afternoon light

Because I work from noonish to darktime I rarely get to enjoy the afternoon sun. Off today and the weather cooperated so I spent a quiet afternoon stitching with that great light over my shoulder. Makes one's tired old eyes happy.
Things are creeping out of the cloth.




This treat was in the mail today - a whole boodle of silk snips and bits. I have to find a good plastic contain because a lot of jostling around will reduce this beauties to bundles of thread. A gorgeous trove - thanks Melissa, for this wonderful gift.

You are working in bits of magic here with all the stitching. Natural light is such a gift to experience when it comes to sewing, isn't it?
