It must be my day, I'm a Happy Mother!

     I've had a lovely day beginning with my church family, then lunch out with my family, and now a little time this evening with you. I'm so delighted to receive a wonderful Kitchen Aid mixer today. I've been wanting one for so long. I can't wait to try out the dough hook. Thank you dear husband of mine.
     It's been a rather hectic week. We seem to have a fundraising push on now that the school year is nearing completion. All parents and students are requested to help out in raising funds for the grade 7/8 class trip. As there is no longer any government funding available for such an endeavour, we work hard ourselves so our children can enjoy their trip. We had several events this week, and have another coming up next week. We have to raise 30,000 dollars , so we need a lot of events! Inspite of the extra work, I did find time to knit up a baby bib.
This was a quick project to do. I used Lily Peaches 'n Cream cotton yarn in the Violet Stripes colourway. I really love the way the stripes form so perfectly, and find the colour combination so pretty. If you visit Down Cloverlaine, you'll find patterns for many different bibs, all of which are free and they are so cute so you can't go wrong This pattern is called Rhonda's Delight Bib, and looks so much better in person! I hope to knit up many more as the Lord is blessing so many of my family members with new bundles of joy this year.
