I'm back from Vermont (where I, among many other things, made an embroidered potholder for my grandmother for her eightieth birthday, stitched up a scarf using pieces of voile from Anna Maria Horner's amazing Little Folks line, and received a lovely new print for our new apartment), but we're now jetting off to DC for the weekend to explore and hopefully find a place to live (!). Crafty updates will have to wait, but in the meantime, here are some colorful, recently starred items from the good ol' Google Reader:

Amazing paintbox floor pillow by Holly at stitch/craft

I've since framed it using a frame I found at Goodwill and painted black, to match all of our other frames.

You can view more of Freya's work in her shop.
