I'm a bundle of nerves lately and so have turned, with increasing desperation, to my knitting needles. It's therapy. Comforting, happy therapy. The result? Something new for my Etsy shop: a collection of handknit hats, each embellished with vintage ribbons and buttons. They're so perfect for upcoming blustery days. I love these. I just love these.

Would talk more, but feel one of those How in the world is this all going to work out without me dying first? headaches coming on. Better go find those knitting needles again. ...

You stay busy doing what you can do and He will stay busy taking care of all the rest. But, my dear girl, you perfectly described anxiety with "How in the world is all this going to work out without me dying first." There are a lot of us feeling this way these days. A lot. May we remember to grip His hand a bit tighter. It's already been a bumpy ride and it may get bumpier. On that cheery note, I will certainly be praying that things brighten and soon. Those hats are terrific!

Oh so beautiful! Reminds me of the stockings I'm making out of old sweaters---and then adding sweet little embellishments. Love the hats!

Hi Brin! Just wanted to let you know that you (and you househelpers)have inspired me to learn how to knit. I just finished taking a course in knitting (offered by our local community resource center) and had so much fun. Thanks for the inspiration!

Will you have more of your Vintage Collection?! I went to your shop to buy gifts for Christmas and you seem to be sold out! Great for you! But not great for me :( Blessings to you!
