Embroidery

  • Embroidery is all about capturing form and texture to please the eye.  I tend to get carried away with all my ideas and don't focus on the technique as much.  So although this might not be competition material, it most certainly is enjoyable!

Hi there! I am an South African expat, living in the lovely Kent countryside in the UK.
I love everything meaningful and beautiful - so I try my hand at photography, painting, embroidery, needlework, cooking and writing.

My inspiration for all of this: the people that I love,
and the love that God has for me.

Exercise and fitness

I often find that I work really hard to look good outwardly – working out at the gym regularly, dressing properly in order to make a good impression. But I so easily forget that God isn’t blinded by my manners or impressed by my correct conversations because He knows that the not so healthy thoughts that I foster in my heart WILL some or other time pop out of my mouth, or even explode into inexplicable actions.

 

I have had enough of praying!

Every morning, the last touch on my newly-made bed is the two handfuls of ornamental hearts that remind me to pray for my children and grandchildren – that God would keep them safe and that their lives would glorify his Name, whether in their relationships, their work or play.

On the receiving end…

When I go through life tagging along my emotional baggage neatly stuffed into a hip “trolley suitcase”, I will find it very hard to trust God.
