What catches my eye…

Good morning!

It’s the last week of August, that means we only have…

Christmas Countdown

If you are creating your Christmas gifts this year, are you on schedule?

I’m not.  Yikes!

I’ll get done on time.

I have to believe that, I will get done on time.  🙂


Sometimes, I will take my camera along just in case something catches my eye.  This weekend it happened to be cows and hay fields.


Last week, on one of my lunch breaks, I discovered another flea market type shop.  A pack of 4 1/2 x 61/2″ scrapbook papers and a 36″ string of beads caught my eye.

This weekend I went to Hobby Lobby in search of fabric to coordinate with my Hoffman fat quarter.  I also found a pendant to go with the beads I found earlier in the week.

The turquoise and gold fabrics caught my eye.

I think they are a pretty good match for the Hoffman fat quarter.    I’m thinking of making a table runner with it.   I have to get it done for the December quilt guild meeting.

I am now working on a baby afghan and hope to have a picture of it later in the week to show.

I’m still working, or not, on the Log Cabin quilt.  It seems all these “little projects” keep cropping up and my Log Cabin quilt is getting pushed to the back burner.  I had originally thought I would hand sew it, but I think I am going to have to use my sewing machine, if I want to get it done by Christmas.

Well, I guess I better sign off.  My laundry is almost done.  I need to get it folded and on hangers, then get ready for work.

Have a great day!

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.
