Just hanging out

A Cloudy Rainy Day

  We went to the store to pick up the sale items.  Went to Wal-mart to pick up a few things.  Then to the Dollar store to pick up kitty liter since our Wal-mart does not carry it anymore and we found this great little shop called the Little Red Hen.  It is a quilt shop and beyond.  It is so wonderful. They have beautiful quilts hanging in there and just tons and tons of fabric, yarn and pretty things.  We are going to try to take a beginners quilting class in October.   We came home and since it s raining again we decided to work on our crocheting.  I have wanted to learn forever and so has Court.  So a few weeks back when I did my sister swap with Danielle she was so sweet and sent me yarn, instructions and all to make a dish cloth.  I started right away.  I am hooked.  My first one was funny.  I am now on my 3rd one and they are getting better.  I will show you another time.  So now I am trying to teach Court.  It is so fun to be cozy on the couch with my littlest baby (not really a baby any more but you know what I mean).  She is starting to get it down.  She is definitely my domestic one.  She loves to bake, cook, clean and now crochet.  I just love how different God made each of my kids. They each have such wonderful talents.
