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.


I’m now part of Hoffman’s Merchant Mall – a great way to shop from over 12,000 designs and have your order processed by me.

Other Webshop news – the LHN Little Women Gardening thread packs came in today, pictures soon and watch for your invoice if you are on the autoship, these will ship Monday morning!
