Loom boards.
The blanket board was made by my grandfather
more than 60 yrs ago. He made several blankets
on it while he was very sick and in the hospital.
The scarf board was made by my uncle. I don't know
how old it is, but I do know it's been around
as long as I have!
The same uncle made me my very own loom board
that is 2 ft. long a few years ago. He also made
me a circle one for hats.

Shelter from the rain
in the feeder!

As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.
Ps. 103:13

I will praise You, O Lord my God,
with all my heart;
I will glorify Your name forever.
For great is Your love toward me;
You have delivered my soul from the depths of the grave.
Ps. 86:12-13

I hope to spend the day knitting!
A perfect day to curl up in my chair with my needles
and some kind of sports on the tv!

a couple more sweaters and a scarf!

Salvation is found in no one else,

everyone of you,

The promise is for you
and your children
and for all who are far off-
for all whom the Lord our God will call."

Jesus came to give us an endless supply of life-
"...that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." (Eph.3:19)
Eternal life has nothing to do with time.
It is the life which Jesus lived when He was down here,
and the only Source of life is the Lord Jesus Christ.

"You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you...." (Acts 1:8)
Not power as a gift from the Holy Spirit; the power IS the Holy Spirit.
