I'm get closer to being done despite the yard work for this almost 8 acres. No it is not a pristine, coiffed yard, it is all I can do to just keep the grass cut after all the rain, so not a lot of weed pulling, pruning and fluffing up.
I think Westmoreland Ponies is coming along well and nearing the end. In person the crown/crest appears darker, which is nice. It will be ready to show in Cape May this September along with the other rugs completed since last year's show.
Okay, so tooting my horn....... A week or so ago I received a nice inquiry from Mary Jane asking if I'd give permission for her to post a picture of my Domestic Zoo on her blog. Well hey, of course she had my permission. Mary Jane mentioned wanting to do some research on Magdalena Briner and wanted to show my rug and the availability of patterns.
Then I mentioned research on Magdalena had already been done by Evelyn Lawrence and was in a book co-authored with Kathy Wright. But believe me I was humbled and honored just being asked to be on the same blog by and with these women who I respect.
So for those of you who are new to hooking and love primitive, .....enjoy MaryJane's bog. http://www.maryjanesrugs.com/blog/1950172-magdalina/
Thanks Mary Jane for thinking my adaptation of Domestic Zoo worthy of being mentioned on your blog. And thanks to everyone who drops by. Have a great evening and stay cool.
