Ohhhhhhhhhh my Goshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

Ohhhhhhhhhh my Gosh! Have I got newssssssssss I am going to be a grandma once againnnnnnnn by none other then my daughter and babyyyyyyyyy Kerrie: Number five will be born on or about septemeber first! I am soooooooooo excited for her and me! This time I hope to actually be there while she has the baby. Every other baby I have not been able to be there either because of work or distance. I came very close with the first one and only missed him by minutes but this one I am hoping to be there on time. This will make eleven grandkids and two greats between us. wowwwwwwwww who would have everrrrrrrr thought".

I know its been awhile again since I have posted but it seems like there is always something going on and its just hard to get here each day. I think I mentioned not too long ago that I found a new church that I really like. Well hubby has even taken an interest in it so we spend a bit of time there between going to dinners, my craft group and last week we offered to help clean as it is a very small congregation so they do not hire anyone to come in and clean so the members take turns signing up. we signed up for the next three months to clean the nursury. Wouldn't you know the day we were supposed to clean I had to work late so Hubby got to go and clean by himself. He said he had a nice time as there were others there cleaning and they all sat around and visited with coffee afterwards. so I don't feel quite so bad.

Have you all heard about the mugrugs going around? these are sooooooooo cute! I have been wanting to make some forever and this afternoon I finally got around to making one. I mentioned to kerrie that I wanted to make some and she said it would sure be nice if I made one that was coffee themed hint hintttttttt so thats what I did. The fabric is actually much brighter then it is shown here. not sure why the picture came out so dull but its cute! These are larger then a coaster so that they will hold your cup of coffee or tea and a couple of cookies, or a cupcake, doughnut you get the ideaaaaaa anyway I just love them. Would like to get some made up for christmas next year. I bought some valentines fabric yestarday at the fabric barn so I might have to make a few more.
Lately I have been in a no sewing mood. It always seems to hit me after christmas is over with" I think I am just plain worn out. But it is gradually comming back too me so I have a stack of things that I would like to work on. Ohhhhhhhhhhh I am even going to teach myself to knit. My daughter in law bought me a bag of yarn with a beginners book , cd, needles ect. so today I sat down and watched a vidio on continental knitting which I love. after watching all the other methods I think this is the one for me. I already have some thread casted on to the needle so its a beginning. I still have my afghan waiting to be chorcheted too. 'Have been working on my grandmothers flower garden blocks . Welllllllllll guess I had better get off this thing as it is getting late and I have been in here most of the day doing one thing or another. take care untill we meet again.
