Homemaking Mondays: In Progress

Thanks for dropping by! 

We have been enjoying some lovely warmer weather here in the Yukon. 
It's been up close to and then over the freezing point.  
It has been so nice to sit out on our bench under the trees by our home 
watching the birds at the feeder nearby. 

We have also been blessed with some more snow! 
Not a lot, about four-five inches.
 Then the wind came and it was like avalanches coming off of the trees.
It was quite moist snow and so it was a bit of a work out to shovel.

  Today I have some in progress items to share with you. 
I rescued an old birdhouse from the dump and added some wood 
we had to the roof as it was missing. 
It is now slated to be re-painted before spring 
when I hope it will be used once again.

I absolutely love the gift of having birds around my home. 
It always makes me think of God's great care and provision for all 
of His precious creation, even me.  
Our lives and very souls are in the hands of the Lord when we have been saved
by the Lord Jesus Christ.  Through repentance and faith in the Jesus of the Bible.

Luke 12:6-7
 "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows."

Then I have some socks that are partially finished.
Still learning how to do the different stages.
I'm trying to still learn some practical skills.
There are always things to learn...but I am seeking 
to learn things that have more value then just for looks.

Lastly I have a crochet project on the go as well.  
It is of an octopus pillow. 
It will be a gift for a special little someone that enjoys octopus.  
The pattern can be purchased HERE if you're interested.

Thank you for dropping in.  
Do you have some in progress things to share?

Love and Prayers,

We had a little snow overnight but it doesn't last very long here for which I am thankful. The octopus looks fun.

Your winter images are so pretty!

I can't wait to see the octopus pillow when it's done. When I was in my teens, I used to collect stuffed octopus toys. But I downsized my collection when I moved.

I'm patiently waiting for our birds to return.
