Barb has done it again!
Barb and I met over the weekend at Bottom's Up. No...we weren't going to a "gentleman's club"....and I use the term Gentleman very loosely.... and we weren't doing the Cancan at the Moulin Rouge. Just the thought of Barb and I doing the Cancan makes me want to say OUCH! No Dancing with the Stars for us. We were involved in free-wheeling and decadent entertainment of the antiquing kind.
The first weekend of each month is a gala affair down in the historic west bottoms of "Cow Town." The old buildings around the stockyard area of Kansas City are slowing being converted into antique havens. Bottoms Up is our favorite one. It's packed with vendors who bring the best stuff. I will have to take my camera next time so you can visit too.
As we were getting ready to leave, Barb pulled the linen pictured above, from the front seat of her car. Thought I would give you a peek. This piece is the final bonus pattern which will be included in #12 of the Anniversary of the Heart series. I'm working on the pattern today. It will be ready soon.
My Elizabeth Scheffield is coming along too. Love the green parrot. Thank goodness the parrot is over two threads! I think I'm going to stitch my Mom's name on this one. I might add some flowers on the stem behind the parrot. It looks like it needs a couple there.
And....my books from Bonnie Slotnick came on Friday. Great weekend reading!
I'm going to have to try the taffy. I purchased this book in memory of my father. I remember him making taffy at Christmas time and thought it would be fun to try.
Well...have to go. Work is calling. Will show the final pattern for Anniversaries of the Heart soon.
Until later dear friends!
