Celebrating and more crochet

I know it has been a long time since I have blogged but I have been busy, busy. I still have company and will have until Wed evening and then we are leaving early Thursday morning for San Diego and will be back on Sunday.

Well Nick and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on Saturday. He took me to a real fancy place for dinner so I had to get all gussied up. I am going to post a photo of us from this past Saturday and also one from 2 years ago at his folks 50th wedding anniversary party. This will show how much weight we both have lost. I know that my readers have been curious so it is time for me to reveal ourselves. Here goes....... BEFORE 4/21/06



And Now 6/28/08



There you have it folks. Between the both of us we have lost over 250 pounds. :)

Now for some crochet. Here is a jacket and hat that I made out of the new Red Heart Zoomy, which I have fallen in love with. It is so soft!!.


Right now I am working on a Lace Up Baby Afghan that I know is going to be beautiful. It is done in strips and you have loops on the end of the strips and then you weave the strips together with the loops to puts it together. I can't wait to finish it and share with you. It seems to be taking me a long time as the loops are slow going and sometimes annoying. :) I hope this is all making sense. LOL

I will close for now and thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for my hubby ( He is doing so much better, just a little back pain left). We sure were blessed and I know that your prayers helped so much. Thank you again!!
