What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Stitch by Stitch


It's been a while since I gave an update on my afghan project. That is not to say it hasn't been worked on, just hasn't been talked about. I decided today is the day for an update, since I started two squares and finished one square in the waiting room before my testing was done. No better time I'd say!

The progress is slow, but it is definitely there. I have completed 11 squares-though only three of them have the finished edging in ecru stitched around them. Eleven squares though! That is more than an ENTIRE column in the project! I am 1/7 of the way finished!!! Wow. That doesn't sound as impressive as before. I will stick with saying 11 squares!! ;-)

Here are some of the most recent additions to my pile. I am not doing the squares in the order of the book-rather, I am looking at the ones I *think* I can figure out or finding ones that I think are exceptionally pretty to do. This is why the above photo is all rose and ecru colored squares. The sage squares haven't been all that appealing to me lately.

Mmmmm, I love these colors. And I'll love the sage too, I'm sure. When it again appeals to you. ,-)

Rebecca! I'm reading back wards here. You had the C-scan today {Monday}. And follow up appointment on Tuesday. Please try to update us, as soon as you can, after the Tues. appointment.

I can't remember just what you had all the pain with, a week or so ago. But these things you stated now, sound like infection going on. I do hope they find the full cause and then, you can be given the Rx you need.

Hugs, hugs, hugs,
Mari-Nanci
