My Place

T'was in a city where I was born, but there I never found a home.
My heart had known before my past, that in a city I would not last.
Could it be these feet of mine, would find the sand the place they'd pine?
Alas the beach was not the place, for that my forlorn heart would race.
Canopy of trees, shines filtered sun, a breathe of honeysuckle where I run,
T'was a hoosier I'm meant to be, with clay soil beneath my feet.
Just one acre, my little woods. But this place does suit me good.
And here I'll be a hoosier best, and live my life til time to rest.

A Cute Idea

We were discussing on ravlery, in our Sisters Crocheted and Knitted in Christ Group SCKC, how to keep track of where we are in a pattern. The wonderful idea of blue tape, is working absolutely wonderful for me. So much better than post it notes, marking on my paper, or even the magnetic boards.
But I also wanted a better way to view my pattern. I thought to glue the copy to a piece of cardboard. Then I thought, card board is so ugly... I should first glue a piece of scrapbook paper...well I went on from there in all my creativity to come up with this pink beauty. Then I made one for my daughter. Then we talked about making several as a keepsake of my favorite patterns for her to have. So, I shall begin another craft adventure. Thought I would share our idea with you. Perhaps you have someone that would love to have beautiful copies of your treasured patterns. Just as side note...I did not create the pattern listed on mine. It is the pattern Half a Dozen Hearts, 6 inch block that you can find here halfknits

Hi there! Followed you here from your comment on my blog today. Looks like we have some things in common. I'll have to check out that group on Ravelry (I'm sheepmademedoit); sounds right up my alley!
