Cross Purposes

What was I baking last week?


I was baking some crosses, made from the sand clay. I found the instructions for this last year when researching children’s activities in the Bahamas. I made some green and some pink ones


After they had dried, I painted them with a 50/50 solution of PVA and water, and left them to dry on a bin bag on the kitchen table.


Why all this cruciferous crafting? Well I am about to start trekking all over the place to take part in Preparation Days for next year’s Women’s World Day of Prayer – the service has been planned by women of The Bahamas. I want to give a personal gift to every woman who attends the days, to encourage them to pray, between now and March, for those who live in those beautiful islands. A small sand-cross will be a special reminder for them.

And please think of me as I travel to Suffolk, Leicester, Somerset, Norfolk, Kent, London … [so grateful for my reliable little car!]
