I'm curious to know what kind of response I'll get on this lacy hat. This one is made in 100% super soft cotton yarn. I think adding the rose in the same color as the hat makes it fancy and the right choice to show off baby at church. The rose is adorned by two crochet leave. This flower can be removed if a more casual look is desired.
On our second day we visited a real neat place called Deadwood which has a restaurant and rides for kids and adults. Caleb holds to ticket for the train ride. Notice Taite wore his Batman cape. The owners of this Deadwood in Williamston have recreated a western town set back in the 1870s. The original tv series Deadwood was located in South Dakota.
Forgot to mention that during our train ride, we saw skeletons, coffins, Indian tepees, aliens and their space ships, alien monsters....What fun....I'm sure I'll be going back to this place.

Our first stop was just outside Washington, North Carolina. We joined Andrea and her family for a summer church gathering at a beautiful house along the Pamlico River.
Caleb even goes underwater....Both boys learn from each other. Taite learned to do this at a much earlier age.

He only has one month and a half to complete his tour in Afghanistan.
I'm thankful to the many who have kept him in their prayers and have
"thank your son for his service."
Do continue to pray for the safety of all the men and women who are
currently away from home serving our country.

The moment I saw these adorable fabric Sock Monkey buttons I knew I would put them to use. I purchased them form SassyBelleButtons. The first time I purchased, I ordered the wrong kind. I assumed all fabric covered buttons were for sewing. Steph was very understanding and she shipped the kind I needed at no cost. She sells these buttons for sewing and also plain with nothing on the back, so they can be used for decorating cards or scrapbooks.
This card will make someone special smile on their birthday. It makes me smile and reminds me of my childhood. I added a little stitching touch -- just because, it's what I love to do most. Thank you Connie for the papers. I was able to make quite a few since you gave me lots of it.
The monkeys look cute anywhere and I made no mistake choosing to adorn the seven petal daisy on this crochet headband. This flower looks larger on this baby doll. It measures two and half inches wide.

I've caught the crochet flower fever.....
They are fun and quick to make and so many possibilities.
I love this time of the year with all the colors around. No heat doesn't bother me. I slept in my native Panama without air conditioning until age 22. Now I'm spoiled, like everyone else who comes to live in the United States.

This is what happens when the squash is not picked on time. They get huge. This one measured about 12 inches.

The weather was nearly perfect today. There is plenty to do indoors but I had to make time and sit outside before dark. Carla spent a good part of the afternoon on the porch. She has an easy life.
I have found another great use forthe mini flowers is to decorate greeting cards.
The wainescotting has been finished and the toilet installed properly. Cliff had to remove the toilet and reinstall because of a slight leak.
