Lately...

Hola mis amigas!

September started off with a flurry of things to do and places to be.  Here we are already halfway through it and I haven't made a single post.  I haven't had time to take any pictures and I can't make a post without pictures.  What fun would that be?

I have a couple of things I'm working on at the moment.  
I'm trying to finish up this shawl I started on a year or so ago.  It's a granny stitch shawl that I was going to do with just those little balls of remnants that always seem to hang around.  Now I'm trying to finish it with whatever yarn I have on hand whether it's a remnant or not.  So far I'm liking the way it's taking shape.  All I lack is the edging. I can't decide what to do.  


This is a knit baby blanket I started on recently.  I'm following this pattern.  I really should get some stitch markers though because I'm having to backtrack a lot to correct a stitch where I knit but should have purled.  Ugh.  Beginner knitter problems. 

I haven't picked this up in a couple of days. 
 I'm making it for my future grandbabies so there's no rush.

 I had to skip my morning coffee a couple of days ago because hubby and I had to fast for a physical we had scheduled for that day.  We both had caffeine headaches all day.    It's amazing how much our bodies miss our morning brew.  My coffee tasted extra good the following morning.

  I'll give you an update on my breast biopsy.  I had a breast biopsy done on  my right breast two weeks ago at a breast cancer center.  I had a lot of anxiety about it but I got a call last Wednesday and they said the microcalcifications were benign. No cancer cells were found, thank the Lord.  I have to go back in six months to get another mammogram so they can take another look at it.  Hopefully all will be well then too.  


The news was a big relief to me.  It's amazing how much something like this can send you into a spiral of worry.  Even though you try not to, it's inevitable.  Your mind starts to think about the what if's and you start preparing yourself for the worst.  Thank goodness it all worked out for the best.  Thank you for all your well wishes and prayers.   I feel very blessed.

  1. Dear Beca ... Praise the Lord on your results. You have been in my thoughts and in my prayers so very much lately. Such good news. I know what you mean about that morning cup of coffee. It is an important beginning to my day, along with my Bible and my Daily Devotional time. Homespun Hugs ♥ Teri

  2. Praise the Lord! Brilliant news.
    I've been following the flylady system recently to help me achieve more, it's the dressed to shoes before going to get my morning cuppa that I find hard. The soon as I'm downstairs I'd waste time so for me it's the right thing, just hard to follow through as I need my tea!
    I've not taken many pictures recently or blogged either. Life gets busy but not always blog worthy I guess.
    Take care and rejoice, life is precious.
    Ģod is good all the time and all the time God is good. Ref God's not Dead film. Strange quote when you see it wrtten out, but it starts and ends with the same sentiment, comforting x

  8. Hi Beca, oh I'm so relieved and happy that everything is ok with you!! I love all of your little projects you are working on right now. I find that crocheting is so much easier than knitting although I do love a knitted scarf! Have fun with crafting.

  10. Oh my goodness! You've been through a lot of worry, and I'm so glad everything is fine. I've been there, when I found a lump in my breast. My kids were just young and, yes, my mind went to places I did not want to go. All was fine, however, but a scare nonetheless. Your knitting and crochet makes are lovely. What a pretty shade of pink for the baby blanket. I'm trying to decide on a knitting project now that fall is just around the corner and I think I can bear to have a knitted project across my lap again ;) Take care Beca,
    Wendy

  11. Oh so glad to read your test results! What a relief. Are you really a beginning knitter? The pink blanket is beautiful! As is the shawl. Is the shawl knit or crochet? I'm thinking of taking a beginning knitting class in October. I'm all thumbs though. And left handed on top of it and people sometimes have trouble teaching things backwards. :)

  12. Hi Beca - so very glad your test results were negative! I'm sure you are feeling so relieved and happy. Love your beautiful projects. The knitting is so pretty. I only crochet, but I love the delicate results of knitting. Maybe I will learn one day. Hope you are enjoying some cooler weather. Sending hugs xo Karen
