what gorgeous Christmas stockings!!! our instructor brought her stockings to our 1st class to give us ideas/samples to whet our appetite for Fairisle knitting: knitting w/2 colors (or more). each had its own personality!! several had eyelash yarns and glitter to add a little glitz for its position on the fireplace!!

This is the top of a (sample) 'memory box' that TPP will be making on Sat, June 9. I can't paint artistically, but will give it a try!
could these be square instead of round if no pattern is found???
These are a darling idea for the TPP Craft/Bake Sale!
mini (toddler) basketweave socks!!
how cute for Christmas gifts!!!
These are a few things I might look into trying to do for the ThePreemieProject Craft/Bake Sale in August.

it is amazing that when a person loses something valuable to them that they feel a part of their world has been devastated! while having the services of a computer and blog are fantastic, it is the feeling of having lost contact with friends that crushes the human spirit. the creative aspect of any person's psychi is valuable should they desire to express themselves in some acceptable manner. that is what i felt during the past week, having lost 'easy' access to my blog. i sincerely hope no one experiences what happened to me.
i forced myself to remain calm, knowing there HAD to be a way around all this!! for me, this is one record of what i am doing since i ended my 'working' phase of life. retirement activities are so very important, and this was especially valuable to me. trust in the LORD. patience is one of the strongest virtues...i practice it everyday!
