A birthday 17

May 17,  was special this year.  It was a year of starts which also fell on my birthday.  I saved a project for me.  It was a birthday start, a name sake start and a year of starts project.  I could not wait to start this one.

Robin Hood – Little House Needleworks

A wee bit blurry, but at the same time I believe that it adds a whimsical touch to the piece.  I have been enjoying the Little House Needlework designs and my wish list is full of them.

Frederick has almost reached the one side,  Irish blessings continues to sprout good luck through out the piece.  My cup of tea is just a joy to stitch.   I want to stitch them all!!

A journey into Maynia pt 1

Once upon a time; May 1 to be exact; a little ship set out to sail. Reds, blues, yellows and a bit of orange billowed in the winds.

 The next day the winds drew in a chill to the little ship.  She shivered.
But a pair of mittens shield the worst of the icy waves.

Dreams later on erupted into a whimsical sight of dancing dragons.

Those dreams took off to a place of heat. There in the sand lay possible answers to all. Cacti and clay pots how could that be?

And then there was a wonderful wake up from the dreams of dancing dragons and clay pots.  The smell of fresh brewed coffee drifted from the galley of the little ship.

The little ship all warm and toasty continues her sail,  heading into another day.

Dreams and Clouds

Once upon a time there was a little line that grew and soared among the clouds.  He grew and stretched his wings.  He danced with the stars, chased the raindrops over the hills and disappeared along the milky way.

He hid on the moon and etched out a bed, stars and clouds covered his slumbering form.  A finger of sunlight tickled his nose,  kissed his cheeks and

He woke up to soar among the clouds and stars again!

And he grew

And he grew.  Now there was the start of a smile,  a wink of an eye and twinkle he arched his neck.  The green scales glistened in the sun.

He still was locked into place but something was starting to grow and he couldn’t wait to see what else there was going to be.   It wasn’t enough there was more and he wanted it!
