Kathy sent me this quote over the weekend. Such a nice one. Having grown up in Texas, and being of a certain age, I had heard it "back in the day." And, it never hurts to remember it. I have been fascinated by people making up these little "kits" these days, so had a couple handy. I thought I could use one to make a pincushion and wouldn't it be nice to use the quote Kathy had sent. Indeed! A really good idea. So, here you are, a place to begin.
These days, I am much better at dreaming up a project than I am actually making it. I keep telling myself they are here patiently waiting for me to begin and I should take them up on it. Never give up I say.
That piece of lace in pink and yellow...right there on the right side of the photo...I painted that an age ago. Not even realizing what I was doing today...I placed a yellow heart pin and a pink pin into that little bundle and didn't realize it until I took the photo. Just a little visual treat, I would say. A happy little accident. Serendipity.
Some of the "ingredients" peeking out the side of the little bundle. Oh, my goodness.....I will never get tired of playing with all this stuff!!!

Seems to me we are in need of lots of Hope these days....so let's all plant or sew more flowers!
