Another Lavender Ladye Hang It, but this one's a little black girl!!! Isn't she cute??? She has little antique button eyes and a little stitched mouth. Her pretty little wool skirt is a soft hand dyed sage. She's also filled with crushed walnut shells and sweet smelling lavender. I used antique lace for the hanger pinned on with rusty safety pins so you can adjust the length if you need to. And of course like the other one (that's white) she was inspired by my friend Lori,Notforgotten Farm's pattern. Forgot to say that she also had a bath in walnut dye & spices.
Black Lavender Ladye Hang It is FOR SALE if you're interested!!! SOLD!!!! Thank You!!!
Been a kinda tough week-end, there's some tougher days ahead, but I'll make it through. Saturday I planted this little paper heart that had been put in the box I received from the funeral home that had the guest book & holy cards,etc in it. I didn't see it at 1st last summer when they gave it to me. The heart was on a little card that says, Plant this heart in your garden and wildflowers will blossom year after year in memory of your loved one. I tied 2 popsicle sticks together with hemp twine in the shape of a cross and I wrote on it with permanent marker, IN then I put a heart, MEMORY on the horizontal stick and then JOHN on the vertical stick. I sure hope the seeds in that little heart grow, since I didn't get it planted last summer. Because he went to ICU the Saturday before Memorial Day,I felt it was the perfect day to plant it.
Hope you're all having a great long week-end!!!! It's stifling HOT here!!!

I have a few things to talk about in order of importance.
1st I'd like to ask a favor. Please in your prayers would you add my friend Lori Rippey, (homespunquilts) and her husband Brian. It's a long story that started a month ago when Brian went to the hospital to get his back pain checked out. I'm making this story shorter,but the diagnosis didn't make sense to them or me,I do remember a little from my nursing days, and Brian still hadn't been feeling good. He drove himself to the hospital,I think it was Tuesday evening,because he wanted to get his heart checked out while it was doing what he had been experiencing. Well what has ended up is that this family has experienced a HUGE MIRACLE!!! Everything fell perfectly into place and he was life flighted to another hospital where there where Mayo Clinic Dr.'s awaiting his arrival to do emergency surgery that saved his life!!! Turns out that all this time he had a large anuerisym from his heart almost reaching to his lung. I prayed SO hard when Lori called to tell me he was in surgery,she had been keeping me informed. But from the beginning in my heart I KNEW he was going to be OK!!! He has a long road of recovery ahead, but he'll end up better than ever now because everything will be working right again. I'm encouraging Lori to do the best she can taking care of herself, because it's VERY hard on the people who aren't the patient too. I'm thankful for the great support she has there with her and that I can at the very least be here for her when she calls me.
Thank You Dear God!!!
2nd I want to say Thank You to all who kindly commented about my visits from the finch!!! Comments mean SO much to me!!! Ater I wrote that post I didn't see him anymore,till yesterday when he came back 1 time and pecked harder than he ever had on the window!!! THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!!!
So 3rd. I guess you may have noticed the pictures I've been adding to this post LOL!!!!
This is, "Lavender Ladye Pinkeep". She's another wonderful pattern by my friend Lori Brechlin,Notforgotten Farm. I have coined a new word for these hangy things I make, "Hang Its" because you can hang them anywhere you want to.
Now about "Lavender Ladye" She's wearing a beautiful marbelized hand dyed skirt. I've handstitched her face and used teeny tiny black buttons that I sanded down. After I hand sewed a vintage wool backing I stuffed it with crushed walnut shells and of course sweet smelling dried lavender. To make it a "Hang It" I used antique lace pinned on the back with rusty safety pins,so that you can adjust the length if you'd like to. "
"Lavender Ladye" is 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" and 10" long with the antique lace hanger.
I'm asking $54.00 for "Lavender Ladye" with FREE shipping.
I'm working on a black "Lavender Ladye" now.
Again Thank You with all my heart,you WONDERFUL people out there,you are a bigger part of my life than you know!!!!!
