Primitive Style Today...

Good Morning Everyone on this beautiful Sunday morning!!!
JoJo and I have been bogged down with a cold these last few days...so I thought I would cruise around and see what's been happening in Blogland...
I have always admired the look of 'Primitive Style'...the gorgeous warm rustic colours and the intensity of some of the work...
I have come across Brenda who is having this beaut woolen style quilt giveaway kit!!!
Brenda also has her own shoppe...so hop on over and have a look and tell her I sent you!!!
Have a lovely day everyone...Dzintra♥

Hello over there!
Hope you and JoJo will be better soon. I've missed you. Thanks so much for that gorgeous card. By the date on the envelope it looks like it took weeks to arrive. Did you know that I am mad for moss? (That sounds strange!) But I am. So your card sits on my nighttable. The new site is beautiful. Really, really. I'm not familiar with Donna Hay but your cooking is stellar, D. Wishing you the best, as always. It's nice to visit with you again.
Much love,
Catherine

Bonjour Dzintra! I forgot that it is winter for you! We here in Minneapolis have had a much cooler summer than normal. Thank you for coming up north to visit me! I just love your header with the castle...that is obviously custom made? How is the stitchery going? You have such beautiful art...Have a blessed day! Anita

Well it is not fun to be under the weather at any time of the year, but I hope that your travel through the primitive world has made you warm and fuzzy.
Up here in my neck of the woods(or should I say waaaaaaay over here on the other side of the pond) primitve has always found a soft spot in my heart.
The food in the last post looks yummy. I love brussel sprouts.
Hope you and JoJo are back to your cheerful selves soon.
Take care, xo Susan

Love the new look, I adore the Gothic fairytale feel of this new template! We are away in our 'van, but Himself has this gadget that lets us use the internet from an apple orchard on a farm!
Hope Jo-jo is on the mend now, love Kath x

Sorrrrrry about the colds!

Your new header is very pretty, but has anyone said that your blog Title needs to be in a deeper color? I really can't read it... it is so pale a color, on top of the picture.

Hi Dzintra,
I just tried your banner on my Pastoral Dreams site and it works. I just checked the box (shrink to fit) and the box for (behind title) and it worked. I think it is your background that wouldn't fit it so that's one of the grey areas I have no knowledge of as yet as how to alter pre-made backgrounds but using a plain background like Pastoral Dreams, it will work; its your choice.

Hi Dzintra,
Hope you and JoJo are on the mend.
Cute sheep quilt!
Your new banner looks great.

Hello Dzintra and JoJo. I do certainly hope this week brings a healthier time. Nothing worse than feeling unwell. Your banner is indeed very enchanting. Happy days.

I do hope you and JoJo feel better soon. Hot lemon and honey does the trick, along with plenty of rest. Take care...Ann :)

Bonjour! Yes, the primative style IS popular here and you will see a lot of it in antique stores and museums. It is also interesting to note how many of our new immigrant cultures bring their own style of stitchery with them, for example, the Hmong people from Laos. There is a heavy population in St. Paul Minnesota and their stitchery is beautiful and USEFUL. For many of the older folks don't read, they use embroidery to tell stories. Their "tapestries" are colorful and intricate and tell stories of their lives as a people torn apart by war...very beautiful! Have sooo much fun with your projects!! Anita
