Here it is My Seven Stars. I just love this piece. I have not put a back on it yet but will do that soon. I am anxious to use it on an end table. Hope you like seeing it as much as I enjoyed stitching it.
Here is a small finish that I wanted to share with everyone. I just love this design and finally put it together. I filled it with crushed walnut shells and added that trim. Its from an earlier Blackbird Design Autumn Song. I just love this leaflet. I am planning on making the Autumn Song design which is a lovely blackbird surrounded by autumn leaves. They show it made into a round box and I hope to make it as close to the way they have done it as possible. Its just so pretty.
I love trims and I am always searching for new pretty ones. I found these the other day in Joann's. Each spool was just $2.50 and has 15 feet of trim. A great bargain I thought. I can't stop thinking of all the things I can make just to trim them with these lovely trims.
I have been busy with Summer recreation at the park. The children and us counselors have been having lots of fun. Yesterday we had a day of Clown School. The children had 5 separate Clown Classes to attend during the morning and if they completed each, they got to graduate from Clown school. It was lots of fun. I was in charge of clown costumes which consisted of hats and bow ties. I made the children funny hats and gigantic bow ties and they had to decorate them anyway they like. That was lots of fun. There was a juggling class, a face paint class, a balloon art class, and my favorite class of all was the HAHA class. Here the children learned how to laugh and make others laugh as well. It was pretty funny.
I just had to share something cute I found on ebay. I just love redware and I found this cute little bowl that I had to have. It is a Zettlemoyer pottery piece which is Traditional Penslyvania German Redware. I am getting so hooked on this stuff. I am planning on redecorating a bit this fall and I am anxious to display all my redware in one spot. Of course I need a great spot, and I need more redware. I love this design of the 2 headed eagle. It is also known as the double dove. It represents strength and courage, the heart in the center is for love in marriage. This design is attributed to George Hubener, 1786. If anyone knows anymore information about it I would love to hear from you.
Here is my sweet baby Anthony, getting bigger everyday and still smiling and happy as can be. The last picture is Anthony with his cousin David.
Hurrah its the weekend and I am soooo glad. Have a great weekend everyone, doing whatever it is you love to do. Hope I get lots of stitching done. xoxoxoxoxo Love to all.
