Yellow is my favourite colour and she made me a yellow valentine! The dear hand crafted frame is hanging in my bedroom above my dresser and it makes me smile often. So many good crafty treats as well as the BEST decaf coffee I have ever had. Really, decaf coffee is an awkward oxymoron at the best of times but Texas knows their stuff! DH LOVED the full blend. Everything was a blessing, thank you Oranges!!
I made a wee neck cozy for a friend.
a wee Mug Hug for another
finished a baby sweater for a wee one who arrived in February
did up my first pair of mitts
finished off this cardi for me
made slippers for Grama Tink
and slippers for the Captain of the Good Ship Lollipop.
I have been learning how to make Victorian lamp shades. It will take done time. It is very relaxing to sit and stitch. I will post more about this later and edit in a link of where the idea came from for me.
So there is my lent craft wise recap. It was a little season of reflection, thankfulness, encouragement, blessing, and rejuvenation for my soul. Next year we will think of something good to add to our daily lives rather than take away. Not that there is any hard fast rule for us, it is just a practice we have enjoyed doing as a family, and that is always a precious thing.
