So long heat

     I am so thankful that our heat here in the Midwest has finally subsided. Although I am able to leave at will I begin to feel like a prisoner in my own home! Yes... I even anticipate autumn! God has a way of preparing us, doesn't He?


I am frequently away. In October, we will be going to Atlanta to finish our spring buying. This is my only remaining haven where I can get my baby fix. There are no babies in our family right now and we all miss it so much.

So as a single mom, artist, and a knitter, you can see why I can keep (too) busy. You should see my laundry pile! But  I thank the Lord each day for my sister. Without her, I could not function.

Here is the final cloth that I was working on earlier in the week:

And here are the colors that I used for this cloth from top to bottom:

Main background color: S&C Warm Brown

S&C Rose

S&C Shell Pink

S&C Hot Pink

S&C Geranium

P&C Pastel Pink

I have added something new to my left sidebar. Often times in my path, I come across so many people who have prayer needs or those whom God has placed on my heart to pray for. "Keeping you in prayer" is for those very precious people who I lay before God in prayer. Stella is a 2 year old girl, living in California that I was made aware of last week. She was just diagnosed with Leukemia. I pray that the Lord grants wisdom to all those in place of decision-making where her health is concerned. I also ask the Lord to grant comfort - even in unknown circumstances - to her parents.


If you have knowledge of someone that needs prayer or someone that God has laid on your heart, or you, yourself needs prayer, please comment me or drop me a note so that I may add these to this prayer circle If you would like to take the "Keeping you in prayer" button to your blog, please feel free to take it. I will update or change the button as necessary.


Soon I will be posting my baby care instruction tag which was pictured in a prior post - and in the not-to-distant future, I hope to be adding a free pattern. Does anyone have an opinion on the wording of that baby tag? Should it be for a baby washcloth, or should the text be worded more general so that it could be used for a baby blanket or other cotton baby items as well? Your thoughts requested :)


Thank you for visiting me here in this little world. I so much appreciate your words! Be blessed on your weekend and make the most of these last summer days.



"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me".


Psalm 51:10



Love this colors. Remind me of strawberries and chocolate cake! Thanks for posting the colors. You inspire me to be more exprimental in my color use!

Your ballbands are gorgeous as usual. You really have a way with colors ;)
I wish your daughter lots of luck in finding the perfect college. They are so young to make such big decisions. We were lucky that my son found his interest early to be an engineer and picked a school that was so right for him. We feel truly blessed :)

Have a wonderful weekend :)

I'm an avid reader of your blog, It is my favorite knitting blog right after the Yarn Harlot. I've never commented before, I should do that more often, Loved the peek into your shop and the pics of your dishcloths are such great eye candy!

I just love your blog! I love the prayer circle that you are doing and would like to requet prayers for my sister Lisa and her daughter Amber. I won't go into detail as she is a private person, other than to say that she is worried about Amber and the choices she is making now that she is living out on her own. Please keep them in your prayers?
On another note, I think the baby tags should be kept general as they would come in so handy that way. JMO :)

HUGZ, Julie

Hi CeElle,
What fun to see into your other life! Of course, I wish you great successes in that endeavor.

The ballband is superb with all those flavors of yarn.

The prayer circle is a great idea. I think all who see the names will join with you and ask for the Lord's will for those needs. I know that I will, anyways. :)

That photo of your boutique looks so fabulous! I want to come and browse.

And of course, your knitting is exquisite as always. What a lovely ballband.

I just wanted to add that I think your prayer circle is a wonderful idea. Would you keep my little boy, "Baby T," in your prayers this week? He's been having health issues for several months now, and we suspect it may be related to food allergy. He has an appointment with a pediatric allergist this week, and DH and I are really hoping to get the answers we're so desperate for. Thanks so much!
