Just take a look at this wonderfully wet world.
It has some very cute patterns for small quilts, needle books, pincushions, and wall-hangings. It also contains a good section about preparing a piece for embroidery and a good stitch dictionary. For someone looking to get back into hand embroidery (or just starting up as a beginner), it's a good resource.
Today I need to get some laundry done, and I'm going to weed a small patch outside. We're going to harvest at least enough corn for corn chowder for dinner...a favorite of mine. Aside from that, I'll just get back to my sewing. My kitties' needs are paramount in that regard. Mine needs are only secondary.
