Hello, you. Yes, I know it's been awhile since I've made any appearance here. I've had my hands full of responsibilities that left me no time or energy for blogging. A totally unexpected hiatus. I'm taking a moment at the end of a lovely day off (Happy Mother's Day!), to pop in here and let you know I'm still around. Just very, very busy working long hours with my husband.
Anyways, I wanted to share a peek at some lovely Tilda fabrics I received several weeks ago, as a part of a personal swap with my lovely friend, Maja.
|Lovely Tilda fabrics to play with!|
She shares my love of Tilda designs and kindly offered to surprise me with some, while I got to surprise her with fabrics of my choosing. What fun!
|Mmmm... loving those lush ribbons and that Tilda stitchery.|
Along with the fabric goodness, she sent me some Tilda ribbons and a sweet stitchery. What treats! Thank you so much, Maja.
|Thinking of framing this bit of handwork for my sewing room wall. I adore Tilda designs!|
Despite being beyond tired from all the crazy long work hours and a four day event last month (that made things extra crazy here... more on that on another post), I managed the odd moment to work on the stitchery. Nothing beats some quiet handwork for bringing some serenity and joy to the everyday grind. Oh, it was such bliss to stitch!
This week promises more of a crush on my time and creative energy, but I finally settled into my sewing room late today for some fabric play and managed to cut up a few pieces for a new project. I needed this so much! I'm hoping that I can get stitching on this latest idea sooner rather than later. Plus, I'm really hoping a prospective work project comes through for us this week so we can get off this crazy ride we've been on, trying to make ends meet. It's truly been exhausting. Okay, enough whining. ;o)
Here's to all Moms, near and far, hoping you had a lovely day with your loved ones on Mother's Day!
Happy Mother's Day!
