My Domestic Side

Keeping myself entertained in the car as we drive
all over this country to meet with teachers,
students and do various mission assignments
has been a
real challenge.
Our car is standard missionary issue----
no air conditioning, no radio, NO CD player.
The hours can become long and tedious sometimes.
So, my friend Jann has been a blessing---
she has helped me learn how to do Swedish weaving.
I spend hours working on little projects
like these dish towels.
I love it, it's so simple that even I could figure it out,
but I think that they turned out lovely.
Probably too pretty to ever really use to
dry pans and pots.

I love your, "Even I could figure it out." Those are just beautiful! I can't believe you don't have a tape deck or CD player in your car! Mostly, I can't believe you still have that same car! Sheesh!
