Post Super Bowl – I know there are many Kansas City fans who are thrilled and just as many SanFrancisco fans who aren’t. I, being an Iowa fan, have not been happy all day. Caitlin and the Hawkeyes got beat by Nebraska! Nebraska isn’t even rated!! Iowa was rated Number 2 at game time. This won’t be good. Sigh.
I read every single comment and would like to thank all of you who made such good suggestions about my hands. I think I’ve done them all except the vinegar in bags and massage which I know would be too painful. The one thing that I get the most relief from is the hot paraffin bath. I think I’ll do that when I finish this post.
The reader paints these cottage scenes and then adds embroidered details. Stunning work!
I finished Big Harvey today and will take his picture tomorrow.
Took this picture today in the barn – for those of you who remember, this is Emma’s old chair that BW decided to sit in.
I have enjoyed hearing all the suggestions of what to do with my hand pieced blocks. Remember that piece of French needlework that I showed you?
I believe the front was colorful originally, too, but has faded into this lovely gold and I did want to see both sides. I am having it framed between two pieces of glass like many of you suggested for the quilt blocks. I’m going to wait till I see that result before I decide.
It’s been a very full day – my book is calling me.
