Welcome to my corner of the Blogosphere! Here is where I share my stitching and homeschool. If you want a peek at my experiences teaching Sunday School and our family's liturgical celebrations, click the image to visit my newest blog The Swallow's Nest
How was that for a snappy title? Really, it should have been titled "This Minute," because that is as far ahead as I can think. If I thought any further ahead, I would be confronted with the facts that today at 5 I have a long-overdue eye exam, at 6 the girls need to be at my cousin's wedding rehearsal, at 7 we are invited to the rehearsal dinner, tomorrow is the wedding, and on Sunday my in-laws are coming to stay for several days. Other facts: my house is a mess, my yard is scary, Nutmeg has not finished her math, and Buttercup has been in a MOOD ever since she woke up, and right now they are fighting over which one gets to use the bathroom first, because of course they want to use the same one. So, rather than deal with these daunting realities, I have choosen to dust off my camera and blog.
I have finally finished something - CHS Be My Love! I also started another mermaid design my CHS. I am again fascinated by the color combination!
None of my friends in-real-life read my blog, so I am going to post a piece I am stitching for a friend. She and her family are taking Colonial America trip. Yesterday, I saw my "Williamsburg Lady," and I thought it would be perfect! I do not know if it is her style, or if she will even want it. So I plan on giving it to her for Christmas - like next week. If she does not want it, she will be getting another cookbook for Christmas! I have shifted and added and otherwise adjusted the design. In place of the alphabet, I have stitched "Williamsburg" and "Jamestown" across the top. I plan on stitching "Yorktown" down the right-hand side. I changed the colors to DMC, because stitching with silk stresses me. I think I may add a dog/cat/rabbit on the right side of the lady, and perhaps a little something under the bird.
Hmmmm....I always get my best stitching/cooking/crafting ideas when some unrelated deadline is approaching!
