I have been on a bit of a sewing kick since I got my serger so knitting has been a little neglected. Alex has been particularly needy lately though and I can knit and nurse at the same time so things have picked up a little.
I’m working on my first pair of longies that have short rows in the pattern. It’s been challenging but I think I finally have the hang of it!
I have been working on planning our Lent the last few days. Advent was such a disaster with Mr. Cranky taking so much of my time, so I’m hoping I can do better with Lent.
The Story of the Cross is probably one of my favourite books ever. It really brings the stations of the cross to a level that Mary can understand without compromising the events of Jesus’ last days. I borrowed it from the library last year but it was one we had to have.
Another book I love to use is Mrs. Sharp’s Traditions. I found this one in a used bookstore and it’s full of wonderful traditions for all seasons. We’ll be incorporating some of her ideas into our Lenten calendar.
