Family Stuff and Finishing Stuff

The Prayer Shawl above is close to being finished. In the meantime, I also have a scarf for Michigan Special Olympics on the needles as well as the always-in-progress dishcloth. The colors are not that great on the photo of the scarf. The Michigan Special Olympics folks are trying to collect scarves knitted or crocheted, using Red and Teal by a January deadline so that each participant may have a "team scarf". One of the gals in my knitting guild brought this to our attention and is collecting the scarves. They need to be approximately 6 inches wide by 50-60 inches long. Mine is getting very close to being finished so I can give it to her at our knitting guild meeting next week.

I have been doing lots of sewing, also. I will update the blog with photos of the sewing projects later since blogger is not cooperating with allowing me to move the photos as I wish within this post. I made some curtain panels to cover shelving units in Em's Kindergarten classroom. Next project was to sew a bunch of bean bags. Those are finished. Now, I am sewing drawstring bags for another Kindergarten teacher and Em to use for holding some reading curriculum items. The other teacher provided a stack of fabric in cute prints and I am providing the sewing. So far, I have 10 of those bags sewn.

I am having trouble believing almost a month has gone by since I last updated this blog. Where does the time go? I've been busy with family stuff and finishing stuff. Hubby and I spent a long weekend away canoeing, fishing, and camping. That was a nice break from the daily activities.

Last Sunday, we had a nice family day with our daughter and the grand-doggy visiting for the day. I took this opportunity to bake a delicious peach cobbler for dessert. Dozie likes peach cobbler and she loves her Uncle Rob.
