Crafting Hands

This summer I have seen a few hands creating something beautiful for us to look at and admire. I have enjoyed watching the artist from China paint in ink drawings:

And I have seen my own hands create a bedspread for my bed:

Hands can create beautiful things and I enjoy watching them at work.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

We use our hands daily to do so much: to write, cook, brush our teeth, eat …. The list is endless. One of my children’s favourite ways in which to use their hands is to build with Lego.
