Sister Stitching

[ Inger's Cushion. Love, Anna x]

Happy birthday to my sister Inger. I stitched this cushion together yesterday, and will be mailing it to her today * crossing my fingers it will make it in time* 

My children returned to school today, and the house is strangely quiet. I have been up since 5 o'clock and have been buzzing with energy, which is a bit odd since I barely slept last night 
*for whatever reason* 
I am back to being creative, and can't wait to jump into the insanity that is my life. 

Happy September!
