I thought I was going on a painting jag, but halfway through, I got caught in a web of ... stitching. There's always so much inspiration and I have that insatiable urge to try things I love. However, it's all very well to be productive, but I'm running out of space to store my goods. More than ever, I dream of a little shop where people love what I make and everything flies out the door. For the moment I have to rely on my online etsy shops.
     I've managed to collect a stash of gorgeous French vintage and antique linens over the last couple of years; some are perfect for embroidery.

Soon to be in my Etsy shop.

Have a lovely start to the week.

Ná bris do loigrín ar stól nach bhfuil i do shlí. (Do not break your shin on a stool that is not in your way.)
