It was a good day today… it was an “end” tying day. I had many projects in the house that needed finishing. I found myself floating from one room to the next. Fall is a good time for this. I feel like I am getting ready for winter! I am ready to hunker down for when the first snowflakes fly. My mother always had some sort of project going in the winter months. She did a lot of needlework when she was a young mother.
A couple of weeks ago I went to the fairgrounds for the annual Quilt A Fair. It was so much fun. There were fabric shops from all over who came to sell their goods. For an artist, it was a feast!! Pattern and color and ideas were everywhere! I stopped abruptly when I came to a corner booth displaying needlework. There on the wall was the cutest little picture of a rabbit holding a cookie! I had to have it!! Only…. in order to HAVE it, I had to make it! I could almost hear my mother’s voice saying, “go ahead Leslie! This looks like a fun one”. So, I bought it! It is ready to stitch as soon as I get the thread.
I have other indoor projects for the winter months. I just have to get them ready to go! These are projects I can do “after drawing all day” in the studio. It’s almost like a “story book” way to spend the evening….. with a needle and thread.
