Posting, But NOT Happy!

I think that kinda says it all, Blogger and their hand in my pocket, now monthly. There has to be a better solution. I do thank anyone who offered up suggestions, but this was going to happen sooner or later, might as well just grit my teeth and be done with it. This Sunday morning we woke to a gloomy, rainy day. The day I took these pics was a sunny one about a week ago, so let's see what we have here.....

The city where we travel to 3 times a week for his dialysis is also the city where our 2 daughters went to college, Bowling Green State University, aka BGSU. They are alumni and known as FALCONS. I do not recall this statue of the bird, back when we would make weekend trips back and forth to fetch or deliver the kids.

It sits outside the Stroh Center where the basket ball games are played. President Obama came here the last month of his campaigning.

I think that bird is awesome. It looks like it is swooping down to snatch something to eat, maybe the gal standing there to get her photo taken?

Then later that week we stopped here to get a bite to eat and I looked across the road and saw another photo opportunity, this time another angle of the bird.  

This last photo I managed to get part of the stadium in the right hand side. Now if I had that wide angle lens I have chattered about in past postings.....well Santa might think of me, well maybe.

I know I showed you snippets of this project weeks ago. It was the blanket "wanna be" that turned out to be a lap blanket for a little lady who saw me working on it and wanted to buy it. Here it is all finished up.

A closer look. She loves it, and it did turn out nice and colorful.

So, guess what I am making again......yeah! There is still that yarn stash and now it is looking rather skimpy, but I do NOT want to buy anymore RH yarn. I do love Hobby Lobby ILTY and plan to buy it in the future for other projects.

Here is mine and I am just holding my breath on whether I will have enough to finish it. I did decide that I would give it a border if needed because I have plenty of Vanna yarn left over from other projects. So if I run out of scraps and can't make more blocks I will just add a nice wide border of whatever color I have the most of.

A closer look of my blanket. I'm sorry the lightening was not better. I absolutely hate this time change. It gets dark around 4:30pm and it is no wonder people get depressed during the winter months. 

No, no, this is not the same large granny I showed you weeks ago, this is a second one I just whipped up during the waiting hours while hubby gets his treatments. Four hours is a long time to wait and I just need to keep busy.

Last but not least, this baby granny I have been working on when the mood hits. Once again I apologize for the picture quality. See that tangled mess of yarn, well that is me right now......when I don't keep busy, my mind is often in a tangled mess.

Thank you for patiently waiting on these promised pictures. I just say this, when your life is in some sort of chaos, stay busy and pray. It doesn't leave room for much else. Peace.



  1. Hi Suzanne. I'm really loving your small granny squares blankets - they're very pretty. And your other 2 blankets are pretty too. If you need some scrap yarn for your blanket - let me know (my email is and I will send you some. :)

  2. I agree...that bird IS amazing!! As are your blankets BTW!

  3. I agree with you Suzanne about staying busy and praying, and boy! have you been busy crocheting! It all looks great.

    I love to crochet when I've got things going on in my head, especially when it is straight forward, repetitive designs I dont have to think about. The rhythm is soothing.


  4. I just love all your blankets, they remind me of our grandmas patchwork quilts.. using up the ends of skeins and all. That bird sculpture is amazing!

  5. Susanne, I love all the blankets, I think your next one should be made for your favorite blogging friend, ME!!!!! It is so good to keep busy during all of these stressful appointments. I am sure the yarn in your hands gives you peace. Love the shots of the bird.
