And the rain rain rain came down down down. Not in torrents, but persistently as it does here on the coast. This afternoon Miss S is sleeping, Hubby is performing surgery on the wood stove and I'm curled up with some hand stitching -- at least I will be in a minute, when this post is done and the kettle has boiled for tea.
First, I thought I'd share a few of my many works in progress.
In the sewing room I'm working, slowly but surely, on a new set of table linens for the Dapple shop. I absolutely love this combination of fabrics. Grey and pastel. Mountains and waves.
Miss S sometimes sits on my lap while I do this type of sewing, helping by pulling the pins out when I tell her it's time and meticulously storing them away in the pin cushion.
But in the evenings I've been parked in the living room with my hand work. These leaves are a bit of scrap bag fun. I wanted to doodle stitch -- no project in mind. If you look closely, you'll note that my embroidery skills needed dusting off. I might chalk this piece up to practice and return it to the scrap bag. It was fun.
So much fun, in fact, that I've jumped into another little project. Felt appliques and a little embroidery. It's quick and simple. Cozy work. I have a vague plan of making a enough of these for a bunting-style garland.
And that is what I'm planning to curl up with right now. Happy weekend to you.
