I’m In The Pink…& White, & Blue & Green & Yellow

   Hello all you bloggers out there. I have not been writing for a little while once again. I so enjoy reading all of yours though and sometimes worry about those that are not blogging. I am such a worry wart!!…is that a word? Anyway…it’s been a good week and my hubby and I are on a semi-vacation this coming week. Does that mean that we don’t have to work?…NOT…just not so much. It’s a gorgeous day here in Maine. The temperature is around 60 and the sky is the prettiest color of blue you could ever imagine. But yet all of us folks are inside today! I have a homemade spaghetti sauce on a long simmer. Hubby is doing computer work in his office. Baby (our black cat) is napping on our bed.Baby That’s her peeking out on the deck when she was a little (baby). Obie is hiding under hubbies desk in his office because one of our neighbors is doing some kind of target shooting! Obie HATES guns!! It scares him to death. Poor little guy shakes all over. If this was not happening, he would be napping too.obiebed2 And I am crocheting whenever I get a minute. I got the idea from another blogger. Here site is: http://mysewingserenity.blogspot.com/ …..if you scroll down to her April 6 post you will see what she calls her Doggy Bag. I followed her instructions the best I could and they are wonderful instructions! It’s me that needs training! I would have loved to have used the type of yarn she used….the colors are magnificent and as you will see just gorgeous….but I ended up using what I have. What I have are some soft pastel colors more for a baby blanket but this is my trial run to see if I can follow her pattern. I am new at this so it makes sense to me. Her bag is so beautiful and very creative. Mine is in the beginning stages….just starting to crochet up the sides so it barely looks like a bag. Well here….let me show you…pink1 I am using blue, yellow, pale green, white……pink2 and a soft pink. That is the only yarn I had that was the same and I wanted it to be consistent because I am NEVER….consistent! Working on that.:)pink3 The bag is small still, but taking shape.pink4 It’s kind of cute even though I like her colors better.pink5 That’s the outside bottom but will be the inside bottom eventually….at least I think that is what she meant to do? pink6 Not perfect but kind of fun. Well….that’s what I have been up to. Oops….I hear hubby coming and I’ll bet the smell of that sauce is bringing him down out of his cave. It’s pretty late in the afternoon and I am getting hungry for some pasta and sauce and salad. Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. I do plan on adding more of the music fest pictures when I get them sorted out. Some folks will not want their pictures on the blogs so I have to be careful. Have a great day now. Thank you all for stopping by. I love reading your comments and checking out your interesting blogs. You are all so creative…..I am taken back by it all.                                                                                                                                020    Gbutterfly

Hi Debbie...
I am playing catch up today..
I visited your husband, Bob's blog..and he had a beautiful start. I wonder why he stopped writing? He was excellent at it.
Your bag is going to be adorable. :)
We are all inside today too. Gorgeous out here also. I did take a little nap in the lawn swing. NICE!
Take care, Debbie. I cannot wait to see how it looks all finished.
Mona
P.S. I think I smell spaghetti... :)

Sounds like you guys are having a nice, relaxing day. I'm also trying to play catchup in blogland as I was doing yard work for a couple of days and got way behind. You have a restful semi-vacation too.

Nice job on your crochet bag - It'll be very attractive when you're done working on it. I love the photo of Obie; he's so cute. Spaghetti sauce? Now that's one of your specialties as are your blogs!
Good blod, good pictures, good lady ...
Love, GeeGee

Your bag is coming along nicely. Kids are also on vacation this week but guess what? Hubby drove the crankshaft thru the motor of the tiller so big kid guy and his friend helped turn the garden by hand! I think tomorrow we will rent.
Isn't it nice to meet in blogland, so many creative ideas and different styles, I've learned alot!
Hope you enjoyed your spaghetti, I love it but the big boys need meat and tater! I get every once in a while, not often enough. Happy Monday.

I, too, feel connected to many of those I have met here in the "Blogs'. I enjoy the ideas, stories, achievements, and lessons learned. Sharing in the successes and the support in the sad times. I just love the colors of the bag you are making. I can't crochet...just could never get the hang of it. I can't wait to see it finsihed. Hope your week is off to a fantastic start! Hugs, Kathleen

GS....glad to know someone else has to play catch up in blogland! I guess I think of you guys as super women some how. You aren't?
Senior Bean....Oh I know you and EYES thing...don't go there!!
GeeGee...What can I say! I love you my friend!
Dawn...Oh no!! Hubby did a boo-boo!! That's too bad but glad you Got-er-done! Oh Dawn...my spaghetti sauce is meat and potatoes worthy! It has 2 lbs. of pork ribs, 1 1b. of sausage, and a lb. of ground beef! Also had a bit of leftover grilled steak. I think your "guys" would like it. My guy is a big meat eater too!
Kathleen...I agree my friend with everything you said! Oh of course you can crochet!! If I can do it...trust me!...you can and I am not very good at it! My mother in law is..but not me! It's more relaxing than anything. I am still learning...everything!

Your pets are so cute. I'm jealous of your crocheting skills. Very nice.

Hi, Debbie! I don't have an email address for you, so I couldn't send you the info on the Giveaway Carnival. It starts on Monday, so there is still time to be part of it. Please email me at e_bogardus@hotmail.com, then I can send you all of the pertinent info. Sorry for not replying in a more timely manner, I just got your comment today.

I think your crochet bag is looking great! I am about to start another one. My daughter claimed the other one. I want to make a smaller version for myself. Have a great day, Debbie!
