Crocheted Tablecloth

Many, many years ago my grandma and grandpa crocheted this tablecloth. Since "the move" I have been slowly going through stuff and documenting handwork from the past. My grandparents crocheted this together. You cannot tell who crocheted which pieces. It is so wonderful. It is rectangular so it looks different on my round table but it is so beautiful.
You really cannot get the perspective. Perhaps I should have laid it on a bed.
Imagine the amount of time it took to crochet all these little stitches.
I love it.

Wednesday, December 12, 2012


Cold weather finally arrived. It "snowed" at my house. Well just a dusting but still it was snow. Unfortunately I'm still having picture issues so I can't post my chairs with snow on them. Here is the good and the bad. Too hot and I feel awful, too cold and it can be tolerable or wack me out. It was 24 degrees yesterday morning. That's pretty chilly for Texas. I love that we are having cooler weather but it does tend to play havock with my joints, seems lately especially more in my back. But I refuse to let it get me down. I've gone Christmas shopping with the girls and Monday night went to Jo's Christmas program at school. As long as I am on all my meds if there is an issue usually good ole Tylenol will help. I have discovered that it has to be "Real Tylenol" not generic. Because of the meds I take I can only use Tylenol not Motrin, etc. So I am enjoying the cool weather because it is a nice change and with that still crocheting up a storm. Wish I could share pictures of projects. Once the issue is corrected there will have to be a big picture post.

Fast And Furious

I am still here, crocheting as fast and furious as I can. I am having issues with posting pictures so sadly I cannot show you what I am working on. Some things will have to wait till after Christmas anyway. Hopefully I will have the picture issue straightened out by then. When my doctor asked me if I needed something for all the stress that has been going on around here I said nope, I just keep buying yarn and whipping up new projects. We are supposed to get some cold weather here tonight so perhaps winter is arriving.

It Is Too Hot For December

This looks nice. Yes I know in a few months I may wish for some warmer weather but really, it is December 3rd and it has been 83 degrees today. We are wearing shorts, t-shirts and flip flops. We have broken records for high temperatures the last few days. Perhaps we do not have to go to the snow extreme but could we at least have some fall temperatures?
