Chores, stitching, and sun

Good morning.  It is nice and sunny now.  We were awoke by a nasty, windy, thunderstorm and heavy rain this morning.  Texas is something else when it comes to rain storms.  I think it is because we are so close to the Bay and the Gulf.

I worked on the baby blanket last night while I watched Ghost Hunters.  It wasn't a very good one.  Next week looks better.

I am getting back to normal around here after Bri being home all last week.  She will be off for Good Friday.  So we are packing a lunch and headed to that great park that we found down by the water.  She can run her little tail off.  I can get an "arm workout" using the hand ferry thing that she likes.  And we have a beautiful forecast for Friday for a family outting.  I am blessed.

My job work is done for the week.  So I am free to putter around the house.  I need to bake two cakes and two pies for the fish fry at the church on Saturday.  I have to put together a kitchen basket for the silent auction.  I want to put two homemade dishclothes in it.  I will be taking tickets and dishing up desserts on Saturday.  Again a beautiful forecast.

Well, have a wonderful day.  And please mention my giveaway if you want to be in for the Daily Bible.

The color I am using for the baby blanket

Update on "Now I Know My ABCs"

Start of a sampler in SANQ.

One of my dishcloths.  Great color stripes.


  1. Very nice stitching. I admire people who have patience to do that kind of thing. I crocheted a dish cloth and some scarves once, but been so long, I'd have to re-learn it. Have a great day of puttering!

  2. Love the knitting. Wish I had knitting skills. Don't have them.

  3. wonderful stitching!!! Enjoy your puttering time!! I love the new blog look!

  4. Beautiful!! I have always wanted to learn how to knit, crochet or sew. I'm sad to say I have no idea how to do any of it.

  5. I would love to learn how to knit!! I think that dish cloth is very cool. It would match my kitchen.

  6. Oh honey, you have been one busy chick. Your work is just beautiful.

    I just wanted to pop in and wish you a wonderfully blessed weekend!

    God bless ya'll!!!

  7. Amy, your work is just beautiful. I love your post about what you are doing! What kind of cakes and pies are you making? Your handiwork is one-of-a-kind! I love those dishcloths. My 78 year young Mother makes them for me. I need to learn how too. They are my dishcloth of choice.

    I think it is wonderful that you are giving away a bible. I will pray that the right one gets it. Oh, count me in. I am a bible study teacher and a Christian speaker. I have so many people to share a bible with!
    You have such a lovely blog!
