New Granny Square Pattern
As the snow continues and we now miss our 16th day of school, I continue crocheting, knitting, cooking and washing dishes. Above is picture of the "Solid Granny Square" that I am hoping to work into a pillow cover. The pattern came from Heather's blog The Little Tin Bird @ www.thelittletinbird.uk.co. Thanks Heather. A big "yum yum" goes out the Lucinda Scala Quinn for her "Honey Mustard Chicken" recipe from her latest cookbook "Mad Hungry Feeding Men and Boys." It has become my new go to cookbook.
I am a mom of three beautiful children ages 14,13, and 9. I also work full time. I stay very busy with my family that also inculdes a busy husband that teaches and coaches. Our family is always struggling trying to balance work, school, church, and extra curricular activities. We live in Smalltown America, so many of the activities the children are involved in requires us to travel long distances, otherwise they would not have the opportunity to participate in many of the things they do. One of the trade offs of living in a remote area of the country.
I hope you enjoy your visit. I started this blog more for my enjoyment than to have other people read it. It is more of a diary of my life, which often gets too busy for me to blog about. I use it to say things about my family and express my thoughts on things I love and enjoy.
