Phew. I'm not very used to this sort of rushing about (kids are an entirely different kind of rushing about), so all of this makes me a little nervous. When you're done looking - if you're looking - come on back to settle in for a relaxed little chat, will you? I'd love that.
In the shop today:
Cards & Wrap - a set of four photo greeting cards with a 'needle work' theme, all together in a linen wrap, embroidered with bits of spring and lined with vintage cotton. While I'm not generally a fan of making lots of the same thing, these seem to be an exception - what with all the combinations of embroidery, bias binding (had to make my own - it's so addictive), and crispy vintage cotton prints. I made a big batch of these, so I hope that some of you that missed out on the holiday version will be able to find one today.
Linen Totes - because no shop update of mine is complete without at least a few of my favorite size bags.
Take-Along Spring Quilt - Oh, I do love making these. Linen, with embroidery, vintage doilies and patchwork on the back. (Though I do wish quilts were easier to photograph. Hmn.)
Ah....a little Early Spring shop update. I always have fun putting these updates together, but this time I especially loved dreaming about the spring season in which they'll likely be used. Spring - full of color, light, and picnics, beach trips and leisurely walks in the sun. That's what was on my mind as I put this collection of things together. The children have been preparing for tomorrow's first day of spring all week...and I guess, in my own way, this little shop update is one way that I do the same.
Thank you, friends, for looking ... and for your interest in and support of what I do!
