Ida Mae Crow

Yes, I do love birds...I have two pet birds..I just could not resist stitching this darling design by The Goode Huswife called "Ida Mae Crow" :)
Isn't she a sweet bird? Just in time for Fall!
I just finished her up a little while ago.
She is stitched with DMC threads on 25 count Potato Lugana.

I do hope to do something with her soon...
I have been piling up my finished pieces and keeping them safe in a wooden dresser.
I really need to be framing them for all to see, especially me!

I went with my Dear Husband to the antique shop today in search of something...
in search of some old keys..skeleton keys...
I was speaking with my sister in law Nicole about that. ~Waving~ "Hi Nicole!"
Yes, they did have an old ring of them..some old, some not so old..
Connie the owner, wasn't quite sure how old they were.
I wanted to buy them all!! But, I had to control myself. As they say, "less is more"!

Sooooo.....knowing "I" wanted one, and "Nicole" wanted one..
I purchased two.
They are pretty neat I think.
You can see them in the photo with my Ida Mae stitchery.

So, Nicole..will send one of them out to you soon my sweet sista! ;)

For those that may not know,..Nicole is my brothers wife, and actually, she is really like a twin of me! We like all the same things. I only wished we had lived near each other..oh boy, we would be partners in crime. :)

Wishing you all a Blessed night,
With RaggedyStitches,
