I have been getting my spring and Easter things out.
In my next life I would like to live here. Such a sweet painting I picked up at some sale.
Every year we blow out eggs and Sweet B colors them.
I have tried to save as many as I can over the years. Makes a sweet decoration.
I finally got to take my close friend out for lunch for her birthday that was last month. After we headed to the local thrift store.
I found this it is for sewing but I am going to use it for my rug hooking. Good find for 3.00.
I also found this small green pottery bowl. Just the right size for compound butter that I make to go with bread when I bake. .50
And this hand stitched sweet candle mat. again .50 I had to rescue it! it is sitting on my coffee table with a battery operated candle.
Sat I finally got to my guild meeting. I got up early and made Madeleines to take with me.
It was indigo dying (Shebori) funny thing is when I got home I figured out this was not my piece. but still nice and fun class.
I have wanted one of the covers for my frame like everyone has but since I am on a self imposed buying freeze I pulled out what I had for fabric....
And I made myself one from materials I had here. I am trying very hard not to purchase any rug hooking supplies for at least 6 months. I am a hoarder when it comes to rug hooking, I have lots of books and ideas I have wanted to hook but if I see something I like, I buy it! I will never live long enough to use up the wool and linen I already have.
Nice weekend we were able to do a bit of yard work where the snow has receded. I have plants starting to pop up ahhh spring I knew you would come. Except we have snow in the forecast for tomorrow! not much but still snow.
Have a great week everyone!
