A Week's Work




This week Sevrine went to Utah to visit her dad and I get a break from watching her. On my list of things I wanted to get done during this break was to make jam. I usually make jam this time a year and we were getting low on my raspberry. (Ric's favorite.) I made enough batches to replenish my pantry and some to give away to friends.
While watching the College World Series, I started the baby blanket. This was born out of a mistake I made in a scarf pattern I was working on. I had miss counted and the lace pattern did not look like the pattern, but I liked this result instead and thought it made for a nice blanket pattern. I interchanged the cross stitch to give my wrists a break. Both projects are fun to work on and I am getting more done than I expected because ASU is still in the tournament and I get a little excited when the home team is on. LOL

Thanks for dropping by, Friend. You have some beautiful work on here--I love your samplers-- and ALL your handwork!! Your family is beautiful!

YOU have a wonderful, busy, blessed life--it's evident in your blog! I used to cross stitch, but my eyes can't see that anymore--wish I had taken pictures of all my work--good for you to think about it! Of course, I didn't have a digital back then OR a computer!lol
