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

10 ::

Last Sunday marked the last 10 weeks of this pregnancy and right about now (in my mind, at least) is when the countdown really begins.  When the numbers go down into the single digits- well, things get real.

There is so much I would like to do in preparation and celebration of widdle Tiddle and what with Halloween costume making, wedding clothes sewing, Thanksgiving, Adele's birthday and Christmas preparations all sandwiched in those weeks, I know they will just fly by.  If I am not intentional about it, these last few weeks may pass overhead right alongside the geese making their southern trek.

So I decided to do a wee bit of a countdown on the blog.  Once a week from now until *the big day*, I'll be posting a Tiddle countdown.  Photos highlighting the anticipation we are all filled to bursting with and hopefully, a Tiddle project each week.   I have a whole list of them, surely I can accomplish ten.

This week :: Many moons ago someone who knew I was knitting passed along a bag with a freshly started knitted sweater in it.  Just the sleeve had been started and the project seemed too daunting for me to ever actually finish but I couldn't bear to scrap the already beautifully knitted sleeve piece- it was so pretty!  So I kept it in the mending drawer for the moment inspiration struck and I figured out what could be done with it.  I brought it out this week, pulled out some stitches to make it hat sized, seamed up the back and crocheted a quick drawstring.   Couldn't have been easier- and one less thing lingering about as a UFO!

Sounds like a good plan,...One Tiddle accomplishment per week (besides growing Tiddle.
