Keep Calm Craft On: Shawls and Sweater W.I.P.

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On…

This week, the girls and I made some felted balls for rainbow garlands.

I'm currently working on not one but two shawls!

Boneyard Shawl

Oaklet Shawl

I've also started knitting a simple cardigan for myself with Peace Fleece yarn. I'm absolutely in love with the colour Wild Mustard.

Happy crafting on!

This Week - Cette semaine

It looks nothing like spring here…

On ne se croirait pas au printemps...

Still, we changed our nature table, decorated it with some green for Saint Patrick's Day and to remind us that spring does officially start this weekend. We shared a special Saint Patrick's homeschool day with our homeschooling friends. We went for a walk in the woods followed by a green lunch, leprechaun story and painting.

Nous avons quand même changé notre table des saisons, la décorant de vert pour la Saint-Patrick et pour nous rappeler que le printemps débute officiellement ce week-end. Nous avons célébré la Saint-Patrick avec nos amis qui font aussi l'instruction en famille. La journée a commencé par une marche en forêt, suivie d'un repas tout vert, d'un conte de farfadets et se terminant avec une activité de peinture.  

Irish Soda Bread

green hummus, guacamole and smoothies

Happy spring!

Bon printemps!

May my love be for you
In the spirit-realm.
May my soul 
Find your soul.
May my thinking of your being
Ease your cold,
Ease your heat.
In this way, we shall be united:
I with you,
You with me.

Meditation by R. Steiner

I would like to thank all of you who have left comments here and sent messages to us. Your kind, gentle words, thoughts and prayers have truly helped lift us up.

We are slowly coming back to life after a week spent in a very peaceful and healing place in magical Costa Rica...

finding strength in nature

nursing in the jungle!

feeling both warmed and refreshed

our eyes filled with new sights and beauty

can you see the monkey?

watching the monkeys play at a wildlife rescue shelter

well nourished

we even celebrated a twelfth birthday!

so soothing to knit outside while listening to the tropical birds, insects and wind in the trees

I am grateful for this week in Costa Rica, it has helped me to reconnect with myself (after feeling so lost), my family and all life. It has given me some new energy. However, it will be difficult to heal from this loss. I know that this experience is about finding strength, learning to accept, surrender and let go with love.  

May my soul's love strive to you
May my love's meaning stream to you.
May they bear you
May they hold you
In the heights of hope,
In the spheres of love.
