Crochet anybody?

I've had several hobbies thru the years, one of them being Crochet!  I really got into it at one point, even made my own patterns and was involved in several exchange groups online!  I really enjoyed doing that, but as time went on, I picked up scrapbooking again, and haven't done much crocheting in a long long time.  Honestly, It's probaby got something to do with the fact that I worked the yarn and hook in Colorado, where it's not 110 heat index in the summer!  I just can't stand to have that heavy yarn on my lap in this Texas Heat!!!

Anyway, I have a Crochet web site.  Dayna's Crochet  And, from time to time, I get emails from people who either have a comment on my awesome free patterns or a correction that should have been made.  :)

I was pleased as punch when someone asked me a question about a pattern because they were making a sweater out of one of my squares.  I unfortunately was NO help to her at all, but she made the sweater anyway and shared the pictures!

Her name is Doris P. and she's from Bailey, Colorado and here is her work of art with one of my motifs!

And, my original pattern link Star Flower Granny and picture

 Thank you Doris for sharing your work!!!  Looks AWESOME!

I LOVE Mac N Cheese

One of my favorite meals in the world is Mac N Cheese.  No, nothing else with it, just Mac N Cheese!  My sister would agree with me, every time she thinks of the blue box, she thinks of me!  My Husband knows this too, and he's even been known to enjoy a box with some hotdogs cut up in it!  :)  Jake's gonna LOVE us for that one!  By the way, my world WAS rocked at some point when my sweet mother made us Mac Casserole, and she completey ruined my taste for the best meal ever for several days...she put TUNA in the MAC N CHEESE!!?!??!  YUCK!

So, you can imagine my excitement when I was at the store looking for yummy new food for Jake, and I came across the best site EVER! 

YES!  Baby food Mac N Cheese!!!  I couldn't wait to give it to Jake, just hoping he would LOVE IT!

Nothing better for dinner than Beef and MacNCheese!

And, wouldn't you know it....HE ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT!!!!

All I have to say is
That's My Boy!
