Marvelous Monday…

Acting Balanced

Once again, it’s time to begin a new week!  As always, I’m joining Heather for the “Monday Quiz”.  What better way to start out the week than with a set of four questions to answer about myself?!  Some of this week’s questions are tough ones, so I had to put on my thinking cap today!

1. Do spelling and grammar mistakes annoy you?

Yes, incorrect spelling/grammar bothers me very much.  Perhaps it’s because I’m still “an educator” at heart.
2. If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?

I wish I could have witnessed the birth of our first grandchild.  My daughter had a very difficult pregnancy, and I spent a great deal of it with her–with the exception the birth, which was an emergency c-section.

3. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I don’t remember ever wanting to be anything other than a wife and a mother.  I loved playing “house” as a child.  I also enjoyed playing “school”, so perhaps, at some point, I wanted to be a “teacher”, too.
4. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

Listen carefully to your parents/grandparents.  They have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share, and much can be gained by just listening.

My question:

5.  Do you know how to knit, crochet, or sew?

Weekend Wrap Up:

Ed and I spent the weekend doing some things around the house.  We worked in the garden, then we began painting one of the porches on our house.  I trimmed some bushes in the yard, while Ed cleaned up his storage shed.  At the end of both days, we enjoyed spending time with our family, too!

  1. I never learned to knit but I do love to crochet and I do some sewing.

  2. I do both knitting and crocheting however I am allergic to sewing needles. I break out if I have to sew.

  3. I do knit and crochet and sew but only simple things. Still, it comes in handy. Sounds like a nice weekend for you and Ed. It’s still to early to plant a garden up here. 4 more weeks…

  4. Yes, I know how to sew. I’d like to learn to knit … a friend tried to teach me to crochet, but I just couldn’t get my brain and my hands to work together. 😉

    Sounds like you had a great weekend.

  5. Very good advice for a newborn! I crochet.

  6. My dream was always to be a mother and wife. Now I want to live in London for a year….but wife and mother will always be my heart. In answer to your question….yes, to all of the above, however I haven’t done any of then since my thirties.

  7. I don’t knit, but I know how to crochet, sew and cross stitch, although I’m not really able to do them anymore because of what I call my “fumblehands.” I still have and use both the first afghan I crocheted and the one grandma did in a different color while she was teaching me how to do mine.

  8. My mother-in-law is living with us for awhile as she recuperates from some setbacks following a new heart valve. We consider it a good sign that she was back to crocheting several weeks after her discharge from a week’s hospital stay.

    She has crocheted wonderful afghans for her kids, grandkids, great grands and spouses. I used to sew. Now I am just the “appreciator” of all those talents and skills of my sisters-in-law.

  9. I know how to knit and sew, but I have only completed a few small projects. I’m working on improving my skills.

  10. I used to crochet, but haven’t in years. A friend here said she’d help me ‘re-start’….it’s on my list : )

  11. I know how to cross stitch 🙂 I did crochet at one point but I couldn’t tell you anything about it now.

  12. I can sew, I’ve spent the past few weeks doing just that. Not great at it though. Hubby taught me how during first year of marriage. Strange I know. I can also crochet but haven’t since last fall. I would love to learn how to knit. I plan on teaching my niece, 5, how to sewing. We’ve started with simple needle and thread exercises. I put fabric on a frame and let her just go to town. She also made clothes for her barbie. For her birthday this month I got her a simple cross stitch to start learning. Figure teaching basics first then we will get to the sewing machine. 🙂
