This week we celebrated another birthday in our household. My six year old granddaughter, Molly, made a pretty flower fabric stuffed heart as a much loved gift; and I have been enjoying the gifts that my dear blogging friends, Taci, Betsy, and Teresa gave me last week. Taci gave me hand made soap and facecloths she crocheted. Betsy gave me a flower crocheted pin she made, some lovely lime cotton yarn, a perky wooden bird and a neat dpn sock needle guard she and her husband, Dennis, made. Teresa gave me some super soft acrylic gray yarn, a beaded zipper pull and a pretty necklace she made that has a Venetian blue glass bead on it. Thank you so much again, Ladies.
Saturday morning seven members of our household visited a new to us flower nursery near us in between some April showers. While we don't have Bluebells dancing in fields around us, as I have seen on some blog posts recently, we have been enjoying the pretty blue flowers that are spreading out in the flower bed in the front of our house.
Then on Saturday afternoon I attended the worship art group at a nearby
church. Our facilitator made the heart on the far right. I made the reddish heart on the lower left. We started off with white watercolor paper and spread blobs of paint over the whole sheet. After that dried some of us took a cardboard heart shaped stencil and traced around it. Some of us then took a splatter brush and splattered drops of paint on the heart and then used white paint around the heart shape. After that was dry some of us then started writing heart themed Scripture verses around the heart. We took group photos and everyone gave me permission to show you their work. Isn't the uniqueness of each work fun to see?
