He knows my name!

My life verse: "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3). For me, "the treasures of darkness" has been the medically-treated depression that I have suffered off and on with for years. More than anything else in my life, I think this has made me realize how much my Savior loves me and has deepened my relationship with God. The "hidden riches of secret places" are my wonderful family and this fabulous craft--tatting! I thank God for both!
I think it is awesome that God knows my name! Did you know that He knows yours?

"Mr. and Mrs. Turtle"

Two posts from me in less than two days--I know that is very unusual, but I just had to show these off!

Look what came in the mail today!! My wonderful husband custom ordered them for me from the Etsy shop "Banyek" as a "Just Because" present! (I've already got Mr. and Mrs. Turtle wound with thread for a class at the Finger Lakes Tatting Seminar this coming weekend!)


  1. How lovely what a lovely present

  2. Oh how sweet of that guy! really cute turtles!

  3. I love them. You are so blessed!!

  4. I'm curious if these are the only shuttles Banyek has made with hooks on them (in place of the pick). They are adorable! Perfect designs for you!

    And I wonder how long that beautiful carved (hollow) egg will be on his site, with the wood shuttle inside! A real collectors item and work of art! Well worth the price! I'm so tempted!!!

    Hope you have a great time at Finger Lakes!
