I think if you go back to every difficult moment in my life...I think it would punctuated by learning something new. Ever since I saw THIS NURSERY I have been a little obsessed with the color scheme (can you say next craft room?) and the granny square blanket that is featured in it.
My only problem was...I
can't couldn't crochet. But thanks to google, you-tube and netflixed episodes of L.A. Ink...I am proud to say that I CAN crochet. At least granny squares. :)
I am still perfecting my technique...via one giant granny square...that will end up as a baby blanket...and probably in the shop...
It's a very therapautic process...I have a couple more colors to add to the mix but I am very pleased with the results...
In other news...Doug and I have had lots of talks...and we have collectively decided to make moving home our goal. We know it won't be a fast process...who knows how long it could take for Doug to get transferred...our house to sell...etc. For now we are focusing on using our energies to make our house as sell ready as possible by tackling all those "when we sell the house" projects. Tons of things that we wanted to do anyways...only now we are no longer putting them off.
One of those projects...if not the first...is giving the kitchen and cabinets a fresh new coat of white paint and then installing knobs and pulls (that I managed to snag on ebay for .99 each!).
Your prayers would be coveted...and appreciated...we have a long way to get to where we hope the Lord will lead us.
