You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Button It Up!

Daisey Sweater going to
 Outreach Appalachia
I am starting to make a dent in the mess of unfinished stuff that I have accumulated over the years and it feels good. I still have tons of stuff to complete but I am making progress. Wouldn't you know that while I was trying to locate some loose matching buttons for the baby sweaters I came across a long ago lost earring. For a second I was giddy with excitement because I loved those earrings until I remembered that I sold the orphaned one at a  "gold party" a  few years ago. I'll get over it I guess but it is a "bummer".
Peach Infant Sweater
for my friend's baby!
I'm beginning to understand the "slippery slope" between collector and hoarder. Sometimes when I watch the hoarder shows I get the urge to go through their stuff.....I don't know if this is normal thinking or not.....hmmmm maybe not.
Peace and Love, thanks for following and encouraging me!
