New bonnets

I did want to let you know that I made two more of the quilted brim bonnets. I had made two of these
red bonnet and sold
them right away. They are made from a reproduction quilt fabric. Bonnets  inspired by a "Pilgrims and
 Pioneers" pattern.  I am asking $20.99 plus traveling fee.
Email me at "Farmhouse Prims" if interested. I also have a few other colors available that are on a prior post.

I have been making a few things for next months Early Work Mercantile update, I will say  I am excited
with how everything is turning out. I will show pictures later.

Good news finally about my mom, she went to her Dr. at Charlottesville this past Wed. Her physician is
happy with how her arm and leg are healing. So Thur. was the first time in 3 months that she was allowed
to put full weight on her leg and she couldn't even use a walker because of her broken arm.
She walked from PT to her room which was quite a distance. One of the screws is coming out of her
leg, which they say is no big deal, but I think they should have removed it that day, it is bothering her.
They are just watching it for now.

Mom has had such a good attitude, I would be whining the blues everyday if I had gone though all that she has. Her release date is scheduled for April 24th. That will be 100 days in the skilled nursing facility.
And my poor dad, he has made the trip everyday from WV to visit her, except for 3 days due to bad weather.

All I can say is what a year,  Whoooooo

I did want to mention also, that awhile back I was one of the lucky winners of the etsy folkart and primitive
giveaway that they sponsored, I showed  my winnings in a prior post, I did receive a beautiful saltbox
kitchen towel from Darla "Chestnut Valley"   
check out her etsy shop, she does beautiful work, thank you Darla, I love it!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
