I remarked to a couple friends that I could have weaved a basket faster then it took me to crosstitch this little basket. It seemed to take forever but I am very pleased with it and anxious to stitch the rest of the design which is just so cute.
I just love the little pears in this design.
Now here are 2 of my grandbabies, aren't they sweet. Baby Anthony came to spend the weekend with us with his Mama and got to spend time with his favorite cousin Tori. Tori is 6 now and Anthony is just 1. They are so cute together. Tori acts like a mama around him or a big sister. She climbed in the playpen with him and they napped for 2 hours together.
Here is Anthony awake...the little lovebug
While looking around on ebay I came across this book
How could I resist it. I just got it in the mail and I am anxious to read it. It is supposed to make a modern reader understand what a womans life would be like living in early New England and/or colonial times. There are some lovely illustrations in it also. Some tombstones and some needleart, samplers and other lovely things made during that time, women's art as they called it. Isn't it funny how married women were called Goodwives, and addressed as Goody this or Goody that. I would be Goody Sharon LOL I can't help but think of Goody Goody gumdrop! I wonder if anyone else remembers that saying... or am I showing my age. UGH!!
Have you heard of Mrs Meyers products?
I have been hearing so many good things about her products and have been wanting to try them. They are all natural products. I found some at HomeGoods and they smell just heavenly. I wish I had a scratch and sniff blog so I could share the scents. I just love them, I am anxious to buy some more. Next I want to try the soaps and dishwashing stuff.
Well, I guess I better go be a goodwife and get the supper done. LOL Have a nice evening everyone. XOXO
