I have NO 'have to do' projects on the needles right now! So I am just playing around with yarn. Made this pair of mittens with some tapestry wool.
This big bull frog was out getting warmed up the other day.
The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Gal. 5:6
I received these squares yesterday. THANK YOU, MILLIE!! Each granny square is beautifully crocheted, then backed with felt! They will be put together with other donated squares for an afghan.
Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father." So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God as made you also an heir. Gal. 4:6-7
Just look at this fabulously wonderful yarn that I received yesterday!! THANK YOU, AMY!! I plan to let it sit here beside me for a few days so it can talk to me and let me know what it wants to be!!
He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.... For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Cor. 12:9-10
This morning's sunrise. "Red sky in morning, Sailor's take warning..." Yep, there's a snow storm on it's way!
My newest project. This is just a simple mitered square. It should end up being about 48". Worked in Red Heart Windsor blue with a few stripes of varigated thrown in. On #11's. The teacher who helped me launch my charity work asked if I would make an afghan for the schools silent auction. Of course I said "yes!". This fund raiser is closer to my hear than most. This will be raising money to send the 5th graders to camp. I know that when my kids were that age, I was a single, working mom and there is no way I could have afforded the cost to send them with the help of the PTO. So I am happy to help out other parents.
Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts. 1 Cor. 14:1
Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has declared in his heart to give, not relunctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Cor. 9:6-7
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set His seal of ownership on us, and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 2 Cor. 1:21:22
