I've had this little piece of embroidery for years, and for most of those years, it's been hanging out in the drawer. Oh, it got a little love now and again, but always got stuffed back in time-out before it was finished.
Yesterday, it saw the light of day again. And I finished it. It's 'finished' as any piece of embroidery can be because, let's face it...you can continue to stitch and stitch and stitch until every tiny space is filled. So, I guess I just decided it was 'done-enough'.
This morning it became a pillow.
and was immediately adopted.
I used an old (old old old old old old feather pillow in a ticking cover) that probably has a 100 years of smells only a dog can smell. (for an old pillow, to me, it smells just fine)
Someone is in love.

And now...the Facebook thing. I'm hardly ever on that format/platform/whatever you call it. Somehow, though, my blog is. It appears there rather magically, but I think I've finally figured out how to remove it. ( With Facebook being mostly a picture and a few words space...I don't think it's a very good place for my blog that sometimes gets wordy and sometimes is overrun with photos.) I have been rather surprised to discover, though, that some people actually read the blog there. ???? really??? If you happen to be one of them and would like to continue following Freddy and me (since he's sort of taken over the blog lately), on the sidebar is a button to click to follow me on Bloglovin'---an easy way to follow that will bring our knitting adventures to your email box whenever we post.
We're also on Instagram @woolythyme1, a format that I'm loving increasingly more and more. (In fact, I'm there toooo much...and am toooo distracted by it!!! I thought I hit 'publish' on this post days ago and haven't been back since!! eeep....is that indicative of what the future might hold??? It seems more and more of my blog friends have switched to Instagram. Any opinions???)
