Good morning all

well , we have two new furbabies in the family.They are a male and female chihuahua's.coco the male is four years old and the female Febe is three.

coco is a full size chi and Febe is a tea cup.We just got them on thursday.

We hadn't intended to go looking for a new dog or anything as we are still getting over the loss of our beloved chico.Whom we still miss and think of each and every day.

But my sister Joy (Thanks sis :) ) saw an ad on craigs list about three chihuahua's .

She called me and sent me the link.I wasn't even going to look at it.But for some reason,maybe just curiosity,i did.They were adorable and i started to read about them.You could hear the agony in the woman's heart just by reading the ad .She was going through a divorce and was having to give them up due to a move where she couldn't have them.

She was going to have them put down if she couldn't find a good loving home for them.

as she would rather do that ,then the thought of having them go to a shelter and being cooped up in a cage til god knows when.

I really felt for her.I talked to paul about it and we decided to call her about them.

when we first called her she said they all had to go together .I just couldn't imagine three dogs.Especially with my health the way it is.

We thought about it and decided to meet them and her and go from there.We decided there was no harm in checking them out.

By the time we did go meet them . she had found a place where she could take one of them . so she did keep one.I fell in love with these two.Didn't mean to , just happened that way.

The rest is history!

The little one is such a little baby,she wants to be carried EVERYWHERE! LOL

coco is soooo protective of me and doesn't tolerate very easily many men and especially around me.though suprisingly he took to paul instantly.

well here's a picture of them, i want to get some more soon and i will post them when i do.

crochet hugs,



Good morning all,
I have decided to reduce the price for some of the yarn.I really need to sell these as i need to get my prescriptions as i am almost out! I also have medical bills stacking up .
so here goes:
1.The baby coridinates sweet stripes yarns are all 1.50 a skein each.
2.For the caron pounder i would be willing to take 3.50
3.for the "jenny " baby yarn i would take 2.50 a skein
4.for the PomPom kits i would take 2.50 a kit
5.for the mint pound of love yarn i would take 3.50
6.for the pink pound of love i would take 2.50 for it
7.for the red heart skeins of multi color blue or purple i would take 1.00 a skein
8.The lion brand kit is sold
9.for the lot of crochet thread i will take 30.00 for the whole lot.

*just a note about payment,i will except Postal money orders or , if you would rather, you could pay me by moneygram and i will take off the small fee they would charge you from the price of the yarn.
Thank you.

Update More yarn added for sale!

Good morning Friends and Family-
I hope this finds every one well.As i had promised ,I have more yarn for sale to list today.As a reminder the other two lots are still available.(Christmas yarn and the baby yarn.) I will consider on those two lots also REASONABLE OFFERS.Please try to remember that i am not trying to get rich here.I am only trying to pay for some medical bills and my presciptions.This being said , i can't afford to "give " these items away,nor can i afford to ship these items for free as much as i would like to.* a note about the shipping.

Since my scale is not working at home and i just can't afford another one,plus it's easier on me than trying to run all over the place to try and find box's i am going to be shipping all of these items priority mail.I will try of course to fit them in the smallest box's as possible to cut down on costs and where ever possible for the bigger lots i will try to fit everything in flat rate shipping box's as this really is the cheapest way to go even more so allot of the times than parcel post.Plus this time of the year parcel post can take forever.The post office has informed me that they no longer just ship out parcel post right away, they wait until they have a truck load to ship them out as they say the prices of gas is the reason for this.but they told me they don't do that for priority mail.IF you have any questions or are interested in the yarn please either leave me a comment (i get a notice in my email ) or simply email me at : baby_girl33@sbcglobal.net

as the yarn sells i will list even more.I still have ton's to list.but it takes allot of time and wears me out allot ,so i am taking it little at a time,if there is something you are looking for in particular let me know.I might have it.

OK so here we go there is quite a bit here;here is the first lot we have up for sale;
This lot has four skeins and is called "Bernat Baby Coordinates The color is called sailor stripes.It is blue and white stripes.very cute baby yarn.would like 2.50 a skien for these or will consider REASONABLE offers for this lot.

This second lot is the same type of yarn and there is 7 skeins of this color which is called sprite stripes which is a lime green and white. 2.50 a skien for these or will consider REASONABLE offers for this lot.

Again this is the same type of yarn ,but in a pretty purple and white color.There are 4 skeins plus a skein that was wound into a ball but none of the yarn was ever used. 2.50 a skien for these or will consider REASONABLE offers for this lot.
This next lot is a mixed lot of mainly "balls" of baby yarn though there are three skeins of yarn also.Here is what it consists of :8 white baby balls of yarn that i believe are the pompadour type of yarn i believe these are if not full skeins they are pretty close,then we have 3 small pink balls,1 skein of pink yarn this is a large skein pretty sure its a full skein.no wrapper.Then i have a skein of red heart 2oz (3) ply baby pompador st pink says color 722 lt. pink ,then we have a partial bright peach skein probally 3/4 of a skein,and lastly a very small skein of lt.blue probally good for those who like to use scrap yarn.Make me a REASONABLE OFFER on this lot.

Next i have a caron pounder skein new still in the original wrapper and celophane.The color is "taupe'

This is another small mixed lot.I hope with the holidays coming up some one can use this lot.Here's what is included; 1 red heart 3.5 oz "holidy" yrn black with gold this is a full new skein.very hard to find this yarn any more.works up very pretty.
next,a ball of green with silver running through it,small skein ,plus a small ball of tan with gold running through it ,small skein of greens,tans, reds with gold ,plus 2 small balls of bright red with silverrunning through it,1 small skein and a small ball of dark burgandy red with gold in it.
Make me a REASONABLE OFFER on this lot.

This lot is yarn bee "frosting" in the color Creme plus. their are 5 new skeins in this lot.This is a really yummy soft yarn.The colors are a creme,various purples and pinks.3.00 a skein or will consider REASONABLE OFFERS for the lot.

This lot is for more baby yarn,this is called "jamie" Their are 3 full skeins and 1/2 skein in this lot.will take 3.00 for this lot

This lot is for two full skeins of christmas yarn.They are new in the wrapper.They are "mill ends" and weigh a pound acording to the bag.will take 3.00 for this lot

This lot of baby yarn contains 14 skeins of patons "jenny yarn " its hard to tell from the picture but it's white in color.Their is also 1 skein of patons country life brand chunky cotten blend yarn.This is a hard to find yarn as it has been discontinued for quite some time i'm told.would like 3.50 a skein or will consider REASONALBE OFFERS for the whole lot.
This next lot if for 8 Pom Pom "passion" scarf sets.These sets include everything to make a pompom scarf with,but i used them to sew onto the tops of newborn hats for a hospital.They were the perfect size.Great for alot of diffrent projects.
4.00 each kit.Or will consider REASONABLE offers for the lot of them.

This is 1 new skein of "pound of love baby yarn by lion brand.The color is a mint green.would like 5.00 for this as i paid 9.99 for it.

This is also a pound of love by lion brand skein of yarn.It is new and unused, but was taken out of the wrapper as that is how it was bought.It is a light pink.
Since this one has no wrapper i would be willing to take 4.00 for it.

This lot is for the red heart "multi colors" in shades of blue.There are 4 new skeins in this lot.1.50 a skein for these

This is the same type of yarn as above only there are 3 new skeins of this color which is called shades of purple.1.50 a skein for these

This is a brand new kit still in original gift box with cellophane.This is a lion brand crochet baby gift set.This set contains:2 balls of lion brand "wool-ease' yarn,fully illustrated instructions to make the set,50 pattern cards, and 5 crochet hooks!The yarn is enough to make the baby sweater set.Really nice gift for the holidays.I would like 12.00 for this kit.i paid 25.00 for it.

This is an absolutely HUGE lot of crochet thread, (thought it is hard to see that from the picture) and what i would call very thin twine type of thread.There is 8 partially used cones of the "twine" and their are 58 various colors and thickness of crochet thread! These didn't belong to me , these were my grandmothers.I have never used this crochet thread as my arthritis in my hands would never allow for me to learn how to use it.The majority of the "cones" are new , alot of them are still in their celophanes etc.There are several diffrent colors including verigated colors.
I don't know all of the names or thickness of them though .I wouldn't know how to figure that out.Though some do have labels i just don't know what they mean.I don't know which is yardage and what is thickness on allot of them .Yes there are partial cones ,but as i said most of them are full or mostly full .

The cones are also in varying sizes from very small to very big.some are very soft too.I tried to look some of them up to find out what they sell for , but most have been discontinued for years and the newer ones that are still available go for between 1.50 and 4.00 for some of the bigger ones.So i am am going to have to rely on some of you ladies out there who use crochet threads to fill me in on what is a REASONABLE price for these.would love to sell them as one lot to get rid of them , but i guess if you are looking for something in particular i could sell them individually too.so Make a REASONABLE offer for them.either individually or as a lot.

yarn for sale

As promised here are a couple of lots of yarn i have for sale.I will be listing more in the next few days.I didn't know my scale isn't working ,so i didn't want to list a bunch more til i get another one.Though i think that the flat rate postal box's would be the way to go any ways rather than parcel post.I don't really think there is going to be much price difference, and you can fit allot of yarn in the flat rate box's.I will only be shipping through the post office.I can only accept postal money orders also.NO paypal or checks please.
Here is the first lot:
.baby bee Dreamy baby chenille yarn very soft and yummy!
These are 3.5 oz skeins.Though there are 4 skeins, and 3 that are already wrapped in balls though as far as i can tell the balls have never been used. 6.00 each or i would like 20.00 plus shipping for this lot.

here is the second lot:16 skeins of "red heart super saver Multicolor christmas yarn. says "0983 christmas" acrylic red white and green yarn. would really like to sell it as a lot for 40.00 plus shipping some of the wrappers fell off.

The loss of our little Chico

On Tuesday we had to put our little fur baby Chico to sleep.To say that it broke my heart is putting it mildly.He was more than just a little dog to me . He was my little compainion,my little friend.He was the most dedicated little guy i have ever seen.For everything he endured before he came to us was unbelievable.Yet the minute we adopted him and brought him home he acted as though he had been with us since he was a puppy.We adopted him from a chihuahua rescue society about eight years ago when i had first started to become very ill with my aorta.

He had come from one of the most horrific puppy mills i had ever heard of . The things they did to these poor little animals is not just criminal it was inhumane and unthinkable.They had not only beat these little guys, they didn't even feed them properly the dogs had to fight to eat what ever pigs on the farm would let them get.

They told us at the society that they took cow prods to the females to make them breed.It made them so vicious the females all had to be put down.
My little guy came to us with dislocated hips,his knees were poped out of the sockets,he had old fractures all over .

Yet even though he endured all of this he was so sweet and never was never the type who would just be snippy for no good reason like so many of them are.He rarely barked unless of course someone came to the door or if he thought some-one was trying to do something to me.

He always knew when i was not well.He would come and either lay in my lap or right next to my side and would not budge for anything or any one.and he never wanted any one to bother me if i was ill.
I have allot of health problems as most of you already know.And one of them is epilepsy.
That poor little guy had no idea what the seizures were , only that something was very wrong and not only did always try to alert me ahead of time that they were coming , but he would really flip out when they were happening because of course my family would need to help me to make sure i was ok and he didn't know allot of the time if they were trying to help or hurt me so he would get so freaked out that some of the time my family would either have to put him in another room or put him in his kennel.

The reason he was put down was because he had gotten his whole leg ligament torn from the middle of his thigh all the way to his little knee.
But we also found out that he had diabetes (though that was mild) He had a severe infection some where in his little body though the doctor wasn't sure where.
He thinks he had cancer , and possibly bone cancer.
He stopped eating for days and couldn't walk , he even stopped going to the bathroom at all for almost a week.
Though i knew it was the right thing to do , as i couldn't stand to hear him whimper in pain.It still was one of the hardest things i have ever had to do in my life.
I just wish there was something more i could have done for him.
He will forever be in our thoughts and hearts.
I love you forever my little one....

Behind again.. Ugh

I know i am really behind again on my posts.I have been pretty busy lately .Not with just life in general,but trying to get the "small " projects finished,but now i am trying to figure out what i am going to be doing for the upcoming holidays.I don't want to try large complicated projects like last year as i ran out of time and most of the family didn't get there gifts.I felt so badly about that.

I also have been trying to still sort through my entire stash.Not just yarn , but magazines,hooks , pattern books etc etc.Most of it is going to need to go to pay off some medical bills.I am in dire need of money to pay them and for some of my monthly prescriptions that my insurance company no longer will pay.I also have a very important test i have to have and for whatever reason my health insurance won't pay for it.It's really sad the way health insurance is now a days.To think some one sits behind a desk that has no medical training what so ever is making life or death decisions for people.
It's not even like i have an HMO or anything.Then i might even understand it.
It's terrible to think of all the money it costs to have this insurance only to have them continually cut every thing back and deny , deny , deny.

I should have some of the pictures posted by the end of the day of the yarn , patterns etc.Most likely won't have it all posted since there is ALLOT to be posted.But i will do my best to get as much posted as i can .I PROMISE LOL.
I also have some finished projects to post their pictures too.

Again, IF anyone is interested in buying any of the yarn etc.You can contact me one of two ways to let me know. Either email at baby_girl33@sbcglobal.net
or you can simply just leave me a comment on this post and i will get your message.If you choose to email me, please put in the subject line , yarn for sale.
To the Lady who has already contacted me about the baby yarn, could you please email me again, i accidently deleted the email.sorry.

Just wanted to update my blog today , as i know it has been awhile again. Some news for those who know my son Danny .He and His Fiance Krista decided to move home with us for awhile :)
So Jimmy and i took the Drive down to WV to get them and bring them back.They have been home for a bit over a month now.It's been hard on Krista though.I know she says she likes it here,but it shows that she is still pretty home sick too.Which is understandable.

Well still working on finishing various projects.I finally got a few pics taken of some of the projects i have been working on such as the baby blanket that i came up with my own design for the trim that i had been wanting but couldn't find a pattern for.So i used a combination of single crochet and double crochet.
Still can't find allot of the knifty Knitter patterns to help me make some blankets on the new long looms.I have made a few baby hats with the round looms but some of them never turn out.cant quite figure out what i am doing wrong .I know it has something to do with that piece of yarn that you attach to the outside peg to hold the yarn while you are working.

I have even been trying to teach Krista crochet.She really is picking it up fast.She picked up the single crochet right away the first time i showed her.Danny is talking about picking crochet back up too.I would really like that.someone to share my love of crochet.

I need to seriously de-stash some of the yarn i have.so if any one is interested let me know.I also plan to post pics of the skeins i am going to sell.I don't know how to do paypal so it would have to be money orders.But I have lots of nice yarn such as baby yarns , lion brand,etc i even have partial skeins for those of you who like the "scrap " yarns I also think i am going to get rid of some of my pattern and magizine books as i will never make some of the things in them.I have alot of clothing ones that i have just never been interested in.Doilys ,etc etc.You can contact me through here by leaving a comment or just email me at baby_girl33@sbcglobal.net
just put in the header Yarn for sale.Let me know what it is you are looking for and i will let you know if i have it.Otherwise like i said i will be posting more in the next day or two once i start going through it.I will also be listing it on crochetville.org for those who go there.
well take care everyone and
Love and crochet hugs to all

Some things i've been up to

Well all ,
As i said in my previous post,i have had allot going on in the last few months both physically and in general.So although i would have liked to get some more large projects done i just haven't been up to it much.That's not to say that i didn't get anything done. I have finished a couple of the larger projects like my nieces Christmas present from last year.YUP that's right i said LAST year.I feel so bad that it took me so long to get it done.I swear they are all getting gift certificates for Christmas this year LOL.

I also finished a couple of baby blankets and sent them out to the charities that i belong to.Though i haven't made any new blankets in awhile for them.I instead have been trying to learn to use the new knifty knitter looms to make baby hats .I also bought myself the long knifty knitter looms that you use to make blankets and such with hoping that maybe it would not only go faster,but easier for me to learn and master the steps.

As i am still a new crocheter and am still having allot of problems learning the craft all on my own. For instance the Raggedy Ann and Andy afghan kit i bought.I got so frustrated with the fact that i couldn't figure out how to do the color changes i put it down up until the other day and i am just now trying to tackle it again . I had to rip the whole thing out it looked terrible.

Though i only have a few rows done it does look better this time around.I started watching knit and crochet today or something like that . It 's the crochet show on t.v. with the lady that plays "Blair" on one of the day time soaps.

That did help quite a bit.It's more the learning to try to maneuver the yarn to do what it is i need it to do.LOL.
I also finished the loofahs and the wash cloth's i wanted to do.Though i must say that i am not too impressed with the loofah's .In fact i ended up throwing mine out.I don't know if it's just how hard our water is which wouldn't surprise me but the thing never seamed to lather up nice nor did it ever want to get dry .It just wound up getting all yucky.So i just finally threw it out.

I have to get my boyfriend to take some pics of the finished projects i do have done and when i get some more done to at least the point you can tell what they are I'll have him take pictures of them too. My camera though better at taking pics finally died on me a couple of months ago.Well off to bed it is for me now.This is the most excitement i have had in months so I'm pooped out LOL

Hugs and Crochet Kisses to all,

We now return to our regular scheduled program LOL

Hello to all of my family,friends ,and dedicated blog readers.I apologize for my lengthy time away from my blog.I have had allot going on the last few months since my last entry.I have had allot of physical problems as well as life's general ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. I got an infection in my Medi-port awhile back and had to have that removed,and a P.I.C.C. line in to take care of that.Boy that was no fun to take care of the wound, and the daily anti-biotics i would have to adminster, not to mention having to have some one wrap my arm all up in saran wrap just to have a shower.

I'm glad that is over with now i just got the picc line out about a week ago now.Now i just have to wait for the wound to finish healing so i can have yet another Medi-port put back in for my infusion treatments.

My infusion treatments have been moved up not only by how often i get them too but also by the milligrams too . Boy let me tell ya i thought it made me sick before.It really KICKED my little behind with the new dose.But i just take it day by day.

Though there has been allot of negative things going on in life lately,that's not to say that nothing good has been going on either though. MY son who turned 18 back in Dec moved out of his dad's house (thank god!) and I couldn't be happier that for one he is away from his dad's negative behavior ,but also that he no longer has to endure some of things he was going through.,
Danny also has met a young lady that he plans to marry in the winter.I have never met her, and though i am worried that maybe they are rushing things i am happy for him that he is happy.

I am also happy and proud of Danny that he has become so responsible and so "grown up" gosh i feel so old some days! LOL He is not only working but went out and rented a nice town house.He is working very hard to get as much as he can "on his own"

I am hoping to be up to going down to see him at Christmas .But like i told him that's a long way off so i will have to see how things are by then.

Well it feels good to be back .While it may not be possible for me to journal everyday i hope to be able to get in here and write and update all of you allot more often.

Hugs and Crochet Kisses to all!
