"Hands are the exit of the spirit"

Jane, blogging at World Embroideries gifted me
with this lovely Temari

A couple of days ago,
she had a photo of a new blue Temari
on her post Another Swirl Temari

Near the end of her post, she shared a link
to a video she watched and shared something said from that video,
she posted:

"Hands are the exit of the spirit."
Do you agree with that?
I don't know if I do or not... but it is very thought provoking.

Jane, ever since I read your post, I haven't been able to let go of the quote ...
what do YOU think?

and, I still cherish my temari
I find so much joy in your posts + am gobsmacked
by the variety of temari you have created

Carol, blogging at
i Stitch
celebrated her 200 followers
by a giveaway .... and I was one of 3
chosen!!! woot ; )

I was delighted to choose Sew A Brown Bunny
one of
Karen's i Stitch Designs

Thx Karen!!

At Tuesday nights NANI Chapter Meeting, there was a table of
patterns to choose from - GF Kay
saw this charming La D Da design,
White Cat
c. Lori Markovic 2001
and handed it to me.

Always nice with NANI members share
their stash overflows -- don't we all know
the feeling to discover we have two copies
of the same design????

(I need to quickly stitch and pass along
this pattern to GFs Sue + Mel)

And speaking of stitching,
not much of that going on -
this left hand isn't cooperating.
Isn't quite healed enough for lengthy
stitching time.

I did get a few stitches into
this Dutch Treat tabletopper.
If I can get the q-snap balanced on the table edge
and not grasp with left hand, I can do ok.

I'll just wait another few days and try again.

Meanwhile, if you enjoy tabletoppers, don't miss
Myrna's post It's Daffodil Time!,
what a beautiful tabletopper FINISH!!!

Did you get your premium booklets
in the mail today?

A sure sign of Spring
when the Fair booklets arrive!!
