Wash on Friday, Iron on Saturday

Washing and Ironing. Two words I usually Do Not Enjoy, especially when put together. I used to iron everything years ago, the way my mother taught me, and her mother before her…but then life got busy.

The Littlest Lamb in The Tale of Two Lambs

Little lambs are wonderful!  And it has been so much fun creating these little lambs.  This one is the smaller of the two Angus Dei Ecclesiastical Embroidery projects. If it seems like he has been in the works for a long time, that is because he has.  Life has a way of changing well made plans.  When this little lamb was first begun, I was not working full time.  That has since changed, which has delayed getting this little guy to the final stages. Well, let’s talk for a few moments about some of the… Read more The Littlest Lamb in The Tale of Two Lambs
