I am finished knitting the Booga J bag. The i-cord is coming along nicely. I found instructions on a website and wha-la ! As soon as the i-cord is done, I will felt my pretty little bag. Report at 11:00. :o)
This is the easiest pattern and is a delight to knit. So thrilling! Yes, knitting can be thrilling AND build character (courage, patience).


Song from the Suds

Queen of my tub, I merrily sing,
While the white foam raises high,
And sturdily wash, and rinse, and wring,
And fasten the clothes to dry;
Then out in the free fresh air they swing,
Under the sunny sky.

I wish we could wash from our hearts and our souls
The stains of the week away,
And let water and air by their magic make
Ourselves as pure as they;
Then on the earth there would be indeed
A glorious washing day!

Along the path of a useful life
Will heart's-ease ever bloom;
The busy mind has no time to think
Of sorrow, or care, or gloom;
And anxious thoughts may be swept away
As we busily wield a broom.

I am glad a task to me is given
To labor at day by day;
For it brings me health, and strength, and hope,
And I cheerfully learn to say-
"Head, you may think; heart, you may feel;
But hand, you shall work always!"

-Louisa May Alcott


Off to give Katie some breakfast and dress for school...she wants sugar toast.
Guess I'll give her some vitamins too!
