I don't have any new pictures yet. I am working away on my sweater. I got the right front piece done and then had to frog it. So I counted more carefully and started over on that. Finished that during the Super Bowl. Today I started the left front piece and am working away on that.
I also am still at work on the pillow covers. I have the front of one at least 1/2 way done. The yarn is so soft and such a rich color. Loving that. The yarn doesn't hold together super tight which makes knitting it a little more difficult. I keep getting the needle stuck through the yarn or I leave a little piece of it somewhere it ought not be. But the overall look is fine. I won't know if I'm keeping it or frogging it until I get done basically, so...
I haven't worked any more on either pink doily. So 1 out of the 6 projects is done and 2 more are making progress. Not too bad.
It's my week off from teaching my boys. I had a lovely lazy day of reading a book and watching My Fair Lady. I did also dust my living room. My wonderful husband helping me do the shopping this evening. I found my youngest son a new coat for $5 and a hat for $.50!
My primary goal this week is to relax. My other goal is to get my house clean by doing 1 or 2 rooms per day. This allows me to get it done without actually overworking. Hopefully I can stick to my plan. I'm always happier going back to school if the house has an overall cleaner feel to it.
Creativity is from God the Father of our Lord Jesus!
"Then the LORD said to Moses, 'See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability, and knowledge in all kinds of crafts---to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver, and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftmanship....Also I have given skill to all the craftsmen to make everything I have commanded you...'" Exodus 31:1-6

What am I about?
Well, primarily, following hard after the Father, God Almighty, and His Son, Jesus with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Other than that, I am a happily married, homeschooling mother. I have 4 sons. Two in college. Two in 10th grade.
"Wouldn’t it make an astounding difference, not only in the quality of work we do, but also in our satisfaction, even our joy, if we recognized God’s gracious gift in every single task, from making a bed or bathing a baby to drawing a blueprint or selling a computer? If our children saw us doing “heartily as unto the Lord” all the work we do, they would learn true happiness." - Elisabeth Elliot
"I long to accomplish great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of it's heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker." - Helen Keller
