All the talk of the Roseville Album and it's glorious color has got me thinking about why I have long preferred the darker palettes of Civil War reproduction prints and Thimbleberries and Kansas Troubles and the like.
There's an authentic feedsack or two in the mix (one my mother gave me), but most of the fabrics are repros. I think I originally had nine blocks...don't have a clue where the other one is (perhaps in the box with the unfinished cross stitch projects of 1988).
I helped the looks of one of the blocks with a little "cherry" on top.
Yeah, buddy. Sweetness and light. Please, pretty please, with a cherry on top.
Blaaaaaaaaah! Blaaaah, blaaah. Blaaaah. :-P
Sweetness and Light, indeed!! LOL
The Psalmist writes, "If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,' even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made..." (Psalm 139:11-12, 14)
Today, it's more "fearfully" than "wonderfully." :-D
