There are a lot of reasons to despair these days, but I am trying to hang on to the good things and give thanks for the countless blessings in my life that I take for granted every day.
This week I give thanks for:
- going to the circus with my husband, brother, sister-and-law and 2 year old nephew
- my new pair of glasses — my first new pair in 7-8 years!
- the first snowfall of the season
- an excellent concert by Kristian Bezuidenhout
And here’s what I’ve bookmarked this week:
Creative Live has a tutorial to make an easy embroidery sampler for Christmas.
The U.S. National Archives shows us that at one time samplers could be used as legal proof of marriage.
Video of the Week
Because we just saw Kristian Bezuidenhout last night, I have to share this video of him performing the Andante from Mozart’s Piano Sonata 16 in C Major. Lovely.
