Simple Pleasures for January......


Working on a small indigo art quilt. It features hand-dyed fabric (from shiborigirl.com), indigo bits and pieces, primitive embroidery stitches, and a ceramic button. Soon it will be finished....[click the photo for larger image].


A small begonia cutting given to me by my friend, Paula, has been thriving. I found a slightly larger pot for it and this lovely copper container...which picks up the color under the leaves!


A pot of rosemary was brought in from the garden....the pot (which I really like!) was beginnning to crack.....solution (maybe temporary but good) was to bind it with a bit of copper wire from Mr. P's workshop....

More simplicity in the copper and indigo blue vein.....a pottery bowl made by my brother, Chris now holds two large glass ornaments, a gift from friend, Tracie!
What are your simple pleasures for this week???

I love the quilt you're working on! My small pleasure this week is a small school slate that I found at a thrift store! Now I need to find a special place for it and take some photos! Enjoy your week! ♥
