First projects

This isn't a first project but it certainly goes back into the 80's when geese were a popular country decorating accessory. I was lucky at the time to find the heart shaped mat that was a popular item then also.
My daughter and I have been inside since tuesday with flu like illness . Whether it is swine or not who can really say. Thank goodness we are both feeling better. Don't think we will go anywhere and keep our germs to ourselves till monday . Hopefully our fellows don't get it too but at least they could rest up on the weekend. Two big craft shows here at two different high schools tomorrow but I think I will have to pass.Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Gosh...your taking me back with that country theme. Those geese, hearts and country colors. I remember when that was all the rage!

    That skor cake looks to die for!!!!

    Thanks for sharing the pics of the kids in costume. I still just love your daughters gift idea! Perfect!

  2. That's a beautiful piece with the perfect matching heart mat.

    Hope you both get to feel better very soon.

  3. I love the geese and the heart shaped mat is great. I still love geese even though they say it's not popular any longer.

    Hope you're both feeling better soon.

  4. I hope you're feeling better! My daughter was home last week with flu-like symptoms, too.

    Love your stitching! It does take me back--I loved those country motifs! :)

  5. I hope you are feeling better and your daughter too.
    Oh, how I remember stitching and decorating in the 80's! Geese, bunnies, hearts, ducks, bears........
