let me make you a blanket of hope
the color of sunflowers in a summer field
as warm as sunshine, as soft as grass
every stitch labored with gentle hands
to hug you on a cold winter day
to lift you up, envelop you in love
keep it close to your heart
to carry you forth into your dreams
awakening to a better tomorrow
My dear friends, I hope you're enjoying the last few weeks of summer. On a weekend drive, I came across this beautiful field of sunflowers. Of course, I had to stop and take pictures! The sunflowers were so tall they looked like they could touch the sky.
I've been busy making blankets for charity for orphaned children. Here is a close-up picture of my crochet work in progress. The sunflower field inspired the colors ~ yellow and orange as petals and sunshine, green as grass, blue as the sky ~ I hope it will bring them comfort and warmth. My poem was inspired by it all.

Have a wonderful weekend! xx
