Peppermint Tulips and wonderful things...

Here is the next punch needle design
"Peppermint Tulips"
almost finished...
just need to fill in the rest of the background
then punch the border.

it will be finished today,
then i'll be working on:
"Farmer & Wife"
kind of companion punches to my
"A Plump Wife" cross stitch design
that Felicia is finishing up...



This sweet little face belongs to my Suzy,
who loves to burrow in my wools.
she looks like she's wearing a Babushka, doesn't she?
:)
this brown transfer ironstone pitcher
and victorian velvet covered sewing basket
where found on our trip the other day...
I love them both ~
along with this quilt,
which is a grandmother's garden design
(my favorite)...
it dates to about 1910 - 20
but upon closer inspection,
i saw that there is another whole EARLIER quilt underneath!!!
with calicos from the mid-late 1800's....
WOOHOO!!!

if you know me, then you know I love textiles of any sorts
and THIS kind of thing makes my heart beat just a little faster!

it will be warmer today,
and we'll be in the shop working on our projects,
planning changes, checking on the herb garden
and of course,
laughing & giggling like we always do!

hoping your day is full of smiles & wonderful things~


Blessings from the Farm...
Lori

Hi Lori, I had purchased a older quilt and was having a picnic. after the picnic I was looking at it and saw that there was another quilt underneath, I was so excited.....................the quilt was only tied together by red yarn so it was not hard to remove..............so for the price of one, I got two...........Hugs Mary
