Whatcha Working on Wednesday

I hope everyone had a great Wednesday! Mine was o.k., busy day at work, then I had to stop by the grocery store, got home and put away the groceries, fixed a quick supper (sausage and eggs per hubby's request!) and needless to say, I am feeling a bit worn down this evening! But that is not unusual for me at midweek. Thank goodness there's only two more work days to go before the weekend! Woohoo!

Now for the Whatcha Working on Wednesday stuff. As always, I'd like to thank Leslie at My Country Home for hosting this every week. There are a lot of talented ladies who post links so be sure to jump over there and check them all out! As most of you know, I have been working on the stuff for my giveaway for most of last week and the first part of this week. If you haven't already signed up for my giveaway, what are you waiting for??? LOL!! Here's a pic of what I have to offer:

In addition to those things, I also made a trio of smaller heart bowl fillers out of some of the red and white ticking I had left over. I put some buttons and rusty jingle bells on these. I am contemplating adding a rusty safety pin and a round hang tag as well. What do you think?

And finally, hubby asked me to crochet a scarf for his Dad. My father-in-law turned 80 years old this year and is not in the best health. With all this cold weather we have been having, he's been a virtual shut in. He does have to get out to go to doctor's appointments and things like that and he is not supposed to breathe in a lot of the cold air per doctor's orders. I crocheted him an afghan for Christmas and he absolutely loved it so hubby thought it'd be a wonderful idea to crochet him his own special scarf. I ageed and off to work I went. I just got it started last night after work so I don't have a lot of progress to show you. Hubby requested that I make it wider than the average scarf so Dad can cover his mouth and nose and still keep it wrapped around his neck as well. Here's a pic of what I have so far and I will post another one when I get it finished:

Well, friends, that's about it for me. This girl is tuckered out and ready for bed and it's not even 7:30 p.m. yet! How sad is that????

Until next time. . .


  1. I like the hearts just as they are! Very cute. I haven't crocheted in years.....maybe I need to pick that up again.
