"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

  9. Ahem...for some of us, that would take a lot longer than two hours. A lot longer. Just sayin'. Oh, I still wish you could be my knitting tutor! Just think of all the fun we'd have...knitting, talking, sipping coffee/tea, talking...you get the idea.

    Your little grandgirl is going to be the best dressed baby around!

  18. Reminds me of a great, all-purpose, "one-hour" skirt pattern I have. Except it takes me several days to churn out one sweet skirt :-) I'm getting better slowly but surely, and those skirts are a labor of love for my girls!

  34. Absolutely beautiful! Your comment on my blog made me laugh as I could see you would maybe think I was talking about a different kind of "Crabby" Father's Day :) I was trying to make the title stand out, but maybe I made it stand out in the wrong way. I am looking forward to a very happy and fun-filled Father's Day with my precious dad and sweet husband :) Have a lovely evening!

    Hugs to you!
