It seems each month passes by with greater speed. We have lots on our plate this year and we are prepping for the debut event of The Farmer’s Daughter. I was asked to vend wool at a local quilt show. We will be attending the Peninsula Piecemakers Quilt Guild Show in Poquoson, VA, April 7 and 8, 2018. I have been busy, busy, busy dying wool and have nearly 70 yards ready to go. Yes, that’s likely overkill but it’s a beginning. Then I will be adding an Etsy store to sell my wool. It will be listed under FarmersDaughterWool. And so it begins.
Last week I participated in a lovely workshop with Tricia Travis from Texas. She is well known for her rugs of antique postcards. I thought she would be perfect to help me begin The Farmer’s Daughter rug. The design is from a vintage trading card which I happened to find on http://www.graphicsfairy.com. After 3 days the farmer’s daughter is hooked, although she is consulting with a plastic surgeon to fix the nose a bit. Now on to the rest of the rug….I’m thinking this will be a long term project.
And to make life even a little more interesting we are doing a total kitchen remodel…..new appliances, cabinets, counters, removing a wall and a window. Yes, it will be a mess for some time but the end result will be worth it…hopefully. I’ll post photos as we go along. We have been thinking about this project for several years so we should have it the way we want it.
Then the icing on the cake is our lovely daughter Dana has been accepted to Virginia Tech for a master’s program in clinical mental health counseling. We are so proud of this girl. She will be start her classes the beginning of July so that means along with planning her undergraduate graduation events we have another U-Haul in our future! Seriously, we need a frequent mover punch card!
