Stitching a Few Leaves

Today was a quiet day devoted to stitching. After finishing up a sewing project, which I will write about soon, I managed to get a few hours in on my Persian Peony Tile. It doesn't look like much progress, does it? But I did embroider all the lower leaves, outline and fill the two tiny ones under the big red peony, and couch a couple of stems.  It was so nice to get back to working on this project. I really have missed it.

So you may ask, why was my day so quiet? Two of the guys I live with (hubby and son) went out to the desert and practiced their shooting. You can see the mementos they left me on my sewing machine. Sweet, isn't it?

It's Sunday evening and I had better start ironing some clothes for the week. Have a great week, and I hope all of you can get some stitching done!


  1. Looking good Cynthia! How nice of those thoughtful men to leave you little prizes! Your quiet day sounds just wonderful!

    Persian Peony Tile is looking gorgeous. I can understand why you would have missed it.
