Birds and ... more birds

I can't believe January is almost gone. Happy 2016!!  I hope you get to do everything you put your mind to... and then some more.
Half of my month went in a daze of shorts, sandals, and warm blue skies... the other half in a mist of cold and grey, nursing a sick kid.
Life is always balancing itself out, teaching me a few things, and I'm always grateful for all of it.

Two days ago I started reading this book, which was a Christmas present from my sister. What an amazing, inspiring and wonderful read. Can't think of a better book to start the year with.

I have also joined this Valentine's day swap, and I will show you what I will send in a few weeks. As you already might know I LOVE Valentine's day. Hearts just make me happy, and so I have started embroidering a few and adding them little by little here.

Soon I'll be going to Edinburgh for the very first time in my life. And I'm not only looking forward to seeing the city, but also meeting some of my Paper Love friends. We have a very active group on Facebook, and now we have an actual face to face meeting... I just couldn't be more excited about it.

This picture just makes me so happy, I had to share it with you.

And finally...I finished my bird!!!  I'm very happy with it, as it is my first attempt at working in a bigger format -other than the tiny pieces I embroider to sell. I'm trying to push myself, to get out of my comfort zone, to try and translate certain feelings and experiences into the fabric. So far it has been a wonderful experience, and I'm looking forward to finish my latest piece so that I can show it to you.

Sending you a very big and warm hug. I really hope all is well at your end,
Giova
