I love embroidery: the techniques, the colors, the designs! Every once in a while, I design something myself. Most of all, I associate embroidery with an incredible and fun group of women who meet monthly. Since February, I have Zoomed with them twice and seen one woman face to face (a treasure of a "distanced" afternoon). I have several unfinished projects, and yet I find I do not stitch as much as when we met in person. But recently, I finished a project – simply stitching final notes to an "Amazing Grace" piece. A friend had inherited it from a friend who died … and my friend wanted to give the finished piece to the surviving daughter. A bit more complicated than I thought, I kept at it, lost sleep and finished it in a day. Paying my hobby forward, I guess. The last verse caught my attention in a different way, being in the midst of a pandemic. "When we've been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun. We've no less days to sing God's praise, than when we first begun." Whether you meet in person, virtually, or enjoy a hobby alone, use it to praise God!
