Short & Sweet ~


A Truly Heartfelt
T H A N K ~  Y O U
for all of the birthday wishes from friends & family ~

I spent the entire day playing working in my room !
really, sun up 'til sun down :))

only came up for a breath of air, some food and water and a few visits outside to Peter's workshop.
Along the way, between farmhouse & shop, a flock of beautiful, fat & welcoming Robins
were in the side-yard ~ listening intently for worms under their little feet.

a beautiful sight, and a sure sign of Good Things to come :)

American Robin
….I love the colors on this bird !

and speaking of colors I love ~
here is a sneak peek at the new rug in the sewing room:


floral, faded and vintage-looking ~ 

 this snap (below) better shows the true color depth:
~ kind of reminds one of an old hooked rug, no?


orange-reds/rusts,
...moss & sage greens
~ pale blue & robin's egg blue
all on a cream/beige background ~ perfect!


In between working on Hookinpunch© Frames in his workshop,
Peter is making me that fabulous shelf…
and he promised to hang it today ~ 
so I promise a full sewing room redux reveal
...a little later this evening :)


We are nervously awaiting the arrival of Minew's KITTENS!
I would have loved it if she had them on my bday, but I guess she (they) had other plans?
*sigh*
...seems like it's taking fur-ever .
>^..^<

I'll be in the shop today, 
come on by for a visit if you're out & about ~ bring a project and come create with me!

Keep warm & have a beautiful & Happy March the 1st!

* Blessed be *

I love the rug! I actually went on the Walmart website yesterday after reading your post, and that was the very rug that I guessed to be your choice!

Lori Ann Corelis said...

Your new rug is a beauty . . . and yes, it does have that old hooked rug look . . . like one that might have been at grandmother's house! I too worked yesterday on the studio! I'm having a hard time placing practical work space over pretty workspace! ;-) Best of luck to Minew!!
