Garter snake.

Trying something new!
I went here yesterday:
and bought these items.
I am going to try my hand at spinning and dying!

When my heart was grieved
and my spirit embittered,
I was senseless and ignorant;
I was a brute beast before You.
Yet I am always with You,
You hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with Your counsel,
and afterward You will take me into glory.
Ps. 73:21-14

early blooming tulips
are coming up!

FO! finally!
I started this kids knit sweater last Oct.
The yarn had no label, but it is a very pretty green
with just a bit of 'sparkle'. It is soft and great
to work with.
The pattern is an easy 4-row-repeat that was fun to knit.
But for some reason, I just kept getting so
incrediably bored with it.
But now it is finished and I am quite happy with it!

Sacrifice thank offerings to God,
fulfill your vows to the Most high,
and call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you,
and you will honor Me.
Ps. 50:15
