Two years later...the story continues..............

Two years later, I have decided to blog again.  Why?  I have no idea... seems like the thing to do. well, I have a few ideas, really// To tie up loose ends, to communicate ideas thru blogging.. Verbal communication has become more difficult.. and now that I am no longer in the shop, socializing has changed.  I suppose there are some good reasons.
Whats on my mind today? Holiday stuff! Yah, yah, I know it's not even Halloween, but when the mood hits you, you just gotta go with it.
So I got this piece of unfinished embroidery at an estate sale recently.. Exquisitely done, I know I could never match the workmanship, even if I could find some thread to match. So I plan to use it in it's current state. Use it for what? I have no's just so pretty.

Maybe just leave it draped over the back of the couch...
Looks nice next to my deer pillow....kind of a Scandinavian look, don't you think?  I never use red in decorating, with the exception of Christmas. I don't even like red... But I like this.
While digging around, I found an unfinished project from at least 15 years ago...I am almost ashamed to post a photo, my skills at rug hooking are so poor....but here it is.
Meant to look like St Nick and a sheep, I think I might trash it, or not....but I have to do something with it. It's now or never.  It's not so much the primitive hooking, it's that the face is so..............I don't even know....cartoonish... UGH...
Another find while digging around is this velvet skirt just begging to be cut up and made into something gloriously festive.
What will it become?
Stand by for further updates.
