Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Stash Report - More in the Red with Yarn,

Saturday's Song

I've shared this week's song, Reckless Love by Cory Asbury, recently, but I felt led to share it again because it is on my heart this morning.  Additionally, I felt led to do a bit of research on the background of this week's song and learned that his use of the word "reckless" to describe God's love caused a bit of a stir in the Christian community.  After listening to his response on this video after he sings, I can only humbly praise God for being so reckless in His love for me - for all of us.  


May we all learn to love recklessly.   Here is the link to the song's lyrics as well as another video with the lyrics showing.  Some have mentioned that they like to read the lyrics.  :)



Sunday Slow Stitching

Maria's Spring Flower Granny Square CAL from Maria's Blue Crayonis moving along.  I have decided to work up a "bouquet" of flowers  first and then join them.  I love how they look all together!  I picked up a green and blue by Caron to finish this project.  



I cut out the final pieces of my grandbabies Felt Advent Calendar and made a bit of stitching progress!  I'm so excited as I know I have been working on it at least for a little more than a year!


One Year of Stitches.
Progress continues on my  #1yearofstitches.  Increasingly, I'm finding that it's a great way to begin my prayer and Bible study time.  You can follow my daily progress on my Instagram account.


Stash Report
I have gone deeper in the red with my yarn stash.  However, I may yet get in the black - as a good friend said, "Where there's life, there's hope!"  

Sadly, another brick and mortar locally owned shop is going out of business and has reduced their prices.  So, I paid them a visit - and here's my finds.  


This beautiful yarn by Uneek will go nicely with my bit of bling yarn!
 These will also go nicely together!  I love how this superwash by Elysian works up!

UPDATED:  2/11/18 to include new fabric purchases.

Here's my new fabric purchases this week.  I needed the off-white Bella solid for a project.  The other two?  I just liked - a lot!  :)

  1. I don't blame you for stocking up since the shop is going out of business. They can be few and far between. Great orange fabric and you're still in positive fabric numbers!

    1. Right? It's sad that they are going out of business, but I completely understand their reasons. Meanwhile, I'll stock up. Yes, I'm still in positive fabric numbers. Working hard to stay there! :)

  2. We sing that at our church where we are referred to as "glorious messes".

  3. It never hurts to pad up the stash....you never know when you'll need it. I like all your projects, especially the Year of Stitching.

    1. With 40%-50% fabrics still available, I'm definitely stocking up. Thank you! I am really enjoying the Year of Stitching! I have a feeling I'll need a bigger hoop! :)

  4. I'm not sure whether positive numbers means you used more than you purchased (that's it for me) or you bought more than you used. I guess it depends on whether you're trying to increase or reduce your stash. Perspective is everything!
    I like your purchases, too. The colors are soft and dreamy. They are so yummy, they will probably go in any project.
