going to tell me that my 14 year old son should be doing his own laundry???....   

I should have posted this for her. But, I unfriended her.
Grrrrr....   What is wrong with people..  

By the way, I found the afghan I posted about a few days ago, in his closet.  And three pencil sharpeners (he says he doesn't have one ever...), three pairs of nail clippers, a calculator, a USB flash drive, three pairs of jeans, two pairs of pajama pants, three pairs of shorts...

Scrap Blankets Progress... And Rainbow Bridge Doggies :

I took a picture of my scrap log cabin baby blanket... 

This was/is another scrap strip Tunisian blanket I had going. I don't even know when I started this, I forgot I even finished one whole strip. I was looking for the little strip on the left that I knew I had started.. :P And I had two little strips?  I don't even know.. 

This is one that I finished when our boys were all younger...  I took this picture when we still lived in Colorado.  I don't know what happened to it.  :/    I posted it on our oldest sons' wall on Facebook this morning asking if he had it (but other things have come to my attention since then that are more important...)  :(

Some muffins I made, and the hotpads Barbara sent me. I used them when I made these muffins. :D
I found out that Bailey died last night.  I am so sad about it....   Evan said she wanted to go out a couple nights ago, in the middle of the night. And Jayce let her out, but she ran away.  Well something attacked her.  :( I don't know what (they don't know either), but it must have been pretty bad.  I could just cry. And I probably will.  I kept saying "Take her to the vet." But they are broke... Which I can understand.  They gave her a bath and shaved her and bandaged her wounds.   It must have been way worse than what I even imagined. Poor Bay Leaf!!! :(  I texted Evan yesterday and he said she was howling...   I would have taken her in if I couldn't even make my car payment. If there was nothing they could have done for her, they could at least have put her out of her misery. She was probably in terrible pain.  I feel so awful for her... And them.  I'm not sure they should get another dog...  Poor Bay Leaf...  :(

And, my brother and sister in law's dog died a couple weeks ago, too...   Sweetie.  She was very old, 13 years old and not in good shape.  She had a tumor and all kinds of other problems.  She was shaking so bad and couldn't walk and she wasn't eating. So my sister in law took her in and they had her put to sleep.  I know I have posted about Eli house sitting for them, and watching their dog... This is her.   Sad day today...

A Card, Christmas Stuff again, and Another Update on Dad

I haven't blogged in a while. It seems like I have a lot to blog about. But, I can't find any pictures... We got this brand new computer. And every time I upload pictures, it goes into a weird folder. Like July 2011. ???? What?  I don't know anything about computers. Also, websites will not load. But I know we have internet.. Sigh...   Anyway, this is a card I made and sent a couple weeks ago. I don't know if she has received it or not yet. I saw it on Pinterest and thought it was fun. A Kleenex box that says "Get Well Soon."  There wasn't any instructions, I just tried to copy the picture...

I was trying to find my crocheted Christmas tree the other day, to work on "ornaments" (I still haven't..)  And I found this old thing. :P  It's a Yo-Yo Snowman. I think it was from a Crafting Traditions magazine. I can't remember.  I will have to look one  day to see if I can find it..  Wait. I just googled it. I don't know if this is the pattern but it sure looks like it! Snow Yo-Man. Other than that, I am drawing a blank on when I crocheted it..  

I know I already posted the Granny Square Candy Boot. But... I got a candy "jar" to fit in it.  :D

I got it at Michsaels. Well guess what? Ants were all inside the container the other morning (I am not the one who left the container open sitting on the table..)  Grrrr!! How are there ants in November???  Oh well.  

And, this is the crocheted Christmas tree I was actually looking for. I haven't crocheted any "ornaments" for it. But, I have been looking for some. I got the mini-ornaments at Jo-Ann's on sale a while ago. (Now I just need pins to hang them..)  I saw a cute crocheted garland in a new magazine I got (shhhh), I want to try it in thread.  The magazine is Annie's Christmas 2016 special issue. There's also some mini stocking ornaments. There's also another cute snowman in there.   I haven't started any of them. But I did start another Santa scarf.  I want to do an Elf one, too. There isn't really any pattern, and I can't find anywhere where I wrote down what I did. (What is wrong with me?...) But I did go on Facebook (where I saw the scarves- Santa and Elf), and found her "general" instructions...  

Anyway, my Dad gets to go home on Friday.  They had to have a handicap ramp and railing built (done) in order for him to be released.  He is doing so well, I am so shocked... What I am shocked the most about is his 100% completely positive attitude about the whole thing. I guess that's the most important thing towards recovery.  Or, one of the important things... But it helps a lot.   :)

Halloween Food, Christmas Project, and a Dog Sweater..

I started a dog coat/sweater for Jetta.  :)  I haven't made her one since the one in Nevada (which didn't even fit her..)  So.. This time I am making a Large. It's the Bernat Super Value Crochet Dog Coat pattern.  Doesn't she look like she is getting old? :(  She'll be 7 in January...

So far...

And, I finished a Christmas Project. Crochet Christmas Bootie Candy Dish  I think I might need a different "dish" inside it..  That's a 18.5 ounce Progresso Soup can and it looks too small.  

I made some Mummy Dogs in a Coffin for Halloween dinner (macaroni and cheese and corn, too).  :P

Some Halloween pretzels That isn't where I originally saw the recipe, but it's the same thing.

I bought a new Halloween candy bowl. I had one in Tennessee... Must have sold it at the moving sale. I liked that one, too.  Oh well.  :P  Now that Halloween is over I am all about Christmas.. :D
