I’m not very optimistic about the chance of a trip to Japan in the near future but Norway is a little closer…
I stitched this little piece based on traditional Norwegian Folk Art this week.
Mostly bright 8 weight perle cotton with just a couple of variegated threads.
My favorite sewing spot is this corner of the sofa in the family room.
I need to check for needles before I sit down… I’ve spent a lot of time on the couch in the past few days.
There isn’t a lot of natural light at any time of day in that room so I’m very happy to have a Stella Sky light next to my chair. It really is my favorite lamp!
…which is why I’m delighted to remind you that the folks over at Stella are running an amazing promotional giveaway right now.
This is what they asked me to tell you,
