About Me

I am a knitter and crocheter and love to design when I get a chance. I am known as the crazy cat lady with 3 dogs. I am a mother to 3 of my own and step-mother to several. I am also a grandmother.

Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

An Health Update.....

Okay...last Wednesday I posted a cryptic status on Facebook, (link will only work for those who are on friend list) regarding a doctor's visit.  I needed time to process the information and to talk with close family and friends before posting the information.  Some of you know that I have been battling kidney disease for a number of years and in fact had a nephrectomy (kidney removal) 11 yrs ago.  I have been monitored for a number of years by a specialist and my GP.  Well for some reason, not sure why and we could speculate all we want, however back in 2007 my kidney was function between 50 and 75% (depended on blood pressure).  My kidney is now functioning at 16%.  I am looking at dialysis in a matter of months, not years as well as looking at a transplant in years as opposed to decades. 

I appreciate everyone giving me the space that both of us needed in order to deal with the initial shock of this latest news.  I now know why I have been so tired and unable to deal with a whole lot.  I, again, am asking for some patience and understanding as we make decisions as to treatment and how to proceed.  We need all the support we can get through this.

I know it never rains but pours...thank you again.
