What a beautiful day again! When the sun's shining it's great to be outside, which is where I'll be asap! But just had to pop in and say hello and play catch up. The kids are still off school on their Easter holidays until Thurs. and we've been out and about enjoying ourselves.
As a result I've put some ideas on the back burner for a time but here's some of what I've been up to with my little needle and thread.
So pleased to finish another of the Buttermilk Basin patterns and I think I'll do another one the frame them and get them on display.
I made another prairie doll and designed the apron she's wearing.
The fabrics of the doll and her apron have been coffee stained but don't seem to show up as dark as they really are.
The other little job I did was with a hammer and a couple of nails. My DH came home and saw the hammer on the counter and said, 'Oh no! - what have you been doing?' but this time I didn't knock off a lot of plaster when I hammered in the nails!lol!
I have had these plates for ages and wanted them either side of the kitchen window.Now please don't be shocked at the very bare look of my kitchen window. My problem is I just cannot make up my mind as to which kind of window dressing I should go for! So I'm still searching for ideas...
I had to wait until evening to take a pic of them both up as the light was too strong earlier.
Anyway this is a bit better...Today is another special day in our home as our firstborn, Caralyn is 11 today!! She's getting to that self-conscious stage and doesn't like having her photo taken so this is one from last year that she likes of herself!!Happy birthday, Caralyn - we all love you so much!
Hopefully, I'll get some time to post again later in the week if I have any more done!
Take care until then and thanks so much for visiting! I love to hear from you all!
