Spring is here

Spring is finally coming to the Pacific Northwest and even though we are getting our spring showers with it we have flowers blooming all over. It is really a wonderful thing to see the changing of the seasons especially though a childs eye. My daughter has become quite the photographer and her pictures of the changing of the season thru her eyes is quite interesting. She is a fourteen year old that is also blossoming and coming into her own. She now has a boyfriend and you will see a couple of pictures of him. His name is Tracy and is a very nice young man. These pictures were taken at the park on one of our clear days and besides taking pictures of each other she took pictures of the world around her. So here are some pictures she has taken and I hope you all enjoy them as we have.

A few things I've crocheted in the past few months

I was given permission to post some pictures of a couple of tested projects. My friend Kathy has become quite the designer and I've had the privilage of testing for her. While doing this I have learned so much from her. She has encouraged and helped me to go beyond what I thought my skills were in crocheting and I would like to acknowledge that fact.
I have done a shawl and a couple of doilies for her. The rest is some patterns that I have always wanted to do but thought I wasn't capable of doing.
Well other than working and crocheting not much else has been happening. I know pretty boring but having a happy home life and enjoying my craft is much more fun to me than all the craziness in the world.
Well here are the latest crochet creations.
