On an evening in May

It's finally the time, I thought, to have a little corner to post some photos and share updates on what kind of stitching I've been doing.  Why Russwood? - that's the name of the remote log cabin in Muskoka that belonged to my family for many years, and on the floor in front of our fireplace, in our home we now call Russwood Cottage, we still have a rag rug with that name woven in wool strips, crafted by one of the original owners of Russwood in Muskoka, William Woodbridge.   I'll be posting  photos of projects completed, projects underway, and  projects that are just waiting for the right time to be started.  And who knows?  maybe even adding a few other topics as time goes on .......

This Victoria Sampler design, "Home for Christmas", by Cathy Jean,  is one that I stitched in 2010 - the cabin reminds me of Russwood ....


  1. Welcome to the world of blogging, dear Di! I know you'll have a warm and inviting place on the blogosphere, just like your real home is.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Kathy - you're always welcome here :) I have lots to learn, and I'll know where to come for answers ;)

  3. What a nice blog! And what a lovely story! Thanks for sharing! And your stitching not half bad either! LOL! (it's beautiful, too!)
