January 11th, 2011

Today we are bracing for a big winter storm. Winter is the season to rest your body and rejuvinate your mind.What a perfect time to sit by the fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa and hook away the day.
In 2010 my daughter got married and for a wedding present she requested a rug for over her sofa in her new home. I was thinking something floral perhaps but it seems she had something completely different in mind. (The New York City skyline)
For those of you who know me, that couldnt be further from what I normally do.
After months of agonizing over this rug, its finally almost done.

  1. You present a peaceful and very tempting scene!

    Hopefully you'll post a photo of the rug when it's completed.


These are a couple of pincushions I whipped up for The Designer Craftsman show this weekend.
They were allot of fun to do but allot of work too.

After a nice long nap by the fireplace the girls take time out for a quick photo shoot.

The girls. Never wake sleeping babies has always been my motto.
