This year is different. I’m going to get organized, keep every loom dressed, and bake fruit pies for my husband! Alas, good intentions are not a reliable measure of what my progress will be. I always want to do more than what I manage to get done.
I washed, pressed, hemmed, and pressed again the twelve placemats. Finishing is finished. It’s a nice way to end one year and start the next. Measurable progress.
Thankfully, our value isn’t wrapped up in what we accomplish. Or what we don’t. We need the Lord’s grace. It’s strength that’s beyond our own strength. Grow in grace. Grow in strength. That’s my prayer this year for you and for me.
May your value be wrapped up in grace.
Happy New Weaving Year,

Happy New Year to you and your family!
Hi dear Elisabeth, Happy New Year to you and your family, too!
Happy New Year Karen,
It is a marvel how the same resources used can become so may different things. The beautiful place mats are from the same resources, but are so different.
They represent your application of the gifts from God. Previent grace is such a blessing.
Hi Nannette, Your thoughtful response is touching. I also thought of the people who will be sitting at the table — many similarities, yet so different from each other. It’s fitting that each person has a unique place setting at the table.
Happy New Year,
Happy New Year Karen, I hope it is filled with joy!
Thank you, Liberty, Joy is a wonderful thing to hope for!
Happy New Year to you and yours,
Your table looks lovely, Karen! You must have all the boxes unpacked! We will miss you at WOW this week, but we wish you a very happy and productive New Year.
Hi D’Anne, I did get all the boxes in the dining room unpacked. Haha, but there are quite a few boxes still unopened in the garage. Little by little…
I will miss being with all the ladies at WOW!
Happy New Year!
Absolutely gorgeous! Best wishes for happiness and good health.
Hi Shari, Thank you so much for the kind words!
Happy New Year to you,
