The verse ".....is my name and with my needle I wrought the same" was the inspiration for my company name.
I hope you'll enjoy stitching my designs.

Things are a flurry of activities getting ready for Nashville, but I wanted to take a few moments to answer some questions about the hare threadwinders that are in the photo for Miss Trenner's Needlework Academy. The threadwinders and the black storkette scissors are from Kelmscott Designs. I thought both were wonderful. Your favorite needlework shop can order them for you.
Tom left this afternoon to help his father in Jacksonville. Tom's mother is once again in the hospital. We don't know how long Tom will need to be down there.
Meanwhile we're expecting snow over the weekend. I sure hope it's not too bad. If we do get a lot of snow, hopefully my "snow angel" will show up since I know with my back I won't be doing any shoveling myself.
You may be wondering about my "snow angel". A few years ago someone secretly cleared the snow off our driveway. It took quite some time to figure out who had done it. When I called our neighbor, Hud, to thank him, his daughter told me that years ago when they were living in Wisconsin, her father got stuck in the snow for quite a few hours. He decided that the snow would not defeat him and bought a big snow blower. Often when it snows, he clears quite a few driveways on our street. I have nicknamed him our "snow angel".
Hopefully I can spend some time with Elizabeth Mears. Maybe I'll take a photo tomorrow so I can show you my progress.
