Hi there sweet friends, nice of you to stop by!

Prim and folkart needlework designs of drab reds, browns, golds and greens are what I fancy.

Let's share stitchin, sewin, nestin, cookin, collectin, prims, critters and a lovin' mishmash of sweet life...

... when you can use this very old wooden tri-fold drying rack from yesterday's estate auction. 
This captures memories of departed friends who were collectors.
I'm not sure if Gene and Betty displayed it in their home,
but would like to think they'd approve...
This bare wall and dark stairway landing sorely needed something
and this prim architectural element fits the tall space quite nicely.
So I pinned up some old ditties from my finish pile,
am thinkin a lovely place to hang some ornies too!  
Brought home several brass buckets to add to our collection,
will find something to do with them...

My heartfelt thanks to each of you for your kind comments on my Sparrow's Song finish.  Kinship and encouragement keeps us stitchers advancing our skills don't ya know! 

Hope you're all having a great weekend, thanks ever so much for stopping by!

Tootles, Sue
