Yesterday was my first Ash Wednesday!!! Shortly after my husband and I married he converted to Catholicism and I did not. I made the decision this past summer to convert so I have been attending RCIA classes every Tuesday. I was allowed to participate in Ash Wednesday and tomorrow evening my husband and I are going to do the Stations of the Cross. This is all new to me so I am learning. I didn't realize how much it would mean to me to wear the ashes I am looking forward to my confirmation and eucharists. Not to sure about the confession part, but I will get to do that in a few weeks. I have a small project I have been working on. I think I needed a quick finish.
Today I went to my local needlework shop and made a few purchases. Most of my purchases were Gloriana Threads which will be arrive in a few weeks. I have a special project I am working on which requires these beautiful threads. I can't wait to get them so I can start stitching on my project. We also stopped by Best Buy, Barnes & Nobel and had lunch at LaMadeline. I finished my day off with getting my hair done. My roots are gone, my roots are gone WOOOOOHOOOO!
A real quick post to share the snow with everyone again.....
The above photo is of our back yard. Looks like we got about 6 inches. Below is out our front door first thing this morning before anyone else was up. Except for John who I heard yell "Yes, no school today!!!"
I have enjoyed needlework for as long as I can remember. I have always loved old samplers and vintage design styles. I am a mom to three boys and work full time so I squeeze my needlework passion in my limited free time.
