Thursday February 18, 2010

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).

Proverbs 31:13
She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
    love you,Sam
