Sheli loves crochet

pf1I accidentally made Shelibean a new toy. I call it a puff because it’s soft and puffy. Last night while trying to design some crochet flowers, there was some that I didn’t like. To keep them together to throw away, I started tying them together. By the time I had added the 3rd flower, a cheerful looking flower ball was formed. I decided it’d be a cute toy to give to Sheli, but he was already in bed asleep, so I’d wait until morning to give it to him. I continued on crocheting flowers and two more of them didn’t turn out right, so I added them to the flower ball.
pf2I really like the look of this flower ball. I think it would make a good bath scrubby if it was made of cotton thread.
I gave Sheli the puff this morning. He chewed on it a bit and then snuggled up to it while laying on his favorite afghan, and took a nap.
When he woke up, we played a bit of fetch with it. I guess it passes the muster of Shelibean’s high standards for quality control. 😉

Here’s a photo of Sheli sitting on my Candy-corn afghan when I first made it last summer. He took such a shine to it that he claimed it before it was a 1/4 of the way finished. I crocheted many of the rows while Sheli sat on it and played or napped. I guess he loves the bright colors.

Sunday it was 70° and would have been a really nice day if the wind hadn’t blown so wild and if the sun had of shined. My hubby mowed up the fallen leaves that were scattered across the yard.  Sheli and I tried to sit for awhile on the porch but the wind gusts were too uncomfortable for us.
Last night it was stormy with thunder, lighting, rain and heavy winds. Part of our region got a coating of ice. We were fortunate that we only got a smidgen of snow. It’s in the low 20’s, overcast and colder than all heck.
Was Sunday’s warm temps only 24 hours ago…
3-3-2014-snwWhile searching my old files I opened my folder for last March out of curiosity about the weather then. As it turns out, our cold weather last year was pretty much like it is this year…

Dear Blogging Buddies,
You may remember my 2013 photos from my ex-blog. I hope you all don’t mind my re-posting them. I enjoy sharing them again so my new blogging buddies can see them too. 🙂

This is all for me at the moment.

I hope you all have a pleasant week.

      Welcome to my blog.

      I hope you’ll visit again sometime.


  1. That’s so special that Sheli loves your crocheting! I smiled thinking of him sitting on the afghan as you were crocheting it.
    We had sleet for several hours today, following by several inches of snow. I’ll have a post about it in a couple of days!

      Wow, you all must be so tired of the cold and mess from this winter. Bless your hearts.
      I look forward to your post. Meanwhile, you all be careful, stay warm and hopefully this mean winter will go away soon. 🙂


  2. We had 70s Sunday, cut back the butterfly bush and catmint. It was nice in the sun, but when I took a break to sit in the shade the wind was a bit too chilly. We got a mix of snow and sleet today, windy 20s, also, very cold! The roads appear treacherous. I think Sheli knows he shows up handsomely on the background of candy-corn colors. 🙂

    I think you’re on to something there with Sheli & the colors. I hadn’t thought of that before. Truly Sheli is a vain little ornament and always wants to be seen. lol
    Bless your hearts, you all are having pneumonia weather too. It’s dreadfully frustrating.
    Be careful, stay warm and hopefully warm spring breezes will come and chase mr. winter away. 🙂


    • Thanks Barb
      It makes me happy to give Sheli new toys. I think it makes him feel special when the toy is something I’ve spent time on. I just love our pets making us feel good like that. 🙂

    • Aw You’re so sweet Roma
      Thanks so much for the great compliments. You don’t have to let the g-e-monster get a foot hold because you’re garden is wonderful and I bet it blossoms into a lovely oasis. I do love my porch. It’s like a mini vacation to sit out and watch the world pass by (when the wind and weather behaves.) 🙂


    • Aw Thanks so much Renee
      Sheli is a peach and I’m thankful I’m crafty and can share a bit of love by making things for him. 🙂
