Say Farewell To Beautiful August

August 31, 2017

Good morning.  Today we say farewell to this beautiful month of August.  Hopefully, the super weather will stick around for another few weeks.  After all, it is still Summer.  Well, I'm a bit late in posting this morning but that's because I added a new page to my blog. 

I've had a request for the afghan pattern that I've been using.  It's an easy pattern and it looks beautiful.  So, if you look in the right side column near the top of the page, you'll find a link for the page "Patterns."  Any other requests, let me know and I'll try to publish other pattern requests on this new page.

Please note that I added the yarn requirements for both the double strand and the single strand, along with the different brand yarns.  I also added the pattern (color) arrangements that I've used.  Have fun.

Yesterday the new box of yarn arrived, and of course I just had to play with some of it.  Here's a photo of one of the yarns called "Cactus" and one of the dolly dresses made with it.  I just love this one.

This is another dolly dress that I'm working on.  This one is "Flamingo."  Another gorgeous color!

Of course, the dresses aren't finished yet.  I still have to put the embellishments on them.  I had to order a few more dollies though.  When they arrived, I'll put the dresses on the dolls and then finish the embellishments.  After that, I'll take new photos.  These little dollies are soooo cute!

Last night, DIL Janet was here and she brought some delicious dessert goodies with her.  The little cupcakes are so yummy!  Plus there was carrot cake and strawberry shortcake cake.  We both ate the strawberry shortcake cake first.  Ooooooooh!!!!!  So yummy!  I saved my carrot cake for later, and this morning I had one of scrumptious little cupcakes for breakfast.  (We only do this once in a while, maybe once every four to six weeks)

Pogo surprised us by eating his doggie food and asking for more.  Wow!  Will wonders never cease!  He also had a plate of doggie food for breakfast this morning.  God bless his little heart!!  Pretty soon, I'll have to start thinking about what Santa can bring for Pogo this year.  He has so much, that it's hard to think up something new. 

Maybe this year, instead of getting presents, I'll let Pogo go shopping and buy presents for a lot of doggies (and kitties) at a local shelter.  I'll have to make a few calls to see how many toys Pogo will have to buy. 

Today I have a new quick page for you. This one might be fun for some of your photos taken by the seashore.  Enjoy.

Here is your download link:

I also have an image that I borrowed from the web to share with you.  I just thought this was such a fun image, and so very much like the "Maxine" attitude. 

Well, now it's time for a fresh cup of coffee while I think about what sort of mischief Pogo and I can get into today.  So till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Ohhhh Edna,
That Cactus yarn is just beautiful. They all are gorgeous tho. And looks like a fun project. The Flamingo doll is just gorgeous as well. I love the colors. So fun that you have new yarn to play with.

Your evening with Janet sounds so wonderful. I think that I would have done just as you did. Strawberry Short Cake, Carrot Cake and then Cupcake. At least you had some will power. I would have probably gone on sugar over load hee hee.

The QP is really beautiful and thank you for adding a new page for the patterns. I have the packet that you printed out for me. I am really looking forward to some of your new projects. I think that you come up with such amazing things to do.

I can see a bit better today. I am not wearing my patch at the moment. Today I can take it off every 4 hours for a little while. Everyone left before putting the drops in my eyes this morning. I will try to do them myself later on.

Have an awesome day. Hugs to you and Pogo and I think that Pogo buying gifts for the animal shelters is a great idea! Cisco does too! Love, Beth and Cisco.
P.S. Jonathan is coming home in about 2 hours to take me to the Social Security Office and he said he would put the drops in my eyes before we leave. Have a Blessed Day my friend!
