« strands of spring | Main | new sampler »



Such sweet little lambs. I love the little one perched on top of his/her mother looking very content. Your daughter looks so much like you - I wondered if it was an earlier photo of you - but then I saw the laptop!

Happy Spring, Charlotte.

Those baby lambs are the cutest!!

We call them the Lamb Races. It is so entertaining to watch them and all that vigor they have. Hope you have a great spring.

I am always left inspired Charlotte

Teapot in one hand and embroidery in the other....perfection! Just have to lengthen the hair a bit and it's a self-portrait! Can't wait, Charlotte, it's lovely.

The lambs are delightful and a happy sight and, the netting bag is genius!

Happy Spring!


Oh those lambs! You've made my day...thanks for sharing!

Oh what sweet little lambs! What a fun day that must have been. Can't wait to see the rest of that lovely sampler. Great idea for the thread! Happy day.

okay...LOVE the thread holder - a LOT!!! You are a genius, my friend.
I also think the new little "stitching girl" on your latest sampler is lovely.
Ranunculas are my ABSOLUTE faVORITE and I'm so happy that Trader Joe's always has a big selection around this time of year...simple joys.....

You are on my mind a soon?

Jone Hallmark

....OH, and those LAMBIES!!!!
Aren't they the very best kind of joy?!
I visited some babies a couple of weeks ago in Albuquerque at los poblanos.... sigh.....


What an uplifting post for a dreary week filled with bad, sad news. Thank you Charlotte for sharing joy found in small pleasures.

This is so cool, that's a picture of my version of your embroidery pattern in Feeling Stitchy. It's such a great pattern, I'm really loving making it. The lambs are sweet. We have lambs at our farm too! Thanks!
