Today marks one year of my father-in-law's passing. He lived a blessed life, 91 years, and was a wonderful example of a son, husband, father, grand & great-grandfather and friend. I miss him in the garden.
This was his music book from elementary school. And here is a sweet little song I just know you ladies will enjoy.
How about a little photo from my sweet friend, Terry. I made this apron for her a while back. She is also my crafting buddy. I asked for a pic to share something I made with my own little hands and she put together such a sweet showing. Her front porch is so peaceful and also includes a little pond with goldfish. Makes me smile every time I enter in. Thanks, Terry.
I was looking through some pictures today (looking for something else) and happened across this...a pillow made for a little Christmas Bazaar I participated in several years ago.
Start with a fresh cheery purchase from a local Thrift Store Market
Then add...a little quilted panel of chicky fabric, Home made fringe fresh from the fabric bin, Season with a yellow row of sequins, And just before serving add four little yo-yos with bright red buttons.
Gail, girl you have inspired me! After a visit to her Shabby Cottage Studio and taking the tour of her newly fashioned room, not still pics but moving video, I just had to set to work... doing a little organizing in my own craft/laundry room.
Whenever I go through a pile of stuff that has been neglected, I usually find a forgotten treasure. This is what I found today.
Sorry girls, I lost you. But now I will share you (help yourselves ladies, if you wish) so that others can see your ~sweet pink cheeks~
Oh my! This lady does the most fabulous work. I just had to share this with you. Hope you go over and see all Pat's wonderful creations. She also has a new book out that I am sure is a must have for you crazy quilters! I know I will be getting a copy soon. Love her bugs!
Kelli is hosting Show & Tell Friday. If you have something to 'show' us and 'tell' a little about it, there are those who would love to see. I thought of my DOLLY DUZIT but, of course she did not want to be alone...so here is a sampling of RED things from around the house.
I guess my outdoor plants love being indoors, where it is warm and cozy,
for they have bloomed beautifully!
But we are having a few warm and sunny days so I decided to display out on the deck this morning.
Like some of you, I can't pass up a crocheted work from the past... especially when it says 25c.
Fluttered by Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Betweennapsontheporch with before & after photos of projects.
Thought this was a great time to share one of my passions. Rocking! I can wander out in the morning with a cup of coffee to be in my garden and talk with my Lord. But before I know it I am playing in the dirt, still in my PJ's. I love it.

Here I am with my birthday JOHN DEERE GATOR! My sweet hubby watched me struggle with wheel barrows, wagons, and hand-trucks to move rocks from here to there. Now I can REALLY rock and roll!
Another view of the circle. Can't wait for spring so I can add some butterfly bushes.
Found this 'J' rock then set out to find 'O' & 'Y'
Just a peek of my front yard. So now you have...the rest of the story! ~RockCandy~
