Matt 11:28-12:128 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and Iwill give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."NIV

Now my friends go dance with Jesus! I am!

Here are a few little flowers Im working on right now:) I just got a great little book called 100 flowers to knit and crochet. If I knew how to knit I would love to knit these little flowers. But there is over 50 crocheted flowers to amuse me so Im making them as fast as I can go:)

I started a new afghan as well for someone I cant mention here becasue others would know and tell her and I want it to be a surprise:) SO here I go again with crochet crochet crochet!

Im wanting to do a little embroidery right now so I may get in my stash of threads and make some cute little pillows I dont know but I do believe its because of Dani she inspires me to embroider. If you get a chance go see her awesome work over at her etsy site. You can find it here DaniV1951's Newsletter.

Ok Im off to crochet some more have a very blessed day and enjoy the weather!

Heres my mom after she got out ogf the hospital. She is looking at a baby dress that I made that she asked me for.
Heres the baby dress, bloomers, hat, and booties that I made for a friend of my moms. She asked me for a little girlie dress:) I found the pattern at Annies Attic. It was so easy to make I loved doing it. I may do another one just for me so I can dress up my dolly. What do you all think?

Dont you love this flower pic? This is my daughter Abbeas first attempt at drawing. She loves drawing now and I think she is doing a great job. What do you all think?

How do you like my new pillow I found the pattern for the flower from a book I bought from my friend Dani . I loved making the flower and couldnt figure out what to do with them all till I thought of the pillow:) Cute huh?

Ok heres my grandkids in crochet! heehee thats what I told them so Im sticking to the tale:) heehee they where so much fun to make I think Im going to make pins out of them what do you think do you have any ideas of what to do with them?
As you can tell Ive been busy crocheting and doodling around. I really need to get my house straightened out because its spring! Thats what you do in the beginning of spring right?
I went to my friend Carols service it was so nice I loved it! Sweet and pleasant for what it was. I enjoyed the gathering of friends and all.
While I was there some saw my crochetedd bag and they asked if I would make them one so now Im in the midst of crocheting another bag. Im really enjoying the process of this bag it is so much fun to make. After I get done with making this bag Im going to start making the lapghans for my charity for this year. I decided to make them from the convalesant home again because I really think they need a little love from us all. I know so many think they are just forgotten. So I want to show them that Jesus never forgets them.
Ok everyone have a blessed day today and enjoy breathing !

In loving memory...

Heres my friend Carol. Isnt she pretty? Ive always loved the way she styled her hair. Very pretty indeed. Well on Sunday March 1st 2009 at 5:05 pm Carol went home to be with the Lord. I will miss Carol something terrible I know. I wish I would have called her on Saturday like I wanted too but my life just got in my way. You all know how that goes dont you? Carol was a very sweet woman and very giving. She was a wonderful friend that any one could ask to know. She was stubborn too let me tell you. She made the best beef sandwiches Ive ever had and the most wonderful potatoe salad. Im just going to have to wait till I get to heaven to get more I know! Carol loved collecting dolls and she loved her children. I pray Carol knows how much I loved her. Please say a prayer for her family and many friends. They too miss her already Im sure of that!
