MARINEIA



Let me introduce my brasilan friend Marineia Reis.

She is an amazing woman, she runs a children shelter without funding from the government or any charity organisation. She get donations from church, help from the neighbours, or for example -a couple of weeks ago some students of a hospitality business school came and these youngster made a lovely buffet and entertained the children.
Marineira is so good with children, they are such a happy crowd. She has a big and great heart.

 Today there are 13 children but two weeks ago the number was 23. Some are adopted (one couple adopted 4 sisters and 1 brother) or other children go back to family - aunts, grandparents.
But some kids stay it is difficult to find a home for them.
The children are brought by the council, or just dumped in front of the shelter,
 there are crack children, street children, very poor families, or parents have too many kids.

Every time I visit the shelter the first 5 minutes I get showered by kisses, hugs, if I was a tree, they would climb in me. I always enjoy my time with Marineia and the kids.
I bring donations, toys, clothes sometimes money from friends of the expat community.

           Because I love and admire Marineia, I cross stitched this bouquet of anemones for her.

TOWEL


 In the line of Brazilians embroidery I made  a kitchen towel. You can find these towels almost at every market,  and mainly  with an old fashion floral pattern. I made this  modern colourful one for my daughter Myrthe. It  was a pleasure to stitch, because it was easy and didn't took a long time.
