"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder
Welcome to my little corner of the virtual realm! Here you'll find my recently finished stitching projects and my many, many works in progress, as well as ramblings about recipes, seasonal canning endeavors, book reviews, and life in the country. So please, pour yourself a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and stay a spell....
I'm an obsessive stitcher with a passion for all things primitive and folksy. I also hold a Master's Degree in English Literature (which explains my love for books). When I'm not reading or stitching, I can most likely be found in the kitchen...especially during canning season.
In between canning and cleaning out the boys' closets to get them ready for school, somehow I've managed to finish another towel and a pillow tuck. I'm hoping to have items listed in my Etsy shoppe before the end of August...just in time to begin thinking about decorating for the Fall holidays! Of course I have plenty more projects lined up and waiting.
I just love how this little pillow tuck turned out:
And I have three more designs from the same pattern to add to it! The pattern collection is entitled "Pumpkins 'A Plenty II" and was designed by Sandra Sullivan of Homespun Elegance. (I just love her designs!)
And here's my latest towel....I thought the buttons made for a cute addition:
Hopefully I'll get more stitching done this week but my next project is canning dill pickles later this week. I'll be sure post some pics and of course, the recipe as well.
