A Sweet Gift from the Lovely Hazel
As I type, the verse on this Winter flatfold could not be more true... January has brought us such a lovely dusting of Winter snow outside, and oh how I love the beauty and stillness of an early morning snowfall. I finally finished this design which I stitched in 2007 into a flatfold to display on my hutch for Christmas and beyond.
I should say ... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! December and the first part of January has been filled to the brim for me: I left my job at the foster care agency, and began a new job as an outpatient therapist; my sister-in-law came to visit for 10 days at Christmas, and the next day we left for Chicago to spend a week with my family; oh, AND, in what became a crazy 2 week project, I re-arranged all our furniture, which entailed selling/freecycling 7 pieces, making a big trip to Ikea with the requisite assembly required, making 4 new curtains and 5 new pillows, and purchasing a beautiful new iMac computer for our Christmas gift --our old computer was on its very last leg. When I type all that I start to feel exhausted! But that is why I have taken a break from blogging for a few weeks.
Somewhere in there I received this beauty of a pinkeep from sweet Hazel, and I have been admiring it ever since. Thank you, dear Hazel! Speaking of Hazel, I hope to start my Beatrix Potter SAL today ~ can't wait to dive into this fun project.
I have tons of stitching to show you --will try to get it posted incrementally over the next few days... in the meantime, Happy Stitching!
