Needles and Thread

Hannah used needles.

Hannah used thread.

Yes, yes, yes....I got my wish...socks knitted just for me by my beautiful, talented daughter!
 I knew Hannah was busy knitting. She's always knitting or spinning this or that. I have wished and hinted ( Oh...I'm not above hinting or begging) for a pair of her beautiful socks. This was my year! I am so very proud of her, her talent, her kindness, and all that she means to her Dad and me.

I love to watch her work. What she does with tiny, little, "sticks" is amazing to me. She's seems to think it's no big deal and that anyone can do it! Ha! I know better. It's not as easy as it looks, nor do we all have the patience for it! 

Now....when should I start the begging, (I mean) hinting for a sweater?????  


On a recent jaunt through the woods, my sister's Granddaughter lost one of the work gloves she was wearing. After a careful search the glove was not to be found. Here's the conversation that followed;

Mimi..."one glove will do you no good you might as well throw that one in the trash"!
Bekah..."Oh No....we need to re-purpose it. We can give it to Aunt Tammy and she can add fabric to it and make a bag!!"

Sister throws gloves in the trash and then tells me the story.

When you find out that a six year old has faith that you can do something do it!

I had her dig the glove out of the trash, wash it, and get it to me. Here's what happened next...

I added a little bling and Wa La...a bag for Bekah!
