                               Yesterday we went and picked  bunches of tansy.  They are just beautiful this year.  I love having them through-out the house as a deterrent to insects.  In the net few weeks the house will be filled with their scent.

. I have been wanting to find a book with some very old rugs in it.  I wanted to see how they were done and thought about making a couple for the shop.  This book is a treasure.  It is about the life of Magdalena Briner Eby.  SO many times  all information is lost about hookers in the 1800’s but luckily all her information is available.  She was born in 1832, was widowed at age 25 and lived the rest of her life working and caring for family members and quilting and rug hooking.  Family letters of the day held much information. They say that she made between 30 and 50  rugs in her lifetime.  Her history in the first part of this book will excite you. Most of her rugs were simple designs of life around her. Farm animals and flowers. Her life was so interesting, you will love this beautiful book.

Yesterday we did get the Chicken Caravan moved.  It was a challenge , with flat tires and going up hill.  It’s in a good spot now where there is easy access.

Today is a beautiful cool morning and the sheep truly enjoy the cooler weather.  I didn’t get the pickles done yesterday so it’s on my list for today.

I hope  you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.    Carole
