Tip toe through the tulips and much more

 Pattern from year of chalk.
This is for my youngest daughter Alyssa
for Graduating college.  I am not able to travel
long distance yet, due to recovering from mold.
I am there in spirit and couldn't be prouder.  She is
my third child and all graduated from college.
Plant seeds of Joy wherever you go Alyssa.
I love you.  P.S. Aunt Carol said you look just like me.
 Summer.  Finished and framed
I actually had this framed from Joanns
I was  little nervous dropping it off.
It looks great.  It's hanging on my wall.
once in a while it's nice to have a professional
finish a piece.

 Spring EQUALS flowers
Love the tulips by a park I walk at.  In a
perfect world I would be living in the Tudor house.
I just adore Tudor homes.

 Fresh spring water.
water tastes so good.  I found a
fresh clean spring where I live.   I fill up
my jars every couple of weeks.

 I have planted some Herbs.  I grew some from seeds.
I still get exited to see things grow from seed.
the seeds I dried out and planted from an
organic squash I ate.  These are growing real well.

 Fresh flavored water.  Let it seep in the sun.
ohhh so good.
A beautiful sky.

Since recovering from mold, I have learned more then I
ever cared to know about healing,
our current medical system, etc.  I will do a
blog on this one day.  What I will pass along is a video on 
The truth about cancer.
 Ty Bollinger did extensive research on the subject.
It confirms what I always believed.
  A must watch for everyone.  It is
a 9 part series,  watch the first one and you will be hooked.
You can also Google on you  tube the truth about Cancer
Pass it along to loved ones

Strawberry fields forever

Strawberry house by LHN
The colors in this piece are really pretty.
I changed the bird to blue.
I outlined the house in white.
This reminds of the Beatles song.
Also reminds me of Tom in heaven,
my step dad, who was a huge Beatles
fan.  We grew  up listening to this music.
We also share the same birthday.   Hello
dad in heaven.

A month in chalk.
I changed the colors a bit.
I liked adding the blue for the water.

I took  a 3 day vacation to Gaitlinburg, TN
Buckhorn inn
Such a beautiful place.  I started strawberry
house there.  I did hiking and stitching.  The 2 
most relaxing things for me.  If you are
ever in the area, I highly recommend it.

 Smokey mountains 
A view from the bedroom balcony.
The cottage also has a screened in porch.

The Inn has a nature trail on the property
with different gardens.  It went so quick,
but doesn't it always.

Welcome March

 This pattern I got on pinterest.
Such a pretty bunny.
I used my own colors.

 My friend Tricia made me this beautiful
blanket.  my favorite color is blue.
It took her 69 hours to crochet this piece.
She did an amazing job.

 This is My dresser decorated for spring.
 These are LeCreuset cups.
Rainbow colors.  I use these for my
homemade chocolate mousse.
Happy spring

Spring ahead

Does anyone want spring?
With Easter the end of March,  I needed some
spring stitches to display.
Both lizzie kate patterns.
This kit was sent to me and I was drawn
to the spring colors.  Bunnies are my favorite in
the spring
Bless our home stitched over one.  This
is a Christmas ornament but will be displayed
in the spring and summer.
Looking forward to March.
Happy stitching.

first 2 finishes of February

 The Prarie schooler
This piece was done over 1 on 28 ct linen
Inspired by my sisters dog Mongo, I call
him Moo.  He keeps  me busy and thinks I
moved in as his own personal entertainer.  
He brings brings me joy and gives me lots
of love.  Pets are special aren't they?
They all have their own  personality. 

LHN.  I adore this gingerbread man.
I changed  the colors around.  once I finished
stitching,  I gave it  antique highlights.
This is out of the box for  me, it gives the
piece a rustic feel.   I like the red border, more
of a Christmas feel.

 Moo and me in October,  he looks super happy.
Happy Valentines day to everyone.
Time goes so fast.
Blessings to everyone.

last post for January 2016

January was a busy stitching month.
I am getting  more strength each day
From the Prarie schooler book 48
Sunflowers are one of my favorite
flowers.  I did this on 32 ct. over one.
this mini stitch is really pretty.
This prairie schooler santa is
from book 51.  stitched on 32ct
Barnwood linen.
Noel by trail creek farm
I couldn't get a great picture to
capture the sparkle linen.
Pattern by Lizzie kate
To display this piece I wanted it
to be more portable.  I attached it to
a piece of wood.
This is a new display I purchased.
it will be great to swith different
pieces for seasons coming up.

My friend Peggy who went home to
heaven last fall stithed this piece.
I finished it.  it was a challenge.
There was no template.  a very pretty
piece by Homespun elegance.

My display on my dresser.

This prairie schooler santa is from book
48.  I left off the welcome.  As you can see I
chaneed the patterns a little.  can you see the crystals?
I have been drawn to the Prarie schooler patterns lately.
It's the simplicity of stitching them.
A lot of pieces in one post.  I usually post 
a couple of pieces at a time.
Into February we go.
happy stitching everyone.
