Healing in Autumn

Flashback Summer: Healing in Autumn - vintage shawl warm outfit

Dang, it is a rough "day after" for us Americans.  The election has been a really horrible process for all parties, and there is a lot of pain and division in our country.  Thus I've got just a nice, easy outfit post to look at for today.

I'm not going to say much besides that.  Please pray for the U.S. and us Americans!  We would appreciate it greatly.

  2. We've been through something similar with Brexit in the UK. All I can say is: don't give up! Keep spreading the love and tolerance and warmth.

  3. Ooh, which pattern did you use for the shawl? A name or link would be nice for the Ravelers among us :)

    1. I will give you the link, but I didn't post one because... well, mine doesn't look like it, haha! It was my first shawl, and I may have killed the pattern. Hopefully you'll do a better job than me: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/grammas-hug

  5. My thoughts go out to your family and your church family -- I know you have a very multicultural church, and there are a lot of worries right now.

    Thank you for the beautiful outfit post!

    1. Aw, thanks Tegan! I'm feeling hopeful about things. Mostly the self-imposed division among Americans is what is the saddest part to me, not even the results of the election itself!

  6. Lovely shawl! Even if you botched the pattern, that's OK because it looks really nice, in the pictures at least :) I love how you have paired it with a "dressier" skirt and accessories.
    Also- I love your new blog design!

    1. Haha, well thank you! I'm very glad. I was hoping the flaws would only be apparent to me as the maker, and that seems the case. And thanks for the blog compliment! I'm liking it better, too.

  7. 1. I applaud you greatly for getting up and not only blogging, but writing even just a wee bit about the election. I had an extremely hard time even trying to function, let alone blog.

    2. This outfit is stunning! Those gloves!!!
