Friday saying...

"Life is a grindstone, and whether it grinds you down or polishes you up is for you and you alone to decide." anonymous

Sometimes life grinds a little harder on you than you would like...but in the end it was just a rough spot that needed a little dressing.

One thing that I really see now is more the little things...oh they mean so much to me.

I would have some pictures of my recent endeavor, but alas I shipped off with a bow and forgot to photograph. I made some lovely knitted wash cloths for two new bouncing baby girls!

Have a truly lovely weekend!

Pictures of Felting Project

Ta Da!!! Okay it took long enough...actually it has been finished for a while, just didn't get it here due too much stuff going on. :)

It is about 10" long and 4" wide. I made nice long straps.

After washing in hot water until desired results, I let dry. The purse dried with a towel in it to help shape.

Before it was completely dry I inserted large knitting needles where the straps would go and then let dry.

Then I inserted the long strap, tied in a french knot and voila! Finished! I just love how it turned out! Now I am making a little wallet with the left over yarn to put inside! If you are interested in the pattern, let me know. I haven't been sure if I would publish or not...

After the wallet I am on to knitting socks...yes. Crazy, but I can't wait! It will be a great project on the train.

Thanks Marian for the assistance!

Have a super day!
