Can anyone relate?

Okay... you've heard of "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"... well I feel like I belong to the Sisterhood of the Retiring Pants.

That's right... I had to retire another pair of jeans today.  

You get them broke in, nice and comfy and then one day they are thin enough to see the light through them or a hole has ripped through at the knees or elsewhere and it's time to let them go.

Twenty years ago I would have worn them with the blown out knees or a tiny rip in the bottom, but not anymore.

It's hard giving up that beloved pair that wraps you like a warm hug, but alas there comes a time when you have to cut ties.

Can anyone relate?  

To me there is nothing more comfortable then a well wore in pair of jeans.

Anyway... the jeans are retired from being worn on my body (that takes care of the work bit) but will live on as a tote bag or something.  :)


I have seen a lot of the quilting followers I have and also those I follow being very busy with quilting in the past week.  

It puts me to shame, in a way, because I have not been as productive.  I have done some crocheting but am not as far along as I'd like to be there either.   

I was working on a Mug Rug... trying to do a 'crazy quilt' pattern and the crazy bit got the best of me... twice.  So I set them aside and have decided to do something a little simpler.  I hope to get started on that tomorrow.   

Keep your fingers crossed, I might even take a picture of it.   :)


Well... I guess that's it for now.    My final thought for you is...

May you walk with the Lord and feel His presence in your life.

God bless and keep you,

Beauty of Giving
