Hiya! Thanks again for your kindness regarding my sister. She got a call today to set up home health checks, because they feel she will have another episode within 30 days. Now we are more concerned than before.
I wanted to show you what I found online at Fanatic's Country Attic. Primitive gourd spoons and bowls. Love them. Be sure to click on My Spirit of Seven in her sidebar to see her rescued pets.
With or without dried beans. Those are dried turnips that come with the spoons. I restrung the gourds to hang lower.
As for stitching, this damn bird has been a real chameleon. He's been rust and gold and beige and pink and I haven't been pleased with any.
It's a small sampler and this guy seems to be where the eye focuses. I don't want it to be gaudy, yet that's what I see.
There are no other colors that appeal to me with the blue, so 928 was substituted for 407 and I am using the 950 as charted. Instead of 2 shades of blue and 2 shades of pink, he will be 3 blues and 1 pink. I think I can live with this.
I'll be really ticked and embarrassed if I remove that third blue and put the charted pink back. Any bets? As I look at the photos here....hmmm. The other motifs are bright but small and I like them. Maybe it's the bird's pose that's bugging me but something is. He's not the only thing. One more intense flash at the wrong time and there will be a wicked rant post of all the minor yet annoying nuisances that have really chapped my hide in this last week of 2013.
Which means it's the last weekend of 2013 already. Enjoy it ~ stay safe.
Thanks for visiting.
