Happy New Year!

Resolutions? Keep Moving forward, take time for myself,post often, try new things……..
The ground is covered in it’s winter blanket and 5 degrees today. Taking out a favorite antique tea cup and saucer and brewing tea in an ol English tea pot. Tonight I will go out to the studio and play by designing a wool tea cozy.
A pot of soup is on the stove in my favorite copper kettle. I will sit a small table in front of the kitchen window and watch the snow falling softly.
A mix of antique Flo Blue and Ironstone with unmatched antique silver ware and cloth napkin with cotton lace will grace the table for my special time.
A simple meal served with my favorite collections and a view make for time to let my mind go to a dreamy place to create before heading to the studio.
Why not live your dream….enjoy and be in the moment!
A trip to Texas to visit children and grandchildren I took a day to meet and visit Edyth Oneil in Fredricksburg Texas. What a delight! It was one of my dreams and all it took was a simple email and 3 hrs travel time!She has always been an inspiration and much in common as Antique dealers. collectors of Antique China head Dolls, as well as and not least, designed and Hooks rugs!
I purchased one of Edyth’s large dolls ready to be dressed! She did have a name from Edyth but it was only giving an proper to name her Edyth!
Another evening this winter in the studio, I will pull out baskets of antique fabrics, buttons and trims to design and make a new dress, knit a shawl for her.

Of course she will need a hand hooked small rug to sit in front of her Windsor chair. So much fun!

The “Thursday Hooking Girls” will begin their new 6 weeks class and doing a Hit and Miss rug to use some of their scraps.

Next week will be an open house for the Fiddlehead Finery Studio for quilters, hookers, and needleworkers who have not been here. The Thursday Girls will be showing some of their finished rugs as well. Go to the calendar and see the schedule for events.

Enjoy your Cabin Fever time…..you will find you don’t have enough cabin time! I know I won’t!!!!
