Winter Woolies and other Warmings

It started raining on Friday evening and has been mostly cold and wet all weekend.  The winter woolies have been hauled out of the top of my cupboard and are slowly making their way into my daily attire.  I must say I am not mad about winter clothes so am hoping to add some soft jersey colours in this year like pink, soft green and such.  Whether I will attempt to make any for myself is a big question?  I may just be up for a new challenge I will see.  I am currently busy making a “Granny Crochet” poncho for my 5 year old daughter.  I tried crocheting with the fluffy wool my mom sent me but it got a little confusing seeing my stitches in all the fluffiness so I will attempt to knit something with that wool instead.  While busy crocheting yesterday, my cat decided to come hijack my wool basket and it was just too cute for me to throw her out, needless to say I did not get any more crocheting done until much later in the evening. 
In the afternoon we visited our friends. My friend is very happy with her tea cosy.  This is the photo she took of it.
We had some of her lovely Danish treats with coffee, they are called "Aebleskiver".  Friends are a blessing.

My sister and her children came around for supper last night; I made pancakes and a creamy chicken as a filling.  It was delicious and we had a good time around the dinner table talking and laughing.  We got to watch the video taken of my dad at the hospital, it was good to see him and we love him dearly.  It has been a very worrying time with my dad in hospital but we are not without hope and are trusting for a miracle.  Thankfully we have a Father in heaven who hears our every prayer.  When my eldest daughter went on her first school tour, she was just eleven or twelve years old.  I prayed over that big bus taking them to Mpumalanga.  I prayed for the driver, the tyres of the bus, the engine, you name it I think I had it all covered.  The Bible says we are to pray without ceasing –
1 Thes 5v17 “Rejoice always, 17(AA) pray without ceasing, 18(AB) give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”  I have my dad covered in prayer.
If you are not praying for a need, be sure be giving thanks  and even when you are praying for a need, be thankful too.  Have a blessed week.

  1. I was so busy admiring the GORGEOUS colour combinations in your poncho I didn't even see the cat for a few moments! Gorgeous! Raymond is not allowed near my wool because I am a meanie ad because he sheds white fur over everything... all of my garmens end up with a bonus 10% of siamese fur!

    Can't wait to see that finished, and thank you for the rush of colour!

    Have a lovely week!
