I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee...Psalm 9:verses 1 and 2a

A day at home...
I succumbed to this beauty while browsing in an stained glass shop in Scottsdale, Az. Isn't it pretty!
My summer sweater I am knitting is coming along nicely, but it does make me wonder how many thousands of stitches are in it so far...ha ha. It has listened to several cowboy movies lately, (if that were possible). One of the stars in the cowboy movie is/was 'Rocky Lane' and I have this peculiar talent for recognizing resemblance's. Rocky Lane was a 'brother' of ....you'll never guess who! None other than 'Buzz Lightyear'. Yes, really ....or I thought so anyway! I found him quite entertaining and felt very clever to have recognized the resemblance.
This is the $4.00 doily I told you about. Isn't it beautiful! I've always loved the Irish Rose pattern and this one is a beauty. Quite large too.
Here's a close-up of the center....the Irish Rose herself. When I was in my 20's....every morning I would spend an hour or two crocheting on doilies....many were ruffled or pineapple design. How I loved to make and use them.
And on a overcast, rather dreary cold day, what could be better than a cup or two of Starbucks coffee? I don't indulge often but boy did it hit the spot today. What a great day...hubby is off to pick up some fast food so we don't have to cook supper. Does it get any better than that in the kitchen? So, it will be a cozy supper and rest and then off to prayer meeting.
Psalm 145:10 'All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.'
