Last year my friend Wave asked if I would be a hostess for an antique club that she is a member of. I hemmed and hawed and turned her down several times, but then caved. I thought it would be a good motivator to get some things done in this old house of mine. So.....last night I hosted the meeting. Though I was a bit stressed out over having the meeting and having every thing in the house "just so", the evening turned out to be lots of fun and I enjoyed having the ladies over. Several of the gals in the group are friends of mine and others I know through the circles of being an antique vendor....aka Junker. The program was to share items of affection, so I shared several of my favorite collections of linens and samplers and the ladies each brought something of theirs that they love and hold near and dear to their heart. I loved listening to them talk and share. To top the evening off, I served homemade cream puffs filled with lemon curd and delightfully sweet whipped cream. It was a sweet evening!
My sewing room is done! I will share that soon..... I LOVE having my own space to create and it is just wonderful. Just wonderful. I wanted to make a little something to have as a raffle for the club gals, so I made up one of my "measure up to love" heart. The heart is made from an old sugar sack and layered with lace, an old measuring tape, buttons and a crochet rose. Filled halfway with lavender and polyfill. They are one of my favorite things to make and I have sold them in the shops for Valentine's Day.
Pardon my absence...all is well. Just absorbed in stuffkies here. I've also been playing in the yard and planting annuals. This is my favorite time of year and I'm taking advantage of it.
Till next time, toodles.
