Hello friends and welcome to my blog today! I hardly thought I'd be typing that one year ago to the day, when I timidly entered the blogging world!
BUT, I'm so glad I did!!
I couldn't possibly have imagined the enjoyment blogging friendships bring everyday to my life, but it's wonderful!I couldn't have believed there were so many kind, caring people out there, but there are, and it's amazing!
So this post is really dedicated to you all who take the time to read - and even leave kind comments.
THANK YOU from the depths of my heart!I'm not saying anything other than I am celebrating my blogiversary by some secret means!!All will be made clear later in the week!!! :-)
At the weekend I received the stencil I'd won from BeCca at Folk Art from the Harbor and was all set to paint but I was really under the weather all weekend with a dose of some nasty virus - feeling more like my self today - and got going.
TAAA DAAA! What do you think of it? I am thrilled with it so thank you BeCca for sending it all the way over the sea! Click here to go to BeCca's fab site and see more of her stencils.
I'm just so pleased that I took this shot as soon as I'd put the paint brush down so I will show you it again when DH gets it on the wall for me!
I got a couple of little items finished up, the first being this Easter pillow using a free pattern from Bird in the Hand Primitives. Just in time too!!
Thought I'd give a prairie bonnet a go and just kinda made up the pattern in my mind's eye as I went along and it's ok but not perfect...Had to hang it on the stairs to try and get it to look any thing like a bonnet or it just looked like a rag!!!Actually, seeing these pics, maybe it STILL looks like a rag!lol! Can't get it to 'pose' for me!!
Well, sweet folks that's about it for now.
Thank you all once again for all your kind words and encouragement to keep blogging.
You are the BEST!!!
Have a lovely week,
