A visit with Jude at Spirit Cloth always lifts my spirits. Don't you love the expressions communicated through the eyes on this one? I wish my imagine was this whimsical, I could entertain myself for ever by telling myself stories!
Another way to use up scraps and a great valentine project over at The Attic Window. Check out Carol's applique tutorial while you're there!
On another subject:
This is my reading and sewing nook downstairs. I can hide my embroidery paraphernalia in the drawers of this old Chinese chest when I want to straighten up.
I've been reading more than usual for the last month or so. As a result of the packing and moving and unpacking and arranging, sewing (other than tiny embroidered pieces) has not been practical. I'm almost caught up with reviews over at A Garden Carried in the Pocket, my book blog.
Of course, the Triad can present a problem with reading and embroidery unless I banish them. They try to turn the pages of my books before I'm ready and find embroidery floss a delightful challenge. So...depending on their behavior (Stinker is always good), Edgar and Lucy often find themselves on the other side of the door.
