Hearts and more hearts - who doesn't enjoy working up quick and easy projects for your home. Some projects can be worked in thread instead of yarn creating pins or small gift items to tuck inside cards. How sweet is that?
Unfortunately we don't have any of our old patterns available at this time. Within the next few weeks we'll not only bring back some popular oldies, but create new patterns for your enjoyment!
Easter is a special holiday to me. First and foremost, it represents Christ dying on the cross to pay for my sins - and for yours too! But I also love the traditions of Easter eggs, the bunny rabbit, and all that. They're fun and who doesn't experience joy in finding a pastel colored egg hiding in the tall grass. I could go on and on about this holiday...
4th of July
Red, white and blue! It says it all doesn't it? Pride of country, bright stars, and fireworks bursting in the night sky. I also think of those who fought for the freedoms we enjoy. Freedom is not free and peace is not just the absence of conflict.
There is controversy as some Christians don't believe in celebrating Halloween. Personally I believe its what we focus on. For me, I like to think of Halloween as good clean fun. Kids dressing up in what they'd like to be professionally or little girls dressing as princesses, or their favorite heroine. Candy - lots of it. Bad for the teeth but sometimes good for the soul. And pumpkins carved into jack-o-lanterns, fall leaves, and a bit of mystery and intrigue all thrown into one itty bitty holiday. For the kid in all of us!
I can smell the pumpkin pie and the turkey roasting. Thanksgiving is so un-presumptuous. Really if you think about it, all we do is put on a feast and enjoy. No gifts are exchanged and no long and arduous planning. It's a time when family and friends get together and break bread. And it's also a time when many of us reflect on the past year and are more aware of the blessings we've been bestowed.
Christmas - it must be everyone's favorite holiday. Who doesn't love the twinkling lights on a Christmas tree decked out in beautiful ornaments. Or the anticipation of brightly wrapped packages under a tree, or neighbors exchanging baked goodies. And the Christmas cards that arrive in the mail. It's all so joyous. But the most joy for me is focusing on a little manger in the town of Bethlehem thousands of years ago when Christ was born. I envision the scene of the nativity amidst a dark blue evening sky with stars twinkling overhead, with one star shining more brightly than all the others. Peace, not a thing, but a person - Christ.
the warm days and the great outdoors.
It was summer but it was fall I wanted;
the colorufl leaves and the cool dry air.
It was fall but it was winter I wanted;
the beautiful snow and the joy of the holiday season.
It was now winter but it was spring I wanted;
the warmth and the blossoming of nature.
I was a child but it was adulthood I wanted;
the freedom and the respect.
I was twenty but it was thirty I wanted;
to be mature and sophisticated.
I was middle-aged but it was twenty I wanted;
the youth and the free spirit.
I was retired but it was middle-age that I wanted;
the pressence of mind without limitations.
My life was over but I never got what I wanted.
