Starting the day off right

I really am enjoying crocheting these little spool pin doilies for Mom! I make one while drinking my morning coffee, and then I pick up my crochet hook throughout the day and do a little bit here and a little bit there. I actually completed one of these yesterday, and I was close to finishing another. The second one didn't get finished last night, because my wrist just wouldn't cooperate. I can't sit and crochet for long periods of time as I used to. It's a good thing I have varied interests!

Daughter Carol was at the Cubs game today, so I sat and watched it on t.v. I didn't spot her this time. However, I did manage to finish the first edge of my hanky!

Our mail lady was much later than usual today. As it turns out, her truck broke down while she was on deliveries, and she had to be rescued. I'm glad she was able to finish her deliveries today, because my newest shuttle from Rita Richmond of Shuttle by Design was in the mail! Isn't it a beauty?

When the Cubs game was over, I sat down to read for a little bit. I'm only two chapters in, but the book seems like it's going to be a good one!

While looking for something else, I found my pin backs. I sewed them on to my dark green lucky pennies, but the lighter green will have to wait. I can't find the thread!
