anniversary shrug


left sleeve

full view

I made this shrug in just three days. It is a raglan shrug started from the neck down. There are exactly 25 rows in each sleeve... one for every year that Tom and I have been married.

I plan to use a silver ribbon to close it with. I am excited about wearing this to the banquet. I think I will wear a black top and skirt with it!

works in progress

I am working on a shrug to wear at our anniversary banquet. I will post a photo when it's finished. Our wedding colors were burgundy and silver and I am making a burgundy shrug that I will most likely wear with a black skirt and blouse.

I finished up 24 hats for Christmas presents for the orphanage. I will find out from Judi how many we have altogether. It was easy to sit and make a hat while we watched movies. I hope that the children enjoy the things we have made!

long time no post

I have been doing more knitting than crocheting. I am taking a break and resting my hand.

We are looking forward to Thanksgiving. It feels strange to note that this is Nathan's last Thanksgiving at home. I bought all the ingredients to make stuffing and he is very excited about that. I am just going to do a pork roast, veggies, stuffing and several desserts.

Out next big thing is our 25th wedding anniversary banquet on December 13th. We are currently in the planning stages. It is hard to believe that we have been married that long. I honestly don't feel old enough. Of course it helps to get married at 18!

Social Work!

Spencer and I were at the orphanage tonight. It was great to get back to work. We will do a Christmas party for the kids on the 22nd of December. That means I have to get to work on more hats! We had over 40 kids tonight. I don't know how many will show up for the Christmas party.

still crocheting and lots of praying

It seems as if there is a lot to pray for. The director of our school has a mother who is very ill. We are very concerned for Tanya and her mom.

We know people who are facing major decisions, others who are ill and others who are interested in coming here to work. As I sit and crochet I take all of these things in and pray over them. Just like my blog title I pray and crochet... everday!
