Welcome! Thanks for coming for a visit today.
Since I last posted I found an inexpensive picture frame online like the one I showed you several posts ago that holds an embroidery piece my mom stitched. The frame I purchased came with an E. A. Abbey print of a woman knitting [Katrina Van Tassel from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow], and I am enjoying viewing it on my living room wall. I am planning to make an embroidery piece like my mom's to put in the frame. My track record for completed projects stands to be improved and the planning of this project is encouraging me in that direction!
I believe the frame is from the early 1900's Arts and Crafts Movement Period, as is the one above it. My Uncle George made the framed mirror piece in his high school shop class and gave it to my mom for her birthday. It had pride of place in all the homes my folks had as long as I can remember. I especially like the print of the sheep wandering down a country lane. I think my mom told me that she thought her brother had cut the print from a calendar.
The sky is the limit! I thought this view of the Red Maple tree across the driveway from the steps where the girls were sitting was so pretty and up lifting!
The post I published last night around midnight in a thunderstorm disappeared. I used my iPhone, iPad, and laptop in the process of composing and publishing and received comments from Joy and Tammy which I hope I can recover as I reconstruct and republish the post. The sky may be limitless but technology and my use of technology not so much!
Have you enjoyed views of limitless skies or enjoyed some creative pursuits since I last heard from you? I would love to have you share with me!
