I didn't mean to place an order, I really didn't....
After finishing the "Sharing" piece below, I got obsessed with Quaker/primitive/homespun style pieces. Perfect for my kitchen! And how convenient that someone shared this on a message board I frequent. Must have!!
And then I saw Country Cottage Needleworks' "Cowboy Dreams," which reminded me in a bittersweet fashion of my husband's stepfather - a country vet who is currently suffering from Alzheimer's. I know it is "kid" oriented design, but perhaps that is why it spoke to me the way it did. He is such a sweet man, and the family has always referred to him as a true cowboy.
So they'll be coming to my house soon. I should probably get cracking on "Cowboy Dreams" ASAP, because realistically (and sadly) we don't know how much longer he will be with us. I know his wife - my MIL - will love the piece, too.
