yarn along

Still working on my precious cowl, my first venture into lace + I really love it.

Still reading My Antonia but also reading The Railway Children with phoebe while the other kids are napping and I love this book so much.  I can’t remember if I ever made it through the whole thing as a child, but it is actually quite engaging for me now.  I find myself looking forward to snuggling up with Phoebe and finding out what these three delightful children will be up to next.  I especially like that they are good figures for Phoebe to look up to: adventurous, looking out for the interests of others, honest, helpful, loving and compassionate, while trying to solve the difficult circumstances they find themselves in.  It gives us some simple talking points about behaviors that we admire and want to cultivate in our own home.  Mostly though, we just read it and I let her draw her own conclusions. 🙂  This old copy was given to me as a child by my grandpa on my tenth birthday so it’s a treasure and we love the watercolor paintings that accompany the story.

Joining with Ginny today.
