"It's quite possible to leave your home for a walk in the early morning air
and return a different person- beguiled, enchanted."
- Mary Chase

Since my last update, I embroidered a red center using a new-to-me stitch and a bunch of swirlies radiating outward. Three swirlies to go, and then I'll re-evaluate and decide what's next! You can see my first project at Threaded Doodles.
I admire those that can take control of a sewing machine, guide soft cotton fabric through metallic nozzles and flaps as silky knot-and-break-proof-thread streams smoothly along the assorted paraphenalia that comprises the monster machine. But back to the world of needles and floss, cotton and color. If you sew, check out Hanna's How to Sew Stripe Paper from Create + Live Happy. I guess it would be crazy to try that freehand, but I've been experimenting with sewing on paper and it's a new "twist" on fun.
