With needles, floss, crochet hook, and yarn


I have plenty for my hand to stay busy and I 
find it hard to blog.....even if it is once a month.
It seems to take me forever to finish something quick enough
to show you.

I am not always in a rush to finish.....just to show.....
as most of you feel the same........it's the process of 
creating something that brings the true joy.
I did finish the above rug....using more of my yarn scrap stash.
I am still in the process of cross stitching the large peacock tapestry
that I have posted in earlier posts......
and I am also trying to find ways to bring interest to the vintage 
linens that I sell in my vintage shop.

Aren't these sun dresses adorable?
They are made from vintage dresser linens and fabric scraps.
I am thinking........and only at this moment ......thinking.....
about making models of things that are made from linens.....
to display on sale day at my shop,  in hopes of  encouraging and inspiring others to purchase
my linens to create such pretty things. 
So tell my.........
what are you keeping your hands busy with?
I would love to hear!
