Whatever you are, be a good one

I love that Abe Lincoln quote, so I decided to stitch it last night while I watched TV. There actually wasn't much on to watch. I sat there for two hours watching/listening to George Lopez ~ pretty funny show:-) Anyway, I stitched this for my living room. One end of my living room where I had my Christmas tree is just not done yet. That is where I plan to put the basket I'm buying from Pam at Baskets N Prims, the Mercantile sign, the peg shelf and candle ledge. After I get it all finished I'll take some pictures, but that will be a couple months probably. I really want a dry sink on that end of the room, but oh well, I'll have to wait a while for that. :-) I love the fabric on this stitchery. I picked it up before Christmas at Country Sampler, a fabric store near here.What do ya think ?

Hi. I love you valentine heart and willow tree bag. You did a great job!! I have a copy of the Piper Classics catalog on my desk right now. I just ordered the black shower curtain that you show. I love it. Hopefully I can get one of the welcome mats this summer for my back porch. It's too sloppy out now and I don't want it getting dirty!! LOL Have a great day and I'll be back to visit.

I've always loved that saying and tell my kids that often! It's a great stitchery and nice fabric!

And add me to the list that wants a dry sink. I have just the spot...but as you said, I'll have to wait a bit. We've got Jason busy enough these days! Bless his heart!

Have a great weekend! Thank you so much for all your visits to my blog!
