I will be heading to Alabama next week to teach a workshop for the Wool Sisters---really looking forward to this as I have heard many good things about this group.
The house is just about finished being put back together. I have had fun putting things back together and hanging many rugs.
this is the stairwell down to the studio---since I took this picture I decorated the little spool stand with lots of fun sewing things
this is one the wall going up to the second floor
I like that it covers up some of the areas where I had to do some touch up painting---who would know!
A few weeks ago I posted a small picture of my mother that I found---I had the picture enlarged and changed to a sepia tone and printed on canvas---I framed it in an antique walnut frame---I just love that ir has a paisley background. I think that she was about 17 in this photograph...she was the youngest of 11 and unfortunately died when she was only 38 of Hodgkins lymphoma---my youngest daughter Sarah has my mother's name, Pauline, as her middle name. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there---enjoy your special day. I wish that I could be with my daughters on Sunday but I know that they will be thinking of me---or they better!!!! My daughter Chelsea will be going to see her Mother in Law on Sunday---fortunately for her they live closer than I do.
this is some of Chelsea's artwork I found when I was cleaning out the back storage area---not sure what those toys are????
We had a huge storm last Sunday and our sump pump quit working without our knowing it so we had water in the basement---fortunately just in the storage area---spent many hours cleaning it up and washing wool that got wet.
This is my old dining room turned office / sitting room---the green chair is my Mother's Day gift---love how it goes with my rug.
Well gotta go enjoy my time at the lake---and do some hooking!
heading home tomorrow as i am running in race on Sunday for Mother's day---hoping for a new PR!
