Look what I bought on eBay last week! Isn't it awesome? If you can't read the writing, it's a Little Women sampler from 1933. I got it for a song, as it still needs to be finished.
Embroidery and cross stitch are two crafty skills that I've not yet mastered, but I'm really looking forward to taking this down to the fabric shop and choosing the matching colors to finish it up---80 years after it was begun!
Welcome to the Homemaking Party!

Here are a couple of my favorites from last week's party:
Whenever I visit Bernideen's Tea Time Blog, she inspires me to beautify my home with soft colors and romantic designs. This week, she shared how she makes chair cushions from place mats. So pretty!
This picture that Phyllis Sather posted with her article, Expectations Verses Reality, cracked me up! Those cute bunnies were one of the first things I pinned on Pinterest and I've been meaning to make them. I love how she uses this in an excellent illustration on not being so hard on ourselves.
Thanks to everyone for the great posts!
