sheltering

While in Lewis on Sunday I happened to find this lovely shop (top picture). It was closed but as I peered through the window an looked at all the bits and bobs laying around, it kind of reminded me of the possibilities for my workroom at home. The rest of the week I have been sheltering from the rain clouds in the peace of our little flat, packing and posting a couple of orders. Working on some new things. I sold one of my stitched postcards and that really made my day. Hope that sun reappears on Sunday. Have a lovely weekend.

back soon.

OH, I would so love to sit with a cup of tea and a small plate of cookies at that lovely table in that lovely, lovely room. Jut chatting with friends. You've created a beautiful space that seems perfect for connecting.
