1827 Mary Ann Selenah Mott Sampler
Winter 2009 Sampler& Antique Needlework Quarterly
I just put the last stitch in Mary Ann, and then I had to rough her up a bit with some distressing. In my last post, I mentioned that it was brought to my attention that she would look good with my collection of salt-glazed pottery. I was asked by JoAnn what that is. It would be hard for me to describe, so here is an example. I've also been working on Ann Rayner. It's too gloomy here today for me to get a good photo, so I'll try to post again in a day or so. That Ann is one incredible sampler despite the pinhead people.
The last couple of weeks have been really busy. I have a part-time job doing accounting for a small dealership. I've had visions of W-2's, 10-99's, quarterly, and yearly taxes dancing in my head. I haven't had time to read many blogs lately, but now that taxes are done, I hope to get caught up. Hopefully, I can find time to do some painting on my needlework accessories, too.
I also want to comment on the fact that many of you left comments on my last post bordering on hostility and sarcasm because I was outside in short sleeves. Well, all I can say is after I had to endure several months of plus 100 temps, you should be ashamed of yourselves. In case you can't tell, I'm only teasing. I remember all too well what winters are like in other places. I hate the cold, so I feel for those of you dealing with it.
Take a look at these faces. A big change is coming on Saturday, and their world is about to be turned upside down. Ruby and Scarlett are getting a baby Boston brother. He doesn't have a name yet. It looks like they are saying "Brother smother, we're not happy one bit, and we're sticking together". I'm betting they'll change their minds...
