She works with her hands in delight.....









Proverbs 31:13
She works with her hands in delight.


So I think this is going to be my new life motto...(I don't actually have one but I like this one
a lot.) So today I volunteered to do the woman's craft for VBS at our church. (it isn't until July) I have a bit of time. I can't even begin to share with you how excited I am to do this. You see the woman meet for a Bible Study and then a craft for the entire week of VBS. It has always been a wonderful fellowship and I am much to excited for my own good. You see I immediately came home and thought about what I wanted to teach..(me teaching heehee, lil ol' me, from a family of teachers...) I wanted it to be something fun, easy enough to do while you are talking to other people and yet something that was pretty and unique. So I thought I had seen somewhere about covering wooden beads with fabric.... I sat and went thru about 100 blogs that I read. Couldn't find it any where so I just searched it and found a tutorial from froo*gal...
So I went out and purchased some wooden beads and got to work. Mind you it took me about 2 hours b/c of the traffic to get to a store and back It usually takes about 30 min tops. The traffic was so bad due to the storms and flooding we have had the past few days.... cest la vie.

So I am very happy with the outcome. I have to work on it a bit more. The one that I made, Sara asked if she could have it. I made it a bit short (chocker length) I would make it longer for myself. I am also going to try to find some bigger beads. I think a bracelet would be just darling to match.
Anyway, I think that this will be a wonderful time of craft therapy this summer at VBS. What do you think?

GREAT JOB!!! And thanks for the "shout out". You have plenty of time to work out the kinks, it gets easier with each one you make.

I can offer a couple of tips...The bigger 1" beads are easier to use, I buy mine at Joann fabrics. Also even though I have used many different fabrics including vintage Kimono silks (difficult!) the easiest fabric to work with by far is the Liberty of London because it is a very thin fine woven cotton...it practically pops right into those holes...and the good news is...if you are having trouble finding it I am going to be selling it on my new website (coming soon) and in the mean time, in my Etsy shop.

I love your motto...and your daughter is adorable.

I've always loved that verse! It really is a delight to work with our hands! And your beads turned out so beautifully!! I think I may have to try that. :)
