The works of my hands is a post I wanted to do for a long time but always postponed. The result is that I'm left with a lot of unfinished projects to present.
Like the above cross stitched piece I plan to turn into a pin pillow or just frame it, not sure.
This project I started about a year ago. I hadn't cross stiched for about 30 years. When finally is finished it will be the long stripe of a cross body bag.
About this printed canvas all I can say is that I was drooling over it for some time. I decided to give it a go and finally added this one to my list of unfinished projects.
My pride and joy is this crochet blanket. I chose the colours out of my favourite byzantine icon and crochet it while listening to podcasts about the orthodox faith.
I feel like there is a lot to learn. ..so many things I have done wrong and yet here I am crocheting my past away and feeling hopeful placing my life in God's hands .
My other blanket is for when I want something easy to occupy my hands.
I love the warm earthy colours of it.
This almost finished bag is waiting for some decisions I'm not taking. ..like the inner lining and some metallic parts I have to buy
While shopping for water and wine everyday glassware (we are a very not careful family ) I spotted the above covers for my cooker. They brought so many fond memories from my childhood and a strong urge to spotlessly clean my kitchen
It sounds exhausting but I feel I get help.
And then something happens and I want my will to be done and the peace I feel disappears.
And this happens again and again but now I recognise the pattern. Especially when I have the Holy Communion I noticed that I get more help to understand my mistakes and I don't despair that easily.
I apologise for my inconsistent posts and the rare visits to your well written posts. Your comments mean a lot to me but life happens and has my priority.
Off to make coffee for me and husband and feed the cat!
