The hand has been a symbol through the ages and in many cultures. Some hand 'expressions':
Hand In - Hands Down - Upper Hand - Other Hand - Out of Hand - Hand it to Someone - Lend a Hand - Helping Hand - Bite the Hand that Feeds - Free Hand - Hand Over - Hand over Hand - Hand Up - Hand Out - Hand in Glove - To take a Hand - Throw up your Hands - Wash your Hands of it - One Hand Washes Another
The last few days have been all about 'Hands' for me. Coping with storms (a level 3 tornado on Tuesday had me wringing my hands), a rogue 'cable guy' cutting my lines and then trying to get assistance. Thank you neighbor for lending a hand in reporting someone on our vast property. Needing a hand to get around - no vehicle and STILL nervous about driving myself when loaned a vehicle. A grandchild needing special hands to help with an illness. Caring hands for daughter and SIL to cope with sick child. A helping hand from a cyber friend on dealing with an elderly parent. Extending my own hand in assisting someone in need. And waiting to see what the government is going to leave me in hand should I lose my only income.

I had some helping hands with cleaning my work/living space as I had everything torn apart to 'analyse' my cable problems. See what happens when I clear a spot! And that is a new Square Up tutorial I am working on - a sharing hand.
This was my distraction from all those HAND expressions. I finished my Simple Treasures quilt - Charming Girl's Club last project. Moda's 'Strawberry Fields' charm packs that were given to me by a cyber friend for my birthday, scrap muslin, and Connecting Threads' strawberry print (stars) and Bernatex 'Meadow' print for the back. AND buttons!
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. **Audrey Hepburn
