I'm amazed today at just how little it takes to make me happy. Yesterday and today I have been getting ready for the big holiday show at Albany Shaker and so I decided to make a few holly and berry pillows. Well I was embroidering and listening to Andrea Bocelli and I felt wonderfully peaceful and wonderfully happy. I had forgotten just how little it takes to make me peacefully, joyfully happy. Somewhere in the last year I lost the joy of embroidering and it makes me sooooooo happy to have found the joy again. That is my quest now to work with joy and happiness and peace. I also finished my circle hand which is going to visit the Katbird Shop shortly afterward(the most wonderful shop in Schenectady with unique gifts in every(and I do mean every) price range). I still have to frame it and then I will share it. No mats to my amazement so it will have to wait till a trip to Michaels so perhaps later in the week. I'll let you know when it is in it's new home and share a photo. I've also made some cute new knit bags which I love, love, love. No pictures(as they don't have linings yet). Well I can go on for hours but I think I'll stop here and go visit my bloggy friends. Check back soon for photos and enjoy the rest of your weekend in joy and happiness too!

Yes, happy IS good! I have gotten back to "my roots" of embroidery this year and it has been SO enjoyable. I haven't done it in years and was suddenly possessed with the desire, so have been embroidering for several months. My Grandma started me on embroidery when I was about 6 and I just started my 4 year old granddaughter Lily. She loved it!

Thanks for the nice comments! That makes me happy too. Laura I love that you are doing embroidery and that you are passing it on to another generation. Needlework is something that never fails to pick me up no matter how low, so teaching it to another is giving them a lifelong present.
