I hate keeping secrets about things that I am working on. It kills me. I want to share. The fact that I cannot show the items for my book, yet, has driven me crazy. I, also, had another project that I was having to keep quiet about. My Michael reads my blog and I was making this for him and I wanted it to be a surprise.
Here it is. It is called "Pockets of Memories".
As it was, I left it on the couch yesterday afternoon. I had just finished the binding and Michael called to ask if I had baked him a cake. I put it down and went to get that done and forgot all about it being out. I was wanting to wait until tomorrow to give it to him. I still needed to stitch in the ditch on the binding. I did that this morning.
Here is a baby blanket that I am knitting. It is patterned after the Log Cabin quilt concept. I hope to write a tutorial on how this is done and post it here on my blog for one of the little knitters at church to do. The Square on the right is made in 4 little squares and sewn together to make a full size one. The big square is easy to make, but the small ones are quicker, but have way too many yarn ends. It really is worth the extra effort for the WOW factor that small squares give.
Another favorite quote from the book, Knowledge of the Holy by AW Tozer.
The idolatrous heart assumes that God is other than He is--in itself a monstrous sin--and substitutes for the true God one made after its own likeness. Always this God will conform to the image of the one who created it and will be base or pure, cruel or kind, according to the moral state of the mind from which it emerges. Food for thought......
