I love the sound of rain hitting the windows. You know that nice steady light tapping on the window. The last few days have been cleaning days and not too much sewing.

She carried around a blue one … Continue reading Monday after Easter

The subject of her pieces looked almost 3D. Here are a few of the pictures I took last night. They blurred when I cropped them, but I hope you … Continue reading In Awe
