DIY Bobbin Holder

DIY Bobbin HolderOne thing that I have learned that makes color changing easier is to have bobbins and a bobbin holder. Last week I share with you my own FREE DIY Crochet Bobbins. But I really needed an efficient way to work with all those bobbins. This DIY bobbin holder is quick and easy and can be made for under $10!

I wanted something that held the bobbins away from each other, and I wanted separate holes for each piece of yarn. I also wanted it to be relatively easy to change the bobbins around.

How to Let Go And Give Control Back to God

Are you overwhelmed because you are controlling things you really have not control over? Do you need to know how to let go and give a few things back to God? Jesus says that His burden is light, and if we only take on what is actually ours to take on, then this is correct. But when we try to carry loads that are not ours to carry, we harm ourselves and those around us.

So this past weekend I have had to work on a weakness that I did not really recognize in myself. Which is funny because I can see it so clearly in others.

I have been working closely with God on these things over the last 10 years or so. Read more
