July 24 - Continuing to mend

I had a blessed Spirit Led week, I hope you did also.

My husband and I rode with a son and his family to the Dallas Metroplex for the birthday party.

We had a great time.  Baby Daniel was one busy little boy, with lots of big and little people to play with.  

They had a cook out with kabobs and grilled chicken.  There were all types of fresh fruit like pineapple, and kiwi and fresh melons.  

After eating was going to be present time, but the babies…

July 17 - Under the Weather

I hope all have had some special Spirit Led days.  

It started with a bad summer cold, but soon moved into a sever case of bronchitis.  I am on the mend now.  But I will be requesting prayers for more healing.  God is good and faithful.  He is my strength.  

Through I have battled to sew, I was always too tired to concentrate.  I am back now though.  Yesterday I was able to make a toddler bib for my grandson that will be turning 1 next Saturday.  The bib is…

July 5 Another busy time

What a week.  I got a call early on Monday soon after writing my last post.  Our son, who lives a block away, needed me to baby sit.  He was scheduled to take her to his mother in law, but something came up there.  He had a scheduled meeting with the city manager about sewage backing up into his house.  He has been confronting this problem since he moved in 9 years ago.  The city has been trying to remedy the situation, but our son is tired of having to live in a house with concrete floors.…

June 26 - Oh my goodness

I hope you had a very Spirit Led week.  Again mine was a mixed bag.  

My friend sent a picture of her banner.  The picture is not real good and I hope when we get together again I can get a better one.  But here it is:

The colors did not come…

June 19 Mixed week

Welcome to a new week.  May it be Spirit Led.

This week was a mix of things.  The first part of the week was completing a yard banner.  It was a gift to my best friend.  We met for brunch on Wednesday.  Though we stay connected via email almost daily, it is really nice to visit in person.  We used to meet almost monthly, but now it is every 3 to 4 months.  Our schedules just do not meet up.  She loved her banner.  It was funny, she thought I had brought it just to show her…

June 11 - Domestic Spring clean

Welcome to another Spirit Led week.  I hope your past week went well.

For me, this past week was used to catch up on some domestic deep cleaning.  Not much fun, and definitely not needing a photo shoot.  LOL  It was still wet outside, so outdoor work was postponed again.  I would rather do the outdoors than the indoors.  Just as my husband went out to mow on Friday, it started raining again.  With all this rain, it is stirring up allergens.  I am miserable, with itchy watery…

June 5 - Downtime Week

Welcome to another Spirit Led week.  I hope this past one was great for you.

As stated in the title, it was a downtime week.  This does not mean that nothing was done.  I did do some weaving.  But I have been planning and designing in my head more projects.  I will be doing some bibs for Daniel for his birthday.  I am going to quilt a wall hanging or table runner so I can break out my Christmas present and actually 'practice' on it.  I received a …

May 29 - Memorial Day

First I want to take the time to thank all of the military men and women and their families that have served our nation.  Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.  Our nation would not be the same without you.  This also goes out to our first responders.  Thank you for keeping us safe.  

I had a wonderful Spirit Led week, I hope all of you did also.

I was able to complete the items for our granddaughters' birthday.  I showed you the pillowcase dress last…

May 22 - May showers

What a wonderful Spirit Led week.

I was kept busy with little projects and scheduling time.  I made a couple of gift bags for a couple of boys' presents.  Their party was Saturday though their birthdays were earlier in the month.  The boys are brothers and are about 2 years apart, 7 and 9, now.  These are the son's of the young lady (Rachel) that our oldest is seeing.  The one I taught how to quilt.  In fact, I slid her into my schedule this past week to mend a couple of spots…

May 15 - Busy week

I am hoping that you had a Spirit Led week.  Ours was trying again.  

About one week after the Canton tornadoes to the west of us, there was another storm that went to the east of us, setting down more smaller tornadoes.  I am thankful that this time no injuries or deaths resulted out of these storms.  Life in East Texas.  We have more possible severe storms due later this week.  So please keep East Texas in your prayers.  I believe the nastiness is due here Thursday and…

May 8th What a beautiful day

I hope this finds everyone filled with the Spirit.  

My week was up and down.  I was under the weather a few days this week.  I did get some weaving done though.

Here are some pictures of the banner.  I really need to get a wrought iron banner holder for it.  I used hook and loop on the back to make the hanging sleeve.  I was so amazed that it held up through the high winds and rain of last Saturday.…

I will need to get a better finished picture of my…

April 24 Trying to get a routine

Hello everyone.  I hope you had a Spirit Led week.  

I am trying to help my husband in the yard.  We have a quarter acre in town, so it has to be kept 'neat'.  If it were in the country, I would not be as concerned about it.  If you know what I mean.  So, I spent several days in the flower gardens, weeding.  They look so good after the weeds are pulled, so the flowers can shine.

I also did some weaving.  I am almost finished with the garden banner.  After it…

April 17 Passion Week is complete

I really do hope that everyone had a Passion Spirit Led week.  I know I did.  

Besides all the normal domestic stuff we all have to do, I was able to complete the hand sewing of the binding on the quilt and hand sewed on the custom label.  I was able to complete the transaction after Church services on Sunday.  Sorry no picture of me handing it over.  But I do have pictures of the 72 inch by 89 inch quilt.…

April 10 A mix of a week

I had a great week overall.  I did some indoor domestic 'stuff'.  You know, that stuff we crafters always put off.  I really did not spend anytime outdoors.  My husband was doing some burning of the cut off limbs from a hedge that had gotten out of control.  He has cut them down to about 3 foot tall.  They had been some 8 foot high, with all types of vines and baby trees growing up through it.  It was totally unruly.  When it grows back, it should be really nice.

Tuesday we…

April 3 Spring has sprung here

I hope everyone had a wonderful spirit led week.  Overall, mine was great.

I contacted the person in charge of the Easter Egg hunt and have not heard back.  I made up samples for approval.  I have not heard a word.  So, it appears that they are not interested.  That is ok.  

I need to get to weaving.  I plan on making a couple of 'garden banners' and embroider on them.  That way the design will show on both sides.  I will use the same color in the bobbin as the…

March 27

Morning friends and readers.  I hope you have had a wonderful week.

Not harping on my situation, but today is the first day I have not woken up without pain.  My back is healing slower that I had hoped.

I did not get any fun things done this week.  I take that back a little.  We had stopped by our high school FFA agriculture greenhouse.  They were having a sale on some flowering and vegetable plants they had started.  If you have ever gone to your local garden…

March 20 - the confusing week

I hope all had a great week.  Mine could have been better.  

While in the Dallas area caring for our grandson, I went to pick him up and something went out in my lower back.  It is healing slowly.

Since I was mostly out of commission, no crafts were done.  I had a hard time figuring out what day of the week it was, since I went to my sons' on Saturday and came home on Tuesday.  I just felt my days were mixed up.

I will share some pictures of my…

March 13 Preparing for staying with baby grandson

As I start my week (last week), I am torn.  I have a pulled muscle on my left side.  It hurts to move, breath, walk, sit.  Near tears.  My son wants me to come to stay with the baby, so he and his wife can get away for a bit one day.  Thing is, they live some 80 miles away.  I do not like driving in traffic anymore, though I was born and raised in that area. 

To make a long story short, I his twin brother who lives near us, was coming up.  I hitched a ride, sparing his brother driving…

March 6 experiment week

I hope that everyone had a good week.  Mine was going o k until I pulled a muscle on, I think, Wednesday.  I have had a hard time moving since.  

I did complete what I was doing for Easter. 

These are for our grandson.  He should be cutting teeth by now.  I will find out…
