Still Stitching


Time - to stitch, to dream, to breathe. In the midst of my busy life I remind myself to pay attention to the moments. My life is topsy turvy these days - piles of boxes pile up in every room, the fridge and pantry look more and more empty, the detritus of life lies in piles to recycle, to discard, or to donate.


A bit of lavender came to mind, delicate buds on green stems. I haven't stitched now for a couple of days, but I'm making a date with myself tonight to settle in on the couch with my needle and thread.

What a lovely idea, to create peace through creativity. It's going to be a special record of this time, in a way.

I really like all your stitching - you have talent. Enjoy your night on the couch and I'm looking forward to what you stitch up next!

How beautiful! It reminds me of the pieces from another era that I have locked away in my cedar chest.

Oh my, your stitching just takes my breath away. Lovely.

PS...we live in the same part of the world. I am in the Seattle, WA area. Small world, stiching linked us together :)

Your sampler is beautiful! I love all those florals-- and the clock is wonderful. I love the meaning behind it.
Hugs,

Seeing your stitch work makes me want to get out my needle + fabric, but I must finish the kitchen first. xx

This sticking looks SO charming. What are you making?

Vee said...

I must be hungry...I saw your little clock as a blueberry pie. Either way, it's cute. Ahh yes, the house getting all packed up gets to be quite the challenge. It is kind of cool to have the opportunity to pack and decide what will go and what will no longer be needed. Continued good wishes!

Very pretty, Lorrie! The flowers almost look real!

Your stitching looks very pretty indeed. And it sure is important to take time in ones busy life to "smell the roses"... I certainly am looking forward to smelling the lovely scent of lavender (thanks for the reminder) and roses soon. I do hope that spring would hurry up a bit more... still more snow than bare ground in my corner of the world.

Beautiful work Lorrie. Take time for yourself throughout the day. I keep telling myself that...
I hope the move prep is going well.

big hugs,
Barb

Your stitching is just perfection. I love the color palette.

Thank you so much for your good wishes. I am on the mend and will be back to my whirlwind self very soon.
