Found Picture - Memorial Day 2005

Avenue of Flags Posted by Hello

I just found this picture on our little-bitty memory card (holds all of 8 pics). The location is Floral Haven Memorial Gardens in Tulsa/Broken Arrow. The staff and volunteers at the Garden put up servicemen's flags that have been donated just for this purpose. The boys and I have infant cousins buried in the Garden of Angels, so to give my boys an understanding - we decorate their gravesite. We then walk around to read the names on the flags leading back to our car. The Civil Air Patrol Cadets do a mock Changing of the Guards that the boys like to watch. Next Year, I will have pictures of my two Scouts folding these same flags for retirement.

Egypt at Christmas

Dh and I may have an opportunity to visit Egypt just after Christmas. Please pray that the Lord will bless us beyond measure and allow us this once-in-our-lifetime opportunity to teach "Purpose Driven Life" to the Christian Churches of Egypt.

The Fish

The Fish will be returning in November! I'm developing a pattern or three for MagKnits using them as a base.

Thanks for the support everyone, it means a LOT! This is the first pattern that I ever wrote and I did it on my own! I'll keep you all informed of my progress, and perhaps I'll show pictures along the way too! (small and inconclusive tho!)

Its Wednesday!

Yippee! That means that the week is half over. And considering that its a short week to begin with - GLORIOUS!! (can you hear the Angels singing?)

Tomorrow, there shall be photos! I need to weave in the ends on my Spiral baby blanket and block it for its photo shoot, so it may not make it in time - I'll try.

I want to make another spiral soon! I loved it!

I have a question now -

If I create entirely new patterns from patterns that I created from inspiration, how far back do I owe credit?

Discuss in the comments, please?

ps - I only have a 4 day week next week too!!!!
