|Road Less Travelled |
Quilt of Valor
60 x 70 inches
The Road Less Travelled
by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Road Less Travelled is QOV #110

|Worlds Without End|
by Greg Olsen
I saw a large print of the painting at the Nativity Walk that I attended with Sue in early December. I marveled at the image and sent a photo to Kristi (Thankful Me) when she commented that the Nativity Walk sounded a lot like the one her church hosts. Kristi told me the name of the painting and the artist, which is what directed me to the website where my finger hovered over the "order" button.
Pondering who sent the mystery gift, I came to the conclusion that it must be Kristi since she is the only one who knew specifics about the painting. After I thanked Kristi in an email, she confirmed that the print was from her. This print reminds me that the mysteries of the Universe are not mysteries to God and that He marvels in them and in us.
Kristi, thank you again for the print, Worlds Without End.

|Zombie BBQ socks|
I keep a project in my Tuesday Night Knitting bag: an easy project that doesn't require a lot of attention, so I can chat. Currently, my project is using the Zombie BBQ yarn that Ellen gave me last March.
Since I only work on the socks on Tuesday evenings, they aren't progressing very fast, but they are fun to knit. Thanks again for this fun yarn, Ellen!
