I was just not in the mood for blogging. But life goes on, and life is good.
A couple of days after my last post, a boy from our community took his own life. He was 15 years old. We know the family and it was devastating as you can imagine.
It felt like he was everybody's kid. What a tragedy. Now, after the funeral, things are going back to "normal". For that family and many other people, life will never be the same. Heavenly Father in his infinite wisdom and compassion will take care of them. We pray that they can find comfort and peace.
So, not much of crafting going on here.
I am starting some projects for Brenda's birthday later this month.
But, I was able to make a little gift for a boy from our church that turned 8.
In our faith, the kids are baptized at this age.
I found this cute craft at Rachel Berry's blog. Here is how my first CTR towel turned out.
Sorry, I don't have a picture of the towel tied with a bow and the baptism poem, but Rachel has it all on her tutorial.
The boy loved it ! His parents and grandma liked it a lot too.
A sweet little gift and very affordable. I got a nice white towel at Home Goods. I had the blue fabric and other materials at home.
Let's try to focus on the happy beautiful moments.
Like a lovely foxglove from my little garden patch. Spring is a miracle!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
