Busy... Busy...

I mailed the little sweater set that I had made to my cousin for her new Granddaughter. I also sent along two burp pads that I had made. They should get to them by Saturday but with the way the mail is it could be Monday or Tuesday before they get them.


I completed and mailed out the remaining "Turning Four-T" blocks. One was a black print and the last one a "scrappy" ; I hope that the ladies will like them.





We've been getting quite a bit of rain this week - THANKFULLY!And these little zinnias in my garden have really enjoyed it all; they are so lovely to see out my kitchen window. Next Spring I will plant a LOT more flowers throughout the garden amongst the vegetables. I just love the colors they bring to the garden and I do believe they would also bring the bee's that I need for pollination of my vegetables.


I found a pattern on the Lion Brand website for a sweater done in circles and decided to make it for myself. I had several 1 pound bags of a cotton yarn in my "stash" that I had bought at A.C. Moore a couple years ago. Here is the start of one of the sleeves. It will definitely be a one of a kind sweater. I love this color as it will go with any neutral really well.

I haven't been feeling too well today so have been taking it pretty easy. I tried to get groceries early in the day but got to feeling really sick in the store so I came home and took a nap. I need to go back and get some more necessities tonight - got to have milk for cereal in the morning.
