Turtle Quilt Finally Showed

Yes, this has been done for quite some time. My fancy clothes lines between the two trees finally fell down and so I took a pic inside on the couch. Sorry for the horrible picture. I took this quilt with me to California, so it's well traveled. See the turtles?

Mill Sacks

I love these mill sacks. 

 I've always wanted to get my hands on some of these.
These are made of muslin type fabric.
I went to their website thinking maybe I could get some seconds or something.
They really didn't have a way to contact them without calling.
I took this apart, and made into a zippered pencil pouch.

Thank you all for your prayers and support over the last month or two.
I think we are starting to climb out of the dark.
Things are looking up.

My goal is to keep this blog up like I used to.
I miss YOU ALL!

what's going on in my world

i wish i could say i had good news, i don't
i asked you all for prayer on a personal matter awhile back
never, ever think things can't get worse.

monday we were dealt a card that i had no idea how to play
we all prayed, and prayed and prayed some more
i know things will work out........eventually
but waiting it out is tough

i continue to ask for your prayers during this extremely difficult time in our lives

(i feel that i'm really neglecting this blog and i am, i'll be back on track one day, i promise...please hang in here with me)

I can Cross Stitch Too!

Becky posted this on her Facebook wall, wishing her kids knew how to stitch.
I saved it, and have looked at it every day since she posted it.

I didn't have any cross stitch cloth, hoops or embroidery floss.
I headed to Michael's in Boone yesterday and got all I needed to make this.

Thanks to Jackie for getting me started on separating the floss strands.  
I had a knotted mess.

Here's what I have so far.

I love the humor in this stitching..........
