DSCN8453A Discovery: if I place an order with Hawthorne Threads in the morning on Friday, my package arrives in the mail on Saturday!  Brilliant.  I feel incredibly lucky.DSCN8455DSCN8445DSCN8454What this all means is that I’m having a wonderful fabric-y weekend!  My best friend has been keeping me company while I snip and sew.DSCN8450It’s been a long week at work – our decisions went live on Wednesday and the rest of the week has been spent fielding calls.  There are the Joyful and the Miserable and those caught in between on the Wait List.  I take small knitting projects to work and at lunch find a quiet place to unwind.DSCN8447Finnish baby socks knit from Spud and Chloe super wash.  Merino and silk – so smooshie.  The pattern is one that I return to again and again as it provides a baby with really warm toes and legs.  They don’t fall down – they truly ARE kick-off proof.   And that neopolitan ice cream color – it’s as delicious as yarn can get.

We head into Holy Week and I am attempting to find a small still place, an altar, within.  It’s been a roller-coaster year in terms of personal relationship.  Religion is not something normally discussed here, but I do rely heavily on my spiritual life and my faith.  This week, more than ever, it’s a good thing for me to reread, revisit, revamp my gratitude list.  I know that my life is blessed.
