Monday Making

It's time for a Monday Making party!!

I spent the weekend away UNEXPECTEDLY with our foster baby
in the hospital.
I realized tonight that this party needed to HAPPEN!
Almost lost track of the days!

We're both home now.

Thankful for the friends and family that came alongside me
and made the weekend a LOT less stressful than it could have been.

Husband was out of that made it kind of tricky.

I was also thankful that I had accidentally left
toothbrush and paste in my knitting bag after a dentist appointment.
What a WONDERFUL feeling to find it after 
an emergency trip to hospital ended in a weekend stay!
The only reason the knitting bag ended up with me...
was that I was knitting when the emergency happened!!!

Another simple...but BIG thanks...
was that paramedics wrapped the baby in an afghan as we took off!
I LOVED having something comfy to sleep with at night!

This is on my floor at home.
I hope to get some sanity this week as I sew!!!
What are YOU making this week???


  1. Small blessings in the middle of chaos.
    So glad you are both home now.
