Good Reading!

I just finished reading the most excellent books! I actually found the first one at a thrift store and loved it so much, I wanted to get the sequel book and found it at the same thrift store! It was the only Debbie Macomber book they had and it was the one I wanted! Isn't God good? I just could not put these books down! I highly recommend them.

Speaking of yarn (book title), I have been busy working on a new baby afghan for my friend. She is going to have her fifth baby in January and I'm also going to make one for my niece who will be having her third child in March. I love the pattern I'm doing. It's quick and easy but looks beautiful when you're done. It uses the "Pound of Love" so there's no lugging around a lot of yarn or having to tie in a new yarn.

It's wonderful. I actually stumbled onto the pattern when I found a half finished afghan at the thrift store (I shop there alot, can you tell?) and decided to finish it up. I was so thrilled to find the "Pound of Love" at JoAnn's as I had been looking all over for it. I got an aqua colored yarn and a teal colored yarn. They also had a lavender, but I thought this might be too girlish if they both have boys. The thing I really like about this yarn is it's 4 ply worsted weight and not the baby weight yarn, which I do not like working with. When you buy the yarn, the pattern is on the inside of the label. It has a crocheted pattern and a knitted pattern for you knitters out there. What could be easier?

We have been getting a lot of rain here the past couple of days. We really needed it and it's so nice how it's cooled things down so beautifully. Hope it lasts!! I don't do well in the heat and we've been having more than our fair share of heat.

Today I didn't cook at all! We ate out for lunch and dinner, which is unheard of, but nice for a change. Nothing fancy, just fast food. I'll plan on something really nice for tomorrow.


  1. Are you a knitter or crocheter?

    My hubby and I crochet. Believe it or not, hubby makes nice afagans (sp). I tend to get too complicated and then do not finish.

    I think knitting and crocheting are both wonderful "sports" for boys and intend to teach my boys. Hubbys grandmother taught him as a boy. He has fond memories of many hours and late nights working on projects with his granny.

  2. I had to leave a quick comment as your bolg name caught my eye on another blog, its seems we have the same blog name! How neat is that!!!! I pray your having a very blessed day! You have a lovely blog!

  3. I recently read those books and loved them too. I wish she'd write a few more. I want to know what happens to everyone.
    I'm a knitter and find it just relaxes me. I'm struggling to learn to quilt (my Mom is a brilliant quilter and is attempting to teach me). I want to do it all by hand. I've pieced the top and am now working on the quilting. I set it aside and haven't been able to make myself get started again. I just keep knitting!!

  4. Thanks for visiting me! Debbie Macomber is one of my very favorites too.

  5. I don't believe I've seen that brand of yarn around here, but I'd be interested in trying it out. I need to make a baby afghan pretty soon myself. I can crochet anything I can look at or have a pattern for, but I can't knit for beans! And I've tried, believe me. :-)

    Have a great rest of the week!
