A Lazy Sunday Afternoon..........

Image
Hi There!!!

I hope your Monday is going smoothly!

I am taking it easy today. My physical therapy
was this morning and left me feeling so tired all
day....not sleeping does not help either!!





 I wanted to share a few photos with you today.



Just around the corner from my home is a small
farm. The folks that live there own three horses, which are males. We think they are brothers.
They are the sweetest guys. So friendly and affectionate! We sometimes bring some carrots
with us, but this time we had none to give.

Aren't they beautiful!!!!

 Where we live in Georgia, we have had some rain almost every week this summer so far.

I wish I could send some of this to the middle
of our country, where the grain farms and livestock need it so very badly.

I wish you All Happiness and good Health!!
Love and Blessings

Crazy Quilt Stitches and Physical Therapy......

Image
Hi Dear Friends......... 
 I have been pretty busy lately with my Physiacl therapy session three to four times per week and also working on my class project over at Artful Gathering in Pat Winters Crazy Quilt session.


 I have been learning some new stitches...The Lazy Daisy stitch! The Feather stitch and the Herringbone stitch.

I also have been learning to make ribbon roses with a needle and some gorgeou silk ribbons.

My stitches are rather "wonky" but I am having fun, and really thats what it is all about, right?
 I decided to turn a couple of would be flowers into tiny fan shapes....I love how they turned out!!






I have a long way to go and will be adding quite a bit of ribbon flowers next!! So stay tuned I will be back!!!!!


Thank you to all of you who have been saying prayers for me and all my pain. The PT sessions are really helping me and so for the next two months I will be going and getting better everyday!!!

God is Good!!!


Love to All and God Bless You.....

Crazy Quilt Class....

Image
Hi Sweeties!!!        


I hope all of you are doing well!!


I have been very busy lately.
I started a class this week with
Artful Gathering in Pat Winters
class. I am learing how to Crazy
Quilt!!! Yay!! I have always wanted
to learn how to make a crazy quilt
and now I am learning how!!
The pictures here is the front of
what is going to be an Accessory
Case, with clasp. Yesterday I learned
how to piece. I wanted to show you
my results.  The next step is to learn
some of the fancy stitching and embellishing
techniques!!  

I am almost done making the 160
"Wish" tags for a wedding thats
coming up at the end of the month.




As some of you know I have started
physical therapy for my hip, leg and
back pain. I go three times a week
for different treatments. Today I
had my third Decompression therapy.
It did not go too well for me this time.
I have to ice my back and take it easy
today.
The mass they found inside my knee
turned out to be a calcification...from
some trauma I must have…

More Goat Farm Pictures and Wedding Tags to make

Hi Sweeties....




I had a few more Goat Farm pictures to
share with you.....Hope you will enjoy!!







A Rose from my garden...just for you :)











I lady who visits my booth regularly loves all the tags I make for items that I am selling. Her daughter is getting married the end of July and so they have asked me to make 160 tags for the "Wish Tree"   On the back of each tag I make, their guests will write their favorite Bible verse for the new couple. I feel so honored to be asked. These four tags were sent as samples to the Mom and Daughter. The tags will be slightly different than these...but I wanted to share them with you.





I wish you All a Wonderful day filled with Gods Blessings and Love Abundant.

The Goat Farm

Image
Hi Sweet Friends.....Hope you all are staying cool!!! Down here in Georgia we have been sweltering in the Hotlanta temps!!! My friend JoAnn and I visited  a place called the "Goat Farm" on Saturday. We spent couple of hours walking around looking at all the diffferent vendors. The temps reached 106 and needless to say it was way tooo hot to stay outside for too long. A "metal" Goat family........Lol :) Where are the real "Goats"....??

I thought you would like to take a stroll and look through some of the photos I took while we were visting the "Goat farm"!!

Love the Cowboy boots!!!





This was such a pretty booth.....

Ummmm still looking for the Goat farm....



No Goats here!!!
There were many of these old abandoned warehouse type structures scattered around the area. I am not sure why they called it a "Goat farm"....I am sure the farm is here somewhere...but darned if I can spot it!!

 I love the twin chairs...don't you??
Did you see …
