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!
