It's a funny thing.  We can plan and search and create 
to get just the right look, at the right angle, 
and have everything in its place~
and then.....

You see, I found this board at a yard sale for a dollar or two.
It doesn't match a thing in my house.
I had no idea what on earth I would do with it, but
it wanted to go home with me.
As I was thinking,"I don't need more junk," I gave the dollar,
and home with me it came.
(work in progress - please forgive the markings)
Little did I know that day just how much I would use
that board.  It has been host to letter-writing,
stitching (nearly every day,) or occasionally just a flat surface
for my tea if I am sitting on the couch.

I keep my little scissor zipper in the upper corner ~
so handy.
Lesson learned: like a chance meeting that brings you
a best friend, a silly little board has
become a valuable tool to me. 
Happy surprises are everywhere just waiting for us.

Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches


  1. just seeing the colours of the board is inspiration to the eyes see you are making great use of it

  2. That board looks so inspiring. I am not surprised that you brought it home, or that it wanted to come with you....
