I've grown to love to work with my hands to create usable items when I have a few free moments or when we are watching a movie. I've noticed that Emma does the same thing - she's always grabbing her knitting.
I also like this stitchery from Rhonda at the Down To Earth blog. She posted this pattern to use several years ago, and I made it in a smaller version as part of a pillow for my sister in law, and now I am making it for a friend as a wall hanging.
My friend Cheryl gave me a gift of her hands when we visited on Wednesday. A beautiful homemade table runner for my large table! It's perfect! I have been looking for one, but not finding what I wanted, and I was contemplating making one myself. Now I don't need to and I can be reminded of my friend's thoughtfulness and love whenever I see it.
I know that so many of you are talented, creating beauty for your homes everyday.
