I have to show you a lovely surprise I received in the mail, all the way from sunny Spain and my lovely friend Agueda -
The sweetest little doll, dressed in a traditional costume of her area. Isn't she so sweet??? The detail blows me away. I just love her so much!!! Thank you Agueda!! She sits by me while I'm stitching to keep me company.
It feels good to be stitching again, I've been too busy. I drew up a new pattern, one that is very dear to my heart. I was going to do needleturn, but decided that since it will be hung on the wall I'd do fusible. I prefer wall quilts to be a little stiffer than bed quilts. If I ever make it larger, for a bed, I'll do the needleturn.
With all the cold and snow, I'm dreaming of a garden.
My oldest chick has bought himself a house, and will be moving out soon to his new nest. He'll only be the second owner of this home! I was going to take over his room for a winter sewing room, but decided against it - it's too hot upstairs! It's 20 degrees warmer up there, almost too warm to sleep. We really need to fix that!
And now I really do need more coffee, so I'll leave you with the hope for many blessings in the new year, may God richly bless you all, my friends...
