This week I took the Bristol quilt to the Joanna house, home of our first quilt of hope, where it has pride of place in their quiet room.
It always amazes me,that something as simple as an embroidered square of cotton can be part of a huge picture of blessings for women (and men) who we may never meet.
A few little things have happened recently that have brought back an old gripe of mine. That old feeling that as a Christian artist, one of the hardest hurdles is finding a sense of belonging in the church.
I am sure many of you are a bit nervous about dyeing your own cotton, so I made a little video to show you how I did it.
I figured, since most of us are spending hours, days and weeks (maybe even months) stuck at home you might be asking yourself what you can do to pass the time.
Our latest quilt has been finished and almost ready to go to it’s home.
This quilt has been made for The Salvation Army’s Human Trafficking unit, which works with various agencies to rescue and support people caught in trafficking and slavery in the UK.
