All is well at Blankenship Acres and we are fine. I’m working on my knitting and reading, as usual. I simply don’t have much to say lately and I’ve stepped back from my usual social media sites for a break. My favorite site has had more than a little anti-Catholic stuff going on and I’ll just wait until folks get that out of their system.
I know people are unhappy, Catholics and non-Catholics alike. There is so much that is negative in the church lately, I don’t even want to see another photo of the pope, or Nancy Pelosi. It makes me ill. I love being Catholic. I don’t love what has happened to my church and I’m weary of having it crammed down my throat.
On the plus side, the Pro Life movement is winning and making great strides. States Rights have been reasserted and the people are taking back control over our communities.
Have a blessed July 4th. Be safe and enjoy time with family and friends. I’ll be back to posting regularly next week after I’ve recharged my batteries.
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
