Happy Mother’s Day to all my readers.
Remember you are special and if you haven’t been told that in a long time I’m telling you now that you’re special.
We can learn a lot from our mothers, they have lived longer than us. They have many life stories and experiences that we can learn from.
Happy Mother’s Day!!!
I love colours. They are everywhere. I can’t imagine a world without colour.
Flowers, fabrics, cars and so much more.
Though there are so many colours, not every living organism can see the colours. Colour blind persons are limited to how their eyes perceive colour. Bees and other insects can’t see colour like we do.
My favourite colour is blue. Why blue? Here is why… I find it a calming colour. It reminds me of the ocean, sky and pools.
Blue is associated with depth and stability. It is a colour that symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue has medical benefits for the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity. Avoid using blue when cooking or on food displays as it suppresses appetite.
Another colour I like is purple
Here is why:
The colour purple makes me feel creative with a hint of mystery. I find that it mixes well with blue as it carries my cool, calm and relaxed theme.
Purple has been associated with royalty as it symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, ambition, wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.
Purple can evoke feelings of romance, gloom and sad feelings. For some people it can cause them to become frustrated.
It is not a colour for everyone, but for me it is a perfect colour.

Roses are so lovely to look at. Their aromatic fragrance is a delight to our noses. But they also have many benefits for our health.
The benefits of rose tea:

Washing your face with rose tea helps to keep your skin soft, tightened and hydrated. Thus making it great for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps to clear blemishes and dark circles. Rose tea is wonderful for premature ageing as the antioxidants delay the free radicals from damaging our skin.

Rose tea is great for women who suffer from heavy periods with intense pain. They can take the tea to help with the pain and reduce the blood flow. You make this tea with 2 cups of warm water and black pepper powder and honey. It is also a good home remedy for infertility and irregular periods.
Regular drinking of rose tea can boost the immune system due to the vitamin C content it contains. And it is great to have a cup of the rose tea when you have a sore throat or cold.

Rose tea helps the intestines to expel waste from the gut and it nourishes the gastric mucosa making it suitable to encourage good bacteria growth.

Roses are a natural stress reliever. It balances the stress and emotional hormones.
These roses are so lovely! The colours are amazing. Who would’ve thought that flowers can have such sharp thorns and yet look so delicate and beautiful?
These flowers were made like this by God for a reason. Why they have the sharp and painful with the bright happy colours, only God will know.
We are blessed to have such beauty to enjoy and treasure. Life is hard and painful at times, but there is always something positive amongst it all.
I tried something I’ve never done before, mozaic! I really enjoyed sticking down all the tile pieces, that was the best part of the whole craft. And the tiles are in my favorite and second favourite colors. 😊

This year for my temperature blanket, I am doing weekly blocks. This way it is easier to carry with me and I like making blocks. Also as there are 52 weeks in the year which won’t work for a blanket, I am going to add another 2 blocks for Easter and Christmas. That will be a perfect number to make a nice sized blanket.
I have 5 weeks done in the picture, a bit behind in weeks, and I am going to add a white boarder around each one. And I am going to use the join-as-you-go method.
I will post a picture of a completed block as soon as I have done one.
