and I prefer old wood and rust. Patti knows this and that's exactly what she presented to me for my birthday. She really knows how to decorate in a primitive style and has an old hook on her door which I love. So she came to see my mess and brought this...
a fabulous rusty hay/bale hook. So I played for quite a while, hung it upside down over a door, and ended up with my rusty paint can on a post. She also gave me a sock darner in the same shape as my mom's, which I rarely see. Mom's is the top right and my gift is bottom right.
Thank you thank you thank you Patti! She such a great girl and could use your prayers once again.
No one commented that they have used the Alene fabric tape, so I will buy it, give it a try, and report.
Here's Eliza - I'll be starting the big bottom soon and there are satin stitches and lazy daisy in that area. Yes, that's a binder clip you see holding the excess linen. Quicker and safer than a safety pin.
And I have a perennial that was given to me by a friend who has passed, and I don't know the name. It's the brightest, clearest yellow. It makes new buds beneath the bloom and continues this way for a month. At night, they close.
That's all I got. I'll be back tonight with the winner of the kit. I have all the names entered and will wait till the last minute to scramble and draw. Just in case a hot flash disrupts my memory, I'm setting the timer.
