I love saturdays!!
I love saturday mornings!!!
got up early this a.m. ~ around 6:30...
came down & lit the kettle for my daily cup of tea (ok, more like cups of tea)
the farmhouse was quiet & still,
& I could hear the sheep & the donkeys waking up in the barn
...as I stepped on the front porch to greet the sun.
a perfect moment to stitch a little before the chores begin!
I'm calling the pattern
"The Blue and The Grey"
in my mind, i'm envisioning the year to be 1863 ~
...the Civil War is upon our Nation and families are divided by their beliefs.
...two sisters from the same family have fallen in love with local boys, but their beaus are on opposing sides of the Situation of the States...
one is in favor of the Union, the other...the Confederacy.
both sisters are torn over their love for each other, and for their sweethearts.
they have decided to stitch remembrance pieces for their soldiers to carry in their satchels on the battlefields ~ hoping that each will return to them unharmed ~
one is stitched with grey thread, the other with blue ~ symbolizing the colors of the War...
this little table is a favorite spot of mine to sit & sip tea while I work.
that will be used to fill the finished stitchery projects ~
and my other butter churn, below holds another lamp near my stitching chair...
Iggy hasn't even asked for breakfast yet!!
