Journal entry: Dec 1, 2015

Amazing, it’s first of December, the fields are a lush green and though most of the trees are bare our Sunrise Maple is holding onto it’s collection of beautiful rusty-orange leaves. It’s a rainy day, good for putting my little potted evergreens and rosemary plants out onto our deck for a light drizzle watering.

My first counted needlework booklet, Ribbons and Thistle Flowers, is about to be published on Amazon in ebook and printed format. It’s in the proof stage, and

this morning I ordered a copy so we can proof the booklet in printed format.

My second counted needlework, Rhodes Stitch Collection, is fully charted. Majority of the Rhodes Stitch Collection booklet is written and I am stitching the design from the WIP copy of my Rhodes Stitch Collection booklet that I uploaded into Kindle format.

In case you noticed that lovely hardanger table mat underneath my iPad and embroidery, the fabric color is Cognac, the stitcher is Connie Kusevskis and I believe it is a Permin of Copenhagen design (but I’m not sure).
