I simply want everything I do to be an act of worship to God. ********************EVERYTHING******************** like a spider's web, intricately woven, the threads of our lives are entwined, making us who we are, where we are, at this time in history.... here's a small record of one family's journey to love God

Friday Favourites #4


My knitting bag.

Knit in the round with a complete hank of Utiku Oceans and an extra ball of navy.

Felted (actually, overfelted - my plan was to leave it tall enough to fit my knitting patterns in, but that wool shrinks FAST - and I'm not making another one!)


Embellished with buttons and bell.

Handles made from bright wooden beads I painted and then threaded onto an old coathanger. These are twisted onto spare knitting needles. Father Bear has promised to help me attach them so they don't look "huckery".

Pockets galore to hold measuring tape, ancient tin box of tiny stitch markers and darning needles, handmade-by-Sharon-zipped-bag with gifted big stitch markers, scissors, pens, notebooks, patterns and in the bottom an old wooden box of my grandfather's to hold my circulars.

Bags of blue hold individual projects so they don't get tangled.....you can't work on one ting at a time now you know! There needs to be an easy project for tkaing to chat with people, a tricky one that needs full concentration and another just for fun!

You clever gal! I LIKE!!
You make bits and pieces like that and I would be more than happy to try to sell them for you!
Hey drop me an email on estacreationz@gmail.com and we can swap some brainy ideas......(in my case slightly less brainy as breastfeeding kinda makes it a bit squishy :-)

Oh, you said this wasn't too "me", but I love it and would sport it any day!
