I was painting this object the other night. (I like to paint when I am watching t.v.) This was a gold color and I have been meaning to paint and distress it.
My husband asked what it was. I told him it was a pineapple. It meant welcome to our home in colonial times. He said it didn't look like a pineapple. I just kept painting. Now, that got me thinking....................after 3 years of sitting in my living room, I think it is an artichoke! I can't believe I haven't seen this before! What do you think it is?
I have been working on more baby dresses! I enlarged the pattern for a 6-9 month old. After many tries I got it right. Jessie took this picture and I should have told her to get a close up too.
The bottom of the dress is a white and purple checked fabric and the top is a floral with purple flowers. I am going to give this to a neighbor of ours that has a new baby girl. I will probably make another to give them too. I still haven't taken out my basting threads and it needs some pressing.
In other news......my daughter Amber will be glad to know I got rid of (put in the garage) 3 silk plants from the living room. Time for a change. I am going to get a couple of little real plants and see how long I can keep them alive. I guess the spring weather has gotten to me!
Be back soon!
