The above picture may not look like grand progress, but it was a pretty intense bit of stitching. It was more intense because I was listening to Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The House of the Seven Gables." Sometimes I laughed out loud, and sometimes my heart beat fast and my needle flew faster! Agnes' house has only one gable, but I think she is better off than the inhabitants of that well-gabled house.
You may have noticed that I am not the type who rushes out and frames or otherwise finishes my work. I am sure there is some psychological name for that as well as a financial one! ;) One day, I want Paulette's coffee freebie to grace this space. (it is upstairs with a piece of foam board cut and ready for the stretching)
I wish you could join me for a morning of stitching and coffee!
