Monday day 29, a new week begins

Well it's Monday.
I designed another dishcloth pattern yesterday. A woman Barb had sent me several requests for specific patterns, this is one of them. I have been trying to figure out how to make this for at least a month or more. Yesterday I got my inspiration, finally. So it's done. I posted the picture and pattern on my pattern blog, it's called the STAR OF DAVID. I tried to post the picture here but blogger is having issues this morning.

Church was wonderful yesterday. I have been stressing over some personal things, and really felt like God spoke to me pretty clearly Sunday. I love it when that happens. But I should also know when God starts moving in my life the devil is never far behind trying to trip me up. I got tripped yesterday, never saw it coming. It happened moments after I left the church to go to the market. But once I realised what happened I was able to get back up and that's when the dishcloth pattern was revealed. I love it when God beats the devil, and He always does.

Oh my cat, we never named him, is old. My sister named him Alex because he reminded her of the guy in the movie Desperado. Anyway he is very old, getting skinny and rarely wants to go outside anymore. I think he is deaf now too. Well he sleeps anywhere and everywhere, and yesterday and this morning without knowing he was there on my desk chair I have sat right on top of him. First time I thought it was a pile of clothes or something, when I stood up the cat just stayed curled up there, I thought I had killed it. Nope, it just stayed there sleeping. Today as soon as my behind felt the lump under it I knew it was the cat. Geez... We bought our house in 1992, my son was 7. It was a Wednesday night and I was on my way home from church, a friend was driving me and she said "Oh look, your kitty is sitting in the window upstairs" I said " We don't have a cat" ... "Um yes you do and it's in the window" Sure enough Joe said the kitten followed him home. I found out later it followed him home because he had a string tied around it neck pulling it along, lol. So because we don't have a cat, we never named him, lol.

Glad to see you all checked out Mrs. B's blog, wasn't that a fun read? If any of you come across more contests out there, post it in my comment section, I am going to keep the links on the side of my blog for all contests I know about and when they end. Can you tell I love contests?









OK I made Ravelry the poll question today because I got my invite last night. My screen name is gimpykatk (easy for me to remember, although not very creative, lol)
So those of you already in feel free to invite me as a friend, since I don't know how to do that yet. I am excited to check it out today, last night I was very tired. I did set up a profile and that's as far as I got. I signed up on September 26, and got the invite on October 28th, so it took a month. That's not too bad, really.

I guess that's about it for today... I expect to be online alot today checking things out. Oh still working on getting to the 2000th hit I think we need about 600 still, probably won't make it, but we gave it a good try, right?

See you all tomorrow, and remember God is bigger then any problem or concern you have today, the devil is like a flea compared to God, and we shall crush him underneath our feet.

I have signed up and waiting my invite. I am really anxious. It should be in the next couple of weeks I think. When I get in I will add you to my friends and let you know my screen name.

Wendy said...

Ravelry Frenzy as I have so dubbed it, Yes I am waiting my invite, and I think it will be soon. I signed up on Oct. 5 and there is 3575 infront of me......They have invited over 10000 in that time.

Well I do not have time to go through all my blogs today, I slept in and I have to finish cleaning up the house, before Brooke's teacher comes at 1:30 and Katie comes over.....Can't have her seeing the dishes not put away and the floor covered in toys.
Hope everyone has a blessed day today.........(oh I forgot to tell you all, my oven went on the blitz, while cooking dinner yesterday, lets see if the land lord gets up here today)

Kathy, I would visit more often but I am not a knitter. I use to be but it has been a long time and I have even forgotten how to cast on. I am reteaching myself though and using videos from the Internet. Also about that Scrappy Hat Pattern, it is so easy to do. I guess you do both crochet and knit.

Mary Ann said...

Good morning Kathy! I have no idea what you're talking about!!

I do know about the devil you speak of however! He was trying to make me overeat by not allowing good things to come to my refrigerator. Well I showed him and lost weight anyway! My reward was my dd taking me to the flea market where we bought fruits and veggies to fill my fridge!

I flipped my mattress, and changed the sheets. Now I'm in the midst of laundry! Since I can only carry one load at a time, I'm only doing one at a time! It will take a little longer, but one of the dryers hasn't been drying all that well.

Need to straighten up and sort the projects that I've crocheted today. I need a gift for the Halloween party at the club tomorrow, and I don't have a clue what it will be! I don't have money, so I can't buy anything. They'll have to take something I've made!

Something going on here! Is it a ghost playing with my post? hehehe

Aunt Kathy said...

Ghost, you don't have to knit to visit here. I think I talk more about my grandson then anything else. I also love to crochet. And Cross stitch, and decorative paint and... anything that isn't housework, LOL.

SimplyMe said...

2 Ummmm, Kathy, I think your cat is trying to commit suicide!!! (wink, I love ya and you know that)....I should be in ravelry this time next week. I can't wait, no matter how much I've denied this!!!! WTG on overcoming the devil's snares. WTG on finding God in it all, I know it wasn't easy.

I am in and got you in my friends. I got to be your first friend (doing the happy dance) lol.
I really enjoy your blog and find it to be so inspiring at times. I admit that we don't attend a church regularly but I feel that it's what's in your heart that truly matters. Thanks for your inspriing posts and for not being afraid to speak of your beliefs. It really makes a difference in other people's lives.

I'm already a member of Ravelry. I love using it to search for patterns, but I haven't really gotten into using it to organize my stuff because I don't have a camera.
