Yummy and I'm Finished!

Last night we had the kids, and grandkids, over for supper. Randy cooked tenderloin, good old fried tenderloin. It was wonderful, he really has a way in the kitchen. Thank God, because most of the time, I can't or don't want to find my way in there!

I finally finished my Nora Sweater from the Interweave Knits Winter 2009 cover.
This sweater was so much fun to make, and it's going to be very warm and snuggly to wear. I don't have a completed picture of my version yet, but here is a work in progress picture.

The flash must have been really strong in this room, because it really isn't that bright of a red, it's called Autumn Red. The yarn I used was Caron Simply Soft, which is one of my favorite yarns to use. 

I also just finished some fingerless mittens for Weston and Gabriel. They are constantly outside with either BB guns or Air Soft guns shooting at targets. So they needed some mitts that they could still wear and be able to use their trigger finger. Here they are...

The New Year

I can't believe it is the new year already, where in the world did 2010 go?

Some of us were sitting around the table on New Year's Eve talking about our blessings in 2010 and what we are looking forward to in 2011. I have so many things to be thankful for that happened in 2010, most of all is the good health of most of my family. I learned how to spin and got my new spinning wheel in the last year, also all of our livestock had healthy babies.

My nephew David and his wife Melanie had a baby boy, Jaxon Levi Rush, he will carry on the Rush name. Poor little guy, he already has the burden on his shoulders! He is a sweet baby, and I even have a picture of the four generations of Rush men...

I also got my little dog Ginger last year. THAT is something I didn't think I would ever do, but I did, and I sure am happy about it. For a while there I wanted to scream and throw my hands up yell, "I give up!", but I kept on, and she is pretty well potty trained now. I love her so much, and she is somebody else to knit for, yay! Did I say "somebody"? Yep, she's my baby.

When Daniel and Holly came over the other night, Chloe was all dressed up so cute, and she had on her poncho I made her at the end of last winter. Take a peek at her, isn't she a doll?

See? I have so many great reasons to be thankful, and God is so great, He just keeps blessing me and blessing me!

2011 here we come!
