One of the downsides of what I do is that my hands look pretty rough – tiny cuts from handling glass, skin dry from grouting. Today I was showing Isabella how to do finger knitting and it just struck me how different my fingers looked in comparison to her tender little ones. I’m not big on nail varnish on my hands (toes are another matter!) as it only lasts 5 minutes but I do wish my hands were a little more ladylike. I guess the state of your hands reflects your personality. My mum’s hands are the same and I have inherited those aspects of her personality like not being able to sit still for long and her creative spirit that could take something and just make with it. She once made a kite with us – from a plastic bag and dry spaghetti! Well, these ole hands have been busy this week making stuff…two more mosaics, two mirrors and more mosaic stones. I will photograph them tomorrow and post pics. In the meantime, here’s a picture of my hands holding Isabella’s one week old feet – can you believe this little one will soon be four?
