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.

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

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

  11. 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!

  13. 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.
