Back and Forth

That pretty sums up my week! First to the antique shows, then a little vacation trip and finally to help out at Leslie's show in Baldwin City, KS. Whew!
I finished the wool runner and will be listing that on this month's Simply Primitives. I had hoped to upload the photos while out of town but found I didn't have the proper cable but Sharon has graciously offered to let me be a little late this month so I'll be uploading a little later today.
Leslie's work--sampler and sweet angel make-do
Leslie once again did a fantastic job setting up for her show this year. She has a way of taking everyone's crafts and antiques and making them look like they were all carefully chosen and assembled just for the show.
The weather was nice and there was a steady stream of shoppers all evening, thoroughly checking out every cranny for that perfect gift or accent piece.

The fabric covered books by Diane Dodd caught my eye!

I was really intrigued by the charming fabric covered books at the antique shows last weekend, so I was so thrilled to find these authentic looking ones at Leslie's show! They are so carefully constructed and antiqued to perfection!
 It will all come down tomorrow and we'll try to get caught up at work before taking a few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving with family. Have you begun your Thanksgiving preparations yet?

Love your blog so much! Unfortunately I missed your christmas sampler pillow. It was prim perfect. Would love to have been able to shop at Leslie's holiday show but I'm in Virginia. I really loved that little spice cabinet! Blessings to all. Judy C.
