yarning along toward Christmas
I'm joining Ginny's yarnalong today, making another crocheted bag to use up my yarn. The pattern is so simple and enjoyable to work on. This one will be slightly smaller by four rows - we'll see how it turns out.
A library is a constant drop-off point for unwanted books, and all kinds of things come through our place. I picked this up last year, and I'm just finding out what a treasure it is.
Filled with recipes, prayers and meditations, old carols and their histories, Bible readings, quotations - a feel-good book for sure. And you may recognize Edith Schaeffer's The Hidden Art of Homemaking next to it, which always always puts things back in perspective for me.
I'm also perusing this magazine
which was given to me. How to choose which cookies to bake? Our Christmas party at the library is Friday, and I'll be making something from these pages tomorrow, if I make up my mind!
Thanks to Ginny!
