Changing Things Up

I have been remiss in my posting of late and for that I apologize.

I am changing things up a bit.  I will be posting mainly to this blog incorporating my thoughts and projects into one.    So… here goes….


My thought of the day: 
  As I sit here sipping my hot chocolate with my little space heater going, I’m thankful I have a roof over my head and walls to shelter me from the cold winds outside. 


Back in 2007 I won all the quilt blocks turned in at the Logan County Piece Makers quilt guild meeting in February.   These blocks have sat in my fabric stash until this year.
Talk about putting something on the back burner…

I finally got them out, laid them all out on the bed to audition them and quickly realized I would be making more than one project out of the blocks.

I had hoped to make one quilt top out of all them but because of the different colors and styles of the blocks, when put together, no matter how I placed them, they just didn’t jive.

I have pieced together two wall hangings thus far and plan to finish them this week?

What project are you working on?

This beautiful collection of Vintage Florals by Beth Ann Bruske for David Textiles! 
There is a total of 6 1/2 yards of fabric in this collection.
 300 FOLLOWER BLOGGY GIVEAWAY!! by Leona’s Quilting Adventure.
To celebrate 300 followers, we are having a special Bloggy Giveaway! I love shopping at the Fat Quarter Shop and thought that Leona’s Quilting Adventure would giveaway one $25.00 gift certificate to one lucky winner!
Final Thoughts:
As the new week begins I wish you all a successful week in whatever you do.  May you smile each day and be thankful for the small blessing you have in your life.  
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
