That 'having something to look forward to' in this life is a very important gift we share.
Our stitching world is like our secret weapon against the hurdles life puts in our path, I think.
And in my stitching world this week, my little autumn hanging is finished and hanging in the hallway.
It's hard to get a shot around here without a dog's front or back in the frame. Rex is still my constant companion. If I move, he moves with me.
Here I was working on the border piece. It is all set up and doesn't it give the look of efficiency like this person knows what she is doing.
The best part about making this hanging was learning to use another part of the sewing machine-the walking foot. It proved to be a wonderful little tool once I'd figured out how to attach it ( with Hubby's help). I hope to use it often and soon.
I also used these little clips Daughter had given me. They were extremely useful for holding the edges without the bother of pins. I highly recommend them.
Meanwhile my Strawberry Fields is steadily advancing. I am so pleased that my 2.75 reading glasses and my OttLite are working in my favour. All the advance whining was really for nothing it seems.
Below, the view from my kitchen window one day two weeks ago. Of course the snow has completely disappeared. It was 20 degrees C today and raining tonight. But it's out there.
Hope all is calm and contented in your stitchy world this weekend.
