Jeez....3 tests in 3 weeks....how do these instructors expect me to cram that much information in my little brain and not have some information start falling out...LOL I know the light at the end of the tunnel will show up soon.
My sewing room has been missing me and feeling ignored. I still have to finish my little sewing case and Polka Dot Girls, the next block is almost done. I've started a miniature tumbler quilt and my square in a square blocks are wondering when I'll start playing with them again.....soon...soon I'll be back to sewing.
I found this book at an antique sale last weekend, it was published in 1929. In case you needed instructions on how to serve your family this is a good book...LOL Imagine a time when women spent all day planning meals and learning to set the table just right, the water glass is placed 1" above the fork....who cares. Can you imagine ovens didn't always have temperature indicators, this book talks about testing the oven temperature using the paper method, seems risky to me. Who knows I might find a really good recipe in here.
This jug was also something I bought. Most of this "style of jugs" were used to hold Whiskey but this one has written Botanical Works on the front and no mention of Whiskey. I was curious to find out what this jug held, my first thought is maybe liquid fertilizer for plants. My FIL tells me they didn't have liquid fertilizer in 1938. I found the company that made the jug and it was operational until the mid 70's under the name of Govencroft. Maybe a trip to Glasgow would be helpful....LOL
Jenny is enjoying a bit of sunshine at the back door. It's so cute how she brings her back legs up over her head just like doing pilates.
