Saturday's Song. Sunday Slow Stitching. Stash Report. Book Dating.

Hello there,
Alas, I'm a day late posting, but not a dollar short!  My apologies!
I hope you enjoy this post!

Saturday's Song
This song spoke to me as I realized that, here lately, my biggest blessings have come via tears.  
 Here is the link to the song's lyrics!  

Sunday Slow Stitching

I'm continuing to enjoy Maria's Spring Flower Granny Square CAL (Maria's Blue Crayon).  Undoubtedly, I fallen behind...How do people keep up?  Either way, this afghan is sure to be a cheerful addition to my home!  
I've learned the "join as you go" method and am loving it!

Prayer Shawl #7
I started a shawl using a basic pattern, but I just couldn't keep working on it,
so I switched to one with more texture!  I really like this one...it's nice and thick, yet light.  
Yarnspiration's Caron Cakes  works up very nice and light!
One Year of Stitches.
Progress continues on my  #1yearofstitches.  
I prayerfully stitch every day and God has really been speaking to me.  You can follow my daily progress on my Instagram account.



Stash Report
I bought   6 yards of more 30's prints at 50% off.  Like I've said, I'll continue stash building as long as the fabric sale at my LQS continues!

No changes in my Yarn Stash!
I also realized my numbers were off, so I think I fixed them.

My first book for the 2018 Library Love Challenge   that joined is finished!   I had indeed read Jennifer Chiavernini's The Union Quilters before, but so enjoyed reading it again!

I started More Than A Hobby by David Green with Dean Merrill.  It's such a great read!

The Story The Bible As One Continuing Story of God has been such a blessing to me.  I'm glad our church is reading it!

  2. I like the textured shawl and the afghan. Everything I've seen made with the Caron Cakes yarn has been wonderful. Something about the way they use the colors and richness of the yarn makes every project special.

    1. I enjoy them. Admittedly, I did scan the battle scenes...too much for me...even in this book. Jennifer's books are so inspiring on many different levels. Take good care!

    1. Thank you! The verses are the first activity of my morning devotions and settle my mind. God speaks so clearly to me during this time. :)

  6. I love the texture of that shawl too. Now here's how little I know - is that knitted or crocheted? Lucky you to have a quilt store with 50% off!

    I read the Union Quilters quite a few years ago and enjoyed it. I like most of her books.

    1. The shawls are crocheted. I'm using a shell pattern. It's easy, fun and comes out so lovely! Yes, am taking advantage of their sale - and sewing a ton to keep my numbers down! :) My job includes quite a bit of driving this semester, so I ordered another of the Union Quilters on audio via my local library! Really inspiring to me to quilt!
