Lots of Good Stuff Going On

It's been very busy around here with all good stuff. Kaleigh got confirmed last Sunday. It was a very beautiful and personable confirmation; one she/we will always remember. Casey was her sponser. It was hard for her to decide which brother to have as they all would have been honored but in the end, Casey was the one! We had a wonderful family celebration afterwards... truly a memorable day.

We've been particularly busy with gardening and outdoor projects. When we go to bed at night everyone is pretty tired. Good tired, know what I mean? The little kids are playing outside nearly all day and we've had lots of dinners on the deck! I just love this time of year.

At night, I'm relaxing with knitting; lots of knitting. This is a dishcloth I made for myself. Since January I'm trying to make one a month. This pattern came from Homespun Living Blog as a freebie. I only run my dishwasher once a day, yet it sure could be run much more than that. Instead I wash many dishes, usually four times a day by hand. The handmade dishcloths sure makes washing my dishes more pleasurable. They're very sturdy and pretty, too. I've also been working on a baby bunting for a very good friend of mine. It's turning out to be quite the project but it's coming out beautifully and it's fun to work on. My friend is a knitter, too, so I know she'll really like it.
Once that is complete, I have some cross-stitching I'd like to work on. My fingers are just itching to hold a needle!

Congratulations to Kayleigh! I bet the tears of joy were flowing! Post pictures of the garden! Your dish cloth stitches are so straight and even...sigh, I am not a good knitter but am so inspired to keep working at it when I see your work xoxo
