Slow Sunday

I'm spending my Sunday in slow mode. After spending the morning at the Urgent Care with an eye infection (that's what happens when you spend every work day in a room with 150 kids!), I came home to the new book my husband brought me last night (a late Christmas gift- I love it!) and more yarn. I finished the green scarf and sent it in to be delivered to the teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School, so while I was in scarf making mode, I started one for myself. These scarves are super easy to make using the blanket (or woven) stitch as the base and edged with single crochet.
I am also loving the images in the book 'My Heart Wanders' by Pia Jane Bijkerk. Very inspiring.






Here are some resources if you're interested in any of the things listed above.

I'm back to enjoying my slow Sunday. I hope you are doing the same~  Juli
