Fortune Cookie Wisdom and Peeks...


A little fortune cookie wisdom for the day:
Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it.  Autograph your work with excellence.

I remember having that very talk with one of my contractors one day!  LOL.  I do believe it!


Sneak peeks at projects on my needles...


I'm going to really have to get busy to finish up the three things (no peek on one) I have in my line-up!

Such beautiful knitting. I wish I could sit down with you and talk knitting for a whole day.

What a great quote! I've heard it before, but not for a long time.

Your knitting is wonderful! I want to learn!

What a wonderful quote and I still want to learn to knit!!

Lovely thoughts and lovely handwork there, Tanna! Wish I could do that. I can do English smocking, but nothing else...
That edge on the lavender sweater is so beautiful!

Oh Tanna, what a precious little lilac sweater! I wish I could knit something other than a scarf! Your work looks fantastic.

Enjoy your day!

...and you DO autograph your work with excellence (as we all should strive to do).

the tangerine-coral color is so beautiful and autumnal!

That "fortune" is why Truett Cathy always autographs his books with Proverbs 22:1 - "A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold." Such truth in those words.

And I don't know what that orange thing is, but I sure do love the color and the tiny ruffle at the end. Can't wait for the reveal on that one! And of course the cupcake colored one, too. =) Love you. And your talent. =)

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

So lovely--My mother had no interest in sewing, knitting or embroidery when I was growing up and neither of my grandmothers ever taught me. A neighbor taught me to knit when I was about 9 yrs. old but I would have to learn all over again. but I do plan to learn again! Your work is so lovely and I LOVE wool--I do a little rug hooking and love it! Thanks for sharing your projects!
