It's a new day it's a new dawn...

This time of year is all about a fresh start.
"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning,
but anyone can start today and make a new ending."
We are only hours away from Yom Kippur.
We are given the day of atonement as a gift.
To be introspective.
To contemplate.
And most importantly, to ask for forgiveness.
Because G-d knows that we are all good in our essence.
But we are humans.
And we will make mistakes.
That's ok.
If we learn from them they are not mistakes.
They are life lessons.
Cleansing our soul spiritually gives our body the energy to move forward.
When I want to start something new,
I need to close up the old.
So before I start any projects with renewed energy
I  force myself to dig it out
(when it's under something you can pretend it doesn't exist, or you 'forgot')
and get it done.
So here it is.
I'm finishing this one here...

(Layla get ready. This one's for you)

I also did this little number.
Just some mindless knitting.
If you want the pattern e-mail me.
It's really easy.
If you can knit with big bulky needles!

And then I finally finished both of these just in time for fall.
Dassa and Yaffa, here they come!

I loved making these sweaters.
At least 60 hours on each one.
Well worth it though.

I hope this year will bring us all pretty gifts
tied up in big fancy bows
with glitter and glitz!
side splitting laughter
and most important
To life to life,
And to quote my Chanale the songwriter...


Have you ever felt uncertain
By the twists and turns of life
And it seems that there’s a curtain
Across the heaven’s skies
Don’t you know there is always One
Looking out for you
You’re an only child before His eyes
And He knows what you’re going through
May you be blessed
May you see His Grace in everything you need
May Hashem fulfill your every heart’s desire
Yimalai Hashem Mishailos Libcha Letovah
Have you stood at the bedside
Of a young and ailing child
And you wonder when the day will come
Will you ever see that smile
Have you found the one whose soul you share
Built a family of your own
As you stand under the canopy
You pray for peace in your new home
Does the promise of redemption
Ever seem remote and far
Your faith is strong but it’s been too long
You can't take it anymore...........

It's been a year since I began this blog.

It's a new day it's a new dawn....
And I'm ready for what's to come...
