Stitchin... What is it about folk art that speaks to us? I'm always drawn to the folky tulip ~ whether stitched or painted 100 years ago on an old blanket chest. Just can't help myself, anyone else suffer from this affliction? I remember an old friend who had not a single stem of anything planted in his yard. One day I asked him why not a few tulips, he replied they were too ugly! He's still my friend, my oldest in fact, I just didn't marry him:)
loving this stitch
tad bit nervous
about the assembly
but try I must
i'll do my best and
pooh the rest!
Collectin... A few more blues rescued from the barn, they cleaned up nicely. The oldest of this lot dates to 1858, amazing they survived the collapse.
Back in the day... Anyone remember these? Kind of a spice loaf cake with raisins and frosting. This ad was recently in our grocery flyer, I actually had to rub my eyes cause I thought I was hallucinating. Our local Star Market sold them in the 60's/70's, was such a treat back then. I'm sure my Mom thought it was a treat too ~ not having to bake LOL. As much as I love to bake, some days I know how she felt:)
Bloggin... My computer is on its' last leggies ~ email is fine, but while blog posting it freezes, crashes, it's just a PITA s.t.r.u.g.g.l.e. The French have a saying which I adore, sounds so romantic when they speak it, very universal and translates to " we're in the sh*ts ". Their slang sooooo accurately describes our computer these days:) I'll still be around, following along on my Google Reader, stitching and saving for a new computer... and posting less often cause it's just not awesome anymore.
Thanks for visiting today, was good of you to drop by. Next time we meet, it'll be at your place:)
