IT'S MERRY MONDAY!
In a few days we will be celebrating a day set aside to give thanks to God for all His blessings. You are probably already making plans and preparations for this special day. As you prepare, begin to think about all the wonderful things God has given you this year
I list my things I'm thankful for every Thursday but this Thursday will be a special one so I'll try to put together my list for the year. Be prepared! It may be a long one.
Today I'm going to try and get one of my crafty projects finished up and begin a new one. After Christmas is over, I'll post pictures of all that I've done. Hopefully there will be lots to show you.
So far I have managed to finish 4 of the Friendship Shawls that I'm making for family and friends this year. I even made myself one. Oh my they are soft and cuddly.
The Red one is for DDIL#1. Her birthday is over but I didn't have it quite finished when we took our trip so I'll be giving it to her next weekend. She choose the color as it is her favorite. In the pattern book I'm using, it says that Red stands for Energy, strength, power, determination, love, and courage. All these things are so true of my DIL.
The green one is for a friend for Christmas. Green stands for healing, harmony safety, hope, protection, and peace.
I think these colors just happens to say a lot about each of them and fits their personality very well.
The next two shawls that I'll be doing will be January birthday gifts and the favorite colors of these two also seems to match their personalities.
I'll be making a purple one for our Princess. Purple stands for Wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity and mystery.
And I'll be making a yellow one for a friend. Yellow stands for Cheerfulness, energy, joy and confidence.
To me these shawls say 'here is a HUG for you to keep'. They are soft, warm and very cuddly. The pattern that I'm using is a very simple one and easy to do too.
Paints and brushes will be my tools for today's project...the knitting needles and yarn are the tools my evening projects.
Have a Merry Monday everyone!
