This website is my idea of what quilting and needlework should be. Relaxing and fun. Simple hand needle arts and some sewing machine work along the way.  It’s not rocket science (more on this later for sure!) Making things by hand is satisfying and should be shared with friends and family, to share history and family traditions. Stop by often, rest on a lily pad and enjoy the photos, read the notes to the side under recent posts, be inspired, make something by hand! All photos on this site are my own, taken by me around Long Island and the North East.    C.J.
I’m moving on from wool Easter eggs to silk ribbon and wool Spring Brooches and some machine applique with rabbits. More later on this! Still have to update the Easter egg blog with step by step pictures though…….
