Stitches and More...


Our bedroom so far, has not one ounce of decoration in it... even the blanket on the bed isn't even big enough to cover it ( I will eventually make a quilt...) So I thought I'd practice embroidery and make pillows at the same time. I will probably crop it and do a border around the center part in a darker color... I'm questioning whether yellow gingham was the right choice, but I've only got what I've got... We'll see...I'm hoping this won't be one of those projects that sits. and sits. and sits... I'd also kind of like to embroider this motif all along the hem of a full white linen skirt...hmmmm


Oh! in other news.... that shoe shop that I love in the mall is having a sale to get rid of summer shoes... so i went to, um, look. I rode my bike to the mall and somehow made it back with 2 pairs of shoes in my basket...

Two pairs, for $25.


Yes, twenty five dollars... down from $60 each. it would be been wrong not to get them. They needed a home.
