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."
