Hello my friends. It was a rainy Monday and a rainy Tuesday morning, but as I write this the sun is shining. It is supposed to rain a bit more and it's snowing in the mountains east of us, but it is a good day! We need the rain desperately so you'll hear no complaints from me.
I finished the baby blanket but I'm not sure where it will go. I have lots of places to choose from and I just wish I could knit and crochet a lot faster to help with all of the needs that are out there.
One baby hat done and another almost finished. It's a new pattern that I'm trying out. What do you think? It's super simple and doesn't take any counting once you cast on.
My log cabin blanket has grown just a little bit. I had to go to Paradise Fibers and get a longer cable to go on my interchangeable needles. This is a 60 inch cable on size 8 Hiya Hiya interchangeable tips. I also bought some cable connectors so I can make the cable even longer when I need too. I'm enjoying knitting this blanket even though it will take a long, long time to finish.
A closer look at the cable and tip. The cable is very flexible which I like a lot.
My Easter decorations are out. See the almost black bananas in the bowl on the right? I'm going to make banana bread tomorrow. I also have a little Easter tree and a wreath that I'll try to remember to show you later.
A closer look at the flowers I crocheted last year for the spring/summer garland.
We went out to the lake and opened the camper last weekend. Hurray! We plan to spend the night there on Friday. Another yippee! On the way home we stopped at Clayton Burger, a burger shack in a tiny town about 3 miles from the lake. Each season the owner changes the decorations. I can't imagine where she stores them all. Take a look at just SOME of the Easter decorations she has out right now.
Love the wreaths.
Lots of bunnies.
Flowers everywhere too.
I always enjoy going in and seeing the new things that are there. Rememember, she has this much stuff and more for every holiday and season. Amazing.
I also found a recipe yesterday for one hour cinnamon rolls. From scratch with yeast and everything! I'm planning to make them on Thursday for Bible study. We'll see if they turn out. I'll let you know and post the recipe if they do. I can't imagine fresh, homemade cinnamon rolls in one hour.
There is SO much "crud" going around out there right now. Everyone in Dennis' office seems to have it and lots of people at church too. Nita has forbade me from getting sick before the cruise. Dennis and I have both been popping immunity supplements like crazy trying to keep well. It seems like once you get this stuff it never goes away.
And now it's time to make dinner. Homemade macaroni and cheese with ham is on the menu tonight. Doesn't that sound yummy on a chilly day?
Have a lovely, lovely day my friends. I am so grateful for each one of you.
"But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anythig back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." Luke 6:35-36
