Good Morning Lovely Friends and Visitors of course and welcome to my wee bit of cyber space, so delighted that you pop in.
I hope everyone is well, but for those who are not, I wish you hugs and a speedy recovery.
Dodgy day weather wise this morning, sunny then dark skies, not sure what it's going to do, but I have no plans to be going out so It can do what it likes, hope the weather is good where you are. We had a lovely walk along Rosemarkie beach on Sunday, looking for dolphins, but they weren't out playing, so just had to have and ice cream instead, with a flake too, naughty, naughty.
Anyway, I've been busy over the last few days making little keepsakes for the ladies in my craft group. As those of you know who follow my blog, I am being made redundant in June, so this Satuday will be our last get together as a craft group. I have been really amazed at the commitment of these folk, coming along even when they weren't feeling too well, and joing in the crafting. Their makes were so very individual and lovely, I've shown some of them, and I'm so pleased to say that at the end of the session all felt better. I really do believe that crafting, any crafting is so theraputic...especially for those who experience poor mental health.
So, I 've been wondering what could I make for them to remember their time in the craft group, but also their time at Cairdeas Cottage, where we have the project, which is completely going as the NHS Highland is pulling our funding, here is what I came up with;
MDF hearts with elements that I hope will reflect something of that person. One young woman makes the most fabulous cross stitch pictures, so I've made hers with lots of sewing elements, anothe r loves knitting, so you can see there is one for her, another its flowers. I've also tried to look for sentiments that suit, one young woman has always been told by her father that she is rubbish and no good, the sentiment I chose for her tells her that she is special. The owl heart is for my colleauge who sometimes faciltitaes the group, she loves these creatures, and I know that she dreams of going on to study once her little ones are up a bit. I hope I've managed to let them know that they will be missed and thought about as they cope without our service.
I won't list what I've used, too much.
It remains for me to say thank you for all the fab comments on the Star Box, I really do appreciate each and every one.
Hope to see you soon, enjoy your day whatever your up to and take care,
All My Love
