Fused Glass, Freesias and Action for Happiness

18 Aug

I collected my piece of fused glass from The Craft Collective today, the piece that I made a couple of weeks ago in Lisa MacFarlane’s class. You may be able to see what I was aiming for………

My fused glass

Our lovely daughter No 3 brought some beautiful Suffragette coloured Freesias when she visited on Wednesday. They have now opened and smell so sweetly.

Freesias

I am trying to do all these things in Altruistic August, just not on the designated day. Actually, it’s how I try to live my life. When we walked along Cliff Road on Thursday, a sombre looking man was sitting alone on one of the benches resting, his crutches by his side. I simply smiled and said, “This was one of my favourite walks when I was on crutches, flat and safe,” and he beamed back, clearly pleased to have been spoken to with empathy. When we looked back, he was on his way again.

    The fused glass is very pretty and I liked that Altruistic calendar page so much I saved it! Good reminders there.
