Cold but.......Sunny!!!!!

Well, still no computer so no pics. Just have my iPad and I don't have pics on it yet!! I have a very different (for me ) embroidery to show. I usually do whimsical things. I'm working on two actually. One is a little fairy house. I got the idea from two little boys who were just in Ireland. They visited a lovely woods with little fairy houses all through it......I thought hmmmmmm. That might be a fun series of embroideries to do. The other is what I call a serious one. I love Kate Greenaways illustrations so I am doing a regency era woman sitting holding a hat, using one of her beautiful illustrations. I found this oval frame at an estate sale just right for this sort of piece. Then I am going to add flowers around the edges. So so fun!! Hopefully ,I can show you soon! Thanks to the new comments from new is so fun to have comments from such nice people . I really appreciate every one!!! See you soon ...I hope...and thank you so much!!!!!!

Happy Monday All!!

This is one of my favorite almost finished embroideries.... I always know when they are done but I don't always know what finishes it.   I think a row of nasturtiums on the right of the topiary...This is based on a garden diagram my wonderful mum did years ago!   I may frame it, I may make a pillow of it.  So so fun!

This is another clothes line piece.  I did a little stumpwork with the basket and I puffed out the clothes in the basket and  then I did a real woven basket. 

I've got a piece I am working on that I will show you as soon as I can figure out how to get the picture here.  I am still learning the ins and outs of the importing of pictures.  I think I get it then I go looking and " where is my picture?????" 

I'm trying to figure out how to make the wonderful collage pictures I see on so many sites!!  help me help me I don't know what I am doing!!!!! 

Very very gray day here on the coast of New England.  A day for baking something I think!  Martha Stewart was just making eclairs....yummmmmm I've made them once and they were so good!

Maybe chocolate cupcakes........   or maybe patting very sweet wonderful kitties!!!

A finished embroidery!

  I just LOVE clothes lines!  This is one of quite a few embroideries I've designed with a clothes line theme...  I just start with the clothes line and go from there!  this one is going to be in a frame...  Happy Day all!!

burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..............cold east wind.....warm hearts =^..^=

Just walked down the hill to the salt marsh where we are having a huge high tide!!    Normally this is all marsh grass and no water!!  The little grouping of trees in the distance is called Pine Island.  When I was a little girl there used to be little one room cottages for summer camping.. but they are just a memory now....  it is a wonderful place to live. Pretty wild at times!

Honoring the great people of Japan...

My plan had been to return to posting tomorrow but I have just learned of a bloggers day of silence for the great people of Japan. So I will be taking part in that. I will also be making a donation tomorrow for aid to Japan. It is just gut wrenching to think what suffering is going on. I find it impossible to think of much else. this is the link. I hope others will join and make a donation to an aid service. Back soon.
