Can it be a week already?

Oh my...just where did this week disappear to? Have I been that busy.... or just lazy. I did work on the Alphabet doll .....a little. I also worked up one of the crocheted beads and flower designs...
I learned to crochet when I was just around 7 years old. My dear Aunti Lucy taught me. I did quite a bit of that for some time then let it go for other crafts. This book surely has me wanting more.  Gee, can't remember the last time I had a size 10 metal crochet hook in my hands. I just grabbed the first pink beads I saw...should have been a darker shade, but I like it anyway. I can see more crocheted edging for finishes.... for now, I think I will continue to do samples and then I will know what they look like for a project.  By the way, Esther did it again. She forced me to buy another book. Guess I should not have told her about the new bookcase. More about that book later.
We finally had some rain last night...the first since December I think. It has been so long that I really do not remember. The garden looks happy even though the sun is hiding up in the sky someplace. Mr H will not have to water plants today. I hope the rain does end by tomorrow. Mr H wanted to go to a garden tour in the Phoenix area.....
It was so nice to see you again...a week has been too long. I promise to not stay away so long again. Thank you for stopping by.  Whatever your plans are for the weekend, I hope you have a wonderful time.
