I am blessed to be a Texas housewife and mom. I am learning to enjoy the little things even when they annoy me. I am in the middle of chaos trying to find the calm through creativity and prayer. This is the diary of my journey.

Sweater Time

Well, my sweater design is finally in the running for the 30 Day Sweater Design Challenge. I’m working on getting better pictures but wanted to share with my followers. If you enjoy the design, please vote for me. You can vote once a day from now through Sunday. The top 12 designs chosen by popular vote will be published after the first of the year in a special 30 day sweater pattern collection.

I used my Dragon’s Luxury yarn base and did a custom Teal colorway just for this project. The yarn was a sheer pleasure to work with. I worked up a diamond cable pattern that runs on the sleeves and then is enlarged into a design on the back. The lower portion of the back design is then repeated under the pockets on the front. I am working up a long sleeve and hooded version of this sweater as well.

For those of you who vote for my sweater, come back to this post and comment. I will give away one skein of yarn to a lucky blog reader who votes for my pattern. Thanks for helping me get my first pattern published and good luck.

Go vote here!

I’ll be back with pictures of the giveaway skein and sweater soon!






Sunday Morning Musings

Yesterday was a crazy day. I thought it was gonna be a hard day when Hubby’s phone started ringing at 7:30a. He ended up having to go work on a customer site before he was even ready to be awake.
God never ceases to amaze me. He took that early morning issue to set in motion a series of events that helped ease some of our financial issues and vehicle issues. I now own a new flex fuel truck that saves us money on gas and our monthly payment is less, plus we get to skip to months of payments. On top of the new vehicle, our other truck needed tires, wiper motor and some minor engine work to pass inspection. The Lord guided my husband to a tire shop while on his way to pick up the wiper motor. He then took it in to our tire/mechanic guy who is going to get everything fixed and do the inspection in exchange for computer services from Hubby. No money out of pocket.
The Lord has blessed us this week as he does every week just on a larger scale. What has seemed coincidental in your life is the Lord blessing you and saying “Remember, I will take care of your needs.”


New Beginnings

After reading blogs written by others and a desire to share my passion and thoughts I have finally broken down and set up my own blog. In the posts to come, I will be sharing my creations, inspirations and various musings with you.

Welcome to my world and enjoy the shortest post you will see from me.
