I've been absent from this space while (among many other things) I really, truly get the basement ready for the contractors. They are coming on Monday and I am both anxious to finish clearing the room but am also excited to begin moving forward to have a space to claim as my own.
I still manage to do handwork in my quiet moments. I made more birds.
The other went to Alison of Rumpelfeltskin, who sent me this lovely wool felt bird with heart shaped wings. Just look at how perfect her stitches are...and I love the cinnamon stick branch.
Back to the basement...wish me luck.
