The calendar on the wall is shouting at me "Hey! Have you noticed it's MID September already?!!" Yes, yes my dear calendar. I needed some down time this past few weeks so I chose to ignore you.
A death in the family, a thyroid gone wacky, a root canal, an offer on my Mom's house, amongst the few things that have contributed to a block of time that I have to admit I'm rather glad that it has passed quickly.
This past week I needed to touch my wool again. While out in my studio getting reacquainted with things I suddenly had the urge to change some things around. So I swapped out the old metal bed for this cute little antique curly maple bed that was hanging out in the guest bedroom in the house. The old ladder with blue milk paint was destined for a garage sale but I rescued it from the garage and propped it next to the bed. I started to feel like my old self again after puttering around this way for a few hours.
Just wanted to show you the arrangement I made for Dave's brother's funeral. I had this old rusty shot-gun milk pail in the basement. Dave and I fought an army of mosquitos to pick some wild tansy and dried weeds in the ditches near here. I added a few silk fall flowers and ribbons. Everyone said how Larry would have loved it. He was a great outdoorsman and loved the wild and the woods.
I'm getting a collection of rugs to roll up and display in the studio. I love displaying them this way. Do you?
I'm glad to be back pulling loops and visiting with you all here again. Thank-you again for all your kind emails, prayers, and concerns for our family. Indeed it is an honor to have so many friends here in blogland.
