Greetings all! Hope everyone is doing well today. Can you believe a week in October is gone already? It's almost time to get ready for the holidays. Well , in all honesty I've already been lurking at the new decorations.Psst...don't tell hubby ,he'd flip! Just a reminder that you have only until midnight tonight to sign up for the drawing for the Blackbird Designs needlebook.If you haven't already done so ,the instructions are on the post of Oct. 2nd. The pattern that inspired the needlebook is of course the Blackbird Designs' 'Be Kind and True'.This piece reminds me so much of my grandmother .I remember going to her house as a child.You could smell her lilacs ,irises, and roses while walking up the lane before you could even spot her house. Inside there would be milk glass, hobnail (sp?) and depression glass collections all around.There would be quilts that either she and my grandfather had made or ones that had been her mother's . She had a wonderful Rose of Sharon quilt that I'll never forget. I miss them both so much . Anyway , here is my version of the BBD pattern.It takes up residence in our family/game room.
Here is another past project.It is 'Round Robin' from The Trilogy and I finished it into a shaker box.
And the close up.
I keep my antique threads from American Star Company inside. Another find of dear old dad's.
The other day he gave me a couple of snowman tins. I love snowmen. I can hardly wait to see what he finds for me next.
Thank you all so much for your wonderful ,encouraging, and inspiring comments! They're appreciated more than you know! And to all my new followers and readers.. welcome aboard!
'Til next time,
