Special Days and FNSI

I hope everyone had a lovely and safe Easter weekend.  Ours was very quiet, spent with family and friends, reflecting on the true meaning of Easter.

 I can't believe it's already over though and we're hurtling towards the middle of the year, can you?  Next will be Anzac Day here in Australia and New Zealand, then Mother's Day, and before we know it, it will be Christmas again!  We seem to be living from celebration to celebration throughout the year, and they are starting to blend together!


Did you know that today is Haiku Poetry Day (believe it or not!) ?

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry about beauty captured in short simple stanzas, in the space of 17 syllables, generally 5 in the first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third.  
Haiku Poetry Day is a great opportunity to let your creativity flow, and really begin to appreciate the complexities of life refined down to simplicity.  Why not give it a go?  Seeing Friday night is our monthly virtual sew-in date, I thought I'd try to write a FNSI haiku! 


Friday is the day
Don't forget to sign up here
for our monthly fun

What do you think?  Brought back some memories from primary school that's for sure, and believe it or not, it was quite fun!  Just as our Friday nights always are.  So sign up below and prepare for another fun filled Friday night together!
