how to make a heartfelted Bramble❀tini loop ornament ||| Knitting With HeartWell it’s beginning to look a lot like last year’s Christmas, now that my fibrously festive decor pics are finally packaged into a presentable post… HA! Why does time always fly so fast?!?

Anyhoo… holding an iPad completely still for stills can be a bit of a challenge. So in today’s photo gallery, I’ve included one especially blurred shot to emphasizes the crAZy of my logic to share Christmas photos a year late …LoL… But OhhhHo boy… really gotta get cracking on THIS year’s decorating! Family’s coming to visit from Manitoba and it’s gonna be extra fun… ‘though may need a Christmas miracle to get it all done!Β 

‘Twas last Christmas when my nimble knitting fingers stitched the first fleecy prototype for my upcoming “It’s ALL about Jesus” mosaic knitting pattern design. I’d hoped to have it published by now, but these things take time. For now, I’m extremely thankful to have my ol’ iMac back and slowly-yet-surely moving forward with pattern layout preparations! Currently stitching my 4th sampleβ€”see lovely group shot of em’ all laid flat on a striped bath towel “blocking mat” πŸ˜‰Β 

Do you believe Christmas (and life in general) is all about Jesus? It truly warms my heart and soothes my soul to knit such comforting words ❀

Feel free to click the following photos and climb my stairway decor from Christmas past… 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016… Hope you’ll also enjoy the fireside Christmas music video and/or meaningful message from one of my favourite preachers,Β  Pastor Charles Lawson πŸ™‚

      Just before winter ends and springtime starts, and knowing that Ms Jackie Loewen likes snowflakes, here’s my recently updated post improved with three special animations to feature the beauty and appeal of snowflakes at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/%e2%9d%84-%e2%9d%85-%e2%9d%86-snowflakes-tell-me-why-you-are/

      Please enjoy! πŸ™‚

        • Thank you, Ms Jackie Loewen! πŸ™‚

          The three new additions are not videos; rather, they are special animations, the last two of which also contain chosen stanzas from the main poem of the post. Looking forward to your feedback at the comment section of the said post. . . . . .

          May you have a lovely weekend!

    • Hi Anna ❀ Predictions for an early spring here too πŸ™‚ Yay… at least that's one bit of positive news. Snow brightens up the landscape, but I'm sure looking forward to when our -20/-30Β°C snowbank shovelling days melt into memory!!! I've been thinking of you too and appreciate your taking time to pop by today! ❀ Trying to focus/get something done seems like such an uphill battle, but I really oughta/wanna/gotta pull some posts together soon! πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ Jackie@KWH
