I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee...Psalm 9:verses 1 and 2a

Paper & Threads....
Paper dolls was my favorite past-time when I was a girl. Did any little girls like to sew by hand? I remember my Mom trying to get me to embroider pillow-cases as a teen. No go! I did enjoy Home Ec in high school.....knitting and sewing especially. To make a new dress on a sewing machine...or a jumper....was interesting.
This movie is sooo good and the book 'Girl of the Limberlost' by Gene Stratton-Porter is a wonderful favorite. A dear friend told me once that reading this book changed the way she looked at creation.. with awe. And that somewhere she was visiting, they had a shelf of Gene Stratton-Porter books in the guest room, and she enjoyed each one she read. They became treasured friends to her....and to me.
I eventually finished this....an apron, but it is tucked away downstairs in my sewing room. My Mother constantly had a project she was working on, and never went anywhere without her tote. In it was the book she was reading at the time and her knitting or whatever. She embroidered me a whole quilt top once. Lavender and greens, a very pretty thing, but not as impressive as the fact she did all that stitching for me as a gift! Loved that....
I like all things that are cheerful, and Woody certainly is a cheerful guy......'you've got a friend in me' goes the song. We like it all =)
Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
