between the baking of cookies, shopping & decorating ~
writing christmas cards and shipping...
I rely on my needlework to keep me sane!
(& I'm pretty sure i'm in thee best of company)
Have you all had the pleasure of perusing this new magazine?
it hails form the UK, and I found mine at our Barnes & Noble Booksellers yesterday...
it is simply charming.
it is fresh, clean & has a kind of quiet-refinement that my overworked brain craves this time of year...if you get a chance, check it out...it makes me happy!
of course, so does this:
my SEWING basket!
oh I have it all stocked-up alrighty...
pins, needles...pencils, punches,,,
scissors, threaders & even my little AMAZING-ly bright mini OTT Light
I keep these things right where I need them...next to my comfy stitching/reading chair...
for those quiet moments (that aren't too abundant as-of-late), but cherished nonetheless :)
I'm working on charting the Feeding the Reindeer & Merry Yule patterns,
along with some new designs for (yikes!) Valentines Day & Easter
(say it isn't' so!)
BUT, please bear with me as I master yet another obstacle:
a brand new software program for designing my crass stitch patterns on this MAC!
Hoping you all have a creative day my Friends!
some have emailed asking where I purchased my sewing basket ~Walmart is the answer!
