while away

Nick is on a mission trip this week. We have had snow, mud, art, and crafts to keep us busy here.

It’s so quiet at night, when all the kids are sleeping, and there is no adult conversation going on.

I’ve gotten myself on a cross stitch kick, so you’re going to have to bare with me. My sewing machine isn’t keeping good tension, so no quilt blocks are coming together. Those darn machines are seemingly determined to stop my mental momentum. Does that happen to you?

I do love a new craft to learn, so it’s just as well. I remember watching my own mama cross stitching. I like that I’m enjoying the same thing she enjoys. There’s a special plan for a little flower I finished, which I do believe, a certain girl with a fast-approaching birthday is going to adore.

What is new in your tiny corner of the Earth?

One thought on “while away

  1. I started cross stitching last year, that’s a time consuming project, but results can be fun. Unless they’re smaller ones. I’m working on a 8 x 10 peacock picture. I’m excited for when I get to finish it. Maybe you gotta quilt it by hand. It would probably turn out better quality done that way.
