I just need to add the sleeves to this Mira sweater - pattern by The Sitting Tree. I have been using up bit of yarn and think that I am going to use the color shown ( a beautiful hand dyed yarn from Springtree Road that I just received in a barter) for the arms and then finish the cuff in the same dark purple as the bottom edge. I hope it isn't too much but I am happy to be using up the yarn I have.
I borrowed these children's books from the library and just love the beautiful illustrations. The stories are sweet as well. The author is Paul Kortepeter and Susan Wheeler is the illustrator.
Also, I am so glad I took Radical Homemaking off my shelf to read through again. It is just the reminders I need as to why our family makes many of the choices we do.
"When we regain connection with all that sustains us, we regain the creative spirit. We rediscover the joy that comes with using our hands and our minds in union to nourish, nurture, and delight in our families; we tap the source of true creative satisfaction...."
