Today I : :

~ started a new applique project...
hangers for appliques
~ realized that this is the very first time I have stitched with black thread -- I love it!
~ am hoping to make three more by this weekend...
old applique
~ am admiring the very old wooden clothes pins spilled out onto my desk...
very old clothes pins
~ am loving the combination of old wood, new thread, and wool felt...
~ am delighted with my friends reaction to her new pin cushion...
another pin cushion
~ am watching my little one find lots of things she likes in our newest sewing book...
reading in window light
~ am very happy that after a rather dark morning, as I finish writing this -- the sun is finally shining!

Wishing you all a lovely day and to not forget about my Giveaway!  ~ Maureen
