SOME STITCHING

 
AS PROMISED HERE ARE THE X~STITCH PIECES
I'VE BEEN WORKING ON LATELY.
ABOVE IS PHEBE'S FOREST BY THE CITY STITCHER.
I CHANGED IT A LITTLE TO SUIT MYSELF.
I REALLY ENJOYED STITCHING THIS ONE.
IT'S A BIT DARKER IN PERSON.
I STITCHED IT ON CREEK BED BROWN LINEN.

 
I'M CURRENTLY WORKING ON THIS LARGER SAMPLER
DESIGN BY STACY NASH CALLED CHRISTMAS AT
HOLLYBERRY FARM. AGAIN, I'M CHANGING IT A BIT
TO SUIT MYSELF. ALTHOUGH THE BORDER IS TIME
CONSUMING I DO LOVE IT. I'M STITCHING ON TIN ROOF
LINEN WHICH IS NOT WHAT STACY CALLED FOR
BUT I LIKE HOW IT'S COMING OUT. I WANTED TO STITCH
THIS UP FOR LAST CHRISTMAS BUT DIDN'T GET TO IT
SO THIS YEAR I WAS DETERMINED TO HAVE IT DONE!

 
WELL, THIS IS WHAT WE GOT THE PAST TWO DAYS.
OVER A FOOT OF NEW FALLEN SNOW.
WE HAD GRASS SHOWING AND OUR SNOW WAS
FINALLY GOING.  WE GOT SIX INCHES A FEW DAYS
BEFORE THIS.  I THINK WE WILL STILL HAVE SNOW
ON THE GROUND IN MAY. WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING
ABOUT IT SO I WILL KEEP BUSY WITH MY
HOBBIES AND BE THANKFUL FOR THE PRECIPITATION,
HOWEVER IT COMES.
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

NEW ANTIQUE GOODS

 
YESTERDAY I MET MY FRIENDS TINA,  JUDY
AND JUDY'S HUBBY AT AN ANTIQUES SHOW IN
WI.  WE HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME AND I CAME
HOME WITH A FEW EARLY GOODS.
ABOVE ARE A SMALL BROWN CLOTH
COVERED SCHOOL BOOK,
SMALL TREEN PLATE AND SMALL TREEN BOWL.

 
INSIDE THE SCHOOL BOOK


 
AND THIS GREAT ANTIQUE TIN LANTERN.

 
LOVE THE TOP.  IT'S A SHORTER CONE SHAPE ON
TOP AND THAT IS WHAT DREW ME TO IT.

 
OK, LOVE~LOVE THIS OLD BROWN PAINTED TABLE.
I WAS WITH MY FRIEND TINA A COUPLE OF YEARS
AGO WHEN SHE BOUGHT IT AND TOLD HER THEN
IF SHE SHOULD EVER WANT TO PART WITH IT TO
PUT ME AT THE TOP OF THE LIST!  WELL, LUCKY
ME SHE DECIDED SHE COULD PART WITH IT SO
I BROUGHT IT HOME TOO!!

 
TOP OF THE TABLE.  YUMMY BROWN!
 
 
THIS IS AN ARRANGEMENT ON MY KITCHEN
COUNTER.  I PLACED THE PLATE IN A TOTE
AND THE BOWL BESIDE IT. THE CROCKS ARE
IN A TOOL BOX INSERT I TIPPED TO THE SIDE.
IT'S RESTING ON AN ANTIQUE PRAYER BENCH.


 
I HUNG THE LANTERN IN THE BACK ENTRY
BUT NOT SURE IT WILL STAY HERE.

 
THE BROWN COVERED BOOK IS PAIRED
WITH ANOTHER ANTIQUE CLOTH COVERED
BOOK I HAD IN A TAN PRINT.
 
 
I WANTED TO SHARE THE TWO GREAT
ANTIQUE MORTARS I PURCHASED IN THE PAST
COUPLE OF MONTHS ONLINE.  THEY ARE BIG ONES
AT 7~1/2" TALL.  LOVE THEM!
 
THAT'S IT FOR NOW.  I'LL SHARE
MY CROSS STITCHING WITH YOU SOME
TIME THIS WEEK.  I WANTED TO GET A BIT
MORE DONE ON THE STACY NASH ONE I'M
DOING NOW BEFORE I SHARE. 
 
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
