It has been a while since I did a blog post but I decided to hop on the computer today and join in Ginny's yarn along. Since it has been a little while I have a few things to share.
First up I made this simple jar cozy for a canning jar I am using as a water bottle. I know that I haven't been drinking enough water lately so hopefully having this colourful drinking container will encourage me to drink water throughout the day.
Next up is this market bag (that I am planning on using as a beach bag) that I first shared with you all here. It turned out nice and I think it will come in handy. It is quite large and it will stretch to hold quite a bit. I didn't make the pouch as I didn't need it in this case but I am thinking of making some more of these to actually use as market bags and I will make them with the pouch.
And lastly I have finally finished my Bernat Mystery Afghan. It came together quite nicely. And whilel I was dreading seaming it all together it really wasn't all that bad. It took a little while (and of course it was less portable at that stage) but I eventually got it done.
LT seems quite happy with her new blanket.
Oh, and I almost forgot to share what I have been reading this week. I purchased some books for the girls for end of the school year presents and of course mom's got to read them first to see if they're okay;) So at night (in hiding) I have been reading The Betsy-Tacy Treasury by Maud Hart Lovelace. They are lovely stories and I hope my girls enjoy them as much as I do.
Also after seeing them mentioned on Elizabeth's blog I downloaded some books by Grace Livingston Hill onto my Kobo from Project: Gutenberg (This is a great site where you can get free ebooks of books that are in the public domain). You can also find these books on Amazon for the Kindle. I am currently reading Girl From Montana and finding it to be an enjoyable read.
