Hopefully the Lamb will be around at the end of the month.
I have completed painting the guest bedroom on the main floor. I can only describe the walls as Butter! I love how the room looks. I am accenting it with blues and whites to tone down the butter a bit, but it is a happy room, even so it's walls are bare.
I have an embroidery piece that my Mother did when she was expecting her first child - my oldest brother Wayne in 1942. It is the child's prayer "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep".
I was going to hang it when my own so was born in 1988, but it didn't fit in with clouds, rainbows and teddy bears, so I tucked it away to use somewhere later on.
I now have the perfect place for it. I need to find a frame, but once I do, it will be hanging in the butter room.
I never saw my Mother embroider in her later years - too bad, because she was very good at it. This piece is beautifully done in a mixture of cross stitch, straight and satin stitches, done on linen. The detail is wonderful. It is a heirloom to be handed down to the generations to come, and now that embroidery has come back into Vogue - there is a good possibility that someone in the family might cherish it as much as I do.
Now I am moving my painting efforts down to the basement bedroom. That room is going to be butter as well, but down there the butter will look much darker - closer to warm honey than butter.
I am making myself hungry. Guess it's time to go down for breakfast and get my day started.
Enjoy your day!
