What a wonderful thing weekends are, and even better are extended weekends. My husband and I had a wonderful visit from some friends this holiday. You may be asking what this has to do with design or handcrafts, well I was able to share with my friend the joy of knitting! I had forgotten how fun it is to share what you enjoy. I helped her remember some stitches and showed her how to make knit wash cloths and it was so fun.

So this is my encouragement for the day... be a teacher. Share what you love with those you love. Be understanding and take your time, practice giving clear instructions - and you will have even greater joy in your work.


  1. great post! i've done the same thing with a friend of mine who didn't even know how to use a needle and thread! i was glad to show her how to stitch together a cuff for herself. it's nice to teach people things they didn't know how to do!

  2. Sounds like a fabulous weekend :)

  3. You have also succeeded in making me smile..really big!

  4. It always makes me feel so good to be able to "pass on" those things which I know how to do. It's a great feeling of satisfaction!
