This is the new pillow I am going to stitch on today. I hope to have it available soon, so that it can be displayed in your home for Valentine's Day. I actually think it would be great to have out all year long. This pillow front is made entirely of wool, however I'm considering a plaid homespun back and perhaps binding it in the same plaid fabric, which is a rich looking brown and black. Enough about the pillow. The time for just hanging out is over...it was delightful while it lasted, but now I'm
back with a purpose and feel all energized. I still take time every morning which is my own, and that is my time for quiet contemplation and reading.
I must report that the apricot pie made from the fresh apricots which grandpa put in his freezer was scrumptious. I believe I will heat up a piece and have it with a cup of coffee for my breakfast. Fruit and a flaky crust, I do believe that sounds like breakfast fare.
"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the past, the present, and the future. The spirits of all three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach". -Charles Dickens
