Guess what I bought?

                         ...Patterns!!!

                                               Sigh.... :o) Aah...

                                                             I love this dress!
I am not sure when I am going to make it, because I have a couple projects that I am making at the moment... and this seems like a dress for cooler weather...hmm...
    And there are three different designs... Choices, choices!
 But it reminds me so much of Nancy drew. The elegant heels, crisp, classy dress and pearls.


Next time I go to the craft store, I am planning to get some fabric for one of these purses. I am still not sure which one I will make first...


                     What do you think? :-D


I hope you have a great day!!!!

Mother's Birthday...

                                           My exuberant mother

My Dear mother's b-day is today!!! Holidays in our house always seem to come in bunches. She is 20-sum years old. He he! She most likely wishes that and I think most people that talk to her don't think about her age.

She is young in spirit. She is a wonderful woman and a joy to have as a role model.


Sympathetic
Hospitable and hardworking
Elated
Relaxed
Rapturous
Industrious


 May a new year be a blessing to you, as you are a year wiser, dear Mother!

Father's Day...

Raise your hand if you have a wonderful Daddy! I know I do! God has blessed me with the perfect daddy, for me and my siblings. My father is amazing.

 My Father...

You are a man that is honorable and wise,
You are a teacher that is knowledgeable and kind,
You are a person that brings thoughtfulness to a sentence,
You are a solver that gives importance to every problem,
You are a manager that gives organization the right attention,
You are a comedian that gives funniness to every situation,
You are a worker that exceeds all expectations,
YOU are my... Father... whom will always be the best.


I love you, Daddy!

I hope all fathers, last Sunday, had a blessed and joyful holiday. They deserve respect and consideration. They need our support, compliments, and love. Fathers are wonderful!

Sickness, Craft Projects and Blueberries... Oh My!

                                        
 Eek! I have not written in a long while!
Our whole family got a stomach bug last week so we are now recovered and almost completely. :) In a big family sickness can hit hard on our schedule. Catching up on laundry, cleaning and gardening is a bit time consuming.

The weather has been almost unbearable this week. Very hot... well to what we are use to at least. Even through our sick week I was able to get my knitted purse done. (Yeah!)
                                             The purse!
Also I have been trying to finish a project I started I long while ago and haven't really been working on. Remember that doll I was planning on making? I never finished. Only started it. Now I am finally getting around to finishing it. I have the body done except for the head. That is the hardest part of a doll, because it is a big part of her personality. ( Especially her face.) I will hopefully show a picture of her as soon as I make her a head and clothes. Not sure when that will be. :)

                                             The book I have been using.

 And....
I am participating in Eden's Friendship Afghan Project! You can read up on it here!

I will be getting some yarn and knitting some squares for the quilt soon!!! I am looking forward to it. :D
I got two knitting books today, so that I can practice different patterns for each square. :D

We enjoyed going to our church's picnic on Sunday. Some of our friends kindly took us girls, because daddy was sick at that time. Maggie and I had fun whipping up some blueberry cobbler Tuesday. Abby, Maggie, Joe, and I picked some of our own blueberries from the garden Tuesday morning. Such fun!

Although we haven't been up to that much, I hope you all have been enjoying the warm weather!

What have you all been up to? :-D

Saturday Musings...

                                          Isn't she just peachy...? ;-)









I have been making these little cuties recently. I have been meaning to take a couple photos to show you what I've been up to. But I can't help giving, the others I've made, away. They can be great gifts, and are fun and easy to make. They are about, 7 inches tall and the pattern I made is adjustable and fun to tweak for each new doll. As you can see I made her outfit out the scraps I had left from my dress. :-)

I have also been at a stand still with one of my other projects. I am almost finished knitting a purse but I decided to make fabric handles. I am not quite sure how I am going to make them yet. But I hope to show the finished results soon. :-)

Thank you all for your prayers. My great grandma is doing much better, praise God! She had a pace maker put in yesterday and it seems to be helping. My grandma is still working and she is planning on quitting her job and staying with G.G. (our great grandma).  But before that happens, G.G. will be staying with us every day.   :-D Our grandma will drive her here in the mornings and pick her up at night. It should be fun! :-)


What have you all been doing lately? I'd love to know!

My Great Grandma

Please pray for my dear great grandma... She is 98 and has been such a stable, remarkable, woman. But She hasn't been feeling great lately and her health has declined in the last year. Especially with her heart. She is hopefully going to be getting a pace maker in tomorrow. So please pray for her and her health. You can go to our family blog for details of her condition and updates of how she is doing.

Thank you!
