Hello my friends. I do trust this finds you well, and staying safe. I managed to visit everyone last week, which was just SO good – but, oh Kathryn – I do wish I could comment on your post. Your work is so very beautiful. My desk this week looks distinctly lacking in energy! I haven’t managed to do any more to the robin from last week because…
…Do you remember playing with these ideas when you were young? A friend from church who works for an organisation supporting people with special needs asked if I could come up with some simple craft ideas for the clients as the organisation were putting together newsletters each week to help with the long hours in the house. So, I have come up with these, provided templates and worksheets. Quite takes me back to when I was teaching and providing worksheets for the pupils! Told my elder daughter… and yes, the charity she works with are doing the same thing – so all the details have winged their way across the border!
My addiction is showing… Yes, I have completed another jigsaw in the early evenings – the light is good until I need to turn on the electric lights – and when that happens…
… I’m busy doing this baby blanket for a couple who come to my church twice a year. They provided the yarn, I simply provided the time and the crochet hook. Two long rows crocheted together and the rest of the squares are there on the arm of the settee waiting to be put together. Then I will simply crochet round and round the outside until I have used up all their yarn. Then I shall need to find something else to do when I turn on the lights in the evening!
So, that’s me this week folks. I have only been out once all week – apart from gardening – because I didn’t need any shopping – so I shall be braving the rigours of the queues on Thursday in preparation for the Easter weekend.
Have a very special Easter. Remember that Jesus came into a world torn apart with strife, conflict, hunger, prejudice – not unlike today, really – and He lived and died, then rose again – for you and me.
Take care. Stay safe. God bless you.
