I was surprised today by a friend stopping by. She brought me a super yummy gift.
Thank you "E" for your thoughtful gift. She knows I can't have dairy. I am very appreciative of her kindness.
One of my latest projects is knitting preemie hats and booties for the local hospital. I found a group of ladies doing this and volunteered.
Still have some sewing to do...
My goal is to make one hat and bootie a day.
They are so tiny and don't take long to do!
Woke up this morning to Nick announcing we were going fishing.
Packed up the car and off we went. Had a really great time. It was so peaceful out there. We didn't catch any fish but that's ok.
On the way home, we stopped by the local town's festivities and got a meal there. Went to a quilt show and saw some beautiful quilts and afghans.
I had a wonderful day with my beloved.
Of course I had to bring my knitting along.
I'm working on a dog sweater for a friend's mini daschund.
We went to the annual Methodist garage sale on Friday. I didn't find anything I was looking for- donut cutter and mini loaf pans. I checked out the craft section and came home with a knitting basket, (I've always wanted one but all I could find were torn and broken. This one is in good shape.) two yellow skeins of cotton yarn for dishcloths, one skein of bulky yarn in a brand I've been wanting to try, four gardening pots perfect for my herbs, and best of all a needle felting kit that came with two needles, a clover needle felted tool, two ounces of wool roving and some sort of doll pin for felting. I just saw the roving and grabbed it not realizing all the treasures inside.
I got everything for $2.75!!!
I've been wanting to make felted flowers for my felted pouches. So very excited to learn how to use it.
