I’m only 10 sleeps away from my daughter’s wedding and I’m getting increasingly excited about it. If I feel this way then my daughter and her fiancé must be erupting with excitement 🙂
In between all my excitement I’ve made time to do two mini projects to keep me grounded. One is a charity project ready for taking to the Festival of Quilts in a fortnight’s time and the other is one to help me keep close to my God.
Last year Project Linus UK asked quilters to make house blocks for this year’s show. They will be collected in, joined together and made into quilts for sick or disadvantaged children. When I heard about it from Mandy’s blog I thought it was such a simple thing for me to do which could make a difference to someone. I had hoped to make a few but with everything going on here I’ve settled on making just one (or maybe two if I can find the time).
The other ‘grounding’ project was to make a Christian version of Buddhist prayer flags to hang in my garden. (I know they are nothing alike really but it was just an inspiration 😉 )
Earlier this year someone gave me a Celtic prayer and I thought it was just beautiful so I made some very simple bunting, unhemmed and simply decorated, and I have written the prayer on using a permanent marker.
I’m hoping that as the bunting blows about in the breeze it will become a bit unravelled and have a lovely soft appearance. And hopefully as I look out of my window I will see it and be reminded to take a moment to breathe out any stress and breathe in God’s peace.
Of course you could use this idea to display a favourite poem or saying in your garden.
Until next time,
