A little sunshine

The following quotation precedes the February calendar pages in my Days of Hope journal.

Jingles was right there this afternoon to soak up the sun as it peeked through gray skies.

This first day of February has been a very busy but good day -- school, baseball practice, grocery shopping, and coffee with friends. In between all that, I managed a few more rows on the granny stripe baby afghan.

11 more colors equalling 22 more rows and then the border. Hopefully I can finish it in the next couple of days.

If you are getting walloped with the predicted snowstorm, I hope that you are safe and sound at home. Sending a little sunshine your way. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Yep we're here in the midst of one of the greatest midwest blizzard storms ever - at least that's how the news is describing it and I believe it. It's been a crazy day weather wise, but I'm loving it. We're all cozy and warm inside our home and not going anywhere until Thursday at the earliest. No school, no work. Those who have decided to venture out, have found themselves stranded on the roads for hours. That's not for us, so we stay put. :)

The baby afghan is lovely.
Have a good rest of the week,
Linda

I love the baby afghan. I haven't made an afghan in ages. Maybe this is the year to make another. My friend's granddaughter just had a baby but I know I won't get one made for her baby. I planning to make one of the little denim jacket redos. I found a newborn size at the thrift store today.

We are expecting freezing tonight but we are much better off than those stranded by the snow and ice.

Blizzard warning here and maybe 12 inches when I wake up in morning. The sex of the new baby on the way is a boy... We can now start buying for a him.

Staying warm...cats are tucked in chairs sleeping.

Dearest Tammy,

I'm so glad for your rays of sunshine! Enjoy whatever is available and indeed, learn from Jingles as they can teach us a lot about life.

Lots of love from a rainy Georgia,

Mariette

Boy, it does sound like a busy day for you. Glad it was a good busy... Your afghan is looking just lovely. I am thrilled to see how much you have managed to get done. GOOD FOR YOU!!! Good that you are seeing some sun. We have been cloudy for days now. It looks a bit brighter out there today... No bad weather here. I talked with a friend who said it was 17 degrees in San Antonio. It was 70 two days ago. BBUURRRR!!!
Hope you find time to work on the afghan today!!

Love ya,
Renee

Sitting here warm and cozy inside. Snow hit hard yesterday and last night... about 10"-11" here. Work and school closed - so we will be digging out today. Love the quote! Have a wonderful day!

Hi, Tammy! Thanks so much for the sweet birthday wishes, my friend! It was a wonderful day--my family really took good care of me!

Love that quote...what an amazing woman.

Your afghan is beautiful. I'm working on one right now, too...I'm calling it a crazy quilt, as I'm using all the balls of various leftover yarn I have...it's circular, and I'm having so much fun with it! Going to be really big--a good one to snuggle up under!

Hope you're having a beautiful, sunshine-filled day, dear friend!

lovely afghan colors! I saw a lady the other day at the mall. It looked as if she was waiting for someone. While she was on her own, she opened a bag, pulled out yarn, and started crocheting...without looking at her work!! My grandma does the same. Do you? I think you do; all crocheting pros seem to have that ability.
Have a lovely day!

THE AFGAN IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL. LOVE ALL THE DIFFERENT COLORS. SOUNDS LIKE A BUSY DAY BUT ONE YOU ENJOYED. THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF A BUSY DAY, ENJOYING YOURSELF.
IT IS CLOUDY HERE TODAY BUT WE HAD IN THE HIGH 70'S YESTERDAY. IT WAS GREAT. HOPE EVERYONE IN THE STORMS STAY SAFE AND WARM.
LOVE KAY

Your blanket is coming along nicely. I love the colours you have chosen. Are knitting and crochet commonplace among Kuwait ladies? Somehow I always think of it as being a very British thing to do.

Hi Tammy...I could never do an afghan like that. I'm not talented that way at all. Great job. Jingles looks adorable, as always.

Tammy, thanks so much for always stopping by and commenting. Love seeing when you visit! Susan
