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.”

Ok, so my "inner voice" lies

Ahh.....Yet another tiny baby sweater left undone!  As most of you know, almost three years ago when my daughter told me she was pregnant I was so certain that it would be a girl I began several "baby girl" projects. When we found out that it was to be a boy I abandoned them and went to work on some boy things that I could leave  un-finished. It's not that I like girls more than boys or that (gasp!) I subconciously wanted a girl, it is just that my intuition rarely leads me astray. Ok,  so there were  a few times I should have ignored the " inner voice", like back in the 80's when I thought that a small town white girl could rock an Afro!!  And oh yeah,  maybe my guide was a bit off  a few years ago on Halloween when I dressed up as Princess Leia to surpise my grandson Dylan who was going as Darth Vadar.  But that my friends is another blog for another  day. Let's just say  that I have been asked not to dress up for halloween from now on. Hmmmm I suppose he was just jealous of all the attention I was getting right? So here we go one more sweater to finish . Except for the collar all the pieces are done now and I will begin the process of putting it all together and then sewing on buttons and embroidering little flowers on it.
Onward and upward faithful readers! Thanks for your encouragement; it makes the sometimes daunting task a little easier.
Stay tuned for the pinecone wreath.
Peace and Love, Jackie (aka Leah)
