the day is finished~

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in' forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day, you shall begin it well and serenely..." Ralph Waldo Emerson I am in search of serene. A week with the flu has left me blundering... But I have done what I could... rested... slept... read... no knitting... but I wanted to show you this... nothing absurd... wool strips hooked on a woolen background. hand dyed wool.. made into a pocket... reminiscent of the Early American pockets... a bag...a purse of sorts. can hold your knitting... or some small essentials. the pattern is a simple flower, Autumn colors... in a flower pot... Something to remember the day that is finished... and tomorrow we start anew.....

A beautiful pocket and a beautiful post.
T - it wasn't the swine flu was it? Glad you are on the mend. So many have had the flu this year.

Love the quote. I like the part about each day being a fresh start :)

I've never seen anything like your hand hook designs ~ so creative ~ you must some day explain more!

The pocket is truly adorable. And I love the sentiment in the poem - so often I lose sleep because I don't think like this more often. Thank you for sharing it.

Oh, what an original design! You certainly must be feeling better to be able to get those creative juices so beautifully directed.

I once tried to make a hooked rug and just did not get it right at all. Now, I am inspired to try again.

Mmm yes indeed - the clean slate of a new day
Aww, lovely! I hope you're feeling better. Sending chamomile and honey hugs your way.

T i have to tell you i think i saw your doppleganger at the grocery store today. i kept looking back at the woman and almost wondered if i should ask her name, but then remembered you lived much further away from the city and it wouldn't make sense for you to go grocery shopping in the city when you live much further out. ridiculous i know, but amusing :)

You are inspiring me to pick up my rug hooking again, I have 1/2 a flag - seems fitting to think about it the night before Veteran's day!

Rahlp Waldo and Henry David....they knew the truth.
Your hand hooked items are so beautiful. Such rich colors.
So sorry you have been down with the flu, but glad your are on the mend.

Beautiful hooking, T. I'm sorry you were sick this week. That's not the best situation for creativity. Or anything for that matter! I'm glad you're feeling better :)

I love your sweet pocket, and that lovely quote. A perfect way to start my morning—serenely.

You can never go wrong with RWE...but that particular quote was very fitting for the days of this week and last. Thanks for the message.

I saw it on Ravelry first, but your pocket is gorgeous. Hope you are feeling better by this point!

Why has it taken me this long to find your blog? The quote by Emerson is amazing...I need to tuck that into my spiritual pocket and pull that out at the end of each day...
