Devils Backbone At Dusk

I made this for my daughter for Christmas.  Last year she asked me for wall art with a tree theme, so this happened.  It is a state forest about an hour from here that I last visited in the autumn.  The inspiration was a quilt by McKenna Ryan, though it is not the same, just a similar style.  I will follow up with the sunrise piece, soon I hope.

Catching up

I missed the Sunday of Light.... but certainly have been thinking about it.  God is very good, and has all our needs in sight.  We sometimes don't have the same priorities, but then He sees the front of the tapestry, we see only the back.  This is Edith Zimmer's work.

My kitties are enjoying the weather....inside.  They are definitely comfort kitties, liking their cushions and covers.  But then, they are cats, so.....

Second Sunday in Advent- Love

Thanks to Mary Rodriguez for the beautiful photo

Dear Lord,
Through the darkness, I look for your wisdom.
I want my heart to be open to you.
But sometimes in these days, it seems that
so many things come between us.
Help me to be awake and aware
of the radiance you bring to my life.
Help me to be grateful each day
for the blessings of family and friends.
Let me be a peacemaker
in my own life, and in the world.
Let me pray especially for this difficult world
and those who are so in need of an end to violence.
My heart begs for this as my Advent prayer today.

A Gift

DH's niece lives in Chicago with her partner, and have a round table.  I hope this is a good topper, and that they like it.  It gave me joy to make it.
