Sharing a common thread with those who love the art of hand embroidery

The golden glow of the late afternoon

enters the house and fills it with a calm and comfort.

Throughout the day.......I am aware of the weather going on outside.....
whether it be cold wind blowing and snow falling,
rain dripping,
or hot and muggy , with the sun baking 
the parched earth.........
no matter what the conditions........the end of the day wraps it's peacefulness
around the house and says.........
"your home" 


While going through my never ending stash......I came upon this printed piece
waiting to be stitched........

and it's one phrase summed up all that I feel when I am ready to settle down in the late
afternoon to stitch.

It's not finished yet........I still have a few flowers and leaves to 
embroider

but the words are done............
Bless.........what a wonderful word.........
it's how I feel.........blessed
Here's wishing you the same feeling!
