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.”

Spring Has Sprung

The color green always reminds me of Spring and this year I welcome the season change more than ever. We've just endured our 4th Nor'easter in as many weeks and I am done with "Old Man Winter" but enough complaining  for now. I'm happy to report I have completed last week's  assignment for Frankie Brown's Knit Along; Square #11.  Frankie's Knitted Stuff. It's called Honey Comb.  I've committed to using up my "mile high"stash pile for this project and it is starting to show. It shouldn't surprise anyone that it is sewing all these squares together that is proving to be a challenge for me; the "queen of putting things off" and I'm already falling behind. While I didn't set out to use  green I'm glad I did.  This soft, light green color reminds me of new seasons, new life and hope. This yarn is probably a leftover from one of the million baby items my 90 year old mom has made over the years and am thrilled to add it to my blanket.   She recently lost her ability to knit so I inherited her stash.  

Thanks Mom, it's exactly what
 need. 😊



Oh, and I
