VaLENTine Knitting

The heart shaped pink glittery buttons are from SEW-OLOGY that I got at Hobby Lobby.  They inspired me to work on more micro burial buntings during this season of Lent.  We remember that we are made of dust and dust we shall return.
Bernat Softee Baby yarn in Prettiest Pink is my go-to yarn for this pattern. The ribbon is from Celebrate It 360.  The Valentine pencil is to show scale. The bunting will fit a baby 9 oz. and smaller.

Thank You Norman

These photos of FOs are brought to you thanks to my dear hubby Norman! I will work on another nine patch blanket before working on burial buntings for my Lenten knitting. Hope everyone has the best Lent ever! God bless you!

2018 The Beginning...

Psalm 117
Praise the Lord, all you nations!  Extol him, all you peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.  Praise the Lord!
May 2018 be a year we choose to fill with the love of Christ to all we meet!  Be a blessing and do as much good for others as much as we are able, for we shall not pass this way again!  Let's purpose to make each day we are given the best day ever!
Thank you dear God for your steadfast love!  Help me to share your love to all I meet.

December 2017

Ready for Advent.
Working on more nine patch knit blankets.
Trying to get over a cold.
I think I blinked and then it was December.
Time for a cup of coffee and then a cough drop.
Stay warm and count your blessings!
May you have a wonderful and special Advent season!

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Yesterday Norman and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!
God is so good!
We are so greatful for the 97 years my MIL Ruth got to live.  Though she is not physically here this day she is remembered always, as are all who have passed on.
We are getting ready for Advent a bit later, but will celebrate today remembering all we have to be greatful for!  For all the trials and tribulations we endure, we are so very blessed!
To God be the glory! Great things He has done!
God bless us every one!

November 1, 2017

My dear hubby and I went to see William Shatner in Branson at the Welk Resort Theatre last Friday evening.  Mister Shatner puts on a very entertaining show and is one of the best storytellers we have.
I continue to knit up some nine patch blankets and will soon be working up some log cabin type blankets as well with a preemie Christmas hat or two thrown into the mix. These are for our local Newborns In Need.
There was a pretty lavender blanket I knit up about ten years ago (!) that was lacy and I began one in pink this time and is a WIP as well.
There are buttons and yarn ready for knitting up some burial buntings later on.
In between knitting I am reading "Up Till Now", and "Shatner Rules".
I am so thankful for my dear husband who supports me in my charity knitting and for charities like Newborns In Need and Relief Share. We also support our local Ronald McDonald Houses. In this country especially, we have much to be thankful for!
I am thankful for each day given to me that I get to be with my family and friends!

For Times Like These...

"These are the times that tries men's souls."~Thomas Paine
"I won't back down."~Tom Petty
"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."~Romans 12:21
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."~Philippians 4:13
I am so thankful that we have a Savior who has overcome the world!  He is my consolation!  Each day has it's own trials and tribulations but I know He is able to get me through whatever each day holds!  Thank you Jesus!!!  Jesus I love you!!!  Jesus I trust in you!!!
