Today feels like autumn. Unlike last week which felt like late spring. After finishing some orders today and a request from Minnie (a unicorn tee-shirt but with short sleeves, please), I stole a few minutes to sit and stitch. A warm quilt on my lap, puppy dog not too far away and a hot coffee to sip.
The stitching is from a picture by Minnie (you can see the original below). I am embroidering it onto a pillow slip and as I am so pleased with how it looks, every member of our families will be getting one for Christmas. They will forget about it by then so its OK to mention it here. I simply traced the design onto the pillow slip using a pencil. Then I just stitched along the lines. Its fairly plain to see that I am no stitcher. Just some messy little stitches. But I like them. If you are looking for more ideas, there are more in this book.
But of course the quiet wont last too long for I have to collect a very special little one from pre-school. To be honest, I collect her early as I don't really like it too quiet around here.
