Red, white, and blue

My cousin Nancy visited my mom last weekend, and Mom shared some Ice Drops with her.

Nancy emailed me to thank me for sharing. I love sharing my Ice Drops!

I told Nancy I'd be happy to make some more for her, and she asked if I could do some with a red, white, and blue theme.

Nancy only asked for three, but I think I'll do some more. They look so bright and cheerful!

Joanne finished her shawl, and Sophia cheerfully modeled it for us.

I finished a mini shawl for Kara, and I've started one for Sophia. Doesn't every little girl need a shawl?

Some of my dishcloths were in pretty sad shape, so it was time to knit some new ones. I started the blue dishcloth quite a while ago, but I didn't feel any urgency to finish it until this week... after I finished to coral one!

The kids love playing games on Papa's iPad. I have the same games on my iPad, but when Papa's around, Grandma's iPad is not worth anything!

We get pictures from daughter Carol's trip on a regular basis. I'm not sure what everything is, but I'm sure I'll learn all about the trip when they return.

The group spent three days in London, three days in Paris, and then headed to Florence by train.

Carol loved the changing of the guard at Buckinham Palace, and she said they got to see Prince Charles and Camilla.

I'm not sure how long they'll be in Florence. They will head to Rome next, and then they'll be home on Thursday. It's been a whirlwind trip for them, and I'm sure it's been memorable as well!


  1. I don't where to begin I love the red white and blue it's perfect! And I just what a documentary on London tower those pictures are great❤️and then those beautiful shawls 😀 you have to be farming your work out how do you find the time?

    1. Ha! I should farm out some of my work. I'd go through my stash a lot more quickly!

  2. Sweet models. The family keeps you busy, good there’s another ice drop enthusiast!

  3. I remember a rhyme we used to sing - ‘red, white and blue, the dirty kangaroo .........’. I can’t remember the rest which is probably a good thing!

  4. I'm pretty sure the middle picture is of Sacre Coeur in Paris. I loved going there!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
