I finally completed some cross stitching patterns !!!

Sleigh Bells is a pattern by Country Rustic Primitives-Jenny Hoffman....her patterns are so sweet & prim. The other pattern is Hanging Huswif Project by Lori Brechlin from Notforgotten Farm. They were fun to stitch and I can't wait to decorate with them.

Hi Friends !!!!

I have not posted anything this summer and I feel as though summer is over.....My month on June was spent recovering from a woman's thing, it knocked me off my feet, but I feel great now & will forget about that ! Time for me to get back to painting my houses and getting ready for our First Grand Child to arrive in October !!!! The dog is pounding the window & needs to go out...I better go !

Wool & Dye Works Shop !!!!

I have been struggling with my hooked rug, I needed some new wool,so drove to this Wonderful shop in Florence,Mass. One of the owners along with another shopper helped me sort thru dozens of different shades of green, some were over-dyed, they were all just beautiful. I spent a few hours there and it was so inspiring ! It was like being with your old best friends ! I can't wait to get started on my rug again !!!! If you are ever in the area stop in, you won't be disappointed !!!!

My Rug Hooking Project !

I finished my Heart Valentines hooked rug and hung it on the wall ! It was so much fun to get back into hooking ! A few years ago, I bought this pattern from Searsport Rug Hooking in Maine....this is my current project ..... it is called "Little Town" and is 16"x24". I am mixing thin strips for the small details & wide strips for the back grounds.

My latest project....


A few years ago , my daughter in law found this neat wood box in someone's garbage.....she knew I could do something with it ! I am painting it with a scene and will distress it when I am done . My husband made the breadboard top. It will be our coffee table, so I need to hurry up & get it done !!!
