smells like quiet

I’m thankful for neighbors, needlework, quiet days, and the way lavender smells!

Yesterday we had a very bad family emergency. I won’t go into details, I don’t even want to think about it anymore. Everyone is going to be fine, we are all still quite emotional and I have a few physical side effects to deal with but thankfully it is a new day. Sorry to be vague, trust me, it was just BAD!

We are having a sweet day of quiet, it has been very dark and rainy which just adds to the comfort and coziness of being home doing things you love. I finished up my lavender pillow using some of my grandmother’s old buttons, you can see the lavender through the shimmery fabric on the back.  I cut a new batch of flowers to fill another similar pillow using this Little House piece I stitched quite a while ago. It will probably take the lavender at least a week to dry before I can use it.

  6. I am so sorry to hear about your family troubles. I hope and pray that today, a couple of days after, things have settled and eased. The pillow is gorgeous! I love lavender. I can’t wait to see the second lavender pillow. though I am sure it will be just as beautiful as your first.

  7. I am so sorry about your emergency and am glad that everyone is ok. Your pillow is quite lovely! It is a slow rain here today and all I want to do is sit and stitch or read. Toss up!
