Nice Steady pace..........
This is the time of year I just love. The yard is being maintained, the garden has been planted (by Mom), things are lush and green and you can take the time to really enjoy things. I have been "puttering" taking photos of things, finishing up projects, starting new ones, coming up with ideas for new patterns. I swear, my brain is in overdrive!
I actually drew out a set of 6 chair cushion designs that I will be getting out soon. They are super primitive and I can't wait to start hooking them up.
The first one is a gorgeous owl my father bought for my mother a few years ago. He has a nice spot on the porch!! He is made of cement and is very heavy, but when my mother was moving here from Florida and wondered if she should keep him. I told her he's way to0 special not to keep.
Next is my floral heart punch needle pattern I just finished punching. The next photo is the same pattern that I am hooking. I should have that done by the end of the week, but, hubby is heading home this week for R&R, so you just never know.
The last photo is just a nice picture I snapped and "aged". My mother was sewing out on the porch and had her pin cushion next to the beeskep. The best pictures are the ones that are not staged. I just love to go outside and snap away.
So, keep watching because I've got lots of pictures and ideas to come in the next few weeks.
Until next time....
- Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
