Well, let me tell you... with this motif I had a Happy Dance.
Paradigm Lost - Motif finished June 27'10
It was a big one!
This weekend I went Antiquing with my mother for the first time. I guess part of it was being sentimental over my gramma. We were on the hunt for depression glass called Cornflower... my gramma's favorite. My mom only has 1 piece and I didn't have any. We found a few good finds at a couple of different spots. She bought me a plate for an anniversary present and I picked up some glasses and a rose bowl. A little while ago I read on a blog about someone using this neat device to keep sissors in...a flower/scissor frog I think it is called. I have been looking for one ever since. Well I found the perfect one, and basically it was right in my backyard!
Flower Frog being used as Scissor FrogThe town where I live - Cobourg, Ontario - has a big celebration for Canada Day. There are craft tents, a midway, an art show etc. Thursday I am going to venture down and go through the craft tents. I am on the hunt for a few items, and after a few years of going with my mom or my husband, I have realized it is easier to do it withouth them. If you are planning on heading down my way let me know and we can say hello.
Then Friday to Sunday I am off to stitch with a couple of amazing ladies. Poor hubby gets to stay home and study :(
I will hopefully have a status picture to show next week.
Everyone, please have a SAFE and HAPPY Canada Day!!!
