Three Bags Full

Seen here are the strips I've completed so far.  There's still room in the box I'm shipping them in so I will continue to make more.  I've also begun a black and yellow blanket for another cause.

A Happy Ten


It's so hard to believe that ten years has gone by.  Michael is a very happy child.  For his birthday we adopted two kittens from the local Humane Society.  His is the black and white one he's named Penny and the black one is her sister Shadow.  I pray Michael will always have joy.  He certainly has brought a lot of happiness to us:~)

July Highlights


Flowers from dear friends on the passing of my Dad.  Thankful he's at peace.
First son turned 21 on the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and got married last Sunday at Phelps Grove Park(please pray for them to enter into a more holy union).
So far I've made 159 strips for the comfort balls to be sent to Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd, Houston, MO 65483-2225.  May your days be blessed!!!

Strips For Comfort Balls


On this first day of summer 2014 look what I "caught" in my son's butterfly net.  Four strips for comfort balls.  These strips are to be my summer knitting project to be sent to Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd., Houston, MO 65483-2225.  It's a wonderful way to use up my stash odd balls, keep heavy knitting off my lap, and do something worthwhile.
Daniel just got back yesterday from a week long mission trip to Oklahoma City with the youth group from church.  It was a success according to him.  It sure was quiet with him gone.  We all missed him.
Hope you can find a way to help someone this summer.  A little something every day even if it's a prayer is a wonderful way to use the many gifts God gives us:~)

Sweet Kitty Nap

I just love to see a cat taking a cute little nap:~)

Lego Creations

After we saw The Lego Movie as a family, Michael came up with these super creations:~)

Civil War Reenactment

Daniel was playing the part of Lee H. Mckinley b. unknown d. Aug 10, 1863 Philadelphia National Cemetery.  The top shirt was one we had in the closet and the buttons and stripes were made using yellow Duck Tape.  His school has an annual Civil War reenactment.  It was a wonderful experience for him.

Praying For Your Children


I was inspired today by Aunt Ruthie at Sugar Pie Farm House about
praying for my children.  I hope you are inspired by her as well.

Easter Greetings

It's a beautiful sunny day here today.  I've been working on some preemie hats using this pattern.  The yarn is Lion Brand Yarns Babysoft in pastel print colorway.  We've also been busy with track meets and concerts.  It seems like all activities are busting out like spring flowers.  I pray that everyone is enjoying a most blessed Easter time.
