My friend and extremely talented seamstress Amy at Ponder and Stitch recently had a free shipping sale and it was just enough to prod me to head over to her etsy store. I have wanted one of her cuffs for a long time--this time I found one that spoke to me- especially right now as I am suffering from a bit of the winter blues. My new cuff arrived this last weekend and I have only taken it off to take baths- I have had it on my wrist constantly! I love it so much!! It is so much more elegant and dainty than the pictures at her store show- the stitching is so sweet- I embroider a lot, but I have never been able to stitch words this delicately- I am in awe and inspired to work on my stitching more! I also love the words so much- sometimes when I am a bit depressed it helps if I tell myself to stop overwhelming my brain- to stop and be still for awhile and be calm. Now when I find myself needing to settle down, to breathe and relax- I just glance at my wrist. I calm down and relax- but I smile too because I am reminded of the wonderful friends I have met from blogging that I have never met in person, but whom I feel so close to all the same. Thank you so much Amy- I really love it a lot! If you have never met Amy you should pop over to her blog and say hello. She is the sweetest person and her blog is amazing♥ Check out her etsy store too- I see she just listed a new headband I am coveting !! http://www.etsy.com/shop/ponderandstitch
I'm going to list a give-away this afternoon, so I'll see you all a bit later !
