Last weekend were the Primitive Shows in Central Illinois.
Mom and I stopped at a few of our favorites.
We had a busy weekend, but definitely had fun.
There were some truly stunning works of needle art there.
All of these were beyond my budget, but I just had to share their beauty.
So many incredible needle artists years ago.
You would love to know more about the artists and their lives.
Too bad I didn't win the lottery,
They would have all come home with me!
The graphics on some look like modern art
And the combination of colors - oh my!
Will someone look at any of my work 100 years from now and sigh or exclaim?
I could only hope...
Don't you just love those early blues?!
To have a stack to enjoy... Ahhh
And here is some work from one of my favorite current needle artists, Ginny Henson
A stunning combination of needlework and antique frame.
And some sweet kitties that could easily be mistaken for antiques.
Lovely work with early materials.
I know that this photo doesn't really "belong", but who can resist the sweet piggies?!
Where does the time go?! Has it really been a week already?
I do need to take more time for my blog as I always feel that I have so much to share...
We love because he first loved us. Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
~1 John 4:19-21
