a new stitch in my repertoire

Sew...I have learned a new stitch. Rather, I have learned to stitch in a new (to me) medium...sheep. I have sewn wool. I have mended beloved stuffed creatures. But, this week, I mended a live one. Well, I needed to mend him because I am the one who injured him! You can read more about it: I am a to sew natural fibers, but come now! Let's just say, I much prefer batiste, lawn, linen and the like. Smocking wins over suturing, hands down.

are lovely

It is a notion that I cling to. Whatsoever things which are useful, ought to also be beautiful.
