Yup, comes around once every year like clock work. Uh, that would be my birthday; won't say how old I am after reading Lauren's (Rugs and Pugs) latest blog post 😀.
So today decided to treat myself to my favorite lunch at a not so local Chinese buffet where I dined on baked salmon, baked tilapia, calamari, broccoli and mushrooms, asparagus, string beans and two kinds of rice. Yup, all of that went into my belly and I cleaned the plate. Needless to say tonight's dinner will be salad. Most would think I'd have nothing.
And, while out and about I picked up a little something to celebrate even more ~ it is that mustard colored wire basket to display more of my rugs. Am determined to surround myself with the rugs I've created and which give me joy. Besides, if they are visible I'll be more likely to recycle them on tables and chests more often.
Truth is I started treating myself early in the week buying rug patterns. What's better is I've gotten all three at a very good price on ebay. The first is a rug which has been on my 'to do' list for a long time and now won't have to draw it myself. It is an antique adaptation called Early Farm Scene by Frontier Homestead.
Another design I liked is by Folk Art Landing and was also a bargain.
The other I haven't received yet but is this design by Lori Brechlin and sold by Spruce Ridge Studios. I see a class with Kris Miller in my future and this is what will be on my frame when that happens.
Having a glass of Cab as I sign off.
