.. Playing Catch-up ...2015-7-22 ...


Hello....

...sharing the lovely orchid I got for my Birthday....

.... It's the only one blooming in the Orchid House  .... here's a close up of the flowers...



... I also had a beautiful Morning Tea with my son and daughter-in-law......




Mum has had her hair permed and her Specialist is very pleased with her general health...   apart from slowing down and general tiredness, Mum is doing well... xxxx





...our friend Edna, who had the fall and broke her leg, is now in a Rehabilitation hospital doing physio...  she is recovering well so far...





... all the repairs that needed doing to the house after the massive hail storm damage are all finished and everything is back to normal  I'm happy to say....




... this was a pretty top I had that was too tight for me ... I loved the colour and the material so I cut the bottom off and hemmed it and now it's a scarf I'm happy with...


...I'm crocheting a throw blanket ..... I do some while I play Yahtzee with Mum..... she has slowed down a little and it takes her a bit longer to make her decisions... so I crochet a couple of stitches while she has her go so she won't feel she is holding up the game...


... have a great day ......
I'll see you all soon ....
Hugs... Barb  xxxx

  4. Hello Barb. I don't know if I pushed the "sign out" button instead of "publish" but my comment didn't appear.

    Anyway, your orchid is gorgeous. Hope your birthday was wonderful.

    Your Mom is doing well, in part, because of all your care and dedication. You are a loving daughter!

    The scarf is just lovely, too! What a great idea.

    Your blanket is going to be beautiful. I could never do that! Don't have that talent but you do!

    Hope the rest of your day is delightful. Susan p.s. Thanks so much for all your sweet visits.

  5. ... Hello Susan.... I had a great birthday and thanks for your wishes.. xxxx

    I plan to do more material scarves like this... I love it....

    The blanket is a basic double crochet stitch and is a continuous 'square' spiral... my sister showed me how to do the corners.......has to be simple for me to do .. hehehe

    I'm lucky that Mum accepts what the Drs. say she can and can't eat without a fuss.... makes it easier for me planning meals .....

    Have a great day... Hugs ... Barb xxx
