Something to Meditate On

                                                                                                         And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David:  Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
Matthew 21: 9

Yesterday was Palm Sunday and during this Passion week I will be reflecting on what Jesus did for me.

These are some of the things I made for a spring swap.  Two placemats in pink~my partner loves pink.  The others are two pot holders in spring colors.

These are some dishcloths and a dish towel that I made for a barter.

This weekend was a bit busy.  We are still working on the garden.  I transplanted alot of my seedlings and they are all in the greenhouse now.  Also worked on some yard clean up.  Leaves being raked and going into compost piles.  I need to build the enclosure for our composting leaves and be able to add to it.  Right now, it is just a pile.  I hope to have some good compost to put on our garden come fall.

We watched the movie Marley & Me Saturday.  I loved it.  So true to life.  The end of course was so sad.  I do not look forward to those days with our puppy.  She is a young, 3 year old, Beagle.  Loves to run and play and chase squirrels.  

I finished crocheting a bathroom rug this weekend and it's already in use.  I am now working on a mesh shopping bag like this one:

These are words from one of my favorite praise songs.

You do such beautiful crochet ,Ruthie.I'm looking forward to seeing how the bag comes out~those are so handy to use from collecting garden vegetables to throwing in the car for grocery shopping.

great crochet work. I will be curious to see your mesh bag. I think I may try one out, but I am so sure yours will be much better.

I love your crocheted items, they are just so pretty and perfectly made. I tried to make a shopping bag once, but I didn't have a pattern so it was something I finally unraveled. Such a treat to see your creations...Karin
