Busy Hands, Busy Hearts

On a recent visit to blogland I came across a link to this post. It was written so beautifully about why we sew and create for our children, grandchildren, loved ones. I just had to share it. Here is an extract:
"... stitching our love has always been a way to care for, protect and delight, to tell them we are their mothers, grandmothers, friends. To cover them in our love, like no machine made, money bought thing can. We give them our handsewn hearts to play with, wear and sleep under. We try to construct a future from a patchwork of well worn wishes, passed down. Health and happiness I hope for my children just as every link in the chain before me. Mother’s and parents with busy hands, we pray for our children’s bodies, hearts and souls."

How precious is that!

Also sharing with you a video on colour using colouring pencils.
A project for the kids in the holidays perhaps???.....perhaps not.
