sweet escape...

Half my house is in boxes... and the other half I'm putting into boxes. To procrastinate packing I draw girls feeding berries to friendly bear among fantastical flowers. It takes the boxes out of my mind and puts the stress ball into the garbage bin at the curb. That's better!
I'll see you in early December... from my new office:)

Hi Helen ~ I stopped by to grab the permalink for your Festive Dog embroidery design and saw that you'd also posted a second Festive Dog design. However, there's not a title for the post that contains the second pattern, so I haven't been able to grab a permalink for it. I'll be posting about both patterns on my blog and have told folks how to get to the second design by going through your archives or using the search box, but wanted to give you a heads-up that the post itself can't be linked to without a title.

Thanks for sharing both patterns. This is my second time to stitch up the first one; I love it! I wasn't aware of the second one until today, but I'll be stitching it up too - if not this Christmas, then next =).

(Oh, the post without the title is from 12-16-08.)

I know EXACTLY how you feel now! At least you have the pretty girl and the lovely bear to keep you company and calm... 'cause boxes may cause temporary insanity! :)

I can't belive how lovely things you've created!
Love all of them

I love your psychedelic butterflies, the soft mingling of coulours and the muted palette.
