Fiber Friday – stitch stories

I picked this book up at the library a few weeks ago and briefly paged through it.  This morning, I settled in on the couch (up far too early again) and gave it a read.  I do love the idea of using fabric and thread to record memories and made a list of ideas to try before I return the book.  

I did a search to find out more about the author and found some good articles about stitch artists.  And I spent a bit of time catching up with this beautiful blog.  But now it is time to move into this day and hope for some stitching time this weekend.

P.S.  it is a few weeks away but you might want to visit Michelle and read about her upcoming workshop.  Another way to stitch up some memories and stories with paper and pen.

It is scratched and stained.  And because there are no small children in the house, it doesn’t get cleaned as often as it should.  We have talked about refinishing but it is a big project that keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the list.  But this floor holds many stories.  Of family meals, cookie parties, brewing beer.  We have danced across this floor, spilled coffee and milk and shattered a few dishes.  There are stories of the puppy that never seemed to figure out that this was a slippery space and the new dog who clicks her away across the surface.

This floor has stories to tell.
