Your ~ Weekend ~ Chuckle πŸ˜ŽπŸŒ·πŸ’•

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I hope you’re doing well on this fine Sunday!

Well, I use the term ‘fine’ loosely…it is the start of Daylight Savings Time after all πŸ˜‰

That always throws me off for a few days! πŸ™ƒ

Here’s a little reminder of what to do…


This took me a second…😁


From the category ‘What was he thinking?’ 😁


This one had me rolling…not sure why though 🀣

That’s all for today… I hope you found a chuckle or two! 😁

I’msending you Smiles πŸ™‚ Hugs πŸ€— and Love πŸ’•


What’s New You Ask? Okay, I’ll tell ya

Hello my lovely friends

I’ve been planning this post – okay, some might call it procrastinating – for a while now. Mostly because I was afraid that I start rambling…so I tried to get it perfect in my head.
Then I realized that this is not getting anybody anywhere.

So, without further ado…here are the News

My Vision Board

I’ve been hearing, reading a lot about Vision Boards lately. That made me think about where I wanna be one, two, five years from now.
And while I don’t have a physical board with pictures taped all over it – I do know now what I want my (creative, professional [???]) future to be.

Well – I love working with yarn, I do love to inspire and be inspired by the beautiful work of others, I love to teach and learn. So on top of my ‘Vision Board’ it would say…

I would like to will own a pretty house, preferably by the ocean…a big lake will do, and turn it into a yarn-, book-, coffee-shop!Β 

Something like this…


It would have comfy chairs and sofas, shelves with books and yarn, where people could sit and read, and crochet or knit, all the while surrounded by air infused with a pleasant coffee fragrance. And we would have the occasional yarn-retreat – with a whole weekend dedicated to pretty yarns, patterns, and friendship!

Can you see it?

My lovely friend Michele can…so much so that she agreed to be my partner in crime this wonderful adventure.

But – every journey starts with the first step.

We started a Facebook group, Colorful (Yarn) Creations, Inspiration, and YOU – maybe you’d like to join us?

We started a weekly Crochet Group in town – if you’re in the area…maybe you’d like to peek in



And – we’re planning our first yarn retreat! EEEK! It’s still very much in the planning stages, but we’re getting there.

Here’s what we know so far:

~ It’s going to be a free one – since neither one of us has done anything like this before, and we don’t even know if we’re good at it.
I’m thinking reading the ‘Betty Hechtman – Yarn Retreat’ books is not really a great reference.

~ It’ll be a one day retreat – a Saturday in May

~We do know where we want to hold it…but still gotta talk to the landlady

~We’ll do one project – a small crossbody purse. Now we gotta plan out the afternoon

That’s all we have for now – I will keep you updated!


I did get some crocheting done…



Another Idea

Since I got a nifty camera for Christmas I’ve been waiting for Mother Nature to do something pretty so I can capture it!

Then I was thinking – I would love to see photographs taken by all of you.

So what I would like to do is start a ‘Photograph –something‘ – I don’t know what to call it. It’s not a challenge or a contest…maybe ‘A hunt for images’?

The way I see it is that – for the first one – I would post five keywords, and photos, then you would go out and capture images (following the prompts) and post them for all of us to see.
I could collect ideas from all of you, and every 2, 3 weeks post a new ‘Prompt Post’
What do you think?

I think it would be a fun project that would bring us all a little closer together, get to know each other.

I’ll leave you now to think on thatΒ Β Β Β Β Β Β  hoping I wasn’t too ‘rambly’

I look forward to hearing from you!

Until then

A Kansas Icestorm ~ A Few Impressions πŸŒ¨

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

We always knew that Kansas weather is a bit crazy 😏 But yesterday it got outright weird.

The temperature dropped from 62* on Monday to somewhere in the 20s Tuesday morning. That brought, of course, thunder, lightning, and ice rain 😳 Heavy icy pellets were bouncing around on the pavement, and accumulated very fast. So what looked like a beautiful blanket of snow was actually a treacherous thick layer of ice.

Tell you what – it’s a good thing I had all those delicious Brownies on Monday. Otherwise I might have skated around instead of breaking the ice πŸ˜‚

But enough talk…here are some pictures. It was actually quite pretty. 😊 Easy to say from the safety of my back yard πŸ˜‰

That’s a lot of ice! The frogs were not amused πŸ˜†

Lorelai is just annoyed 😏

Did you see the pretty icicles hanging from the table?

Here I played with the black-and-white option in the editor 😊

The yard isn’t all that big…so that’s it 😁

Oh, wait… I have this one from a few years ago. This beauty formed between the house and a tree right after a winter storm. Nature truly is amazing, isn’t it!? 😍

I hope you’re warm and safe in your neck of the woods. 😘

Thanks for peeking in. πŸ€— I hope you do so again soon!

Until then πŸ’•

Your ~ Weekend ~ Chuckle πŸ˜Έ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I hope today I can bring you some (much needed) Smiles, Chuckles, maybe even a heartfelt ‘LOL’ 😊

But first an ‘Awwww’ moment 😍 I would like to introduce you to ‘Dixie’ … the latest addition to the giraffe family at the KC Zoo πŸ˜ƒ

Isn’t she just the cutest? 😍 I love that goofy look on her face πŸ˜†


I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! πŸ’• We kept it simple 😜


This kid πŸ˜…


I’m so very happy for them 😍 But the comment cracked me up πŸ˜‚

Alright my Lovelies…that’s all for today. Have a fabulous Sunday!

Hugs πŸ€— and Love πŸ’• to you!

What’s New You Ask? Okay, I’ll Tell Ya πŸ˜

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

How are you on this fine day? And a fine day it is! 🌞 What a difference 40 degrees make! 😜

I already walked the dogs, so I can chat with you without getting interrupted 😍

I hope I won’t bore you too much (or, preferably, not at all 😊) but today’s post is a ‘sorting my thoughts, WIPs, ideas’ kinda deal.

Do you ever have so many things swirling around in your head that you, in the end, don’t do any of them? But instead crochet Granny Squares that have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with anything? Show of hands please πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Yep, this happened last night πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

And since there’s a Meme for everything…😁

But – today’s another day, and, hopefully, this will help me get everything organized! πŸ€“ Thanks for letting me bend your ear! 😘 Ear? Eyes? Hmm…you know what I mean!

So here’s everything in a nutshell…

First some things that actually did get done…

I finished another purse…well, I still have to sew in the lining

Things I learned while making the purse:
1. Pay attention to what you’re doing! Trying to solve a murder alongside “Monk” while crocheting the base, will lead to a tote, not a purse! πŸ˜‹
2. One skein of (gorgeous, beautiful) handspun yarn (72 yards) is just barely enough for 4 rounds! 😳
3. I love the “Bobble Stitch”! 😍

This next one made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside
I made a Puzzle Poncho for my lovely friend Lili

And these are some of the things that are swirling…

The ‘ Puzzle Sweater’ is coming along quite nicely – of course, now that it’s getting warmer πŸ˜…


Since my waist is nowhere near her’s, I will have to finish it away from the Mannequin πŸ˜„

The start of a new poncho…

Last week I came across this   ⬇️ on Facebook.Β I got all swooney, thinking they’re gorgeous Agate slices. Nope – they’re Puzzles. How cool is that?!

And then my ‘Crochet Brain’ kicked in, and I thought “This design would make a beautiful blanket”! Can you see it?
So I got started on that – different ideas came to life


Or maybe a pillow? Or a Purse? I’m still mulling it over.

Aaaand last but not least I now also have to figure out what I’m going to do with the Granny Squares from last night! 😜

Oh….one more thing! Since I even skipped ‘Your Weekend Chuckle’ last weekend – here’s my favorite one! I don’t know why, but it made me laugh ’til I cried


Okay – now I’ll get off my soapbox, and let you carry on with your life!

I’m sending SmilesΒ πŸ™‚ HugsΒ πŸ€— and LoveΒ πŸ’• your way!
