Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

A Stitch in Time....

I found this Etsy shop while reading through posts on my Blog List.  I love that I can find new ideas and craft inspiration by simply visiting another crafty person's blog and seeing what they are up to.

Charlotte is a designer specializing in embroidery patterns.  You can buy PDFs of her work or you can purchase pre-printed panels just like the one I am working one here.  
I haven't embroidered in years - we're talking 20 years!! I haven't stitched anything like this since my mother first taught me to do it back when I was still in elementary school.  
Funny, even though years have passed I can still hear my mother saying, "Make small stitches!"
Are these small enough??

I really like the sentiments that Charlotte has incorporated into her design.  Stitching over the words adds an emphasis and texture, hopefully catching anyone's eye.   


I placed it in a black frame and I plan on adding it to the gallery wall grouping in  our Family Room.    
See my lovely new jug and saucer set??  I fell in love with it at the local Goodwill and I had to have it! I figure I could swing the $1.99!!
