We are on the last two months before our daughters wedding on June 25th. This month I am hosting a shower for her at my house. The weather had better improve before then. This weekend we are going to be making these balls that will hang from shepards hooks at the entry to the tent that will house the reception.
Seems now each weekend will be dedicated to something.
However, I did make up this little piece 12"x 16" in preparation to a larger piece I want to make
which I want to give an impressionistic feel in fabric. I am testing whether it is possible to find fabric for the background that will give you that feel along with the batiks. I thought this was fairly successful.
I also had to go out to an 1885 farmhouse this morning to look at a set of antique wicker furniture to possibly purchase from this couple who are now too old to stay on the farm. It is always sad but this woman who is 86 is ready for the change and gave me a wonderful tour of the house and told me all sorts of stories about the parties she had there and the joy she had raising her NINE children.
Of course I had to stop and take some photos of the cows enjoying a warm day out in the pastures.
Isn't she beautiful!
Of course I could not forget the horse and pony grazing across the street!
So nice for spring to return.
This was one of my favorites calls that I have made and if I were 20 years younger I would be tempted to buy this place. It needs a lot of TLC but the views and the countryside is gorgeous.
