Hello Again

I have been obviously absent for some time. My shoulder and neck pain has required me to limit my time sitting at the computer. What a bummer when the computer has been such an important part of my life.

Luckily my son and dil were expecting in May so during the past winter I taught myself to crochet. I went crochet crazy. It was quite a challenge as reading, comprehending and following a pattern is mind boggling for me. It was a lot of frustration at times but worth every bit. I crocheted baby afghans, an adult size afghan and multiple baby hats. I must admit I am proud of these accomplishments considering my cognitive deficits.

My new grandson, Andrew Logan, was born on April 29, 2011. 7lbs 8oz, 20 in. long, healthy and beautiful. He brings my grandchild total to three. One granddaughter and two grandson's. What blessings each one is to my life.

I am doing fairly well. The summer heat is unbearable for me so my time outside is limited. My pain, spasms and energy level fluctuate daily.

I needed a change and went from long hair to an extremely short hair cut and I love it. So easy to care for.

My back is beginning to hurt so I need to get away from this computer.
Until next time.....


  1. Well, I am certainly impressed. You have crocheted more than I have in less than half the time. And it looks neater, too. Congratulations!

  2. Hi Kelli,
    How lovely to see your post and the pictures of your wonderful crochet work.
    Very nice, your photos maade me want to reach out and touch.
    Hope your back is feeling better.

  3. Wow! Good for you! Those look gorgeous! I so want to learn how to crochet and/or knit, but I have issues with hand/wrist pain so I'm not sure I could do it. But oh, so beautiful!! :) Congrats on your new grandson, and I'm happy to see you post again!
