The Recipe for Success

The Recipe for Success

There is much planning going on today at Casa delKatknits.

That means my week will be busy, but it will be so worth it come Thursday…
The Land of the Free (?) and the Home of the Brave (?)

The Land of the Free (?) and the Home of the Brave (?)

 

The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” she cries
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
– Emma Lazarus

But…

If I had unlimited resources this would be my list of ‘Hang Out’ places

Errors and Education

Errors and Education

If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. – William J. Clinton

Last week I shared that I had made several mistakes in a weaving project and my decision was to go back, fix the errors, and begin again.

Now here it is Monday and I am happy to announce that I fixed the problems – it was not easy, but it was not impossible! I made the errors because I over thought the threading pattern and the process.
