It's been a busy week here at the homestead~boys home from school, rainy weather, birthdays coming up. I decided to stay home and get some organizing done...managed to clean out my closet and recycle shoes and clothing I no longer needed and that felt good. Not quite brave enough to tackle the Art Room yet...so many things that I "might" need some day. But I had fun finishing up these hooked pins for Charlotte Lyons and got the little sheep no. 2 done and ready to be framed. Then after looking at a book on Japanese embroidery from Syd I got inspired to do some cuffs and that led to finishing up some fiber bracelets that needed embellishing.
So the rainy weather has been a good time for staying inside, sewing, building a fire and doing a little cooking for the boys. I try and make something yummy and creative, like enchiladas or lasagna about every other night, and then there are left overs in between and Dennis likes to cook too, so that's always nice. We are supposed to have rain all week here, which is rare, but it will give me a chance to do more stitching and maybe clean out that Art room!
Our rug hooking group is donating as a group to the Red Cross for Haiti and so is our plumbing store. And along with everyone I am sending prayers to those in Haiti and wish I could do more.
