On Friday, I met up with Tanya and we went to Family Heirloom Weavers in Red Lion, Pa. I was talking about getting a woven blanket for my bed. Ended up getting one and then a few other things :). Tanya is a good helper in shopping! Couldn't wait to put it on the bed. Of course I have a lot to do to the room, and it's a bit embarrassing to show how there is nothing in there, but wanted to show the blanket. I love it! And I bought some fabric for curtains. Just draped it over the window, still need to figure out what style I want to make, so I'll wait till it "speaks" to me... I also bought a new bedskirt in black. Haven't tried it yet, and not sure if it will be too much or not. Again, we'll see. I'm not a decorator, so it will take a lot of work on my part. I'm always asking people for their opinions. Always second guessing myself. So I hope things come together.
Thank you Tanya for a great day!! Hope to see you soon!
Here is the table topper I bought too. Finished the acorn stitchery sampler last Thursday at the hook in. Still need to finish it into a mat. The tree on top of it was a gift from Genny as an early Birthday gift. It has acorns and leaves on it. She was quite surprised to see me working on the piece I was doing. Great coincidence!
Here is Joan on the left talking with a friend. And then I'm just going to share the photos of the day.
And then more shots of others.
And this is what was staring at me the whole time I was sitting trying to hook! The thing is massive...
Thank you Joan for a Wonderful day!!! I hope you rest up. And again, Happy Birthday!!!
Here is the rug I had worked on Saturday to draw up to take with me. I did hook some, just never got a shot of it. Why do I not take one of my own??? I'll work more on it tomorrow and will take one then to share with you. This was inspired by the wooden bird I bought a week or so ago. I have a color plan in mind.. We will see how it turns out.
