On the way home from the store I saw one of my favorite views of Mt. Hood. There is a plant nursery shown below Mt. Hood in this photo. I have shopped there but resisted stopping there that day. I was eager to get home and construct the trellises around the planters.
By God's grace, I was able to follow the wordless sketched assembly instructions. In this case, a picture really was worth a thousand words! The metal trellises surround the planters and should be a stable support for the Sweet Pea vines on the left and the Clematis vines on the right.
This dishcloth flew off my knitting needles on the West Coast USA and landed safely on the East Coast USA to help my since kindergarten friend celebrate her 70th birthday.
Showers of blooms have been bursting out around me! Currently, these Bleeding Heart blossoms by my front step are my favorite. In our neighborhood, we have Azalea bushes blooming in red, pink, lavender, purple, white, yellow, and orange. There are also Dogwood trees blooming in pink and white, Magnolias in pink and white, and Cherries in pink and white. What varieties of blooms do you have around you in your season of Spring?
In this last week of April, some of the ladies at church brought the beautiful crafting from their hands to gift folks who are patients at a nearby hospital. While our focus has been producing blankets and hats for babies who spend time in the NICU, some of the ladies have been knitting and crocheting larger blankets that have been given to older children who have had to be in the ER. The church also received a thank you note from a Hospice patient who found comfort in the blanket given to her from the ones the ladies made in the last collection of blankets we donated. The hospital volunteer coordinator said that especially in this last year since hospital visitors have been so limited, they have been glad to have the homemade gifts to give to patients to encourage their healing...which encourages us to know as well!
Have you been enjoying showers of crafting in your life?
