His Biddings

Michelangelo, The Creation of Man (Detail), 1508-1512, Fresco, Cappella Sistina, Vatican

"Who thought of it's being hard? The beasts would not think it hard if I told them to walk on their heads. It would become their delight to walk on their heads. I am His beast, and all His biddings are joys."
C.S. Lewis, Perelandra

"Today is a Snow Day"

Snow is a real treat for us as it is something we rarely get.

Measuring the depth.

It's cold outside but it must be warm under there.

Three More Skirts

These skirts were about the only thing I worked on over the last few weeks.

A friend ordered them for herself and her daughters.

Love this one. Thought about stealing it but it wouldn't have fit me.
All fabrics are from the Stonehill collection for Jo-Ann.

Just let me know when you get tired of seeing skirts like this and I'll stop posting them :). See ya!
