IT'S GOOD TO BE HOME!

We've decided, we are NOT calling the last 3 weeks our vacation. We were away from home but NOT on vacation ... we did laugh, a lot, because of all the craziness with weather and credit card issues, and carpet cleaning and doctor appointments.  And now, I'm home in my snug, dry little house and life is good.

It's a beautiful morning, clear, crisp air. It's sunny and only going to be in the high 60's ... definitely hoping for some outside time today.

We did have a sewy-sighting on our hurri-cation.  This is the actual sewing machine that Orvil and Wilbur used to sew the "sails" (wings) for their airplane.  We managed a quick visit to the Wright Brothers Museum in Kitty Hawk before being kicked off the Outer Banks.

And just what have I been doing while away?  I knitted and felted some slippers.  It's a free patter - here - and an easy one too!


And did some hand embroidered embellishment on this skinny runner ...


And, although it doesn't show up too well, I did a lot of hand-work on this ...


I've been busy busy busy, now that I'm home. And it is good to be home!

That is the kind of vacation that makes you appreciate home, so much more, lol. Looks like you kept busy, wonderful pieces.

We also were away, and I am SO glad to be home again. Last year we went to the Wright Bros. museum too, and it was fun for the kids to see where it all happened. And how much has progressed since the Wright Brothers made that first flight. Amazing!

Your Tall Skinny looks so cute hanging in the trees! And the slippers are adorable too :)

Just happened upon your blog. Your projects are wonderful. I especially like the skinny runner. Is this your original creation or is there a pattern I can purchase? thanks!
