Knitting again..

These wash cloth patterns are gems, and easy to knit!  The small pink one is supposed to be for makeup removal. The yellow one has a teabag & sugar inside of it, nice to carry in your purse. I want to knit one from cotton.  I found them at simplynotable.com    I am still trying to post from the 'Blogger' app on the ipad and it won't let me type under the picture or add more than one picture at a time.  Puzzling!

A little foal....is born

 What a treat it was when this little one was born. We were coming home from shopping and I noticed ....in the neighbor's pasture....the tiniest little head I ever did see.  And then the struggle to stand up, made this little horse look like a Bambi...legs splayed wide and staggering about once  it finally managed to stand! I went for the camera and hubby got some great shots!  (click on these for a larger picture)



 Blogger isn't working the greatest today.  so I hope I can get these few pictures posted.   Isn't he or she the cutest thing?  Some other horses crowded around the baby and we were worried for its safety.  The Mom kept circling her baby to get between it and other horses,  and she worked it right over to the fence where my husband was watching and taking pictures.  This little guy is probably about 30 minutes old or so.  Notice- he or she has a little goatee.  And its red mane is so pretty, isn't it.


Oh wow!

A French Press for tea!

IIsn't this a pretty little tea maker?  Loose tea or coffee made in a French Press completely mellows the flavor, no bitterness left, not a tinge.  I' loving my French press's.  We were in Ligoner yesterday at the most darling shop, I have a few more pictures to post, but back to my breakfast for now.

Coming attraction!



I am looking forward to seeing at least some of these volunteers from last year!  And I did not know that blogger had an app for blogging on iPads.  Now I can access my camera roll easily when I blog from this iPad.  A very good thing. I find I spend more time on this because it is so portable.  

We started spring revival at church today....good messages!  And, last evening I made 12 pair of earrings, I had wondered if I'd still remember how to make them and they practically made themselves.  Now to get that tatting going.  It's so nice to accomplish things.  That's all of my news for now, hope your day has been full of nice moments.

Just a small update.....Hubby is doing well, thanks for praying!  It is the end of the day already.  I always think I'm going to get a whole lot more done than I ever do.  Does that happen to you too?  Every day I'm sure I will do some tatting and there it lays....waiting on me to you-tube a 'how to' on doing a split ring.  I miss my needlework!  Hope your day tomorrow is sunny and sweet...

Look who came to visit!

 This little girl was dropped off and turned up at our house.  We suspect she will be having kittens soon?  She is very affectionate and we've enjoyed having her around but..but....what will the future hold.  We had a cat dropped off once before, that we were oh so fond of and she had a litter of about 6 lively kittens on our back porch.  They swung off the lily stems and broke most all the plants....turned my flower bed into outdoor facilities.  Oh my, they were cute but destructive.  Finally, one sad day we managed to corral them and take them to the animal pound.  7 cats were just to many.

 Isn't she a little beauty?  I think Little Girl may have been someone's house pet,  she is so tame and loves you so whole-heartedly.

This gorgeous flower has given me so much enjoyment!  A $5 purchase from Aldi's before Easter.  It still looks like this!

My husband is doing well,  still has pain at times,  and tires extremely easily.  I don't think men understand that major surgery takes a long time of healing and fatigue and so on.  Still, he's been a trouper, and God's hand of blessing on him is evident and we are so thankful.  Please pray he will be continue to heal well and have no serious problems. It will be 3 weeks Wed. since his surgery and he sees his surgeon a week or so after that.

Little blessings...

 After an 80 degree day yesterday....today's 60 degrees seems downright chilly!  and overcast!  I am missing the sunshine of yesterday.  It is so cheerful to see pots and baskets of pansies out for sale now!

How beautiful colors are,  I love the water color app I've used here.  Wouldn't you love to be able to draw and paint like this app does?  Oh, would I.  But...tooo lazy to try ...lol.
