When I happened upon this little 12"x12" piece while searching for a needle and thread in Amelia's sewing basket, I knew I would have to post it on my blog, seeing as how the pattern I've been weaving is called Sun Moon and Stars, after all. It was embroidered by one of my daughter's 11 year-old friends, Sierra Stanley. I have followed Sierra's artistic expressions throughout the time we have known her and I am always delighted by her work. Hopefully, there will be much more to come!

I just received an exceptional gift - four 2-meter lengths of prints from the Marimekko store in Helsinki. My father was there last month for a conference and brought these back. Gorgeous, bold and big! I'm thinking giant window shades for my studio. That ought to brighten things up a bit this winter.
