A Loon of Another Color

First I want to welcome a new follower yea! I am at 20 please take time to visit some of them. This is the bread recipe ,I hope you can read this if not let me know and I will clear anything up. Since I am at a snails pace with my big rug I thought I would post some of my other finished rugs. This one is from a class I took with Bev Conway. She chose vibrant colors and I love them it was out side my color pallet so a nice stretch for me.
If you ever get a chance to take a class with her you should do it. She has a wonderful class on color.
I have had to go through some of my mothers things again. She passed away a little over a year and half ago. my step dad is moving and I am going over some things I didn't get to back when she passed away. No matter how old you are it is so hard to lose your mother.
I found this picture of her father 1918 he was in the first world war. Not sure where he went in the war, but I will say he had a small farm and he preferred to never leave that farm all the time I knew him. I guess there is no place like home.
I also found this deck of cards never opened. Not sure what I will do with them but to never have been opened is amazing.


I had to work on Sat so no yard sales. I have tomorrow off so I am off to my daughter's she has promised me a thrifty fix so I am all excited.
Thank you for your comments it is so exciting to see them. and to my followers old and new thank you, thank you.

I love the picture of your grandfather! There is so much we could learn from our grandparents if we would just ask--or if they were still around to tell us. Sorry about having to go through your mom's things. I'm sure you miss her greatly. Hugs!

I so appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. Had to jump over for a little visit to you! Enjoyed seeing the photo of your grandfather...And, that authors game is just a treasure.

I too love garage sales and thrift stores. I was lucky to score some great items this past weekend when I found a little time to go to some of the local sales. It is such fun, isn't it?
