Can you believe we are halfway through 2011?
Today begins the holy month of Ramadan ... a time to draw closer to God and for self-reflection. Muslims around the world will fast from sunup til sundown and remember those less fortunate, placing more emphasis on religious actions rather than daily habits and routines.
Summer is almost over (although our hot summer temps will hang around for months to come).
"Aficionados of August revel in relinquishment. When it's one hundred degrees in the shade, it's too hot to be anything but receptive and reflective. Let a seasonally sanctioned sojourn of slow joys refill the authentic reservoir of creative energy ..." (Simple Abundance, A Daybook of Comfort and Joy, Sarah Ban Breathnach)
I have been happily crocheting away. My second jar cover complete. Made up as I go along.
And I am finding great joy in crocheting these little gift bags. I decided to try out the same thin cotton I use for my doilies so the pouches are coming out smaller and just perfect for holding a little something sweet (Godiva chocolate perhaps).
In fact, I have some ideas for embellishing them so back to the hook and yarn.
Have a beautiful new week! Peace & blessings, Tammy
