Last night when Selma asked to watch some TV I suggested that she might instead want to choose something out of her craft basket and finish it up. She found this punch-needle embroidery project that she had started during a summer class with Dottie at our local yarn store, The Net Loft. I love the colors she chose and the light shooting out from behind the mountain. Selma calls it “Magic Mountain,” and it is a little peak that she can see from her bedroom window. Right now Magic Mountain is completely snow covered.

Speaking of embroidery–Selma and I are excited because The Net Loft just got in some amazing hand-dyed thread from Romania. It comes in little three-strand balls intstead of skeins and you work right off of them–there are several weights some of which would be great for crochet.
