A Little Bit........Of Progress

Yes, there's been a little bit of progress
here the last couple of weeks.

What used to take days now takes weeks, but
you won't hear me complain.

There was a startled gasp from my sewing machine,
but she soon recovered enough to welcome me "home."

I sewed up one of the two nighties I cut out.

I have used this pattern since I was first married.
The other nightie is about 1/3 done.

I caught the "bootie bug" from Jennifer and found the pattern
for these little shoes on Ravelry.
I picked a crochet pattern.......needed a "quick" fix.
These sweeties fit the bill, each pair only took a little
over an hour to make.
**Warning**
Bragging about the kids ahead........

My daughter.....the COLLEGE graduate......has received
an offer to teach at the University while
studying for her Master's Degree!
I'm so proud of you, Honey xoxo

My son........the college junior.......interviewed
and won an internship with a
German-based company here in Michigan.
It was stiff competition......congratulations, Kiddo!!!

If you are a praying person, please
add Karen to your prayers.

And finally, who is this little dog, and
what does she think she's doing?
"I need to rest now......cause I play work so hard."

"Conspicuously absent from the Ten Commandments is
any obligation of parent to child.
We must suppose that God felt it unnecessary
to command by law what He had ensured by love."

OMGosh, Amy!! I was thinking about you last night and was trying to remember the name of your blog to see what you were up to. I was so tired and pretty brain dead because it was very late and I just couldn't make myself go one by one through my blog roll at that time. I was going to make it my priority in the morning to find you. I woke up this morning and there you were. Just like a miracle! I hope you are doing well.
I love your little booties. They are so precious. Take care, hon!
Aloha!

Hi Amy,
What great news about your son and daughter. These are both things to be VERY, VERY proud of. You and the hubby must have done A LOT of things right. : )
Thank you for your kind words when my mom passed away, Amy. They meant a lot to me. I, too, admire you for all you do for your sweet mom. : )
Take care and enjoy the Summer.
