She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night… She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff… She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple… Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates. –Excerpts from Proverbs 31

I’m grateful to be married to an industrious, skillful, Proverbs 31 woman who delights in the work of her hands and contributing to the household economy. Of particular noteworthiness is her newest creation–a beautiful Regency-era ball gown ensemble, newly-completed and up for auction on eBay.
