What a pretty sight this is! I do tend to get more spinning time in when I'm home alone though. Thanks to everyone who 'read' my wool label for me in the previous post and helped me learn more about it. I spent a good while sorting & cleaning up my crafting area this afternoon, and making my collage which I wasn't 1oo% happy with but it was the best I could do ....I guess...grin. Hope you are having a cozy evening. I picture you knitting and spinning or faces lit from the monitors...like I'm sure mine is right now. Fun, isn't it? Well, the Irish Creme Decaf is done perking. I love my percolator...though I'm more of a tea girl, I enjoy coffee with hubby. He's waiting for a cup right now...so off I go!

"On a Quiet Conscience" Poem by Charles I of England.

"Close thine eyes, and sleep secure;
Thy soul is safe, thy body sure.
He that guards thee, he that keeps,
Never slumbers, never sleeps.

A quiet conscience in the breast
Has only peace, has only rest.
The wisest and the mirth of kings
Are out of tune unless she sings;

Then close thine eyes in peace and sleep secure,
No sleep so sweet as thine, no rest so sure."

Charles I reigned from 1600 to 1649. During his reign there was a civil war and though they fought valiantly, the kings men were defeated and he was later beheaded. He sounds like he was a wise man. I love his poem....And I love this verse too and the author...smile.
"I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safty." Psalms 4:8

I stopped by your blog tonight. I saw your name on Sabine's blog (which is another recent find!). I wanted to let you know that your blog is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I love the pictures, the poetry, the Bible verses, the quotes, and seeing what projects you are working on.

I love to knit and quilt but have never gotten much past "beginner" but I love it just the same. Anyway, thank you for the inspirations and for giving me a lovely evening!

I am so sorry to hear of your mother's death. My father died in April 2005. Praise God he is in Heaven too.

Have a wonderful weekend

How did I miss three new posts? Must have been kept busy with Mom's visit and daughter's engagement ... no time for reading blogs :) I did try to translate the German ... but had no success. Glad someone answered your question. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Wonderful colors. I can't knit but I've put my hand to quilting once.

I've missed you muchly.

He that guards thee, he that keeps,
Never slumbers, never sleeps.


Wonderful imagery. He is ever watchful.

Thank you for visiting my site!
Your site is just lovely! I love this yarn that you're spinning! Knitting is quickly becoming a passion for me but I've never dreamed of spinning my own yarn. You are very inspiring!
I look forward to reading your blog in the future.
