Oh my, it is February.
I love Valentine's Day. I am a romantic at heart.
il bacio, the kiss.
I love this print,
I have it in my living room.
the expression on the little girls face on the right is priceless.
The photographer is anonymous,
but it looks to be taken in the 20's or 30's.
And then I love my patriotic heart doily
which I found a few years back on Ebay.
The daughter of the woman who made it thanked me
because her mother made a little cash on the side with her crocheting hobby. I fell in love with the doily
because I have my front room decorated
in red, white and blue, and this little item
was so different from other doilies.
I have thought maybe to tea dye it, but still debating.
I promised to show the progress of my hex blanket.
If there is a good side to sitting at the bedside of someone
who is ill,
then it would be keeping oneself busy with
playing with some yarn
and silently counting stitches.
Putting hexes together by the join-as-you-go method
has got to be the best discovery since sliced bread, lol.
Now I mentioned to Kate over at The Garden Bell
(link on sideboard) that I made a stop at Walmart
and some yarn fell in my buggy.
I now have more than plenty to give my blanket
more variety in color. You folks really need to go visit Kate.
Check out her yarn dying and go back in her archives and have look at the beautiful things she has hooked up with her
hand dyed yarns. She is amazing!
I need to mention that during all this running
to and from Cleveland,
during all the hub bub of running around like
a chicken with my head cut off,
being beside myself with tying up loose ends
and from ripping the hair from my head....
I was nominated by 2 lovely followers and given
I intend to address the necessary things one does when
one is so graced, that is, when I have more time to do that.
I have wanted to do another post on Collections,
and the last pic on this post shows you one of my very favorite
collections of miniature hard back books.
More to come on that one.......
till then keep the faith, hang tight
and have a nice evening.
