Baby Blanket & Pin Cushion Jar


Rainbow Baby Blanket

Plymouth Encore Colorspun Yarn

I’ve been saving this yarn for almost a year.  It was to go in some Christmas packages last year, but I wanted to hang on to it for some reason.  Now I know why.  Granny had a premonition.  That charcoal-looking color is actually purple.  It showed up really dark in this picture.

Pincushion Jar

I whipped up this little pincushion jar yesterday in less than 30 minutes.  It’s a sweet little thing.

We took my Daddy out for a steak for lunch today with my sister and her husband.  I had grilled salmon with a baked sweet potato and wedge salad.  Perfect!  We stopped and did the grocery shopping on the way home.  Got home in time to see the last 25 laps of the race, and now it’s time for Three O’Clock Coffee.

Hope you all had a great Father’s Day.

    I called Daddy after our guests left yesterday. It was about 6 p.m.(your time). I talked to Daddy for a while and then talked to Mom for quite a while getting caught up on things.

    Our BBQ went off just fine and everyone had a good time. I'm off today so I've got a couple of errands to run and some laundry to do and that's it!
