Due to the move, I really haven't been doing any knitting but some gorgeous yarn arrived in the mail. It is the Madelinetosh Care colourway, sock yarn made to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Beautiful yarn for an amazingly worthwhile cause.
Please note, this yarn was purchased in 2014 (before the Year of No Superfluous Spending began), lucky for me! It is a lovely last addition to my yarn stash.
And just finished reading The Heart of the Family by Elizabeth Goudge. I absolutely adored this trilogy. And was very happy to see it make Ginny's Happy List, which I will be reading through myself. There are some old favourites there that I have been reminded would be great to re-read and some new ones that I will look forward to exploring.
My favourite quote from The Heart of the Family:
' her creativeness found its joy in the shaping of everyday life to a form of comeliness, so that it became not just something that one put up with, but something that was enjoyable and lovely in itself.'
It is not just our generation that is saying that the everyday moments are the ones that count!
Also reading the latest Above Rubies magazine that arrived in the mail yesterday. Just love the cover photo!
