When the going gets tough....


....the Tough get stitching. I was working on a new design, but the events of previous days proved too distracting. I needed something small to work on--I get very grumpy when I don't have something to stitch!

I pulled out this little design--only three inches round on 18 ct. canvas--which I originally painted as an insert for a Sudberry House Nantucket basket lid. Why not stitch it as an ornament? I added the year toward the bottom of the water and am ready to go.

This particular lighthouse is located on Curtis Island in Camden, Maine, a beautiful part of the country that I visited many years ago.

This is a great way to deal with troubling times, and the size is just right!

You're exactly right Anne, and Judy would have it no other way. I am sorry for your loss of a dear friend. Hugs.

Delightful, and a good antidote to trouble.
