It Came!!

My Sister Melissa loves me! She usually calls me on my birthday and says...something is coming! I can see her little girl smile when she says it! She knows me so well and we are connected at the heart! I love this necklace that she sent and I will tell you a few of the reasons. 1. The pearl. Pearl is my birth stone and pearl is the symbol of love this year, for how many years I have been married (29). Pearls are sand that are continually polished and finally evolve as something beautiful. They come from the sea.
2. Hammered Metal and silver. I have never been on of those fru fru girls and I like things homemade. I love the idea of being in being tempered and pounded into submission. We all work everyday at being better people and I have always been one of those that has to be hammered. I love the cleanness of refined silver. I love that they have to add things to it to make it stronger. I love the heaviness of the chain and the layered charms.
3. Words. I love words. Words have power! These words speak volumes to me and I love them. Thank you Melissa you too are known, understood and loved, my sister.
Happy Birthday to me...again!

My Dad

My Dad is an amazing man. My Dad is someone who has been there, lived thru it and is still true to the faith! I love you Dad
Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Father's Day

A Dad is a person
who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends.
A dad can be one
of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong
In all that you do,
a dad's love plays a part.
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart.
And each year that passes,
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad...
for listening and caring,
for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father's Day

The best day ever continued....

I am not sure why I could only load 4 pictures, but I couldn't leave out the rest of this amazing stuff!!
Roslyn sent me a towel with KANGAROO"S on it...if that isn't the most fun!

But look at the fun. When you open up the pin cushion you find an embroidered pin cushion with pockets on all sides loaded with fun treasures! There is a bookmark, some needles, a clothes pin...just look how amazing all this is!! I feel so blessed! I love the little scissors in the case, the thread, the pens and pencil, the tape measure with a sewing machine on it! Thank you so much. This is her first swap and mine also and I am sold! Thank you so much for trying so hard and doing so well! I love, love, love it!!

Civil War --Kingston, Missouri

We had a great time this last weekend in Kingston, Missouri. We were invited to make a quilt to raffle and be a part of the Civil War Reenactment festivities. It was a great weekend. Alan got to meet President Lincoln and Ron got a great new hat! And look at that AMAZING quilt show! We had a great showing and lots of participation! It was so much fun to all be out there together. We all got sunburned but we will live to do another quilt weekend in Cameron! See you there.
