Two New Prayer Flags
Explore has an eco dyed scrap that I embroidered with running stitches in the fall, then attached to the flag. I then added chain stitches over the other stitches. Bad photo.
I've finally reviewed Heading Out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick over at A Garden Carried in the Pocket. Geez, I love his language; although I could hope for a happier story, it is so beautifully written.
Continuing to read my books of essays, a little at a time. A Dyer's Hand by Auden is a re-read, A Common Reader by Virginia Woolf is new to me, as is A Visit to Vanity Fair by Alan Jacobs. No hurry to any of these, an essay here, an essay there. None of the compulsion of my mysteries --which I've been trying to wean myself from temporarily.
Oh, and I won a give-away which I will share with you when it arrives! I'm very excited about this because I love winning anything and this one will fit so well into my various crafty projects.
Good mail: Yesterday my sign from Goldiloo's Etsy Shop arrived! Love it. Can't wait to put it up! I might have to order another one of her signs--she has a-plenty.
