Sunday's....my favorite day of the week.
For me, it's a day to worship, relax, reflect and
Last year I started a new routine of having
a special sampler that would
only be stitched on
SUNDAYS & ROAD TRIPS.
Progress is slow, but I look so forward
to the pleasant hours set aside for this special samplar.

My favorite needles are by John James in a size 28 petite.
These needles have a shorter shaft, which makes
them very comfortable to hold, and you can
use almost all of your thread. They also
come in bigger sizes and I sell these needles in my Etsy Shoppe.

I love surrounding myself with lovely antique sewing
tools that I've been collecting for many years.

The stitch count is 440W by 460H ~
I do my own framing, so I've already started the search
for just the right size antique frame.
|~ I'm using silk thread "Soie d' Alger" by "Au Ver A Soie" ~|
|~ I find it so relaxing filling large areas ~|

It's raining here today....but here are a few pictures from a couple
of days ago when the sun was shining bright!

|~ I do love rabbits! ~|
Hope you are enjoying a lovely day in your
corner of the world. As for me I must
go now, to enjoy some coffee & stitching :)
Until tomorrow...Have a lovely Lord's day.
