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

There is a place

that I love to visit once or twice a year. A "museum" of old homes that have been donated by folks and where the museum has set them on the grounds, repaired and decorated them to their certain period of time.
Each home, I love to look at, but I am always drawn back to this particular space. In my last post and on my last comment , one of you dear readers,  Toni, spoke of a wonderful magazine ............"Where Women Create". And yes, Toni, I love that magazine, and it is what keeps pushing me on the path of finding my creative dream. For others who are reading this and do not know what the magazine is about, it features creative women who have found their career in what they create..............and their creative space. I can imagine my creative space to be like this, in the photo above.............. including the wood burning stove................however, the walls would have shelves of floss, patterns, books, and material. I would have an overstuffed chair,perfect for doing my hand work, my coffee pot on the side table and ......................
my black cat, Salem, stretched out on the rug in front of the fire................of course!
How about you? Do you have a creative space or do you have one dreamed up in your mind?
I would love to hear!
p.s..............thank you all for your encourage and sweet comments......................you are also the inspiration that keeps pushing me on! blessings to you!

I am supposed to have a creative space, but at the moment it is a huge mess... I share my sewing room with the office, and I can't think very well in a mess. So right now I just move my projects to another room. (usually the dining room) I need to get in there and clean out all the paper piles and then I will have my creative space back again. :-)

I just love your blog. I have just accidently come across it this afternoon. It instantly sparked my interest when you referred to west Texas and in looking at your old cooking blog you use "Gandys" buttermilk. My husband is from the Angelo area. In fact all his family still live in the area. We are in the process of moving back there. We have bought an old house in Talpa to fix up as our retirement home.
I love your embroidery work. That is the first crafty thing I learned how to do. My Mamaw taught me and that is one of most precious memories. I have many a dresser cloth, pillow case and many a crocheted doily that she made.
I would love to follow your blog but didn't find a spot to do so. Guess I'll just post you in my favs for now.
I love your blog about your farm as well. Love the zinnias. Another favorite of my Mamaw.
Y'all take care, Linda

What a beautiful scene. I can just imagine some pioneer women working here in front of the pot-bellied stove. Such a peaceful place. I like the black cat, too. My creative place is on my front porch when it's not too cold to sit outside. I love to look at the mountains, flowers, and trees with Pepper (my dog) at my feet.
