Lovely post! I'm longing for some crafting time this weekend. Here's hoping. Julie


Your blues are so beautiful. I have been sitting in the evenings stitching white cloth with shibori designs to be dipped in the blue liquid once the heat departs. Your embroideries always make me smile. I agree about paint vs needle and thread. Last winter I took a couple of online classes to learn to paint. It was instructive as I came to the conclusion that I'd much rather paint with thread and cloth. Have a wonderful weekend!


I thought I invented moving via IKEA bags! Moved both of our sons that way. Love your embroidered work.

So glad I happened upon this. Thank you for your lovely words and beautiful photos.


What a peaceful post, Charlotte. Love these peeks into your day.
