Thank you, Kristine!

A very nice lady emailed me and provided a correction for my Cherries Jubilee 12" Square pattern. I will list the correction here, and then edit the correction into the original post.
Kristine, I appreciate you taking the time to let me hear from you!

Helpful Libby

So, Libby and I (?) are working on a crochet-along bag with RockingChairCrocheters. Its been a while since I've made something out of yarn...she was happy!
I'm actually making two bags during the crochet-along because I've been home from work since Tuesday. Bronchitis, injured ribs, and Dr.'s orders to stay home and get well. Took about 18 hours for the boredom to set in!

The two bags I am working on. The green is two strands of baby 3 ply. The other is 4 ply ww and needs about 10 rows added before I can move to the next part

Today's CatStuff: Just the never ending crochet help from the two olders
Today's CraftyStuff: Staving off boredom, working on the bags and Mild Menagerie
Today's PuterStuff: Been working on some xs patterns. Nothing earth shattering!

Finished Object 2006

I finished my sister's counted cross stitch cross. Now I'm looking for a suitable frame for it. But...IT'S DONE!
Have several other projects on the frames or hooks, depending on what it is we're talking about!

Today's crafty stuff: frames? Working on Cat's Eyes, finishing an afghan, some other things.
Today's cat stuff: Been gone 3 days, and the girls missed us of course, but Jazz REALLY missed Jimmy! Silly cat
Today's puter stuff: Just mail, and the usual work stuff!

Back to the Big City!

The LTC facility where I work was purchased by another company. Now they think we should all be retrained! So its off to the big city, Albuquerque, to learn how to do the job I've been doing for 8 years! ~sigh~
The lady I sent the doily I just finished to was kind enough to send me a picture of it, so I could put it here.

Also, a peek at my next design project...
