A wee little moth was resting on one of my Brown-Eyed Susans the other day. And why not? Every creature needs to rest. I took this on the Macro setting. He was so tiny that I wasn’t even sure he was a moth at first.
I’m getting read to start on this sampler designed by Rebecca of Drop Cloth. I’ve had it for months and just never got around to it. It’s called the Cake Sampler and was inspired by a vintage cake decorating book. If you remember, I embroidered another of her samplers last year:
I really love her designs – she has another one coming out on Monday. I think I need some calming, meditative handwork to get me through these worrisome days. Dad spoke to both Meredith and me last night, in tears, about having to make some sort of decision about Mom’s care. He cannot be the primary caregiver any longer – it is simply too much for him. His heart is breaking. They’ve been together over 65 years and she is the love of his life. Our hearts are breaking, too.
I think some embroidery is in order.
I’ve enlarged the size of my photos. What do you think – are they too big? Let me know.
Have a good weekend.
