What’s on the pins?

As you know Dear Reader I knit. I thought it would be nice to give you an update of what I’m knitting. I managed to finish the shawl with the horrible nupps in. I just need to block it. I’m pleased with it and I know it will be appreciated.

Last year’s birthday present is coming along. The vest is almost finished. It’s been a bit of a botch job as I ended up making one of the fronts in two sizes smaller. Even by fiddling with it I’m pleased to say I’ve made it fit. Luckily though I am loosing a bit of weight. Also I’m exercising a lot more so toning up as well! ๐Ÿ˜€

The Celtic shawl is still coming along slowly. I’ve also been doing a little bit of charity knitting focusing on the hearts. I will be starting another shawl this week for another present.

The idea is still to stash bust and not buy any yarn. I need to make a start on knitting bits for Operation Christmas Child as well as the Smoothie Hats. So my pins will be busy!

Blessings! ๐Ÿ˜€


My battles and my changes of heart part 1

I’m doing this blog in two parts.ย  I posted the other day about how I read a blog post that really spoke to me regarding how to dress as a woman. It is an issue that I have been debating about of which I will tell you about in another post – part 2.

The reason why I’m not going into it now is that I’ve not got much time today.ย  I’ve got Boot Camp shortly, which I really can’t/don’t want to miss.ย  Yeah….I’m on a bit of a fitness vibe at the moment, which I’ve also has had to let me question a few things and to get over a few hurdles. It is part of the journey that I have been making over the past three years but I am at an agreement with God over my heart. Let’s just say it has to be done, I have to be a big brave girl and get on with it.ย  The other thing is …well… yeah I’m being a bit chicken.ย  I’m not expecting you dear reader to know what is going on in my mind and you are there thinking you just said you had to be a big girl and get over a few things…. patience is a virtue dear reader! That’s my response!

Anyway as a bit of an introduction to part of my battle I came across this blog about and in it is a video. In it the lady goes through a lot of the issues that I have been experiencing as well as giving a very interesting history about swimwear. There are many valid points in this .

I hope you enjoy!

Words that make you think

Over the past few months I feel that God has been chipping away at me, pruning me and moulding me into something that He wants me to be. I’ve been searching for answers and praying about the issue. I came across this blog and the words have really spoken to me.

Today’s sermon at church also spoke to me. I feel now more confident in going now with God’s flow and swim alongside Him. It’s it going to be easy. It’s not going to happen over night. It will however be worth it and God will be there every step of the way.

Blessings! ๐Ÿ˜€
