|A felted feelie heart...|
Following along with last week's post about stitching with purpose, let me share "Feelie Hearts" with you. I first learned about the hearts in the wonderful Rachel Naomi Remen's "My Grandfather's Blessings". Bridges, a bereavement center in Washington, gives the hearts to children who have been touched by death. These tactile hearts are small enough to be carried around, providing comfort. I loved the idea, and have recently made my own hearts to give to loved ones for condolence gifts. A sweet and simple way to share your heart.
It is summer and my garden is going strong. In early July I planted green beans for the first time.. and WOW did they take off! The vines seemed grow inches overnight. So thrilled to watch the blossoms grow into beans. The essence of life...
My cat Maya is settling in. Though still shying away from touching, after almost 6 months, she will play with me now. She is quite a sweet one. Patience is still a key word.
