I went peddler's mall shopping yesterday. Yep that's right...AGAIN! I guess something inside my head says "go while you can because soon you'll be in N.J. working and won't see the light of day for a while". So go I must!
The cup is so old that the silver has worn away, leaving the copper exposed underneath.
I love the detail on the this cup....
The lace is a bugger to iron but isn't it beautiful?
The weekend was filled with stitching and crafting. I don't have a picture of the stitching part though. It seems the more I stitch, the more I rip. I'm not nearly as upset as I should be though. Maybe it's because I'm stitching on the Ten Commandments?? I had to rip an entire row out but now I'm almost done with the words and can concentrate on the border.
Here's the crafting part of the weekend....
I used some red wool that came from a sweater I found at the thrift store and also some that Shirlee sent me some time ago. I used plain old string to make the sections. I stuffed the bottom with crushed walnut shells to give it some weight and fiber fill on top. I haven't sewn the top on yet.
I am starting to feel the end of March creeping up on me. I need to start gathering what we will need to pack for the outage this Spring. I am always worried that when we get there I will have forgotten something. I have to pack enough clothes for work and also "civilian" clothes for when we visit family while up north. It's all those little things that make living in a hotel for so long easier that I really don't want to forget.
Thank you all for the kind comments you have left. I am so glad you all found the links provided in my last post helpful. Now I expect to see lots of pin cushion creating out there! :o)
Looks like we might get snow here in southern Kentucky! I'm not all that excited about it but I know some will be pleased.
Thanks for dropping by!
