One of my favourite hobbies is embroidering, specifically the so called ‘punto antico‘ and the Hardanger technique.
The magic of this art is that you actually see your works growing little by little till you can see the end of them. Maybe after some months or even years. It depends on how much time you have. It is always stunning! It gives me such a pleasure and I feel really confident and happy with my results.
Here below you can see the growing of one of my Hardanger kitchen table runners. Next summer I am going to work on my bathroom curtains. I am already excited about it!
What is love? Today I have read this letter again, and I believe it is the most complete description of Love.
From St.Paul’s Hymn to love
Love is patient and kind,
Love is not jealous and boastful,
It is not arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way;
It is not irritable or resentful;
It does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
Love bears all things,
Believes all things,
Hopes all things,
Endures all things.
Love never ends;
