After four days of dismal, drizzley, and torrential down pours...we have the sun!!  I was glad for the rain...but after a few days...enough much flooding of streets and basements...UGH!   I've had such a busy week...going here and there and accomplishing nothing...but I did have a fun weekend.

I have been working on a sampler from Stacy Nash "From Me to Thee".   I stitched one a few years ago and sold it, so now I'm stitching another one for the October update of EWM.    

Love my little sewing box that I purchased from Lisa Evans, "Folk For All Seasons".  She does the most beautiful folk art with old boxes, pieces of woods, etc.  

Inside the box are little cubbies and then she has lined the lid with a piece of antique Victorian crazy quilt. 

You can find Lisa on FB under Folk For All Seasons.  She posts daily and updates her etsy also.

A couple of pics of the items I purchased last Sunday while out and about with my friend, Earlene. The small wood butter churn

And then this long skinny shelf just wide enough to place my small collection of leather books... little grand daughter, Alexandra, will be coming up on Wednesday for a five day visit.  So excited to see her!!  We haven't seen her since June and she is growing by leaps and bounds!!  She fixed her own hair for this picture..hence....all the bows!!

Have a happy and blessed Sunday...hopefully, the sun is out in your neck of the woods!!
