Happy Sunday!

I've been stitching on some projects... but, since I have too many going at one time... there hasn't been any picture worthy progress on any of them... so, thought I'd give an update on a couple of the goodies I purchased awhile back at the Cinnamon Stick in Hereford, PA!

The Drying Rack made in onto the wall in the front entry room of my home. And inside the rim, I tucked a few items that I think go together pretty well! From left to right... a beautiful prim dolly made by Betty Dekat of primitivebettys! She made her for me as a Birthday gift... has my initials stitched on her apron and a bundle of sweet annie in her arms... :-) Next is a coffee pot that says "I won't be seen until I have me caffeine"! My dh has seen me before caffeine... man o man... does he have some stories to tell!!! lol! Next is a "Home is Best" cross stitch pinkeep made by Betty Dekat. This was part of a swap we had participated in with our eBay group AAPG... and next to that is a little egg basket that was part of a giveaway from Kansas Troubles Quilters. Pinned to the back of the drying rack is a sewie roll that I stitched... it is a design called "Blue Tulip and Bunny Sewie Roll" by primitivebettys. You can purchase the pattern in her Etsy Shop if you'd like. Are you seeing a theme here? lol! Betty always designs and makes beautifully prim items and irresistible patterns! :-)

The other item I had purchased from the Cinnamon Stick was this Shutter Basket. Well... that finally made it onto the wall in my sewing room! When I purchased this, I knew I liked it very much... but wasn't quite sure of what I would use it for. Well... the answer is... to hold all the BOM's that keep arriving in my mailbox that I can't seem to keep up with?!?!?!? lol! Yep... there's a couple of the "Wisdom House" blocks as well as one of the "Snow Days" blocks... lol! I'll get to them... sure enough!

Anyways... you can see plenty of pattern and instruction books, and wool, and quilting cottons and quilt kits also in the pic. Yep... so many hobbies, so little time to do them! I think if you're reading my blog... you know exactly where I'm coming from! ;-)

Have a wonderful week! I'll be back next weekend with some stitching updates...
