Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Bluebird of Happiness

I'm so glad Joy taught a class on wool applique and I'm so glad I took that class. It's so much fun to do, quick and cute! My newest creation from a larger pattern that Joy let me borrow. Should have taken pictures before I put it under glass thus the reflection. And taken in a dark basement, thus the blur.





Slowly decorating the playroom in the basement. I got that old window at an estate sale last fall.

Great grouping. I love wool embroidery, too. I also love tatting. How about you learn how, then teach a class! Wonderful idea!
