Vegas Baby

Sent off another quilt this week to another great grand niece, this one in Las Vegas.   I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting her yet but have seen many photos.  I must say, she really is beautiful.  Our family seems to be growing by leaps and bounds.  We are all very blessed.

The quilt's name is Peeking Through the Keyhole.

Baby Flip-Flops

I recently received a request from my grand niece for a really cute pair of baby flip-flops she saw on Facebook.  Her 3 1/2 month old daughter, my great grand niece, (WOW....I'm old!!!!!) would love a pair........LOL.  Already she's "into" shoes....a real GIRLIE GIRL !  Gotta love it.

I'm sharing the link below for the pattern.     I very much recommend it if your looking for something quick and easy to make for a special little someone.

The Glass is Half Full

Happy Fourth of July Everyone!

The bad news is Arthur came for the picnic.

The good news is the garden is getting a good watering.

There's always a "good" reason to enjoy the day.

Simple Pleasures

Somedays I am in awe of such simple things.   Although I do enjoy putting laundry on the clothesline, today I noticed how beautiful the flowering shrub was blooming just below the pulley line, and it made a simple pleasure even more special. 

I am so very thankful....I just had to share the blessing.

More socks....Oh My!!!

Finally finished these two pair for two special people..... my dear son-in-law for Father's Day (the second sock was a couple of days late.....oops...sorry Todd) and my dear grand daughter who graduated from elementary school this week.  So very proud of her for receiving so many awards, especially the Presidential Scholar Award and Citizenship Award.  Way to go, Megan!
Blessings to both of you.

Blooming Boom!

This time of year is so magical, with all the spring flowers showing off there best finery.  I just had to share.

This rhododendron takes my breath away.

Irises and Day Lilies: a striking combination.
Along the stone wall

Sunshine on a stem!
These pinks remind me of home on Ontario St.,
way back when
All time fragrant!
Doreen's Japanese Irises
multiply every year.
A wonderful  and sentimental
 addition to the garden.

The court yard fountain....a tranquil secluded area to sit and read, knit or count my blessings........

A "Pieceful" Day

Listening to the song of a gentle rain as I piece together some quilt blocks, I am reminded of  how very blessed I am.
