Down To Earth Hands

A dear member at the forums met up with several old friends last week. One of these friends remarked upon seeing  HH's hands that she had "Really let herself go!" Yes. Really. How very, very rude but then we got to chatting about how wonderful our hard-working hands truly are. If they longer look like the hands of a teenage girl then that is testament to their years of service to us and our families. Another member rightly suggested that HH had "let herself go....of pointless and shallow social restraints" Well said Sarah!

So here are mine after an hour weeding yesterday...

These wonderful, wondrous hands also patted pets, knit a few rows of my blanket, turned pages of books, fit together jigsaw pieces, washed dishes, folded laundry, typed here, made several wholesome meals as well as a myriad of other clever things yesterday!

Here are some of the pets I patted...Gypsy, Gemma and Cleo...

Love these "puppies".

Staying true to "Stop-tober", a month of buying only food and real necessities, I popped into the op-shop on my way home from Gordie's and bought another 2 big jigsaws for $2 each.

The Christmas Swap is now open at the forum, this is the fourth year and we see some fantastic craft skills in the hand-made decorations we swap with members all over the world. Next week several local members are meeting 2 NSW members who are both here at the same time, we're going to take a shared picnic lunch to King's Park overlooking the city.

I do wish you a wonderful Wednesday,
Love from Sue
