Life has been more than a little taxing this year. My husband and I have suffered several losses, one right after another. This has also stirred up several health problems that I have. I got a small taste of what Job went through. It is hard to say that God is good all the time when the rug has been pulled out from under you. It is so easy to say when things are going good but when the going get tough ...... well .... that's another story. I don't understand it and can't trace God's hand but I have to trust His heart.

It amazes me just how quickly some people lie and just how fast those lies are believed. What is worse, these were people that I held in high regards.
Anyway ...... enough about life. Now onto the fun things :)

This is a Sleep Mask that I knitted. It is the first time that I tried this stitch and I really like the yarn. It is Sugar 'N Cream Country Print.

I have a lot of problems sleeping and have been looking for one of these for some time. I was so happy when I found this pattern on Ravelry. It didn't take long to knit up at all. I know that it isn't perfect but it will do the job.

This is my Spring Shawl. It is made out of recycled yarn. I wanted a cotton yarn but didn't want the dishcloth cotton so ...... I headed to my LYS and found this. It's Knit One Crochet Too 2nd Time Cotton. I would use this yarn again.

Now I'll have to see just how long I hang onto it. My daughter likes it too.

This is a cell phone case I made for my daughter.

I would watch her go through this routine every time it rang.
She would search through her hoodie pockets and the pockets on her jeans saying "What did I do with my cell phone?"

It was time that Mom stepped in and did something. I put a hook on it so it hangs on her belt loop. No more searching through her pockets.

(I'm proud of myself !)

I knitted this dishcloth just because I liked it.

Don't think that I could ever use it.
More than likely it will become a Christmas gift.

I found the pattern on Ravelry.
(I love that place:)

This is another Ravelry pattern ..... and another one that I made just because I liked it ...... and another one that will be gifted out :)

This is another Ravelry pattern but this one is crocheted.
Yep ...... it's going to be gifted.

This dishcloth was the March Monthly Dishcloth Knit-Along.

I love it. It's called 'The Empty Tomb'.

Not sure what I'm going to do with it.

This was the mid-March Monthly Dishcloth Knit-Along.

It's cute!

This is another one that will be gifted out too.
