A LITTLE MAT


 
HERE'S A LITTLE HOOKED MAT I WHIPPED UP
YESTERDAY TO COVER OUR LAND LINE PHONE JACK.
I HAD A SAMPLER COVERING IT BUT WANTED A LITTLE
DIFFERENT LOOK.  I HAD SEEN ONE SIMILAR WITH
1887 ON IT IN A PIC OF A HOME BUT CAN'T REMEMBER
WHERE NOW.  ANYWAY, I WANTED SOMETHING
SIMPLE AND SMALL SO THIS FIT THE BILL.
IT MEASURES JUST SHORT OF 8" X 9" AND
IS THE YEAR WE MOVED INTO THIS HOUSE
MINUS A HUNDRED YEARS.
THE COLORS ARE BLACK, BROWN AND A
NEUTRAL BACKGROUND PLAID WITH A BIT
OF A GREEN HUE TO IT.

SUNNY BUT COLD HERE.  SUPPOSED TO BE IN
THE HIGH TWENTIES TODAY BUT -2 TONIGHT.
FORTIES BY NEXT WEEKEND THO SO THAT WILL
TAKE THE SNOW DOWN.  SPRING IS
GETTING CLOSER BUT I AM STILL ENJOYING
WINTER. WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL DAY.

UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

A LITTLE SPRING IN MY STEP....


 
STILL VERY MUCH WINTER HERE AND
IT WILL BE FOR A FEW WEEKS YET.
I'VE BROUGHT OUT A FEW SIMPLE
THINGS TO BRING IN A LITTLE SPRING.
ABOVE ARE SOME WAX EGGS I MADE
LAST YEAR. THEY ARE PLASTIC
EGGS COVERED IN PAPER AND THEN
DIPPED IN WAX AND SPICES.
 
 
SMALL BLACK BUNNY MADE BY
JACKIE SCHMIDT.

 
LITTLE BUNNY IS ONE OF MY DESIGNS.

 
LOOKING OUT OUR DINING ROOM WINDOW
ACROSS THE FRONT YARD. WE HAVE LIGHT
SNOW FLURRIES TODAY.  I DON'T MIND.
I HAVE PLENTY TO DO INSIDE.
 
I HOPE YOU FEEL A LITTLE LIKE SPRING TODAY,
EVEN IF IT'S NOT!
UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

OH MY STARS!

 
MY QUILT THAT IS...
I WAS ABLE TO GET IT HAND BASTED
YESTERDAY AND STARTED QUILTING IT
LAST NIGHT. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT
THOUGHT I SHOULD DO THE FAN PATTERN
INSTEAD OF DIAGONAL LINES...
THAT IS WHAT I'M DOING.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT.
ALTHOUGH I DON'T MIND DOING THE LINES
AND IT PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN
QUICKER I DO LOVE THE FAN THE MOST
AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THE
PERFECT CHOICE FOR MY STAR QUILT.

 
I CHOSE THIS LARGE BLACK AND TAN CHECK
HOMESPUN FOR THE BACK OF MY QUILT.
I'M USING TAN QUILTING THREAD BY YLI.
 
DON'T LOOK FOR THE FINISH ANY TIME SOON.
IT WILL TAKE ME A FEW WEEKS AND I'LL
BE DOING SOME OTHER THINGS HERE
AND THERE AT THE SAME TIME.
 
WISHING YOU ALL A LOVELY DAY.
FOR THOSE EXPECTING MORE SNOW....BE SAFE!
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
