More Words To Live By!

My daughter-in-law sent this to me.  It was so sweet I just had to post it!

More Words To Live By!

I saw this today on facebook and thought it was worth sharing.

Homemaking is surely in reality the most important work in the world.  What do ships, railways, mines, cars, government, etc., exist for except that people may be fed, warmed and safe in their homes? . . .  The homemaker's job is one for which all other's exist.

My New Hobby: Scarves!

Like I need another hobby to keep me from what I should be doing!!  I know! But I love making these!

All the women in my family got a scarf as part of their Christmas gift this year.  Here's a sampling of a few I just made.

 This one was knitted using Ice Mambo yarn.  This yarn is so easy to work with!

Same yarn as above for this one, just different colors.  I love this one!

This one is crocheted from Mirabella yarn.  I think this would make a nice spring or summer scarf.

This is another that I think would make a nice summer scarf.  It's light and airy.  I bought this yarn at Michael's, I believe.  I think it's Ice yarn as well, but I'm not sure about that. I know the pattern is Flamenco.

This one is crocheted using Red Heart Sashay yarn.  I've seen a lot of these around town and on facebook.

I bought the yarn for this one at Joann's.  

Most of these yarn patterns come in a rainbow of different colors.  And most of them can be crochet or knit.  I just go with whatever I think looks best for that particular yarn.

More to come, I'm sure!!

More Words To Live By!

Back in October of 2011, I posted a quote I found on Facebook and titled it "Words To Live By."  Amazingly, that post gets a lot of hits!  Recently, I read the following quote somewhere and decided to post it as another "Words To Live By" selection.  This also happens to be my New Year's motto.

Do all the good you can,
In all the ways you can,
To all the people you can,
In every place you can,
At all the times you can,
For as long as ever you can!
