  • Christine S.: Feeling folky…especially when watching excerpts from the Neil Patrick Harris version of “My Antonia” with all my juniors today to culminate with the Honors’ students the unit on American Realism and introduce to the Academic students the same literary movement!:)7 years ago

  • One of my absolute favorite books! I had no idea there was a movie version, and with NPH no less!7 years ago

  • Julie: Nesting dolls embrodiery pattern! Oh gosh, too cute. Now, if only I knew how to do embrodiery…7 years ago

  • Julie, Seriously, it is the easiest thing in the world. If you can do a kindergarten craft, you can embroider. Order one of those sampler from Sublime Stitching and she gives you instructions on the basic stitches. It’s really just a matter of in and out, up and down. And think of all the pretty tea towels and pillowcases you can make!7 years ago

  • s. stockwell: Your site is always a delight! We collect the blue & white. Best from Montecito, California where it’s raining!!7 years ago

  • Julie: I’m totally inspired! I just bought Le Petite Embroidery Kit. Choosing the pattern was the best part: Sexy Librarians, Vital Organs, Chi Chi Fever — oh la la. I’m so excited for it to come!7 years ago

  • s., Absolutely love blue and white china, too!

    Julie, Hoorah! I’m so glad you went for it! I like to think I just played a small part in opening the big awesome world of embroidery up to you! My work for today is done. 🙂7 years ago

  • rhonda35: Love this! I have a thing for vintage tea towels – especially the ones with calendars on them. They remind me of my great-grandmother. I used to embroider all the time as a girl from age 9 to about 16 and even made a quilt with my mother and grandmother by embroidering the squares, etc. I still have that quilt. I was just thinking about taking it up again, in a more free-form artsy way, about two weeks ago – and now your post…do you think someone is trying to tell me something??7 years ago

  • beth: cute! i didn’t know that was the name for this type of design — but as a huge pyrex fan i probably should have. thanks for getting me up to speed!7 years ago
