REALLY!? I mean, REALLY!!!???
|April 7th... it's S T I L L snowing. ! ?|
They are calling this 'the winter that won't go away'. Sheesh! : ) While shopping for groceries, I couldn't help but pick up a copy of 'Country Living' magazine. My mother has every issue since the '70s. They were strewn all over as I was growing up. Something about this cover made me happy inside and I bought it (I'm such a sucker).

I stopped by Creative House after that to deliver art and buy some hoops & gadgets for the Hand Embroidery classes I'm doing in the near future. I spied POSTCARD fabric. !! Have you seen this yet?

It reminded of the colors in the cover. I bought one panel just for fun. I plan to embellish it with some hand stitching. Of course, it's part of a design line so I HAD to get some of this too...
|! : ) wow. Postage stamps. Actual sized. Hundreds.|
I am going to have fun with these. After nearly 50 threadpaintings in 5 months, I am really looking forward to just poking around and embellishing with no intention whatsoever.
THAT inspired me to stitch what would really make me happy. I don't know about you, but I am craving DIRT and the color GREEN.
I want to smell it too.
