Over the last several weeks, I have been doing lots of handiwork and crafting. Keeping my mind and hands occupied. Trying to stay focused on the goodness of the Lord, beautifying my home, and blessing others ~ instead of letting Satan have his way with my thoughts.
These are some of the fruits of some of my recent labors:
Recovering the bench seat in our entryway. I love this material! The colors (although not depicted quite properly in these photos) are exactly what I want to decorate our new house with someday.
A super fun, long & skinny pillow for the bench. I love these whimsical chickens.
A cozy scarf, complete with super fun fringe; made with yarn given to me by a very dear friend.
A wreath made from grapevines, silk flowers, ribbon, some wire and a bit of glue.
Nineteen sets of baby gifts (when I said I was sewing dozens of baby things, I was not in any way joking). But I can’t show you the actual baby sets, as I wouldn’t want a recipient to see their gift before it was given.
A little black beret, a simple single-afternoon project (and a terrible picture).
She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.

You do such nice work. I would love to learn how to do more crochet stitches other than the very basic ones I already know. The bench is cute and I like the material you picked out for it too.
You do beautiful work! I love that scarf; nice colors. And the whimsical chickens are oh so cute! 🙂
Your hat is nice too; do you know how to do very many different crochet patterns/stitches? I learned last year but have a hard time learning new ones.
Wow, 19 sets of baby things. And I thought I knew a lot of babies coming (10).*hugs*I’m sure it isn’t easy to be joyful for them nor to work on baby things for them either.But you’re so thoughtful and kind to think of making them things!
