Missing in action

I'm still here! I promise!
My 14 yr old daughter Isabel has just had knee surgery after she tore her ACL playing basketball.

Isabel having her dressing removed-we'll spare you the gory details!

Life has been a mess, and I have only had time to keep up with orders and check in once in a while.  She is a brave girl and I cannot believe what she has had to go through so far. And the therapy is just starting.
I have been playing with raised embroidery on wool felt whenever I can catch a moment.

I had the idea to create a wool embroidery piece for my soon-to-be-born grand daughter. My daughter is trying to put together a nursery with bright colors and a woodsy theme, so my mind  turned to the Waldorf inspired toys and rainbow palette. I have been having some fun with this!

I will be framing this in a shadowbox type frame when completed
So that's where I've been.
 I am enjoying using the bright colors-makes me feel like spring will actually come!
 We have been having a really late winter with January type temperatures in March!
Hopefully that will end soon, I mean its almost Easter!
