This life of mine

  I wish I was creative.
I'm useless at arts & crafts, and admire anyone who can take raw materials and fashion a piece of art out of them.

At the Thursday AA meeting there's a framed embroided picture on the wall. It's exquisite - poppies, roses, delphiniums, lots of other flowers I don't know the names of, all sewn in perfect satin stitch. There's an embroidered dedication to someone at the bottom. I love to look at it, marvelling at the work that went into it. It was a labour of love for someone.

I can't even make things from kits. I'm clumsy and lack patience.

But I came across these today. Aren't they cool?!

This is my favourite.
