Went for a ride~~

Fought with myself this morning on whether or not to take a ride out to a shop I've been wanting to go to. Finally talked myself into and I'm so happy I did despite the traffic and detour I had to go through..  I had heard a lot about this store called Thymes Remembered. It is in New Oxford, Pa.  I stopped on the way at another little shop. Thought I'd stop back there when I was done, but decided not too. I had spent my limit at Thymes Remembered. The girls there were extremely  helpful and so sweet. I'm looking forward to heading back again soon! I asked if I could take a couple pictures, and they said sure!  I came home with a couple yards of homespun. Have been wanting to make some curtains. Also treated myself to a wooden bird, and some acorns that I put in a bowl  with the potpourri that I bought at Colonial Day.  I almost bought the acorns at Colonial Day but passed, and then Linda said they had them at Thymes Remembered. So I picked some up.  I think I'll be heading back real soon to this store. They have some Heirloom Weavers blankets and throws. I've been wanting one for my bed for quite some time.  I'm glad I'm taking my time thinking about it. I want to make sure. So I have a week LOL!!


Also picked up some of these little pumpkins.  I have some more potpourri, and will put a little in the bowl.

I realized I never did share with you what I got at Colonial Days either.  These pillows below were sewn by Tanya Wishard. She is one of the girls in our group.  At the end of the show, I was doing my own shopping :).

Here is a small pincushion and tiny pillow. The bigger of the two is stuffed with crushed walnut shells. It's so sweet. Her work is so amazing!!  In return for these items, I will be making her a cross stitch piece that she said she liked.  Will get that to her soon...

I also bought this sheep at Colonial Day. It is by Kathy Maker from  Primitive Homespuns .  I like to buy something from her booth every year.  The pincushion was a gift from my friend Beth. I love it!

And I also bought this redware flower pot from Becky Mummert. I always like to get something from her also.

Tonight I've been working on a cross stitch piece for the retreat weekend.  I was having so much fun today, that I got a late start on it.  But it's coming along. I hope to share what little progress I have tomorrow evening. I have a lunch/dinner date with 2 girlfriends tomorrow afternoon. 

And speaking of the group on line, Kelley the group leader suggested a wool shower. If you wanted to sign up, whoever's name was picked, everyone would send the winner some wool. Well, I thought that was a good way to get rid of a little bit. HA, I won. Backfired on me LOL.  Anyway, I have been having so much fun receiving a shower of packages in the mail.  I wanted to keep them all together so I can make something nice out of them. Here is a shot of them!  The girls were so generous!!  Thank you all!

I took some time yeseterday to add a few things to my Etsy shop. The link is on the sidebar if you are interested. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me.

Sure hope you all got a chance to be outside today. The weather was so lovely!

That shop looks like it would be a shopaholics dream. And how lucky to win all that wool.

That looks like a great shop Kathy. So much fun to pick and poke in shops like that and always find treasures. Loves the pillows and pin cushion.

Oh man! That Thymes Remembered looks like such a fun place! I did the mapquest thing and learned it's 3hrs. 15 min. away from me... so that will have to wait! LOL! I really like that black/brown pincushion that's filled with the walnut shells... and the sheep from Primitive Homespun is sooooo nice! Looks like you've got an eye for beautiful stuff! :-) Enjoy all the wool from the shower! Looks like it all can get hooked into one rug? Have a beautiful Sunday! :-)
