A week of smiles

Hello, I trust your week is going good.

On this side it has been a week of smiles, laughter and good fellowship.   My brother-n-law Terry and sister-n-law Sandy were in visiting.   It is always a blessing to see them.  

We also welcomed our new nephew Mason, born over the weekend, and enjoyed seeing our great nieces and nephews.

Tuesday we had a “Girls Day Out” of shopping.  We hit several thrift and consignment shops.  All of us found something to take home.  I found a pair of slacks and a cute Christmas ornament.

One day this week, I received a package in the mail.   I had won fat quarters from a giveaway that Kris was having on her blog. You can check her blog out here  http://thequiltinggarden.blogspot.com/

Here are the fat quarters she sent.

I truly like them and am trying to decide what to make with them.

This evening the sun cast a orange glow in the sky.  I took this picture across the pasture in front of my house.

I also saw a single rainbow this evening but didn’t get a picture of it but one of my friends on Facebook got a picture of a double rainbow.  You don’t see many double rainbows.

Until next time…
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.
