    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

      What a beautiful art/craft you have taught yourself! You deserve your gift! When I went to New Zealand there were many shops with these in them and selling all kinds of beautiful things. I still have the hat and gloves from that trip.

        That is awesome. My great uncle had his mom's spinning wheel. I wanted it so bad, but didn't have anywhere to put it. Not to mention 2 boys that probably would have broken it. sigh

              Knitting socks has been on my to-do list too. I actually tried once and it was definitely a learning curve so I only made one sock! Maybe someday I will give it a try again.

                Oh how fun! Have a wonderful time making socks. I love handmade mittens and chunky warm sweaters. Keep us posted on how you are doing, how hard is it to learn, etc.

                    You should try nalbinding with some of that yarn

                        Hurray for you, Annika! You're tried several new things this year with your FMQ & quilt painting. More power to you with this new challenge. BTW, how is your brother doing?

                          Thank you all for your kind words ! I am having so much fun. I order some wool roving and it should arrive sometime next week. Can not wait. For now I am just practicing with control of the wheel. Clockwise and anti clockwise spinning.

                          As for my Brother, he is out of the hospital. He still is not 100 % but so much better than he was.
