Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! A Jump to Philippians 3:12 - 14. Slow Sunday Stitching

Hello there!  I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with love, warmth, gratitude and laughter!

Philippians 3:12 – 14
My husband and I spent some time remembering his mother – and all the silly things she did to make us laugh – her dichos (sayings), her actions – simply her!  We also talked about the week I was diagnosed.

Then we put it away and enjoyed life!  I certainly can’t forget – but I can strain forward to what is ahead – always remember from where the LORD has brought me. 

In light of that, I added a twist to our Thanksgiving Gratitude Sharing!  I asked everyone to share their happiest memory as well.  Our table was filled with, “Ah, Mom, you should have given us more notice!”  Hogwash!  J  And then came the laughter.  It was so beautiful! 

Life is like that,
filled with hardship to be sure,
but also filled with
Life is good.

Dear Friends, this is my truth!

Slow Sunday Stitching
I've been crocheting a lot this weekend. Here is a butterfly crocheted scarf I made for my granddaughter!  Here is where I found the pattern!

I've decided to start a scrapghan from the yarn left over from projects.  Here's the beginning of my 2016-2017 Scrapghan!  


  1. beautiful! You are an inspiration. LeeAnna

  2. Love all your Bible verses out here. Beautiful yarns you're working with, for your granddaughter's scarf and the scrapgahn.

    1. Thank you! I'm learning so much as I go through Philippians! Yes, I loved that yarn - yet threw away the package. I need to remember to add that info in my blog! :)

  3. Family is what it's all about. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Wonderful new tradition!! Good for you. Cute scarf, and I love the start of your scrappy afghan.

    1. Thank you so much for your comments and encouragement! Yes, I love that new tradition! In fact, just the other day my son shared another funny moment from 2016! How cool is that? :) I'm excited about that afghan!

  5. Love your scarf. That yarn is gorgeous!!!

    1. Thank you for visiting and leaving such a kind comment! I believe the yarn is by Caron Simply Soft. One of my 2017 goals is to find a label organizational system that I may provide readers (and myself!) with the yarn and fabric information for the projects I use!

    2. Sorry Ana,
      I responded about the wrong scarf. The yarn I used was Unforgettable by Red Heart. The color was winery. I really enjoyed working with it!
