Midweek With Marion

Hello, Dear Ones. I have another little crocheted dress to show you today and of course our model, Marion, is wearing it to the nines!
 Just a little straight dress with variegated yarn and a flounce at the hem.
 Like I said before, sometimes the patterns are either too big or too small. In this case the neck was just too wide even when I used a smaller hook. So...what to do? I just gathered up the neck and tied it with a little bow and hopefully it looks like it was meant to be this way.
 Here's the little flounce or soft ruffle at the hem.



Here's the back which I think looks cute too. The buttons are from my little mother's button jar.
Every nice outfit needs matching shoes. So here are some little Mary Janes. I love making these, so easy and the pattern for all of these little outfits are on Pinterest. 

Thanks for always popping in to see me. I go to the doctor tomorrow so say a little prayer for me. I've had a few problems: getting off the powerful pain meds really has done a number on me. I've been in the house for 3 weeks and got out in the car yesterday and almost had a panic attack wanting to get back home. I'm not a wimp but feel like one now. I just need to vent a little bit. My emotions are so tender and I cry at the drop of a hat. I hate that. It's still scary going downstairs and it takes me about 10 minutes to get in the car. I'm still in the immobilizer and maybe will be able to take it off if the doctor says I can. That's scary too since I feel like the immobilizer is my crutch, keeping my leg straight. Forgive me, I don't like to bring doom and gloom but happiness to my blog, but sometimes I just have to confess ~ I'm human! :) Love to you all.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Songs ~

Love Is Blue

 Blue, blue
My world is blue
Blue is my world
Now I'm without you

Gray, gray my
Life is gray
Cold is my heart
Since you went away

Red, red
My eyes are red
Crying for you
Alone in my bed

Green, green
My jealous heart
I doubted you
And now we're apart

When we met
How the bright sun shone
Then love died
Now the rainbow is gone

Black, black
The nights I've known
Longing for you
So lost and alone

Gone, gone
The love we knew
Blue is my world
Now I'm without you

When we met
How the bright sun shone
Then love died
Now the rainbow is gone

Black, black
The nights I've known
Longing for you
So lost and alone

Blue, blue
My world is blue
Blue is my world
Now I'm without you
