I finished this tea cozy last week for a friend's birthday. It is my new favorite thing. I had planned to make crochet roses for the top but they just weren't giving me the look I wanted. So, I ended up putting a few of my own wool roses on top and that made the difference! I used this pattern as a guide for the base.
A few more mini flowers were made for a special order. They are to go on little girls' shawls.
Here's a picture of the group around the table for the aforesaid birthday celebration. We spent the afternoon sharing various books we were reading and working on our knitting projects. Good fun!
Another friend passed along this bookmark which I was so excited about! Since Rosamunde Pilcher is an author I recently discovered and really enjoy, now I can find some other books that are similar!
I haven't really finished any books this past week -- I'm just in the middle of a bunch! I thought I would share a few CD's we have been listening to and really like.
Scripture memorization has been suffering around here of late and friends suggested a few resources to help me out.
Scripture 2 by Lisa McCann is our current favorite! My kids and I LOVE this CD. Lisa has compiled several complete Scripture verses into each song around a theme and set them to lively music. She also includes the same songs a second time on the CD but this time set only to acoustic music. I think this can also be purchased directly from Lisa McCann.
Multiplication Unpluggedis completely unrelated to Scripture memory, but this is the CD that we are trying to listen to this summer to help everyone with their skip counting and multiplication facts.
And that's all for this week! You can find more ideas over at Ginny's Yarn Along.
