Wrist Warmers

Here in upstate New York winters are very cold. The main source of heat in our home is a wood burning stove, which is very cozy, but when temperatures are below 20 degrees we could always use a little extra warmth.

Several years ago my sister Hannah began knitting wrist warmers, the perfect solution for cold hands. We can still sew or knit because our fingers are free, but our hands can stay nice and warm.

Wrist warmers are also great for shopping, allowing your fingers to grasp for keys or buckle your seat belt. Wrist warmers also lend an old-fashioned yet contemporary flair to any outfit.

Hannah carefully knits each pair of wrist warmers from soft wool and wool blend yarns. They are currently for sale on our Etsy page in a variety of colors. We have found that wrist warmers have always been a much appreciated gift this time of year. : )

"She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands." Proverbs 31:13

A Little Women Treasury

Yesterday evening I completed a treasury for Etsy, my theme was "Little Women". "Little Women" has always been one of my favorite books, so it was fun to try and think of all the different items I could list that would be "Little Women" related. To view the treasury click here.

Answer to Prayer

Thank you to all who have kept my grandma is prayer. Saturday my grandma opened her eyes, and this morning she was sitting up and talking with us, Praise the LORD! Grandma has a long recovery ahead of her, but now that her actual health problem has been identified she can recover.

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
Ephesians 3:20-21

Prayer Request

Please keep my Grandma in your prayers. Last Saturday morning she was taken to the hospital. The doctors still have not been able to diagnose her condition. She is currently in the ICU and this morning she is having difficulty breathing and has fluid in her lungs. My grandma's name is Ethel, and all prayers for her would be greatly appreciated.
