I know it is really Thursday morning here in Idaho, but yesterday I worked on my colonial brown sugar cones, and they are currently drying, so there will be a photo of them all wrapped up and pretty next post. I did work on my punch needle project, and it is soooo close to being done. I need to divide my time between three things today - my quilting studio, putting another coat of paint on our spare bedroom, and this punch needle, in that order.
This morning it is raining and very windy, something that doesn't happen too often here - storm. I love rain, and like snow even more, but since it is 7:15am and already in the low 40's, I guess rain is second best. I love the coziness of home when it is storming outside. Just images of curling up by our fireplace with either a stitching project or a good book just reaks of comfort! I am in the middle of a 9 book historical fiction series about the revolutionary war and life in the colonial days of early America called 'Prelude to Glory' by Ron Carter. Like I said, there are nine in this series, and there are only five pictured here, but one I had to borrow and the others I can't find yet. This series was only published in the late 90's - early 2000's, but one of the books is over $200! That will be one I borrow! They are out of print and are very hard to find. Anyway, they describe early American life very well. I am only on the third book! Ha, but I love them.
What are you doing today? Are you doing some creating, rearranging, or beautifying? Whatever it is, enjoy it - tonight we are having lasagna soup for dinner with some "homemade" rolls, perfect for a rainy day. Thanks, Cousin Aud, for this timeless recipe!
I am a displaced early American born about 200 years too late! Actually, I do like my indoor bathroom facilities, but envy the simplicity and commonness that filled the days of the colonial women. Hard work, but they would and did find joy in their day!
