Between various house and garden repair projects I have not been keeping up with posts. However, I have been slowly embroidering on the piece above, from a hand dye. It is the slow work that I love to do.
Perfect for the hot days of summer.

- Not making anything of it
I will be taking more time offline this summer, so posting will be light until fall. Have a great summer!
