The Scraps Project
everyday is a journey.
A man's own observation,
what he finds good of,
and what he finds hurt of,
is the best physic to preserve health.
But it is a safer conclusion to say,
"This agreeth not well with me,
therefore I will not continue it";
than to say, "I find no offense of this,
therefore I may use it."
For strength of nature in youth
passeth over many excesses,
which are owing a man till his age.
I love projects! I'm very excited about this one! The Scraps Project is where we make blankets for the homeless out of scrap yarn. There is always leftover yarn (scraps) no matter the project we were working on. Just as with all other projects, we will give ourselves a year's time to make as many as possible and then pass them out to the homeless just in time for Winter.
That's the idea, but I know that the time constraints will be difficult. We all have numerous responsibilities, we won't always be able to work as effectively on this project as we would like to. There will be slow days and busy days. There will be days where we will be unable to lay down the blanket and days where it won't be touched at all. Let's see what we can do.
It can be a small leftover ball.
Remember the coat of many colors? Not the story of Joseph in the bible, but the song from Dolly Parton. As we near the closure of the plastic homeless mats project, God has placed a new one in my heart. Your support is needed in the form of yarn and prayers. Let God guide our fingers and hands as we go forth offering clothing for the naked.
Have a blessed day everyone.
