Surprise in the Mailbox!

The mailman brought me a very nice surprise yesterday!! I received my "Pay It Forward" from Jennifer at Through the Storms of Life!! I was going to post a picture yesterday, but I again ran out of time. Where does time go?

So, today I'm sharing a picture with you of Jennifer's "Pay It Forward" to me.

What do you think? Beautiful, isn't it? And to think she made it with her own hands. Thank you so much, Jennifer!! I love the cross you made for me, and I'll cherish it always!!

I'm still working on my "Pay It Forwards"!! Please don't think I've forgotten you because I haven't. They are all works in progress and will be sent out soon, but I'm not going to tell you when or show you pictures right now. It's just too much fun to receive a surprise in your mailbox!! I'll post pictures after everyone has received their "Pay It Forward".

I've been knitting some, and I finally finished the Mid-March KAL from Monthly Dishcloths.

This is the very first circular cloth that I've made, and it's done in Peaches 'n Creme Spring Meadows. I like this a lot, and I think I can see some more being done in the future.

I'm also working on a table runner that is also a KAL from Rachel's Knitting Room.

I haven't been able to do much outside work. The weather hasn't been cooperating very well!! It's either too cold or rainy.

Today was a very nice day, so I planted some pansies in the barrel by my mailbox when I came home from work. Hopefully, Spring will arrive and stay here soon so that I can get outside and do most of the gardening that I'm planning.

I have one area that is triangular shaped that is completely covered in wet leaves right now. I'm hoping to get that all cleaned up, plant a couple of tomato plants and the rest will be a flower garden.

Still working on knitting, but I've come across some very special counted cross stitch projects that I'm also working on. They're not far enough along to post pictures yet, but I'm sure that you'll love them when I do.

Aren't those round dishcloths fun?

Seriously, where does time go? A couple days turn into a week and that quickly turn into two and the next thing you know your baby's about to be seven months old and crawling and you haven't blogged in ages...

How have you been friend? Life has been so full for us. We moved, churches and home. Maybe you've been over to our new blog? Anyhow, the baby is crawling and the boys are keeping me on my toes. They are going to be going to school half-days, even the three year old (pre-school). They will all get reading and writing at school and I'll still teach everything else. It's a year round school. The oldest starts on Thurs. and the other two in July. What else... We blogged about the church and house. Oh, I found out that all my sibilings want to leave Iowa. Haven't gotten any of them to church yet.

How are your kids? And the cat? Did you know we got a dog?

Truning into a novel...
Like the new(or maybe it's not so new) look on your blog.

Jennifer DID make that with her own hands. Isn't she talented???
