Hello Friends

So I know it has been a bit, but honestly my last post was such amazing news I just couldn't bring myself to move it down the page. He is still reminds me often that his heart is happy. That just warms my heart so much.

I have been working to see the blessings in everything. Sometimes the blessings appear after something that doesn't seem like much of a blessing happens. My car was driving itself again yesterday. It was accelerating without my help. Now this isn't really a blessing, but I am thankful it happened when it did instead of at another time (so I guess it is a blessing). I was headed Christmas shopping, when a transport van pulled out in front of me. I was actually saying out loud in the car, how is this a blessing. Well, as soon as I could I passed him, and that is when my throttle cable got stuck. If he hadn't pulled out in front of me, it would have happened somewhere else where I may not have been able to safely get off the road. Two very kind people among the many that passed me, stopped and offered help. Riedmans sent technicians out to help me, they got my car running, drove me home, and took my car in. Riedmans has been very good to us through out the years. So my car will be fixed today, and maybe I can get my Christmas shopping finished.

I made something super cool last night. Something that made my daughter excited. I made tights and socks for her american girl dolls out of socks. The tights are out of knee socks, and the socks are out of crew style socks, I even make a pair of panty hose out of a knee high. There will be a tutorial coming. It is so amazingly simple.

these are the panty hose.
 I need to go get some more socks to use. I am also going to make some more crochet hats for her dolls

I want to make some in different colors. This one only took about 30 minutes, and it was the first time I'd ever made one.

My daughter was so impressed by the panty hose she said, "you are too crafty, woman!!" LOL

Have a blessed day!
