And, I’ll just put this right here, too.  I have no words, I think many of us are still rather shattered, and I can only wish peace for his family and the ultimate quiet of those inner demons for him.

Embroidered, Embellished, Pinterest Favorites

Things have started taking off in the shop this week.

Working-working-working!

Orders rolling in–early birds for Halloween are my favorites.

When things start taking off, and I start getting so busy, I always find myself getting enamored with techniques that force me to slow down.  That invite me to take that comfy seat and grab a cup of milky tea.

Hand-detailing suddenly obsesses me.

Anything that forces one to slow down, to take their time, to focus and to relax.

Hand-work, ahhhhh–always relaxing.

Pinterest Wednesday

Orders have slowed down around here, allowing me to catch up on some projects as well as plan some new ones.

And spend more time online.

My favorite pins of the week, in no particular order, and credited/linked when possible.

Pinterest Wednesday

I’m changing things up a little bit around here to free up more time to work on orders.  Attempting to blog 5 days a week was just making me crazy (or making me ignore the blog), so I’m scaling back to 3 days a week.

That said, who knows what will REALLY happen.

So, since I really enjoy sharing my Pinterest finds with you all, I’m moving Pinterest Friday to Wednesday!

My favorite finds of the week (and, as always, you can follow me here:  http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/):

Lazy Days

So, I disappeared for a few days.  It wasn’t intentional.  It was a spur-of-the-moment-hiatus.  From pretty much everything.  G was out of town all week, leaving me and the kitties to fend for ourselves.  The weather was all over the place.  The orders were a little sparse.  The audio-book wasn’t delivering.  The stack of items to sew up wasn’t singing to me.  I was waiting on mountains of fabric to arrive.

It all added up to me, a cross-stitch project that I’ve been working on for 3 years, lots of hot coffee and tea, a blanket and Netflix.

Also:  re-arranging the living room.

But, I’m back, ready to go, if not raring.  Maybe it’s the time of year?  The not-quite-spring but not-quite-winter weather?

So, I’ll leave you with some pretty for your Monday morning.  My morning started with my asking the universe why I couldn’t just have one more Sunday before starting the week.  Ah, universe, how you vex me.

These are my favorite Pinterest images from last week.  Come join me at:  http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/
