Last night Juliet hosted her monthly craft night, and the project was "Stuffed Monsters". I do not intend to describe the method but simply want to share the wonderful evening we had indulging our imagination in creating our monster.
Mine was a hairy haggis (see the last picture).
I will continue to report on the craft meetings and let you share in Juliet's latest project.
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed taking part.
"All Art is a gift of the Holy Spirit. When this light shines through the mind of a musician, it manifests itself in beautiful harmonies. Again, shining through the mind of a poet, it is seen in fine poetry and poetic prose. When the Light of the Sun of Truth inspires the mind of a painter, he produces marvellous pictures. These gifts are fulfilling their highest purpose, when showing forth the praise of God." (Compilations, The Importance of the Arts in Promoting the Faith)
A painter asked: "Is art a worthy vocation?" 'Abdu'l-Bahá turning to her impressively, said: "Art is worship."
Abdu'l-Baha, Abdu'l-Baha in London, p. 93)
