SEAT WORK

Remember in school, when the teacher gave you seat work? You were supposed to sit quietly and do worksheets or questions or usually something boring? Well, as I am recuperating, I've been doing my fair share of seat work. Some is not finished, so I can't show you yet, but here are two of my endeavors so far.
I saw this Swiffer cover on a web site and thought how neat it was. It's made of Lily Brand's Sugar n Cream cotton yarn. Just put it on the Swiffer and dust or mop and toss it in the wash when you're done. No more buying refills and throwing them away. How Green can you get!


If you're interested in making your own go to sheep of a different color and click on patterns. They have instructions for knit and crochet. This one is knitted. I plan to make several more because they are so fast and easy.
Here's another baby blanket for the Weecare program at church for the indigent mothers. The colors aren't showing up very pretty, but its, pink, lavendar and white. Very soft.


This cutie is youngest grandchild, Morgan, who came to visit yesterday. She's very intent on watching Dora the Explorer. Isn't she sweet? She's all cuddled up in a quilt and cozy as can be.





And finally ... for those who say dogs and cats don't get along, take a gander at this! Boomer, my shih tzu and Lily, the cat all curled up in one bed for a long winter's nap. How cute is that?

I am going to try to start posting more regularly now that I'm feeling so much better. Hope your week is great and full of blessings. Nerm

Oh Nerm....I love this entry. As you know I love the whole Swiffer cover idea. I think that is super crafty of you.
As far as that grand-daughter of yours....she is PRECIOUS! She is so special to me, only God knew that I needed such a tresure in my life.
The picture of the cat & dog is great! That cracks me up and is a priceless photo!!!!
Happy that you're blogging again...

Nerm,
I am so happy that you are feeling better! Thanks for the kind comments, we can definitely do the ghost tour next year! We're going to the Pumpkin Fest this Saturday and then out to Carnton for the haunted ghost tour! Fun and busy weekend! I loved the swiffer cover and might need to make one myself! Your granddaughter is so pretty and very sweet looking...you are so blessed! Well, you take care and recover some more and let me know if you feel up to getting together! Love and hugs, Victoria Lynn

Glad to hear you are doing well Nerm!
Do the crochet swiffer covers you made work the same? That would be cool to have some that you can just wash!
Thanks for the compliment on the pillow, it was fun to turn one of her drawings into emwxpbroidery.

Hi Nerm,
Glad you are feeling better :) and you have been BUSY making a sweet baby blanket and the swiffer cover..that's funny. Kailee loves to watch Dora also and when I pick her up after school she watches a little TV. We also watch WORD GIRL and I'm learning new words with Kailee:)
Too cute with your fur babies all snuggled together:)
Take care.
