It sure is hard to capture the linen color -- in real life, it looks very different! I had a hard time choosing the fabric, but I think I'm pleased with what I chose. I just wish I could convey the color better.
Before anything else, I have to show you the lovely spool cabinet I spoiled myself with. It is for many special occasions -- Christmas, Mother's Day, anniversary, birthday, -- you name it. lol! I was so thrilled when it arrived!
Isn't it wonderful? This beauty was made by Richard Hyers. His work is wonderful! He also made that spool caddy I showed in an earlier post around Christmas. His website is here. Here is a closer up picture of the front -- sans my pincushion collection.
And here is a pic of the back -- Richard sent me this picture before he sent it out to me. Isn't it cool? My cabinet is made of cherry btw. One of my favorite woods.
I love it! Thanks again, Richard, for your lovely workmanship!
I also picked up some framing this past week and dropped off tons more to be framed. Here are the two I picked up. First, Ann Wheatley by Needlework Press
Here's a closeup of the frame.
And here's Ann Smith by the Scarlet Letter.
And the frame.
We spent part of the weekend rearranging samplers on the walls so my new A&Es would fit. I will have to show you the results sometime.
I rarely show pictures of the girl child on the blog anymore -- cause she's never home anymore. lol! She is graduating college this June -- unbelievable to me -- and starting life in the big world. It freaks me out to think of that. Anyway, I could only get a small picture of this poster, but here is a picture of a poster featuring the girl child -- another dance show.
I love how she has been featured for posters for at least a couple of dance shows. :D My beautiful girl.
So yeah, the boy child graduating high school in late June, the girl child graduating college early June. And a summer of equipping both kids for their new ventures. You think we're going to be busy this summer? lol!
Of course I can't let a blog post go without a pic of Mia. Here she is with her boy child lolling around on the bed.
Isn't she cute?
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I hope everyone who celebrates Mother's Day had a good one yesterday! Have a wonderful week!
