HEAD OVER HEELS FOR PINWHEELS!

Howdy! Does anyone remember the cute little old lady, "Minnie Pearl" from Hee-Haw? It was a show my family always watched when I was a much younger than I am now girl. Anywho, for some reason "Howdy" has Minnie Pearl written all over it. She always wore this large brimmed hat with the price tag hanging down on the back of her hat. It was her funny sense of humor and trademark. She has nothing to do with this post, but the greeting brought her to mind.

It has been soooo long since I last posted, and actually I have stitched (completed) four or five projects.  I guess I must be saving them to post on a rainy day.  Keep your eyes out.....you just never know when I will get them posted.  I still need to finish my draft on Shop Hop, Part II.  I kind of left you hanging on that one.  Sorry!!! 

This is a photo as of lunch time today on my latest WIP, Pennsylvania Pinwheel, by Carriage House Samplings.  I changed the colors to DMC 829, 3371, 3857.  As I was stitching this it dawned on me that these three colors are mine and my hubbys high school colors.  Mine were brown/gold and his were the gold/red.  I thought what a coincidence, who would have ever thunk it!!! 

This will have to be a short post, got to get back to the grind, work is calling!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting.

Smiles.....

How-deeeeeee Jolene! You have to say it as Minnie Pearl would. :o) Love your WIP and the colors are great together. Yep, I've been waiting for the part 2 post and wondering what happened to you. Doncha hate it when life and work gets in the way?

Loved Minnie Pearl! My step-father loved watching Hee-Haw, much to my mother's chagrin! I loved her hats with the price tag still on them :)

Your WIP is very pretty. I've always admired that design. Love your little scissors fob too :)

Hi Jolene! I haven't posted in so long myself, so don't worry. Love your Pinwheel. It's got kind of a country look to it which appeals to me. Enjoy stitching the rest.

Hope you're having a great summer.

Good to see your post, Jolene. I like your start on the pinwheel...very cute. Looks like a fun stitch. I look forward to seeing your finishes. I wouldn't worry about not posting, it's always fun to read and catch up when someone has a moment to post us up-to-date! Hee-Haw was fun to watch, I liked when they did the one-liners with the cornfield behind each person as they spoke. Stitch smiling!!

I never knew I loved pinwheels but after seeing yours I do now. It is just gorgeous and I love the colors you have chosen - they are gorgeous.
Love
