Easily distracted.......................

My intention for the last 2 weeks have been to post, but I have had so many things going, so many irons in the fire, so many oars in the water,  --
knitting, (a new entrelac shawl, using Mini Mochi)

more knitting, (these are some fingerless gloves that I am working on)

quilting, (Ben's quilt, a little more done on it)

spinning, (one bobbin full, remember the roving that I bought in June.? It took me about 10 hours to fill this bobbin. Did it at the Spin-In at Mountain View)

crocheting (Made 2 sets of these for expectant mothers and new babies)

and even some weaving.....(My name draft for a missionary shawl. I took the name of the tribe that they are ministering to and grafted it out. I will have to share how I did this, later)

I have so many knitting plates spinning that I don't even know where to begin to tell you what all I am working on.
So, what else has been going on? I just began another Bible study, this one is a Precept study on the book of Isaiah. It is like trying to drink from a firehose! Been exercising every day, seeing no weight loss, but feeling better. Spending time in my carport reading (Just finished "Through the Gates of Splendor" by Elizabeth Elliot), with Butterscratch to keep me company .
He really thinks that this is his home!

Wanted to share with you something that my talented husband built.

It is a pulpit for the Youth Pastor at our church, Pastor George. I am not the only one in this family with talent. I just get to wear mine.
Here is my talented little sweetheart. He's fast asleep with his quilt that I made him. He is going to kill me, but I thought it was so precious!

Okay, so that is what has been going on in my busy life.
Thursday, I head out on my yearly autumn trip to Silver Dollar City and Branson with my girlfriends.

I will end with another favorite quote from the book, Knowledge of the Holy by AW Tozer.

When Christian theology declares that God is wise, it means vastly more than it says or can say, for it tries to make a comparatively weak word bear an incomprehensible plenitude of meaning that threatens to tear it apart and crush it under the sheer weight of the idea. "His understanding is infinite," says the psalmist. It is nothing less than infinitude that theology is here laboring to express.

Thank you for visiting me today. K

Beautiful catch up collage! I just put an order in for MiniMochi yarn! Love what you did with it! The pic of your husband is nice-not blackmail material so he will forgive you (no drool, etc!) Glad all is well.
