A Little Birdie Or Two.

Posted on | April 2, 2013 | 13 Comments

On our recent trip I made a point of taking some stitching with me. I made sure it was something easy that could be picked up and worked on without too much fuss.

These are two of the pieces from Teddlywinks. They are pre-printed stitcheries. I used a variegated Cottage Garden thread for both.

Very portable and good to work on.


We thoroughly enjoyed our time in NYC.

After a little study we managed to master the  subway system.


I really enjoyed the way many of the stations had decorative designs relating to the stop.

This one is the stop near the zoo in Central Park.

And these were near the Museum of Natural History – marine murals and fossil plaque.

I think these were great ways to identify stops. Good entertainment, too.
