JoAnn's Memorial Sunday Party~

Hell Friends~
Let me just say this!!!! JoAnn & Bethany's party was the BOMB!!! Good friends!! Delicious food and needlework!!! Is there anything Better?? It started at 11am and we left a little before 6pm. JoAnn has the most wonderful house, with the most ecletic clock collection I have ever seen, by her beloved husband Bob! Lots of chimes, all unique and so cool!! Then you have have JoAnn's Samplers to drool over in every room. And her daughter Bethany is a Sampler lover as well, she was visiting from Florida. She has her Samplers posted to Ellen Chester webshots, under bearlynew2000. Check it out!!! Amazing!! I will treasure this day forever, another sweet memory to add in my heart! Thanks to JoAnn and Bethany, and to all the other dear friends who were there as well.

With Kind Regards~


All of us!!!!

Isabella, Bandit and Sweet Pin Keep~

Hello Friends~
It has been such a long time since my last post, I have missed you. Did April fly by or what? I had a couple of health issues that had me in a funk and several visits to the Dr. That is never fun. But I am feeling better and will continue to get better in time.
As you can see, not much done on Isabella, but I love what I have done. I ended up changing the color on the small alphabet and numbers as well. It called for Biscotti (the row right under the small alphabet) which barely shows on on my fabric. So I changed it to weeks dye works, palamino. It goes good with the other colors in the sampler and I am pleased with it.
Hoping for some wonderful weather this month, here in Ohio! I am wishing all of you many sun-shiny days and times spent with friends. Until next time~
God Bless~

Here is pretty boy, Bandit. He is almost 6 months old and getting close to 20lbs! He and my older dog are now getting along well and playing together, it is so much fun watching them play tug-o-war. He has such amazing energy, wish he could give some!

Look at this sweet pinkeep I got at Etsy!! It is a design by Notforgotten Farm. This was made by Rhonda Tedder of Simple Thyme Prims. She does such a lovely job, all is done by her hand. If you would like to look at her her other offerings, please visit her Etsy shop; http://www.etsy.com/people/SimpleThymePrims

Hello Friends!!
I cant believe how fast April just flew by! I had a couple of health issues, and they kind of had me a bit down. But I am feeling better now and I have missed you. As you can see I don't have alot more done on Isabella, but what is done, I just love. I ended up changing the color in the 2nd alphabet, and numbers as well, the color it called for is biscotti (there is a band of it under the small alphabet) and it barely showed up on the fabric I choose. I used weeks dye works, palomino, and it goes well with the other colors in the Sampler. Can't wait to finish the algerian eyes, then next the grass and the cow!!
The weather han't been that great here in Clinton, Ohio~but I am hoping for some beautiful and warm weather this month! I wish all of you many wonderful sun-shiny days and times with good friends!!
God Bless ~
