Well, we are getting ready to leave again. Went back to Mama's last weekend. She said she would feel better if we were there with her. Still not real steady and having more tests this week. Haven't had time to post this week due to getting ready for this trip. We are going to Myrtle Beach for a week. I promise to get caught up with everything I've been crocheting and have pictures of items and pictures of the trip after we get back. Byeeee...

Got home from Mama's yesterday. Her surgery went really well and she is doing fine! I stayed with her to be sure she was okay and did the cooking for her (and anything else she needed done). I took her to get her hair done Friday and to get some groceries because she is not allowed to drive yet. We watched some reruns of "Reba" and loved them! Neither of us had seen the show so we really enjoyed these. So much so, that I am getting the DVDs of the complete seasons. I found seasons 1, 3, and 4 at Walmart today. Barnes and Noble has the other 2 seasons in stock on line (at 50% off!) so I'll probably just order them there. And the last season will be available at the end of June.

Got a good bit of crocheting done while there...I made 3 more angel wing shawls; one in hot rose, one in periwinkle, and one in peacock ILTY.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to the doctor for my annual visit and get my meds renewed. After that I plan on getting my hair cut. It sure needs it! Plus I need to go to AAA to get the Triptik for our trip to Myrtle Beach. Getting close now---we leave May 29!

Updates with some photos finally

I have been busy crocheting away. Since my last post I have made 2 large potholders and 3 hotpads in double weight cotton in blue swirls, 2 fold on itself potholders, 8 more small round dishcloths, plastic bag keeper bag in peppercorn ombre, 12 coasters, 2 tawashi flowers, 4 more market bags ( 1 in blue swirls, 1 in peppercorn, 1 in blue variegated, 1 in yellow daisy), and another red angel wings shawl. Wheww!

And, as promised, here are some photos.
First, some of the market bags.

These are in yellow daisy and peppercorn ombre Peaches and Creme.

I will be off line for the next few days. Mama is having surgery tomorrow morning early so we are going to her house this evening and I will probably stay with her until Saturday. She has no internet so I'll have a lot catch up on when I get home! I'm taking bunches of yarn and projects to work on while there, though. So I'll try to update when I get home!
