A Shawl, A Family Tradition, A Surprise and a Horticultural Phenomenon

Finished another prayer shawl!

Continued a family tradition started by my grandmother.
my DD and I made apple butter

My sweet thoughtful husband brought me home an unexpected kitchen surprise. I have always wanted one of these. He is so sweet, he picked it up on a recent business trip. I feel like a professional chef in my kitchen with my knives at the ready. No more dull blades for me...YEA!!!!
and last but miraculously not least...it's still blooming folks. 
I think my Christmas cactus is some mutant alien strain of horticultural bizarreness. 
It may never stop blooming!!

My week in review!

That shawl is just beautiful!! What a labor of love! I envy the knives--sorry, but I do. ...and I haven't had apple butter since I was a young girl! It surely looks delicious.

I am so enjoying the cross I received from you. It is so perfect on my pale yellow wall, with the oak furniture. I look at it everyday and I am so grateful for it!

There's just something about homemade that is so nurturing ... so wholesome. I love the shawl, a wee bit jealous you (or anyone) can crochet (or is it knit?)!

I also smile to myself when I do something domestic that looks/feels like my mother (now living with the Lord). I think she smiles too.
