Embroidery

For my grandmother. Her favorite pattern is white points on a red - polka dot. It's reminds me of hot teapot with mint tea. Red is like sunny summer, white is drops of fresh milk, dots are like bread crumbs on a tablecloth. Summer in the village is always hot, but water from the well is cool. Remember the Northern cold is coming to mind, heaps of snow, hills, bay, fjord, home...

It's finally time for the hoop that was hanging on the wall. And I'm change - I'm changing my yarn on cotton, and prefer thin needle ear better than crochet hook. The needle dives into the fabric folds. The northern images were springing to mind under the shadow of apple tree. Lines became stitches.
