Hopes and Dreams

Thought for today - "a house is made of bricks and beams, a Home is made of hopes and dreams" (KLOVE radio)

Garden Daydreams

As my garden grows slowly (emphasis on slowly), I find myself daydreaming of Autumn Sunflowers and the beauty of the trees as they showcase their Fall colors.

For the Love of Birds

The type of bird I like is made from fabric with a strip of jute holding a sprig of Sweet Annie or one stitched in DMC on a Prim Cross Stitch design, NOT real ones who drive me out of my own flower garden due to a supposed nest ... yup, I will stick with fabric!

Independence Day

Tomorrow as we gather 'round the barbeque with friends and family celebrating the independence granted to us so many years ago, may the day find us always thankful for the freedom we experience, the family that surrounds us, and the LORD God who offered up His Son to save us.  May God bless your Fourth of July, 2017!

Sunshine, black clouds, pouring rain, repeat .... summer in Maine seems to be getting a slow start, but many prefer this weather over the snowy days of Winter - I am a Winter girl so I don't understand why but okay. Before I know it I will be harvesting the pumpkins and preparing for the holidays .... until then, have fun running between the raindrops!

Saturday Snuggles

Can't beat a Saturday morning playing with the grandbaby - one minute she is serious and the next belly laughing with Grandpa - a morning well spent for sure!  After a little work in the garden and some of those dreaded weekend chores, I am ready to finish off my latest cross stitch design - stuffing, photographing, finalizing the pattern details and it will be ready for purchasing.  Stay tuned!

Shades of Pink

Shades of Pink is the dominant color in my flowerbeds - similar to the colors in my "Prim Blooms" cross stitch design - only difference is I don't have birdhouses or a Prim Sheep in my yard.

Summer Is Here

June 21,2017 - the first day of Summer and what was I doing, doodling drawings of Witch's Shoes and Pumpkins, Candy Corn and Haunted Houses all for my latest Cross Stitch design soon to be photographed and listed in my Etsy shop.  While everyone is enjoying Summer vacations, picnics, and walks along the beach, I am daydreaming of Halloween and all the chills and thrills that holiday brings.  Guess I shall always be an Autumn girl at heart.
