First and last


A former student of mine is expecting her first baby in June, and she asked me if I could crochet this adorable cow for her. Of course I said yes!

Millie the Cow is the pattern I found on Etsy. The directions are well written and easy to follow. I did make one change. I cross stitched the yes instead of using safety eyes. 

So, why is this the first and last? It took me a month to make, because I could only crochet for a short amount of time. My hands do not like doing this!

Slow progress


I've been making slow progress with round 21 of Renulek's Spring Doily 2024. Ever since my marathon tatting a couple of weeks ago, my right elbow has been very tender. It is getting better, but I'm not taking any chances!

Round 20


I finished round 20 of Renulek's Spring Doily 2024 last night. This round was super simple and really didn't take very long to tat. However, since I did marathon tatting on round 19, I had to take this round very slowly. My elbows were very sore from too much tatting! Luckily, I had some enforced down time.

Daughter Alison graduated with her master's degree in clinical mental health counseling. Granddaughter Eva graduated with her bachelor's degree in worship leadership. I'm very proud of them both!

Round 19


I just finished round 19 of Renulek's Spring Doily 2024. It is now 27" in diameter. So, mine is going to be a bit larger than Renulek's. Round 19 is in size 20 Lizbeth #183 Orange Crush. I think I'll use the Lime Green for round 20... if I have enough!
