Catching Up...

It's been over a week since I last wrote. 
Guess I didn't have much to say.

A quick catch-up for you...

I went to visit Doreen last week.
It was so good to spend time with her.
She's doing okay for now.
Her pain is being managed.
I went up one day, stayed the night,
and came back the next day.
A nice drive...less than 3 hours.
I will go back in a few weeks.

Here she is with her kids, Chad & Stacey.
 oh...and her dog, Jerry.

I've been knitting...
did up a bunch of face washcloths.
Mostly to give as Mother's Day gifts.
Used all 100% cotton yarns...
so soft on the face.
Here are just a few of them...

I haven't been able to really 
put much thought into sewing/quilting.
Too much going on in my head.

But, in a few days, I will be 
making up a space of my own. 
And, I need to sew curtains for my space.
I bought the fabric, thread, curtain rings
and curtain rods over 4 years ago.
All this time, I've had this idea
of how I want the curtains to look.  
Just haven't gotten them made.
Thinking now is a good time, hey?

Jill and Tim were here last weekend...
Joyce and Jody will be here this weekend.
More on that later.

That's all for now...hope your week is good.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Nothing like smiles and new memories to cherish.
Love those wash cloths.
That is truly one of very fav scriptures.
God gave to me during a very hard time a few years ago.
