Hello, It's Me...

...I'm still alive.  I haven't been blogging very good... I don't know if I posted about all the problems we were having with our youngest son.  Not that he is a bad kid. He was just depressed and acting on it... Being bullied at school and the school would do NOTHING.  I won't get into it.. But long story short, I think he is doing better. Although I am always "on the watch" for things...    I have been crocheting but I will only post the "major" things I've done since my last post.  This is a blanket (I did two of these exact same ones, I think) One was for my cousin who had a baby girl. The other one was for my husband's co-worker and his wife. They had a girl, too. She had her on Father's Day. Although, he was already a father from a previous marriage. 

This is the sweater set I crocheted to go with my cousins' baby blanket. I also did a hat. I don't know why I didn't take a picture of it...

I got a Santa cookie jar and some Christmas tree plates at Goodwill. They have one shelf that is all Christmas stuff. 

I actually just did this today, start and finished. I re-potted the Christmas Cactus, too. I kind of modified the pattern, it is the Poinsettia Flowerpot in the Handmade Crochet Holidays magazine by Crochet World.  I hope my cactus gets lots of blooms on it this Christmas.

A granny square baby blanket I recently finished for the OB Ward and sent last month. The square was from the 200 Crochet Blocks book by Jan Eaton. I think it was square #101. But I don't remember.

Some of the zucchini from our garden. (Sigh...)  I don't know what I am going to do with them all. I have two freezer bags full of shredded zucchini. My husband is already complaining about no room in the freezer... UGH...  

I have baked a lot with the zucchini, too. Lemon Zucchini Bread, (so yummy!) Chocolate Zucchini Bread, Spicy Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies. They were all so yummy. Plus my husband has grilled zucchini a few times, and put some in pasta salad.
