I was thinking for a while what the color of kindness might be... I received many suggestions from you, thank you kindly. Then I had a moment of enlightenment - who was the kindest person I have ever known? My paternal Grandmother of course! She was beautiful, kind and loving, my thoughts started drifting towards memories...
I took forty skeins of floss and tossed them to the pot. Then I added some tea bags, some herbs, a few drops of food coloring and some vanilla. I boiled the mixture for a few minutes
and voilà! I fund the color of kindness:
I loved the look of wet floss, after I dried it it became much lighter but it looks beautiful in my project.
I frogged all black floss and started all over again. This is my progress so far, a loong way to go...
I decided to make a few changes since my project I'm dedicating to my Grandma.
There are two letters: D and O, I will replace those with Grandma's initials M and Z (for Michalina Zamana). I will also change the dates. Under M will be her year of birth (1891) and under Z 1990 (year of her passing). On the bottom in the middle I will stitch my name and the year of finishing this project.
The second week of Kindness Challenge was about observing kindness. To tell you the truth I was impressed discovering how much kindness is all around us. I'm not watching much TV lately and since I'm not bombarded by all the horrible things happening around the world I'm noticing more smiles, kind words and little acts of kindness, like letting someone in into the traffic or stopping for a jaywalker, or holding the door for someone. Life is good around me.
So long my friends,
