I can't believe where the time has gone.; bad me I haven't posted since April. I have been busy preparing my projects for my trip to Boxwood & Berries in Spring Green, WI in October. Wisconsin in October - life is good. We've had a fun filled summer (baseball, trip to the Ozarks, swimming, and camping) not ready for summer to end. My favorite time of year is the Fall which it feels like today. My car said it was 59 degrees so I've opened up the windows. The humidity has finally left. I thought I'd share a quick glimpse of a sampler I am creating. I sprained my ankle about two weeks ago so I have had some good chair time...bless those who are on crutches for extended periods of time. Crutches do not move at my normal pace.
Hope everyone had a good summer; stay tuned for picture of my finished sampler not sure where I am going with it yet.....
This is a picture of my latest Prim Sister Club Design that is offered through Country Sampler www.sgcountrysampler.com. It is a needle roll that has three pieces of velvet on the flip side to hold your needles, buttons and other notions. I love the faded look; I don't do bright!
I don't know about you but I tend to have a needle roll in every unfinished project bag I have. If your interested in joining the club, please visit www.sgcountrysampler.com.
What a great week we are to get into the 70's....Spring has arrived....enjoy! Linda
This is my latest pattern that I just finished charting. I put it in one of my favorite frames from my growing stash. I use to collect wool but I think I might have moved on to frames; although I never pass up a good piece of unique wool. This sampler only has four colors but has the drab look I so love... it represents my county (Lancaster) and one of my favorite motifs (the deer). Enjoy the day and do a little stitching while watching the game. Please e-mail me if you would like to order this pattern. Linda
I've heard so much talk of the series Downton Abbey I thought I would take some time and see what all the fuss is about. I think I'm addicted. It has been a one week and I'm on Season 2 Episode 7. I calculate that I have watched over 15 hours of tv this week on my son's 7 inch Kindle. I'm trying to get caught up so I can share in the office talk on Monday mornings....If you haven't had a chance to watch this series I highly recommend it. Linda
Well it's close to New Year's so I will get in one last post before then. I participated in a Secret Swap with a couple of the girls I met at the Country Sampler in Spring Green, WI this fall. I was lucky enough to get my exchange from Merrily Mistele and very special lady. Her and her daughter sat next to me at the workshop and I was fortunate to have them take me under their wing on the very first day. I just have to show you what she made for me; she does beautiful work. This is a little punch needle Santa purse. I just love it. Thanks so much Merrily.....I hope we can do Christmas in July ...... Linda
I pretty much love everything primitive. As a child I would spend hours cutting up grandma's old flour sacks and turn them into some sort of creation. I love rug hooking, stitching, reading and whatever else catches my eye. Me and my husband live on an acerage in Nebraska and have a one son.
