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

Yarn Along: One Done


I am continuing to listen to Mornings On Horseback by David McCullough on audiobook whenever I have the chance.  In book form, I have set aside anything more substantial for a walk in a garden.  I just borrowed An Amish Garden from the library.  It is essentially an Amish woman's diary of her garden through the year with plenty of eye-candy photos to boot.  It is lovely to look through. 

And someday, I intend to publish a book just like this.  Minus the Amish part.  ;-)

The knitted cable purse is done!  I originally planned to buy handles to make it more purse-like but couldn't find anything that suited me.  I opted to, instead, save my money and make my own strap and turn it more into a messenger bag.

I lined the purse with fabric that I already had on hand but it went so well, I thought a ruffle at the top would give a nice textural distinction and show off the fabric a bit.

I made pillowcases for my mother-in-law from this fabric for Christmas a few years ago so now I guess this purse matches her bed!  ;-) 

I haven't decided yet whether I ought to keep this for myself or give it away.  It is an awfully sunshine-y purse and I know lots of people who could use some sunshine in their lives. 

Now that the purse is done, Corynn's crocheted Easter dress can be given full priority.  Only a few more weeks, after all.
