Odds and Ends
One of the things I love about Friday's is its the
day I stop working, well okay, I don't work as much,
but I get to fool with sewing projects. I got these patterns
from a wonderful little site called http://primitivebettys.blogspot.com
She has the cutest little cross stitch patterns and today,
I am going to turn these into those little needle keepers.
Here is another one I made this week.
I know they are for the fall, but I have always
thought I was to dumb too do cross stitch. I never
could finish a project or make it turn out.
Then as I watched my daughter-in-love try to knit
the other day I saw it wasn't that I was dumb, but
when you go to pick up a needle the baby sees it
as a signal to climb up in moms lap. So lets see,
my youngest is 14 so I can finally do counted cross
stitch. My oldest is almost 29 so there is a bunch of years
that I just couldn't sew because of a baby.
I also wanted to talk about one of my all time
favorite books. It is called Stepping Heavenward
by Elisabeth Prentiss.
I ran across a lovely site today called
She reminded me of Stepping Heavenward,
This is a book of letters and I just love books
with letters as the subject. I have learned so much
about being a Mother from this book.
I read it every spring so it must be about time to
read it again, because I have been thinking about
it so much.
Oh I almost forgot, I wanted to post a picture of my
first rug hooking project.
I do love rug hooking too. I think though, since
it is April I will be doing more gardening in my
field of dreams. It calls to me and keeps my attention
I hope you have a lovely Friday.
