Finished this Lacy Round Knit DIshcloth early this morning. This is one of my favorite patterns and so glad that I have it memorized as I was unable to find it again on the web :(
It's a very simple pattern, but it works up very pretty! I don't only use them as dishcloths, but also as doily/table mats! Thinking of making some of these up for Christmas gifts this year too!

Great news! I finished the spring semester with a 4.0 GPA and just found out I finished my summer semester classes with a 4.0 GPA!! Only 2 semesters of nursing classes left and I will have my RN! It's been such a long time coming and I am so ready for this!! I know it's going to be a lot of work, but I am ready for it!

Only 9 weeks until our youngest daughter becomes a Mommy! Can't wait for little Kennedy Rose to get here! So excited for her arrival!

Think I will go work on the sweater set that I am making for Kennedy and finish watching Syfy's Megashark vs. Kolossus....

They finally got the headstone up on mom's grave this past week. Sure did take them a long time. They did a really nice job on it though.
Can't believe it's almost May. Mother's Day is just a little over a week away, and this year it's going to be a tough one I have a feeling. This is the first Mother's Day we have to celebrate without our Mom. Been having a rough time of it all week, and I think it's just because it's that time of year, and she's not here anymore. My sisters and I are planning to get together at my dad's house Mother's Day weekend, if all goes well, so that we can all be there for one another, and with dad. We'll probably take flower out to put on mom's grave......I haven't been able to bring myself to go to the cemetery since mom's funeral. I need to do this, and maybe it will bring a little closure for me....May 16 will be 8 months mom has been gone, and it still feels like yesterday....they say time heals all wounds, how much time?

Hard to believe it's April already. Easter Sunday was spent quietly at home with the family. Missing my momma today. Going on 7 months since she passed away, and it's still hard to believe that she's really gone....
Great news this last week, I got my acceptance letter into the Advanced Placement RN program at KCC! I take my transition class this summer and start my nursing program in the fall. I am so excited and can't wait for this journey to come to a close. I have been working so hard on this for the last almost 4 years! Feeling truly blessed in my life right now!
Working on a baby afghan for my nephew and his wife, they are expecting in August, have another in the works for my youngest daughter who is expecting the end of September. So blessed to have time to work on these things right now!

Where has the time gone?? Can't believe that it's been 6 months since I last posted on this blog. Spring is now upon us, so glad to say Goodbye to the winter weather!! Haven't had a lot of crochet or knit time lately. Too busy with school and work to sneak much else in! I really must find some time to get some baby stuff done for my nephew and his wife and for my newest grandchild due in September.....just to pack a few more hours into each day!

Once again, it's been a very long time since I posted anything on this blog! Life just seems to keep getting in the way! My momma went home to be with Jesus Sept. 16, 2014 @ 12:47pm. We buried her on Sept 19, and it all still seems like a really bad dream that I can't wake up from. They say it will get easier in time, we shall see. I am hurting so right now and hopefully that hurt will ease in time too. Haven't had much time to do any crochet or knitting. School is in full swing and I am taking a full 12 credit hours this semester. What was I thinking??? :) That I just want to get school done and over with, that's what I'm thinking!!! Fall is here, and soon it will be winter........not looking forward to snow, cold and ice just yet!
