Slow, meditative work...
The other morning I saw someone scrubbing all the moss off their garden wall. I suppose some prefer a tidy look. I like to see the way nature creeps and seeps through all our well manicured, neat, clean surfaces. It comforts me. I've often thought it would be great to have a meadow, turf roof. For now I'll do with a moss covered one.
Emmy bought me this beautiful print from The Hermitage for Christmas. The amazing story behind the print can be found here. This week I found the perfect frame for it.
I've been practicing Satin stitch with Matilda. She has embroidered before but now we are starting to learn and perfect the stitches.
Florence and her zen make me want to be a cat. She has this whole living art installation thing going on. She helps me remember that doing nothing in particular can be the best thing to do.
Every Friday I'll be pausing to notice something from the week that has nourished my soul.
A special, sacred-everyday moment captured on camera, or perhaps a snippet from a book, a recipe still warm from the kitchen or something whimsical that simply made me smile.
Here are a few simple things that have fed my soul this week.
What has inspired/fed/nourished your soul this week friends?
