It Was The Day After Christmas
Yep, I got up this morning, while my husband was cooking breakfast, and started putting every thing away and cleaning and it was nice having him home because we got the tree down and out in the shed all before 10:00 AM
I moved furniture back to it's places and now peace reigns. We had a lovely Christmas and I did really think this year, I might be able to just let things be but I am not. I am ready to move on. Knowing that we have a wedding here May 18th, 2013 has all of my attention. My husband is planting flower seeds and we have snap dragons coming up nicely. The seed catalogs came in the mail and I turned to the flower seed sections because her colors with be magenta, white and purple.
Anyway, I finished rugs and I wanted to show you the picture of the rug I made for Meg.
Dotty Chase, who is an American Folk Artist. I love her art so much. It just speaks to me and the way I like things to look. She reminds me a lot of Warren Kimble. who I like a lot too.
I finished binding the other rugs I did earlier in the year. I think I got over my fear of binding rugs. You know with my new glasses I feel like a new woman. I feel like I can do anything again. I didn't realize how depressed I had become. So anyway I feel like dancing again and singing. Not a single headache now for almost a month.
Okay back to rugs.
I finally finished the crow and pumpkin rug.
I am going to make this as a quilt someday. I am getting the craving to do some quilting again. Now that I can see.
My next rug is the one that I had my daughter copy the chickens from a pot holder I had. Now I have some serious love issues going on with this chicken rug. I put it down briefly in front of the wood stove when we had people here for Christmas Eve. Only briefly. After everyone left I picked it up and put it on a bench I have. So it will be there a while until I can find somewhere that it will be safe. I am feeling a bit like Gollum and "His precious." Over this one.
Thanks for stopping by today. My husband got a few phone book size programming books for Christmas so I hang out with him on the computer or sew when he is on the computer and I thought it would be nice to do a post.
It has been a lovely week so far.
