Last Friday, storms came in the night, wreaking havoc from one end of the Commonwealth to the other. Blissfully the worst for the Wishes family was a loss of power for 24 hours straight, and then a second loss for a night.
I didn’t enjoy the near 100 degree temperature sans air conditioning. I flung open the windows to try to capture what little breeze I could. I needed quiet, still activities to calm the heat swirling all around me.
Out to the studio I went to retrieve my embroidery supplies.
A sweet little craft project that didn’t require electricity or for me to exert much energy. Perhaps best, I got to use some of my endless stash.
I used old and new material, handkerchiefs that belong to my father-in-law and my embroidery thread.
A few beads for pretty.
Simple, easy stitches
I spent the day quietly sewing. I found myself completely content, so much so I’ve continued to work on some new little projects.
I’ll show some of the finished projects next time,
