Congratulations and Thank You

Congratulations to Connie (of Colorada) and Hannah (in the UK) for winning the birthday giveaway. Thank you all so much for you comments and good wishes. It was so nice to hear from so many of you! You really made my day.

The tendonitis (always present) in my elbow has just exploded over the last couple of days. I'll be resting it up a bit and keeping a low-ish :) profile while I let it heal. Dang, this drives me nuts! But am holed up with good books: A Visit from the Goon Squad; Jennifer Egan and Creative Time and Space; Rice Zachary Freeman. Also lurking around is The New Crewel by Katherine Shaughnessy - but it is perhaps filled with too much inspiration and would make me yearn to stitch!

In the meantime ... I love this photo:
An olive grove near Assissi. Doesn't it look like a beautiful ballet?

Off to ice and ibuprofen.

The olive trees are fantastic!!! They look like something out of Fantasia dancing in the field. Rest your wing and we will be waiting for your return.
