It's only in relatively recent years that the medicos have discovered how much our attitudes and state of mind affect our health! Jealousy and wanting what other people have is very bad for one's physical, mental and spiritual well-being!
Hubby and I used to love collecting shells, learning their names and finding out everything we could about them. It was a very peaceful pastime, so I designed a block with a shell to reflect a heart at peace.
Of course, we can only know true peace of heart and mind, when we know the Prince of Peace - Jesus. That is my testimony - in spite of all the emotions, trauma, grief, sadness and exhaustion of watching my darling hubby decline with dementia, God has given me His amazing peace.
Block 6 has been sent out to those who have subscribed to Timeless Truths BOM. If you wish to join this project, the cost is a one-off $20 which covers the whole pattern for the year.
I don't seem to have a lot of time these days to be creating beautiful bags, quilts and stitching accessories as I used to. Sometimes my creative energies have flowed in other directions, but one thing that hasn't changed is that I still can't bear to watch TV without having some stitching in my hands! I have enjoyed working on this beautiful vintage printed linen and then crocheting a pretty edge for it.
While I had the crochet hook out, I decided to make a garter for our grand-daughter's wedding which is coming up soon. I don't know whether she will want to wear it, but at least it's something pretty to put in her drawer!
