On my shelf.........................

I had to draw my shoe....................

I just had to embroider this bird
.......



I've been printing vintage hemp..............



I don't want to do any work like cleaning up or ironing now...
Just for today I want to sew and read and dangle my feet in the river...just for today..I am in love with the colour 'bone' and cool shadows and the sky looking the best grey I have ever seen. These are some corners of my unkempt world...because today I'm doing nothing I don't want to do...nothing at all....

As far as I'm concerned, you are living in a perfect world (at least for today anyway). Love the little embroidered birdie.

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

You seem to me to have been hard at work . You deserve to wade in the water.
Inspired by a recent post you did on a designer I did one on Krista Larson. You might enloy it if you never had a chance to check her site.

Wise Lyn...we all NEED days such as these...'soul' days to renew and refresh.
I love the vessels in the top photograph, just beautiful.

Have a peaceful weekend,
Niki

Jema Rose said...

You are SO right, living next to horrid people isn´t helping me at all...I wish that I had enough money to buy a small cottage, but I don´t...So I am trying to find something to rent, but it is not so easy to find...

Love & hugs to you too!!!

Good morning Lynn!

Just wanted to stop, missed you lately! I am sure you are working againg, OR, you are enjoying holiday and crafty fun days :)) You are not drowning totally are you? My gosh, it is raining elephants over here!! It seems like heaven is angry, I could barely sleep from all the noise. But it has a good side too, snuggling up, drinking warm lovely tea (new favourite: Lemon ginger, with a spoon of honey, delicious!!!) and embroidering :)

I hope all is well, sending you lots of warm hugs!!

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I've included a photo of your beautiful hand drawn shoe in my post on shoes this morning. Hope you don't mind me using one of your pictures.

The French Bear said...

Oh my goodness, I love your painting of the shoe and I love, love the embroidery, is that your own pattern? How beautiful, you have such a fine hand with your needlework!!!
Cheers,
Margaret B

Something White said...

Bonjour!
Wouldn´t you sell that drawing of your shoe?? I would like so much to have a series of 3 nice drawings like this one for my future ´Atelier´, but for the moment I didn´t find anything that I like. Your drawing is so beautiful in its simplicity. Pure and true.
Many greetings from Belgium,
Marjolijn
