From Our Chaos

My daughter, Maggie, made this beautiful piece of embroidered art.

I'm happy we share a love of fiber arts. 
When I create embroidered art, my box of floss has a
chaotic array of tangles, 
but when each strand is threaded through a needle
and applied to the fabric, a work of art emerges.

Art is chaos taking shape, much like life. 
God mends our broken strands, and 
He takes our loose threads and weaves beauty.
From our chaos, He creates a work of art.

Atlantic Puffin

One of my favorite birds is an Atlantic puffin. Puffins live along the northern Atlantic. They bob on the ocean in the coldest of weather and nest in the summer on island rocks along Maine's coast.

Since I've started embroidering again, I tried my hand at making my own puffin. I like how it turned out. 

Are there birds you enjoy seeing?
