Hello, I am back
Feeling better today, I am sure that's cause I know Adam is coming.
This is the little purse I made yesterday. I just kind of winged the pattern, I was at first trying to make a heart shaped, but I ended up with a triangle, I made two of them using half double crochet stitch, I decreased on the ends of the rows until it made a triangle, then I sewed them both together and single crocheted around the opening, then went around again making holes for a drawstring, and once more with a scalloped edge. I double strand crocheted a handle and a draw string, and added the butterfly beads to the end of the drawstring. I think it came out nice. Much nicer then the pictures look. I am calling it "Berry Beautiful Baguette". I may try to make another and actually write down the pattern, I think I started with a chain of 26. I honestly don't remember, but it was a bad day yesterday, my mind was not running on all cylinders, LOL.
Oh yeah, today is the 21st isn't it? That means it's my anniversary. I have been married 27 years today. I can't say it's always been happy, in fact we had many rough years, but with lots of prayer and work we were able to hold it together. We have had fires, the loss of a baby, severe injuries to kids, sicknesses and surgeries, financial disasters, and these are just a few. But God uses everything in our lives to make us stronger, and I believe He made us stronger through these things too. I can only imagine where I'd be now had I given up trying to make this marriage work, and that is what really keeps me from stopping even now when things are rough.
We don't really have any plans, it's already a jam packed weekend. Tomorrow we go to a birthday party/clam steam, and Sunday after church we are taking Adam to a birthday party for Jack (The little boy he was playing with at Hannah's party in August, Jack and Adam are only 6 days apart in age)from what I hear they are having a clown, a bouncy house and who knows what else. My sister told me Jack's mom went way overboard, spent over $1000. She's crazy. I'd fret if a party cost me $100.
Oh yesterday I think I finished designing a pattern for a woman who requested a policeman's cap. I like how it came out for the most part, but I can't get the picture to come out clear on the camera. I really need to learn how to BLOCK.
So any Survivor fans out there? I have been a fan since season 1. I know how that Christian radio host felt about bowing down in that ceremony, I would have had trouble too. I like how she said she was not religious but had a personal relationship with Jesus and only to Him would she bow. I hope she stays around her attitude sounds right on. She can hopefully show how Jesus really is alive and walking with her, and maybe lives will be changed in China in more ways then 1.
I guess that's all for now.
Off to see about breakfast and cleaning up Adams toys before he gets here to mess them up again.
