Arch and head scarve storage

Good morning from a gray and rainy South of France. Hope you are all well!
I am still doing well and gaining strength every day. I have a fitness plan going on at the moment and am determined to get back into shape. I have just thirteen radio therapy sessions to go and will be finished before Christmas!

I am sharing an arch I made recently, just felt like working with a different shape and have heard that the weekly Gothic Arch challenges will be returning in 2012.

Now I am going to share a little idea I got recently with a basket I received with some lovely soup bowls in it last September for my birthday. It suddenly dawned on me that it would be ideal to store my head scarves in and it is so handy!

And this little blessing I have to share with you. The lady who drives me to the clinique everyday for the radio therapy bought this for me. It clips onto my head scarve and adds a little color and interest. So sweet of her.

I want to finish with a little encouragement about Biblical HOPE and how important it is. I read it the other day and it so blessed me. We need love because without it the Bible says we have nothing, we need faith because the Bible says that it pleases God but what about hope?
This is what I read:
Hope is necessary if we are to maintain both faith and love. Unless we have hope, our faith will "leak out" and our love will fail. Hope is not optional; it is essential to the fullness of the Christian life. Where there is hope, there's life and where there is no hope there is no life.Hebrews 10:23 - Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

Wishing you all a week full of hope!
