Edging a baby blanket for Cooper today at least.
ended up edging 2 blankets today.
I think posting on Sundays may be just not as consistant as i would like, the day always seems filled to where i just dont always have time to logon.
After church yesterday we had a meeting of the wedding party for the kidlettes wedding in August and got some of the time frame set. Then went with the kids and got them registered for gifts at a local target.
Alice is going to decorate the bulletin boards in the fellowship hall so they dont look so nasty for the reception.
Dennis is going to talk with Dave about removing the game tables for the youth group 2 weeks early so we have time to clean and set up the room since covered dish sunday is the same week at church and might throw a monkey wrench into the planning.
Jill has made some lovely decorations for the fellowship hall and is working on some fdor the stage also, that woman has so much talent i am always amazed by what she makes. Jill just amazes me in many areas .
What i made yesterday but didnt record.
Crocheted edging on 2 baby blankets for layette sets for Cooper Hospital
Made 2 layette sets for Cooper Hospital.

I mowed today and even if it takes 4-5 hours to do its a blessing because i can spent that time in prayer.
Went to the post office , but my package hadn't arrived yet . Picked up a few groceries .
Mailed off my last package to Tish yesterday . Its sad the group is closing it is such a blessing to have so many christian ladies in one group.
Got a email from the group Tish recommended and its full at this time but mama is going to keep my application until there is a opening : O ) God is so good.
I am so drained of energy now mowing for 5 hours in 95 + temps tends to wear one plum out. Not sure if i will have the energy to even crochet tonight , But Ginden needs 80 scarves for the nurses for christmas so i need to try to make a few more for her. Finished another scarf and hat set last night so that makes 2 more sets and a scarf finished and ready to mail, plus the 3 or 4 i already sent her.
Have a burial layette in the making and should be able to finish it this weekend if the wedding plans doesn't take all of the time lol.
Thursday, July 03, 2008
