Van Gogh.

I would like to take a minute to apologize for my shotty photography. I don't typically have much time to photograph, so I'm either trying to capture early morning light (on my way out the door) or soft light at home in the evening. Both have their limitations. With that said, I think this is the last of these little stitched pieces for awhile. It's nice to come home and have something already started that I don't have to really focus on, but I have ideas for other larger projects. I've also started cutting pieces for a sample quilt, mostly to get better acquainted with my sewing machine. I figure that the more I use it, the less anxious I will be of breaking it. This is an actual, somewhat irrational fear only to be conquered by taking the time to learn.

Not much else is new. I continue to doubt that it's actually winter. It's been so mild here and GREEN. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I will say this, I'd rather it snow now than in April. We'll see what happens.

I recreated the e e cummings piece as a commission for a friend. I promise it looks better in person. Or, well it's growing on me. I have a few other things in the works so hopefully more updates soon. Until then...
