40th Birthday Party

Yesterday Susie, Hunter and I went to the surprise 40th birthday part for Lesia Stolley. She had invited a few ladies over for a brunch and Jeana turned it into a surprise party. Someone else has a trunk full of hats so we each got a hat when we got there. Some of us had taken off our hats after awhile. It was lots of fun. Hunter was such a good boy at the party. He read books and played outside for awhile.

Here's the Bible bag

This bible bag was such an easy, fun thing to knit!! Also, here's some yarn I got at a thrift store yesterday. It's not chunky, and it's not sport weight, somewhere in between. Would probably make a nice sweater. Don't know how much there is - quite a bit.

New Lights

Here is my latest "creation" - our two vines in the back yard needed a haircut so I took twigs and made a swag - these lights are little mini lights.

Also, here is our new mini garden ready for some seeds - we will plant a few of the early stuff, radishes, carrots, peas, pretty soon. I would guess it's 12' X 10'. (Only a guess). So it will be a taste of fresh stuff in the summer. I am hoping it will get adequate sun.

More sewing, what else?

I noticed a thing when I was signing into the blog that says I have done 104 posts - doesn't seem possible - ???

Anyway, here is the mixer cover that I made from the pattern of Susie's mixer cover. Nothing too spectacular.

The windows are open!! Im enjoying the spring day.

Some Sewing

I picked this fabric up at the Expo. I also saw the pattern there and never would have thought to get it, by looking at the picture on the pattern cover. But they had one made up in the booth and I really liked it. It's a basic tee shirt type pattern, for knit fabric. But it has an interesting design on one side, and this also makes it a little more roomy. I decided it needed a pin to make it more dressy and I used the same idea as those pins we made a few years ago. Only I used the serger to make an edging in a slightly lighter color. I guess you can't see the styling too well unless you look closely.

No pictures

to put up this morning. We had a lovely dinner at Jeff and Susie's yesterday with ham and mustard sauce. Sandra made her delicious cinnamon butter and Amy made lemon meringue pie and chocolate meringue pie. Gospel meeting and then an evening to put our feet up.

I guess I didn't say anything about having Hunter overnight on Friday. We had a really fun time with him and you can see it on our Picasa album. It made us remember how busy you are when you are parents of young children.

Saturday was busy with a funeral in the morning and then I cleaned house in the afternoon. If it would stop raining we could start to get some outside work going. Doesn't look like that will happen for a few days.

Another beautiful day

We certainly appreciate beautiful sunny days after our long winter, and I know ours wasn't as long and hard as some.

I just finished reading The Associate by John Grisham, his brand new book. It's another lawyer thriller, and was interesting enough to keep me reading, a page turner, you might say. Nothing too indepth, but a good book. I recommend it.

Here's my new bible bag, too, half done.

Carissa made me this lovely bag for my knitting (second picture). She has a small zipper bag inside to hold smaller things. So I made myself a little zipper bag for mine.

Monday - nothing much new

I will just post one random picture. I don't have any new interesting ones. It looks like spring really will come. Supposed to be nice today for a a change!!!

We really enjoyed having the workers here for a few days. It's very uplifting. Didn't even get a picture :-( I could have put that up.

We were invited out to lunch yesterday. There were 3 other couples there besides the people whose house we were at, and all of the couples were about the same age - mid 50's to mid-60's. It was very enjoyable! Not to mention good food - she had creme brule for dessert.
