By that I mean a slump – don’t really know which way to turn in my creative thoughts.
I was working on punch needle and love doing that so much that I needed to STOP! It is very addictive and hazardous to your housework!
I was fortunate enough though to sell the 4 punch needle projects that I did and I so thank the ladies who purchased them. Three I sold on the internet and one sold at the shop I took it to….the very next day.
So that’s the end of my creativity!
I did get a wholesale order for some of my Traditional Penny Rugs so that will be keeping me busy for quite awhile now.
I got the Osnaburg dyed and hung out to dry – I love when I don’t have to hang it in the basement or put it in the dryer – such a better Primitive look.
I got the pennies cut for two of the diamond shape rugs – I counted up how many pennies I need to cut for all these rugs and it totaled 774 and I cut them by hand – I don’t want to use one of those machines that gets them perfectly round, as it is I think I do a pretty good job of getting them round just by hand.
Now mind you these are just ‘laid’ on the fabric – nothing is stitched so the pennies will not look like they are in place – I do that when I start pinning them together.
All pennies have been cut for all of the ones she ordered so I certainly have been keeping busy.
But I like this kind of ‘busy’.
Last Wednesday we had our church Spring Luncheon.
The ladies guild do such a great job of every event they put on – this one was no different…very well done.
There were tables reserved for the elderly and handicapped that attend all our functions and there was a guild lady assigned to each of those tables.
The week before last we had dinner with Darren and MaryAnn for Aidan’s school.
A portion of the bill went to the school for proceeds from that evening.
So we met them there and had a very enjoyable time.
Aidan saw lots of his school buddies – and gal buddies so he had a constant smile on his face.
Have you ever received something from someone you never met or knew?
Well a friend of mine knew of a lady who wanted to get rid of some wool so she told her about me – the lady messaged me and said I could have the wool for just the cost of shipping. I was a bit skeptical but said yes.
Well the wool arrived….it was mostly ‘Black’ and some dark Reds – my colors.
The best part was I was NEEDING Black for my penny runners and didn’t want to order any. I was saved by this angel !!!
Just look at all that Black!
The Black pieces are huge – not sure how much is there but at least 3 yards in each bundle. And the strips (which are large stacks) are all ready sized to run through the wool cutter for rug hooking.
Thank you Joanne from Florida.
That’s about it for this week – my posts are becoming fewer and far between.
Not a lot of exciting things going on I guess.
But I won’t give up blogging – and I hope you all won’t either.
I love this way of sharing way more than FB!
Blessings to all
