What A Little Beads And Ric-Rac Can Do

Besides adorning my shirts, blouses and pants with hand-painted designs, I enjoy dressing up my clothes with hand-sewn beads and an assortment of braiding or ric-rac too.

Here are two of many of my blouses (which I sewed myself) – coincidentally they are both purple in colour.

Embroidered blouseOne is decorated with swirls of ric-rac and applique flowers, interspersed with beads.

Wooden beadsFor the other, I used only wooden beads which I salvaged from another blouse with very sheer fabric, and stitched them on to this purple blouse.

At age 93, I still derive much joy from my handiwork. I thank the good Lord for blessing me with such simple pleasures and good friends to cheer me on.

Amen.

Hello everyone, it has been a whirlwind of activities whizzing us through the last few months, and in Malaysia we are still in the midst of the 15-day observation of the Lunar New Year.  On this note, we take the opportunity to wish one and all a blessed New Year!

With the good Lord watching over us, we are deeply grateful for all the blessings showered on our family and friends in 2013. We continue to pray for peace in the world and for God’s guidance in all we do, through the year ahead.
