Can Spring be here finally?
Well the March winds sure have arrived.
When I left my mom's yesterday morn,
the waves were at least 5 feet or more
crashing over the break wall on Lake Huron.
Thursday night I found out you could see
the Northern lights as far as 2 miles
south of my mom's.
Unfortunately Friday night the clouds
moved in so I could not see them.
A day late and a dollar short as they say.
The February winds
forced me to leave my back room for work.
I move my desk to the living room
and we closed off that room for now.
While sitting there during the day now,
I noticed the sun come out after many
cloudy and/or snowy days.
Now don't get me wrong.
I so love seeing the sun in the Winter.
It males me more happy,
however I digress it was shining right
on my delicate early sampler.
Although I do not know how old this is,
it was stitched on a silky linen
which was often the linen choice of
early samplers from the 1800's.
Well after I saw this...
the sampler had to be moved.
Move it I did.
Since this is the sampler I use for most of
my stitching pillows, I needed to save it
from the scorching sun which was fading it out.
Will show you later where it was moved.
In other news,
Windy Meadows Farm blog
asked me if the wool for my rug was cut.
I purchase wool in various sizes.
While most rug hookers have a cutter
to cut their wool into strips,
I hand cut mine.
When Bob and I vended antique shows,
I always purchased my wool from a lady
who sold her wool at the show.
She was from Missouri and I wish I new her name.
You see here in Michigan where I live,
not many wool stores to be found.
Those that do only sell solids.
Am running out of my stash now.
Need to find some soon.
On my way up to my mom's,
I visited my two fav antique friends shops.
I bought something from each.
Will show you in another post.
Tundra was so excited to see me back.
Bob said he did not even sleep in the bed
like he does when we are both here.
He is a bed hog. LOL
Well we are off to work the stores.
I also have to check in some Summer inventory
that arrived on Friday.
On The Move Blessings To All!
