wednesday = books

Okay – sorry about that! We took a little unplanned vacation {thank you for the emails & comments of concern, they were very sweet & I really appreciate you thinking of me!}…but I’m back now and am going to pick up my schedule today with a book. Another vintage Ondori embroidery book in fact!


Title: Ondori Embroidery No. 2
Publisher: Ondori Publishing Co.
Copyright: 1974







The day we left I got a wonderful surprise in the mail from sweet jessie but didn’t have time to post it before leaving...


Aren’t these just the, well, just the sweetest things she sent me?! I was so excited opening each individually wrapped present!
It was beyond generous & spontaneous – thank you so much sweet, sweet jessie!

adorable as always! I'm not too sure about the one that looks like two heads on a shelf, though. And the fawn fabric on that clutch is so great! I'm seeing great deer everywhere. I'm so jealous.

Wonderful gifts! I have to say the Ondori embroidery patterns are quickly becoming my favorite.
