Welcome! While I had hoped to publish posts once a week since my last post, it has been over four weeks since then. I have been easily distracted by happy and sad events around me. Creative projects stoke my happiness and combat my sadness.
Alicia Paulson's book, Stitched in Time and Helen Philipps' book Quick and Clever Cross Stitch to prime myself as I plan to do a stitching piece similar to my mom's I showed you several posts back. My mom used linen to stitch on, but I have decided to use cotton Aida cloth.
Joy, who lives in Lincolnshire, England, an area from which some of my ancestors immigrated in the1600's. She sent a wonderful letter, and shared some lovely yarn left from a winter cardigan she just knit, some beautiful buttons, and knowing I like sheep, too, she sent me a learned one to help me count stitches! Thanks so much, Joy, for your kindness.
What are you crafting in the world around you in this season?
