Hello, my virtual friends (and my sweet husband, who will no doubt spot this new post! xxx).

I am newly arrived in Salt Lake City for a whirlwind of writing collaboration, guest lecture, and classroom visit.  It's great to get away from home and the usual routine, but of course I miss both already.

I have one little (fairly) recent project to share, and it gives me a chance to try the alternative mode for inserting photos to blog posts suggested by my wise pal Jan.  Live and learn...and I do have a lot to learn.

There won't be much sewing for me this week (I brought along my current little hand quilting/wholecloth project, but it may not see much action).  In the meantime, here is some simple embroidery made a couple of weeks ago by one-who-knows-little about embroidery (I just make it up as I go along), but I think the cuteness of the vintage transfer (from this book) carries the show!

Have a great week!

That is a very cute embroidery. It would look very cute framed up in that hoop. Good luck with your work trip. I hope you get some time for sight seeing.

So cute and as I`m just about to try my hand at some embroidery, I shall be `showcasing` some little doodles myself. I hope. I think I need a little hoop though... Good luck in SLC. That`s where lovely Maggie hangs out.

That's so adorable! Makes me want to pick up a hoop.
