Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Despite my aforementioned knitting disaster (the infamous Razzberry Beret); I continue to knit. I don't know why. Maybe it's the color or the repetition. It's like gambling, but much less expensive. My coffee table is laden with library books about knitting. The sofa is strewn with snippets of yarn. I find myself buying yarn like I used to buy fabric-just for the color. I don't have to be thinking of a project, persey (is this how you spell per-say?), I just need to buy yarn. Wool yarn, acrylic yarn. Variegated colors. Bright fuschias, forest greens, rich chocolatey mochas and vanilla bean colors. If I can't buy yarn, things about knitting will do. So yesterday I stopped by Barnes & Noble for a hot chocolate with extra whipping cream and a visit to the crafting section. I found this extraordinary knitting book! It's title was enough to draw me in..."Mason*Dixon Knitting". Subtitled The Curious Knitters' Guide. Stories, Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Questions, Answers, Jokes, and Pictures. Who could resist such a title? If you love to knit and you enjoy folksy writing, this book is a must have!
