Great weekend and a little something country shabby

Happy Tuesday blog friends!  Hope you all had a great relaxing weekend.  My hubby and I went and saw Thor.  We really enjoyed it.  They couldn't have picked a better person for the role of Thor.  We went to a new place for dinner, did a little shopping, and just whatever..  We did, however have to take my grandma to minor emergency.. Since she had her stroke some years back, she doesn't have much feeling on her right side and her balance is horrible so... needless to say, she lost her balance and fell and ended up breaking a rib. Thank goodness it is a clean break but the doc said has to heal on it's own and usually will take about 3-4 weeks to heal...  So, other than that...  loved being off for 4 days and sooo hard to come back to work today...  I had planned on completing more of my goodies I have started and that didn't happen.  I was a little lazy and I loved it.. hehe.... 

I did get a country shabby pillow done though..  I hand painted the word Dream on burlap.  There is brown damask fabric on the front and all of the back and then there is a strip of brown ribbon going down the front.  I think it turned out beautiful.  I know it's not really primitive but I did enjoy making it so I think I will venture a bit and see how these go. 
Measures approximately 16" x 8" measured from corner to corner.
$25 + shipping


Have a wonderful day!

Love the pillow. I am loving all things burlap. Glad to hear Grandma will be okay but hear that broke ribs can be painful. Hugs to her and you for taking care of her.
