A little collection of new goodies I have been working on. I am especially fond of the shams. Everything has lots of hand stitching on it and, as always, everything is naturally hand dyed. I am trying to move away from the straight blue/gray...which I have been obsessed with but now am a little weary of. I am not sure if I will put any of these in the shop, or just amass a large pile in the hopes that I will get into one of the craft shows I have applied to. Gulp! Juried. Scary.
We are off to England in a couple of weeks to spend some time with the family. My sister is having her first baby. So I will get to spend three weeks holding my little niece or nephew. Yeah!! I can't wait! I am giddy. My daughter is excited about the plane flight - gack - and my son and husband are excited about the pubs and the food. Mum lives in a tiny - and I mean tiny, tiny, tiny - town in Gloucestershire and my sis lives just outside Oxford in another tiny town called Woodstock. Both come with their own older-than-anything-we-have-in-this-country houses and pubs. My sister's home looks like it belongs in the Shire from The Hobbit. Really. I kid you not. Complete with tiny front door that you would absolutely miss if you did not know it was there. I am hoping to visit some fabric shops. Mum brought over some gorgeous French linen last time she visited. So hopefully I can sneak out of the house for a while and pick up some lovely fabrics to bring home. So...that leaves me two weeks to bust out as much stuff as I can.
Until next time...be well. Enjoy the sun if you have it. Or the rain. Or your warm home. Or... xoxo
