Sneak Peek

Good morning dear friends.

H A P P Y  2 0 1 7

Let's hope this year will be a good one for all!

As I sat and reflected on what I had accomplished
last year, I realized I had purchased many patterns
that well...never came to fruition.

This year I resolve to try and do some of these projects.

At least one major last minute project
 was finished last year.

The back room.
We are just waiting for the sectional to arrive now.
I am so excited to show off this new/old room,
but for now just a few sneak peeks.

I am feverishly working on some new new Valentine projects
for this new look to go with some old ones.

Tobacco cloth curtains on the windows.
These were originally hanging in my front room,
however they kept curling up and I did not like the look.
They look so much better here with the one end up.

A sweet child's quilt. Brown ring.
Not sure of this pattern, so please help if you know it.

Well worn old quilts.

A few crocks. Love my crocks!

If I was on that tv show Love it or List It...
it would be LOVE IT!!!
Bob says he NEVER wants to sell.

More on our wonderful new/old space once we have the
final piece in. Hopefully in a few weeks.

Today I am off to purchase some embroidery floss
 colors that I don't have.
You ask why?

I purchased this "Sepia Sampler"
pattern from Lori at Notforgotten Farm.

I wanted to create this for our new space,
so I have to get my butt moving now.
Off to the craft store and then having lunch with Michele.
Next week she has a dr. appt. for a check up on her leg.
Hopefully they can start therapy soon.

No laying around for me today,
unlike my fur babies.

What are your plans today?

Sneak Peek Blessings To All!


  1. I love your little sneak peeks today and looking forward to more photos of the completed back room when it is all ready! Today, I took down my poor Christmas tree that had dried out terribly. Everything else is put away and it is off and running in 2017!!

  2. Happy new year! It all looks wonderful!

  3. Can't wait to see the finished space, Janet! The tobacco curtains do look lovely with the corner pulled up! Happy new year!

  4. Lovin' what I'm seein' so far!! And love the sepia sampler pattern...can't wait to see that when you have it stitched!! Your fur babies are so sweet snuggled together like that.... My new little demon kitty takes great delight in terrorizing the "established" fur residents here.... :o( Hoping that changes soon. (Poor Snow Dog!!) Smiles & New Year Hugs ~ Robin

  5. Today I am still in-decorating...then it's on to re-decorating with all that was put away for Christmas. Sure hope to find a bit of hooking time.
    Happy New Year!

  6. Your collection of crocks are lovely
    I think I'd like to try some tobacco panel's
    Looking forward to seeing your finished sampler
