such loveliness as theirs?”

I love this one! I really like the writing style around the swan and the colour you used for it.

Thread as art is perfectly true when it comes to your designs!

This is one of my favorite blogs. I just never know what cleverness and creativity I'm going to encounter.

I love this one too. Did you embroider those words too?

That's beautiful, Cathy! I like the frame you used, too. It doesn't compete with the piece at all and let's you enjoy what you were meant to enjoy.

I just love your wit! Should you be in that lane is even making me smile now as I comment. :)

We flew the coop this weekend to get out of Irene's way and come home to no power... Hope your travels are nearing an end and that you can be home soon.
