Just going to finish this up and decide what to do with it. Maybe a small bag, or frame it or????
Great weather here today, so plan on being out on the porch or the deck. Reading a good book so that can go out with me. We don't go far, but the kids and Grand kids are always popping in and out or here for dinner, but since my two daughters are old now, the rolls have started to reverse, they take care of a lot of the food and cleanup. kind of strange. bue OK!!!
Hope you are HAVING A GOOD DAY.

Love your work! You could make/attach it to the front of an apron. It would signify the food and the cook!

Very pretty. It would make a nice lavender sachet or maybe a handkerchief or lingerie bag if it is big enough. Hard to tell what size it is.

jeannie! I am reading your post here and absolutely grinning ear to ear! I have not been on the forum for a few years! (we made a big re-location and life change back in 2016) But like you, right now, in these "crazy" times, I needed to come back to the farm. And I see you, and all the other farmgirl friends still here. So happy.

I guess I collect Marbles. Once in a while I will see a bag of them at the thrift store or garage sales. I really like it when I find the older ones.
Been really hot here this summer. But its hard for me to sit still, so reading is my usual go to. But for some reason I'm knitting a winter scarf. Not sure what that means.

About 30 years ago my son-in-law was working on a big construction job in San Francisco. He found a lot of Chinese marbles predating the 1906 earthquake and shared some of them with me.

DH and I each have our own jar of more modern marbles. I like the aggie-style from the 40s-50s and he prefers the cats eyes. My jar is bigger cuz I usually win.

Hopefully this works, I’m new to chat rooms and I meant to tell Nancy how pretty her embroidery was . Well I reposted her original post rather than commenting. Geez I’m old . My granddaughter could have shown me
Hopefully this gets to Nancy Gartenman
