|A great new Freebee from Marly of Samplers and Santa's Blog|
Marly has a talent for dyeing fabrics and combining thread colors to achieve the Primitive style she prefers. To achieve this a great deal of talent is required, talent I do not possess and don't see in development any time soon. So....I will continue to do my little cross-stitch projects and wish they were nearly as original and special as Marly's.
- We are so fortunate to have access to outstanding design via the internet. In years past, not that long ago, this did not exist.
- The sun is peeking through heavy rainclouds as a write this. Early Spring in Western Pa. is like this, we have been known to have Four Seasons in one day. Really,
- I have to smile at the multiple uses some new lifestyle guru's have discovered for Mason jars and Jelly jars. Add tape, glitter, rocks, fairy lights and you have craft art. I would have been mortified in childhood if I had to drink from a Mason jar, it would have been so tacky. Now I see them as nostalgic, sweet, comforting.
- My chives are doing splendidly, they survived another Winter. The parsley is struggling a little.
- An Easter gift from a dear Cousin, a Red Hyacinth, is popping up with great promise. I will do some progress pics if I remember. A distracting week this is.
