Piece of Zach


It seems that I'd made a bag that got lost behind some other bags hanging around the place. So, in addition to that button piece that I mentioned last week, and the bag that still exists in my mind's eye- we also have Josh in pieces.
I never tire of turquoise, and for those of you who understand the passion in chenille; here's another piece of it for your viewing or handling pleasure.
Here's where Josh comes in. He's a nifty guy who I've only met once- at a top secret hand-me-down/Darfur bits and pieces hand-off. His mother Bev handed over some of Josh's clothes to use up on the project- something that josh himself had taken an interest in. First, we put the pants to good use on our own Sam, since he was the perfect size for them. When he shot up and out of them, I stacked them up with my other goodies to get re-birthed into something else. The great thing about cargo pants is that the pockets have already been made for us. They come in a great shape and size and look a lot better here than in the landfill.

(mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Coffee.)



There's a whole bunch of reasons to wish for peace today.
And isn't the great motivator of peace, Love? Isn't it because we love one another that we wish the fighting would go away? We want peace in our minds and bodies so that we can fully engage with the people around us whom we love.

Hi Joyce;

What an honor to wake up and see our own offspring(and more importantely those cargo pockets) being saluted today!!! I don't know who Josh is, but I'm sure that he is as loved and precious as our own Zach. HAHA! Its Monday a.m. Joyce so you are soooooooo off the hook!

Our children and peace...I can't imagine a more perfect combination. Its what I wish for everyday...in our home, our community, the world, but most importantly, in our hearts!

Its beautiful (the idea and the bag!)
