Unfinished business

 This piece was started in Jude's online workshop last year. I am finally getting around to doing some stitching on it. Still a ways to go and I have a pile of other pieces that I wove and need to play with too.

 And because I seem to have about 10 projects going at once, I started this spotted owl the other night.

 A couple of primitive dolls in the beginning stages for another project that is due at the end of the month.

 On my daily walk I gathered these elderflowers to make some elderflower fritters! Inspired by fellow blogger Yael Eshkar from last Spring I went to "elderberries.com" and found some recipes and went for it. They were pretty good, especially with the fresh local strawberries from Lane Farms and a little powdered sugar!


I pulled this hooked flower piece out of my hooking basket where it has been sitting for over a year and it will now become a pillow for the living room. Feels good to finish up some of my unfinished work! And there is lots more where these came from!
