Lately the creativity bug has got me and my mind is racing with ideas so I thought it needed to calm down.  What to calm it?

Whatever you do, your creativity comes out to play! You change the recipes, didn't you?
The Assisi embroidery is very decorative and the repetitive border will be completed before you know it, while you chat with your friends.
