Inspiration from the song "Sanctuary" and lyrics "Lord Prepare Me to Be a Sanctuary... strong and holy... tried and true. With thanksgiving, I'll be a living sanctuary for you."
Paper fabric... the more I do, the more I want to do - to explore the possibilities... more to be thought about, more to be interpreted and more to be created.
In the Bible, Genesis, tells us we were created in the image of God... and create He did, and so do we.
Inherent in all of us... is the desire to create.
A beaded piece I had made and put on a sweatshirt. I ditched the old sweatshirt... but I cut out the beaded and glittered fabric I had embellished the sweatshirt with... 'upcycled' -- perhaps, as they are wont to say these days. It's really just re-cycled in my opinion. Regardless... it found it's way here.
The message: GIVE HOPE to everyone.
Purple Hearts cut from devotionals I had printed out... is it recycled or upcycled? I get so confused... May we all have loyalty and strength to follow through with integrity, and to keep our word.
And threads... as they are 'cycled' through my fingers, from my head... to my sewing machine, and onto the quilt... and hopefully beyond, to someone else.
Tea in a cup! I pray I will have something warm and refreshing for someone who needs it at the time they really need it...
Sunshine and Light.
