Greetings all!~ I hope you all are going to have your themometers warmed up a little this week! We are due to 50-60 degree tmeps here in the Ozarks later this week. That will be considerably warmer than it has been here lately!
Yesterday I went and got my driver's license renewed. I don't know if this is a country wide thing or not, but here our license expires on our birthday the year they are due. I knew (all too well since it will be my 40th) that my birthday was coming up , so I trotted on down there. I was so afraid I wouldn't pass the eye exam because of all of the iritis trouble. I did pass, but barely! I now have two restrictions on my license. Glasses, that was a given, and an outside left mirror. I thought that last one was dumb, because that's a requirement for all vehicles anyhow. Oh well.
Remember last week when I posted the winnings from Peggy's drawing and I had gotten a little Shakespeare's Peddler scissor pocket kit? Well , I decided to stitch it up . Wow! Stitching on 40 count was a bit challenging for me! I love the way it worked up though! I didn't finish it off with a corner opening like the instructions said to do. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get my scissors out. The fabric that it is laying against is the fabric I used for the back. Just perfect I think. Thanks again dear Peggy! I will enjoy it for a long long time.
I started a new project. Well, actually I have started a few new projects. This one I started a couple of days ago. It is Quaker Alphabet Sampler from Rosewood Manor's Quakers and Quilts. I am stitching it all in one color using Currant from The Gentle Art. I am stitching it on 28 count Country French Linen in Wheat.
Well that's it for now friends. I am off to piece a little while on a baby quilt that I am giving as a gift.Thank you all for stopping by today!
'til next time,
don't be a stranger,
