An old project

This is an afghan that my mother-in-law began back in the late 1980's or early 1990's. I had picked out the colors, but she was unable to finish it before she died in 1998. She always had a few projects going (like me!) Since I haven't been able to do any crafting lately, I thought I would share this afghan that I hope to one day finish. I sewed the strips that were finished together, but that's about it. Someday...... when I am up for a challenge and make the time, I will get started on it again. I just love the colors and it looks great on my new burgandy colored couch cover I just bought. The pillows help tie in the green curtains.

thanks for visiting!

As onto the Lord...

Teaching school is a full time job! I come home after nine or so hours at school with more to do at home. I have not done any handiwork except to hem up some new pants. That's not very exciting or worthy of a photo!!

I found this graphic tonight and I thought that I would at least add it to my blog to remind me of what my desire should be, whether teaching or crafting or whatever ~ Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
