Isn't this purse the most cheerful thing you have seen in the longest time? Thanx, Sallee for making me the bag. Posy sock sack to be exact. I had one made for my mom for mother's day. I carried it around with me for a week, and decided I had to have 1 just like it. Technically, it is a sock knitting bag. It perfectly holds a wound skein of sock yarn, has cool dp holders, place for cell and wallet.
For me, I use the dp holders to hold my lipstick nice and tight! I am loving this thing. It holds great to my shoulder as I grab at the kiddoes!

Grandma's Garden andInner Journey. Finally, I am showing y'all the new roving I got from David Simpson the other night. I already have 1 skein spun of the Inner Journey. I am thinking a zig zag scarf for dh, Andy.

I love spinning the Inner Journey right now. The colors are so appropriate for my life right now. Red for passion. Gold for precious treasures. Black for sorrow.

I just had the 1st conversation with my 51 year old cousin today about letting her mother go. I have walked the 'letting a person' go path several times. Aline, my aunt, my cousins mom; is in the ICU, doesn't know where she is, how she got there, and keeps asking her daughters why she has all these tubes coming out of her. I have asked her, before she got to this stage, if she was ready to go, and she said "yes." Poor girls.

I leave you with the passage of Scripture that my father asked to be read to him on his death bed. I was 24, in shock, and terrified. I will never forget this Scripture and how much it means to me.

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare of the Lord; He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I am trusting Him.

For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from the fatal plague. He will shield you with His wings. He will shelter you with His feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor fear the dangers of the day, nor dread the plague that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.

Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.

Lord, that's my prayer for Aline and her children. Amen.

I was very sorry to read about your Aunt Aline and her illness. I'll be thinking about you during this difficult time.

(P.S. Gorgeous roving!)

You're a sweetie - you've got enough going on, and you post an "ad" for my bags!

I'm soooo glad you like it! And I'm delighted that you're finding the pocklets sized for things you need to carry.

Love the quotation...love your prayer.

Aline and your family are still in my prayers.

I knew I should have bought that red roving!!! I looked at the other one similar but it had a tad too much of a rose color in it for me. You should of gotten that one but I guess it wouldn't have been a scarf for Andy with rose in it!!!
Ya gotta be fast around fiber fanatics! Lesson learned.

Perfect Scripture.
