This is my getaway folder. Obviously it hasn't had much use this year.
There's a pocket for my favorite gardening magazine, another for my sketch book and a zipper pocket for the pencils.
I'm sure we'll all be ready to getaway next year!
My Summer Garden was the final project in the Life's Pleasures Club.

The second sample is almost finished.
I've been having fun embellishing fabrics with simple stitches.
And the birdie print used in the original sample.
This weekend I plan to check out my stash and see if I have other prints that lend themselves to some simple embellishing.
I've used the most basic of stitches, back stitch, daisy stitch and colonial knots.
I much prefer Colonial Knots to French Knots.
Unlike my French Knots, my Colonial Knots stay put!
