I took some time to dream among my books.
Cross stitch is such an accessible craft and the results are so lovely. I really want to do this pretty Willow design. In blue and white of course.
I took time to sort and and set up most of my pretty blue and white china pieces. My living room is where these small things reside, offset by the crisp white of the furniture. Eventually, the upholstered furniture, which is not blue, will have a selection of blue and white cushions. All kinds of colourwork patterns could make wonderful additions to my room. An assortment of peeries. Any number of choices from my Kaffe Fassset library. Perhaps one day a blanket too.
In any case, I do have one new thing to add to my pretty blue and white things and that is my lovely yarn bowl.
It sits on my coffee table right where I can use every day. A quick test shows it works really great with this sock blank.
Things are slowly coming together here. Life is gradually settling down. This afternoon there will be knitting and tea. The house is clean, the dishes are done. With no other pressing chores, it is time to sit and enjoy. I am looking forward to it.
