Thank you so much for your lovely and kind comments regarding the loss of my Mother. You will never know how much you are appreciated! The past couple of weeks have been a big blur, but things are beginning to even out. We miss her terribly, but a calm is starting to come over us.
I am going back and forth to her condo and will have everything that I need to do finished by the end of the month. I have brought back a few lovely things--she had some pretty antiques, and I will get a mover to bring the rest. She would be so happy to see her things in my home.
I stitched the Prairie Schooler "A Prairie Year" for her many years ago. She wanted them individually framed and hung together--so that's how they are! I don't know if I will leave them like this and display them the same way....or make ornaments. Not sure--but they are a fun little collection of sweet stitching. The colors are so pretty, but they don't show up so well below because of a glare. I hurriedly took this bad photo and they are a little bit crooked, but you get the general idea! Cute!!
I brought home this beautiful lamp. Supposedly, it was one of the first electric lamps in her town. I have always loved it. I just plopped it down where another not-so-exciting lamp was in my house. I will have to put thought into where things finally stay! But I do love it.
Through all of this, I actually have a small finish to show, and will do that on my next post! It is rather small, but will be a precious little snowman ornament! I have already picked out the sweet fabric for finishing, so I will have to sit down and make myself complete it! I will pass the chart on, so stay tuned for a chance to stitch it for yourself!!
My birthday is next week...I will be 57 years old!!! I cannot believe that I am closer to 60 than 50!!! That sounds terrible!! hahaha! Now that I think about it, I have already been closer to 60 than 50 for the past year!! Where is my brain?!?!?! hahaha!
Thank you for stopping by and please come back soon!
